Rooftop, Snow Outside, Drunken Soldier best 3 song run on AFTW

I highly recommend listening to the entire album in the morning and going for walk. I wouldn't change anything with the final 3 tracks. Perfect.

    I'm not a huge fan of Rooftop but I absolutely adore SO and DS on AFTW.

    I like the vocals and lyrics in the last part of Rooftop:

    Gave you the best of me
    When you said good bye
    Should have taken the rest of me
    See the morning come up, come up
    If you're going out tonight
    Maybe i catch your eye
    Maybe we'll lose our minds tonight
    We'll fall until we fly

    Best 3 song run is Snow Outside>Drunken Soldier and then restarting the album with Broken Things.

    they are connected in rhythm. It's what makes it such an emotional ending.

    In my opinion, from Sweet on is gold.

    I am in a fairly good place as a fan right now.

    Same for me. I'm starting to skip mercy and gaucho when I listen (not that I don't like mercy and gaucho, they just get old quick). The rest of the album never gets old for me, I love it.

    I love the entire album. The best part is the last three songs. Just perfection!

    Those songs are just sooooooo good. Through the Riff in there and I'm happy as can be.

    I'm happy that I was right: when I first listened to Broken Things and Snow Outside they were both in the lower half of the album for me, but I got the feeling that they would grow on me with more listens and thankfully they have. Both are just oh so good.

    So far, I like the first three song run, but that may change very quickly. Or slowly.

    It's a toss up between:

    The Riff => Belly Full => If Only

    Rooftop => Snow Outside => Drunken Soldier

    Broken Things ---> Belly Belly Nice ---> Mercy
    The Riff ----> Belly Full ---> If Only ---> Rooftop ---> Snow Outside ---> Drunken Soldiers

    Each run is amazing!!

    Have to agree OP.

    Rooftop > Snow Outside >Drunken Solider is just perfect.

    I still cannot get over how fantastic the bridge in Rooftop is.

    Yeah the bridge in Rooftop is fucking brill, shame the chorus is so grungy in not a good way, like I Did It. The saving grace for the chorus is a) the rest of the song is great b) the bridge from @ 2:07 through to the end of Tim's solo @ 3:15 is sickeningly good and c) Rashawn's trumpet noodling during the final chorus is great.

    This and The Riff were my two least favourite songs on the album through my first listen, now I love them both madly.

    I agree with this 100%. I still put Drunken Soldier and the Riff ahead of Rooftop, but it is the best 3 song run for sure.

    My favorite run is Broken things to Drunken Soldier. I had to add a couple songs but its not too many over the original three song post. only 11 total

    in all honesty the last three are my favorite run but I also love riff>belly full>if only
