    It's almost impossible to choose just one here. But I have to go with "Cause to be Alarmed" Jamie's guitar riff & Cy's pissed off vocals are way too cool! "I'm Life" & "The Flow" in a horse race for second.

    Thumbs up

    Driven Out. . .

    when I heard the version on 1011, it made me go back and check it out.

    It rotates for this disk... right now it's Subterranean...althought when I first got it I was singing Driven Out over and over in my head...

    Calm Animals, though it was VERY hard to pick it over Driven Out.

    I blame my wife for this pick. She has decided to learn the lyrics to the normal rotation of songs the guys have been doing the past couple times we have seen them in concert to prepare for seeing them this summer and she is really stuck on "Driven Out" right now. Sings it around the house....in the car....in her sleep [ok, maybe not here but I wouldn't be surprised]. Close second is "Calm Animals".

    Has to be Calm Animals. It's always been one of my favourites, even more so after hearing live so many times. Jamie's guitar solo during this song was always fantastic.

    Like I told Jeanne...Twenty-five years from now, I'll be the crotchety old man in the front row hollering, "Play Precious Stone!"

    Shred of Evidence

    After I heard this song, I listened to almost nothing else for two weeks, and never got tired of it. Even better live.

    Driven Out = No Brainer

    Driven Out is by far the best song of this set (refer to my sign on name). Such an important directive for life in a song that rocks! A distant second is The Flow.

    Looks like almost 50% of the voters agree with you there. Driven Out is dominating this poll like no other song on any other album.

    If Driven Out gets 51% of the votes or more, I don't see any point in taking the Calm Animals poll to round 2. Anyone agree? Disagree?

    What are you thoughts on this Hobson?

    My favourite song on the album has to be Gypsy Feet, a great track and one Ive been trying to get my hands on for ages, as I recently managed to get the Calm Animals album off the web (in mp3 format of course lol!).

    I love the record. It's so rockin and the band sounds a little bit harder then on the other records. Cy is shouting a lot on some of this songs...

    I voted for Subterranean!
