I like James' backing vocals on Wattsville Blues.

She Is Suffering. It's the imperfection that makes the Holy Bible perfect. Or, something like that.

The guitar riff that perfectly captures laughter (but embellished) on Engage With Your Shadow. I'd love to hear James mimic speech and talking in his guitar solos.
They can be melodic too!
And if Nicky is singing like he is on The Left Behind, the next time they go into Engage With Your Shadow territory, I'll be able to punch the air and know I was right!

In a decade, the original will be more valuable because of that song. Sounds like revenge to me.

Engage With Your Shadow is really cool title, and makes me think of Babylon 5 (which for me is one of the best TV series ever). ‘Now get the hell off my CD player!’, or something.

Your Love Alone is actually a great song, I'm just sick of it.
