Between the Wheels was, if I'm not mistaken, the first song to achieve radio airplay from p/g, so I'm not sure it's a "cult song".

Vital Signs is the best of those
listed, Available Light the worst.  IMO, of course.

That solo in CTTC - just killer and ripping.

Vital Signs is half cooked and boring - could’ve been great.

Turn the Page is clearly my favourite of these seven songs. It's the only one that I would and do look for independently, the others to me are songs that I mostly listen to as a part of the album. I've grown to love HYF in it's entirety, and Turn the Page is one of the great songs on it. It's a rocker, and the guitar solo is great.

I don`t think anything from MP can be too cult-like. But if we`re allowing it, I`ll take the magnificent Vital Signs. Elevating or (evelating) or escalating or deviating from the norm is worth singing about. I`ve always related those lyrics.

It's certainly better than "I wish I had that instinct, I wish I had that drive".

Be nice to have that, though :eyeroll:

I don't believe Between The Wheels ever got any significant radio play. Distant Early Warning is the big hit off GUP. Also, nobody knew BTW the times I saw them do it live. So, it was never a radio hit since that's all 90 percent of the audience knew anyways.
