I always thought "Feeling Gravity's Pull" was an odd song, especially for an album opener.

Had never heard it before, but that is indeed a curious tune.

I guess I appreciate ( ? ) this one more now than I did when I was 14 and had trouble containing the explosive diarrhea

Love this one.  "The Elder" is a masterpiece.

As much as I can't stand Mike Portannoy and Wet Dream Theater now, my choice is simple...




"6:00"  "Awake

EPIC

Yeah, sounds more like a Cure song than an R.E.M. song.

Jerry described it as slamming your head into the dashboard...yeah that sounds about right.

Try waking someone up to this with it cranked to 10...they'll piss themselves.

Oh I was thinking about posting that one, glad someone did. Brilliant song though, it's extraordinarily heavy, and yet really very pretty and rich in harmony.


How about what I'm hearing now on my new Klipsch ear buds:

No real intro to it either. Just Layne screaming "AH!" right away. Very unique way to start a song.
