By far my favorite album, this definatly was the soundtrack of my life when I first bought it.  This is the most difficult to choose from (thankfully I already decided a while ago), but I went with The Analog Kid.  The lyrics "When I leave I dont know what I'm hoping to find, and when I leave I dont know what I'm leaving behind" still are some of the most haunting I have heard.  In a close second is Subdivisions, and Losing It, but there isnt a single song that doesnt still send chills down my spine when I hear them.

ALL of them.....

I chose Countdown. Kind of gives you chills now after the latest Shuttle (Columbia)disaster. THe boys were invited to the 'Countdown' and recorded some of the Mission Control sounds.

"Countdown" because I'm such a fan of the space program, even after the tragedies of late.

"Analog Kid" a close second.

Losing it.
The violine is kind of strange.

For the lyrics I must choose the Analog Kid:
When I leave I donīt know what Iīm hoping to find...

Initially it was Subdivisions, and just Subdivisions. It was a long time before I could really listen to this album. It wasn't until HYF that I really got into Signals.

Had to go with Digital Man for this because it is on our plate in Trilogy and I am putting extra effort into getting it down.

I was always affraid to listen to Losing It for fear of losing my abilities. Still hard for me to listen to because it is pretty sad. But a great instrumental section.

Analog Kid, the solo still blows me away even after 20+ years.

Analog kid, but I keep coming back to The Weapon. It describes a lot of the political  situation very well....FEAR.

New World Man was written in a day, and tells the truth.

I think that deserves my vote.

So it gets it. (Are we obsesed with third lines here?)

Didn't go for my namesake here...

The Weapon

Like the lyrics...

Can any part of life be larger than life?
Even love must be limited by time
And those who push us down that they might climb
Is any killer worth more than his crime?
