The Analog Kid is easily one of their best songs ever IMO. Had to pick that one, although I really love Subdivisions, Chemistry and Losing It, as well. Not to mention The Weapon and The Digital Man...! LOL I really love everything on Signals apart from Countdown, which is just a little bit too dull for my tastes.

Think I need to listen to this gem of an album tonight...

I've had to go with Countdown for sheer nostalgia - I remember waiting for the Colombia launch while at school and the sense of excitement that filled the whole palce.

Signals, I've got to say, is my least favourite album.  Nothing to do with the songs which, except for Chemistry, are fantastic but because the production is muddier than a cup of McDonalds coffee.

Without a doubt, Subdivisions. It is what I would call my high school theme song. I was a geeky, nerdy freshman who definitely did not "fit in" when this came out so it has a lot of resonance for me. And I concur guys, the video was perfect.

Subdivisions

meant a lot to me when it was released. Althouhg, at the time, I hated the keyboard dominated sound.

Voted for Chemistry.

I love Signals. At the moment I'm listening to it the 3rd time this day. I could pick Subdivisions, The Analog Kid, Chemistry, The Weapon or New World Man. But the other three songs are also excellent. In the 90th The Weapon was my favourite. Now it's perhaps Chemistry. Sometimes I'm dancing through my apartment when I hear this magic song. It's so exciting and beautyful, and it contains one of Alex's best guitar solos.

Little known fact, the guitar solo for Chemistry was not recorded in a sound studio.  Alex turned up his amplifiers and pointed them out towards the mountains to gain a natural expansive and echoing sound to the guitar tone.  It is a very well put together song, nice choice Barchetta and welcome bekloppt.gif
