My wife says ' Leave That Thing Alone' but I'll 'Stick It Out' anyway. I'm 'Nobody's Hero'. Just 'Animate' and 'Cut To The Chase' mister 'Double Agent'. 'Your Speed of Love' has got me caught 'Between the Sun and Moon' so invade my 'Alien Shore' or else I'll put out your 'Cold Fire' and withhold my 'Everyday GLory'.

But seriously folks, Cut To The Chase!

Lotsa good choices on this one, Animate, Cut To The Chase, and Double Agent are high on my list, but in the end I went with Leave That Thing Alone.

Gotta agree, the way he dragged out the words "Sister to the boy inside of me" when he sang them on the studio I've always loved.  Every live version I've heard, he sings em short.

Studio version of this whole album just kicks ass.  The only one I heard that was interesting was in the DVD "A View fromthe Palace" in 1994 he sang Cold Fire - love that version for some reason (and his comments before it with the country guitar)

This is the easiest one of all the albums for me. Cut to the Chase all the way, this song seems to represent so much about how my life was going at the time. I absolutely loved it from the very first time that I heard it.

The country intro(Cold Fire) from the boot is cool too RR. I had forgotten about that until Pixey brought it home from Scranton. We saw 2 shows on that tour and they did that at both of them.

This is agreat album, but Double Agent is a masterpiece. Again, very cool elements to it. Excellent drums and a crazy guitar solo. Honorable Mention to Alien Shore, LTTA, Animate, Sun and Moon, and Everyday Glory.

This one is a VERY hard one to decide on. This album has some unbelieveable tracks on it. LTTA, Animate, Cut To The Chase Man just all of them. I went with Animate though. As I am going through these it seems that alot of these come down to the lyrics, the ones that touch my heart and the feelings that I associate with those particular songs.

'Double Agent', cause its so 'bizarro-cool'. One of their biggest departures since 'Red Lenses'.
