The only thing it's got going for it was a cool album cover.

Maybe we should start planning a party for the winner?

We could go into the chat room and have a listening party.  :)

Or we could stay right here and listen.  :)  :)

I don't go that far, but I do think it's a great album. Red Lenses is the only dud on it, as far as I'm concerned.

I voted Signals today. As many great songs as there are on it, it has Chemistry, which is just...meh. And Losing It. Actually, Losing It is enough just by itself to sink Signals, at this stage of the proceedings. The song just brings me down. And I don't need any more help with that.

That's what happens when you are young.  You think you will be forever young.   And then, you learn "that you are only immortal, for a limited time."

Some people just don't have the right chemistry to enjoy Chemistry.  Great (but often overlooked or dismissed) song.

Oh, it's not that the song doesn't resonate with me. It resonates all too much.

And as far as immortality/mortality is concerned, I learned that lesson very early as well.

I just think it makes the album drag a bit, that's all.

I do too, but I think the reason that is is because it doesn't have a real definable hook with the title in the chorus repeated over and over.
