“Temporarily Blind” is one of the best songs ever written and I wish there was more music like it, it’s pure perfection. I love when the build-ups finally drop into the fast part of the song and then that amazing melody and those subtle leads over it kick in. That fast section is really one of the best parts of any song ever.
Seconding that Carry the Zero is a perfect song. For some reason that squeal in the guitar solo at 1:40 is one of those great subtle moments, and the way the rhythm guitar floods back in for the next verse too. I love how that verse just keeps escalating and escalating.
I’m probably going to change my vote for the third song 50x. I have it set to “You Were Right” right now since it delivers the most consistently on the album, but the live versions of “The Plan” (especially the solo) and “Broken Chairs” are right up there.
The Plan is my favourite. I remember initially thinking they may as well have not bothered with the rest of the album because it was such a good opening. That is no longer my opinion (although I haven’t listened to it in awhile)
