Nice to Meet You and Ballad of a Poet are my early favorites, but I went with Ballad, it's such an emotional song. I usually listen to the whole album and then repeat Ballad as a 10th song :)

I went with Nice to Meet You. I feel like this is a song they've been trying to make for a while, and I was starting to think they couldn't get that perfect blend of poppy and rocky. I was wrong.

Just listened to the entire album again and could have easily picked between 5 other songs, but "Last Train" takes it for its different, upbeat sound and the tribal sounding percussion, the guitar work - the vibe of the song is haunting, slightly exasperated, urgent yet hopeful. There are a lot of really good lyrics in the record as a whole, but I feel like this song kicks it up a notch by being something I can relate to on a personal level as well from trying to be there for someone else. Searching for the "somethingness" or life purpose from multiple perspectives - the one needing help and the one who is trying to help and maybe even the one who is both.

And I think this song is perfect as the album closer.
And if I don't make it known that
I've loved you all along
Just like sunny days that
We ignore because
We're all dumb and jaded
And I hope to God I figure out
What's wrong

I was torn between Ballad of a Poet and Nice to Meet You. I ultimately went with Nice to Meet You.

The lyrics are so moving in Ballad, but I have to agree the perfect blend of lyrics, rock & pop is found in Nice to Meet You. This whole album is a great listen.

I went with Nice to Meet You. But the records so recent that it changes day to day. Ballad and Let Me Live Again are 2nd and 3rd.
