The album has been out now for awhile, and most of us have had the chance to acquire it and listen to it a few times. So time for some meaty discussion. Which are our favourite tracks?

I would have liked to use the poll facility,but it only allows 10 options, and there are 13 songs to choose from, so I'll just count up the votes manually.

Select up to THREE songs. No need to order them 1 to 3 unless you want to.

---------------------------------


HOW DARE YOU LOVE ME
MAYBE IT’S THE RAIN
EXETER (THE WEDDING WALTZ)
FINDING YOU AGAIN
SOMEBODY’S ANGEL
THE THUNDER OF GOODBYE
THE GRAVITY OF THE WORLD
SOMEWHERE IN THIS CITY
HOW THE NIGHTS CAN FLY
MAY
SOMEONE TO ADORE
LET IT GO
PERSPECTIVE

2. Someone To Adore;
3. Finding You Again.

"How Dare You Love Me" is currently in the lead with 3 votes.

I admit it was a close call between this track and "Somewhere In This City" for inclusion in my top three.

Somewhere in This City wins for me.

Quite like Maybe It's The Rain. (Because I'm a moody bastard.)

As a song, I've always liked How the Nights Can Fly, but I think I actually prefer that one live than in-studio - preferably in some large, empty space with a hint of echo off the walls, a sense of hushed breath from silent listeners.

On the other hand, banjo.

So that's my 3.

Thanks for posting "How Dare You Love Me" and "Maybe It's The Rain" on the Music page!

Seems like there's another good one there...oh yes..."A New Year's Carol"...hope it touches everyone's heart!

Notable absence of votes for Somebody's Angel so far - does this mean the loyalty of Lind fans shines through...

Or...

...that voters so far have identified that it is not the strongest track of the set?

My first and second choices vacillate between:
Maybe It's The Rain and Let It Go. Both of those songs resonate very deeply.
I guess that number three would be.... How The Nights Can Fly.

In my case, I think it's a decent enough song, just not a contender for my top 3.

Well, choices are always difficult, but that's what drives us on in life.
In no particular order:

Somebody's Angel
Somewhere In This City
Someone To Adore

Maybe I'm just somehow attached to any song that begins with "Some..."?

Thanks for the great music, Bob!

and here comes Somebody's Angel, folks...!

To me, this means that some Lind fans enjoy his recording and delivery and not to the exclusion of tracks he's not written...

This surprises me...
