Edit: And Dave's wordless falsetto part is the best.
Nice words.

    It's Rooftop and it has been for awhile now. I was real happy to get it at Bristow, even though the LL were on it. I just love the live version when it slows and the music when it speeds back up out of it is awesome.

    Have not listened to this album in quite some time. Don't plan on changing that anytime soon either.

    Re: Today your favorite song on the album is...

    1. Drunken Soldier (I don't get how this song isn't more popular on the boards)
    2. Broken Things (Crime this never gets played)
    3. Snow Outside
    4. If Only (GF loves it and it has grown on me)
    5. Rooftop / BBN (Both fun but not favorites)

    I still like AFTW more than BW, but I seem to be in the minority on this board. I do hate Gaucho though, makes me cringe when I hear it.

    I also like AFTW more than BW. I absolutely love the opening, first verse, and first chorus of Gaucho, and then I lose interest during the bridge.

    I'll add to your list.

    #. The Riff (excellent song, crime it's not played in the acoustic set)

    Re: Today your favorite song on the album is...

    1. Snow Outside
    2. Broken Things
    3. Belly Belly Nice
    4. Mercy
    5. Drunken Soldier
    6. Rooftop
    7. Gaucho
    8. The Riff
    9. Sweet
    10. If Only
    11. Belly Full - not a bad tune, but it's just too short and only features Dave. I wish they had not wasted the song spot on a Dave solo song. Sweet already feels like a Dave solo song.

    Gaucho and The Riff aren't too far apart from each other. Lyrically The Riff is far superior, but musically I prefer Gaucho, as I'm not a huge fan of the shredding guitar solo at the end of The Riff. I really wish the solo at the end of The Riff was a violin solo. That would bring that song up quite a few notches if they had done that, in my opinion. I have the same problem with Time Bomb. I love the song up until the hard rock shredding and screaming at the end.

    Overall I just think Away From the World is such a great album. I still remember the excitement I felt the first time I heard it. It just felt like DMB. I wish they stuck with Lillywhite and built upon what they started with Away From the World, but I'm holding out hope for Cavallo's second go. He did a great job with Big Whiskey. It's really up to Dave and the band and what they can produce musically/lyrically. Other than Black and Bluebird I am not overly impressed with the tunes they've tried on the road this summer. We'll see though.
