Best alt-J Song Ever! Nice Job Lads!

This is probably my favourite song. I LOVE IT!

Not only the best Alt J song, best song ever! Glad my vote put it number 1 where it deserves to be!

Favorite song, nothing else beats it

I can listen to this song non stop. best alt j song, and one of my favorites of all time by any band

It's weird that trying to describe how beautiful this song is is making me kind of emotional- it's just the most perfect song.

Taro is amazing. Too good to be put into words. At first I got hooked on the rhythm of the song and I already loved the song. Once I Googled what the lyrics actually meant, the song just had more emotion and depth. Definitely better than the hip hop music nowadays.

One of the most beautiful songs I've ever listened to. Simple as that.

This is my favorite song, and it should be in the top 5. the song is so melodic and is so addicting. one of their very best songs, honestly. you won't be disappointed.

Clearly their best song. The whole album is a work of art but this song is just so...musical.

Easily should be in top 3. My personal favourite of the fantastic album. - PenderK

5 Tessellate
6 Left Hand Free

This is by far their best song from This is All Yours, it may strive away from their typical sound, but this song is way too damn catchy to go unnoticed. Fantastic chorus, excellent guitar rifts all around, definitely deserves to be in top 10.

First heard this through Captain America: Civil War. Fit perfectly!

Great song that you can just feel happy listening to

This song sounds like it came from a commercial

It might sounds funny, but I cry each time I hear this songs, the build up, the melody, the instruments... Everything is perfect, definitely one of my favorite songs from alt-j and one of my favorite songs of all time

8 Every Other Freckle

Gotta love the drumbeats, abso├čutely spectacular

This song is so weird but so amazing. Genius.

loveee it

9 Something Good

Very lovely piano, and tender lyrics

It's their best song!

10 The Gospel of John Hurt

Absolutely Amazing tribute to Aliens!

This song is so creepy, but at the same time so beautiful. There's nothing like it.

The Contenders

11 Nara

The people below said it better than me but this is not only my favourite Alt-J song - but also just one of my favourite songs of any genre, why? Because its beautiful, complex and you get lost in it every single time. Probably in my top 10 songs I've ever heard and I'm more of a metal guy.

┬┐11? This is the ultimate #1.

Stick around after Arrival in Nara because this is where things get epic. At about the three minute mark, this song just explodes into a wall of thick synths, twinkly percussion and eerie vocals that you'll lose yourself to.

Amazing song. Huge alt-J fan and I'd have to say this might be there most beautiful and complex song. Love the tempo changes. At the 2:57 mark the song just explodes with the most amazing instrumental alt-J have ever done.

12 Warm Foothills

Their best musical, lyrical, poetic and sexy song. Too short, but glad it exists!

13 Dissolve Me

So underrated! Amazing song!

14 3WW

I love this song! So much emotion in the song and music video. - A.F

This is an extremely underrated song that is absolutely beautiful. Though the start may be slow, those who are resilient and patient will be pleasantly treated to a masterpiece.

What a complete song. Alt J claims this is their best work so far

This album might just be their best work yet...

Nothing really like the original. It's like a whole new song with the original lyrics.

32 Hit Me Like that Snare
33 Portrait
34 Leon
35 Interlude I (The Ripe & Ruin)

The sound of only the voices is just perfect, as it continues to Tesselate. Great Interlude. I don't know if I should consider this in the top of best songs, but it's just pretty good.

Great song
