The Top Ten

1 Peel the Paint Peel the Paint

Undoubtedly my favourite song on the album. The first half is extremely nice and relaxing, with some great use of violins and nice subtle, yet technical drumming. The second half is why this is one of my favourite songs by this band though, the heavier riffs combined with amazing energy create such a powerhouse of a song, which is all topped off by a great guitar solo and drumming on the level of a King Crimson song, utter perfection. - kempokid

2 Schooldays

The vocals in this track are absolutely astounding, with the way it's layered so perfectly to create a dense, yet lovely song. Other than these amazing vocals, I also really like the way the song becomes much darker and quite eerie about halfway through. - kempokid

3 Prologue Prologue

I love the melody of the intro, and the sections with vocals show what's to come on the album, that being amazingly intricate vocal harmonies and layering. - kempokid

4 Three Friends

A very good closing track in general, with all around decent work from all instruments and a great instrumental outro. - kempokid

Pretty good song, for a band I dislike. - AliciaMae

5 Working All Day Working All Day

I love the brass instruments in the song, as well as how fun it is to listen to it. This is definitely a more simple song compared to many others, but it stills sounds great. - kempokid

6 Mister Class and Quality Mister Class and Quality

A good, faster paced piece that leads into the final song very well. - kempokid
