Need to be pretty quick around these parts apparently.

The Handler remains by far my favourite song on the album. It is absolutely brilliant though so that's not necessarily a bad thing.

My fave is Aftermath, if The Globalist ended or made a smoother fade into the piano ballad section of the song it would be it.

I voted Drones, because it needs the love. Really though, Drones, Reapers, and The Handler tie as my favorites.

Hard to tell. probably The Globalist, but Reapers, Defector and The Handler are there.

I went with The Handler, although I like Reapers just as much!

Honourable mentions for Dead Inside, Defector and Aftermath.

Still not feeling The Globalist. Citizen Erased felt like one song, this feels like 3

The Handler. Can't wait to hear it live.

Got a nasty feeling I may have selected the wrong option on the poll though!

Great song on it's own, but way overhyped.
That is the best review of a song. Ever.

The Handler was my favorite from the first time I heard it, and none of the others came close before or since. It fits right in with the OoS and Abso greats.

1: Dead Inside - Alright I guess. Kind of like the little solo after the first chorus. Not the weakest album opener ever, but by no means the best either. 5/10

2: Shouty Man/Psycho - Burnt myself out on this after a handful of listens when it was released. Lots of loud guitars and drumming but it feels a bit soulless and by the numbers. 4/10

3: Mercy - Really like it, but then again I am a fan of layered vocals and power choruses. Decent pop song. 7/10

4: Reapers - The 'Animals' of the album for me in that everyone seems to love it, but I could take it or leave it. I do like the vocal effects though, and the finger tapping intro is great. 6/10

5: The Handler - Yeah, this is the best on the album for me by a considerable margin. Falsetto is well-used, the guitar middle piece is really good with the building drums and the ending really does remind me of Showbiz so that's a big tick. 9/10

6: American President Guy/Defector - I like this because it's so silly. Pretty catchy riff and the chorus makes me smile. 8/10

7: Revolt - Not nearly as awful as some people seem to think, but it's just not that interesting. Filing it alongside Micro Cuts, Falling Away With You, Soldier's Poem and most of the previous two albums as a song I will listen to again if listening to the full album, but won't actively seek it out. 5/10

8: Aftermath - Like it! Can definitely hear the U2 - One thing at the start. The ending goes a bit Rod Stewart but as the album's love song it fits quite nicely. 7/10

9: The Globalist - Er, hmm. The first part is really quite lovely - for me it kind of goes south when the riff kind of gets hacksawed onto what was until that point a really lovely sweeping song. Then, just as you get used to it and it starts to build, a forgotten take of United States of Eurasia gets sellotaped on the end. Starts brilliantly, ends weakly. 6/10

10: Drones - Actually, it's alright after a few listens. Not really my kind of thing, but a pretty unique album ender and quite haunting. 6/10

Overall: 6.3/10

If I have to slot it into a ranking of albums, I'd go:

1: Origin of Symmetry
2: Black Holes & Revelations
3: Absolution
4: Showbiz
5: Drones
6: The Resistance
7: The 2nd Law
