Where's "Solace"??!! I don't mind it now, but it took me a while to get used to - the other TG songs (Anneke era) I liked straight away.

I voted for "Beautiful War". It strikes me as a football (soccer) anthem of sorts - because Holland won/lost the World Cup, perhaps?
(I may not know much about sport, but I know I like The Gathering. ;) )

I haven't listened much to Always... and Almost A Dance, seeing as I really don't like growls and doom metal and all that. I gave them a try but I just can't like them...

But other than that - my vote went for We Just Stopped Breathing. It's so terribly boring and sleep-inducing.

Other canditates (some of those on the list are great songs, so I'll just list some others I don't like):

Theme from 'The Cyclist' - What the hell???
Beautiful War - I agree, it's not good. I just don't have a reason why, I don't like the song - that's it.
Golden Grounds - Often skip it, but it has a nice guitar but just find the song to be boring.

Fear The Sea, Pathfinder and My Electricity are great songs! ;)

Well, I love all TG songs, the only one exception is Shot to Pieces, I think the guitar and voice there is of a commercial style, it is the only one song I don't like.

Sorry, I know some fans will kill me because of this opinion :( , but I am just honest.


i agree, taht is the only one i can skip easily, i don´t like it...

neither "my electricity", but just for the chorus, seems to me like that ayreon song. but, i really like the sleepy buildings version.

I guess none of the ones you listed!
These songs are kind of different but not necessarily bad.
At this point I have to admit that I'm not convinced this next songs should have been released in the albums:

1. My Electricity (talks about love and so on, something very common in the music today)
2. Liberty Bell (very commercial)
3. Shot To Pieces (boring and at some point just too simple)
4. Saturnine (I really don't like this one, I'm sure the ones that will defend this tune were in love and depressed, sorry to say but it was TG's worst moment)
5. Debris (simple and kind of too much electronic)
6. Monsters (repetitive and I don't know what the heck with the remixes (¿?))
7. You About It (commercial til the end)
8. Shortest Day (sound like Garbage (both, the band itself and trash))
9. In Between (the same as the previous)
10. Solace (do I have to say something?)

"Treasure"...
the West Pole version still irritates me....vraiment de la gnognotte... trop naîf... got to skip it.... Talking about the whole chemistry. I didn't want to hear it on stage. I even checked the setlist sheet before the band started to play the first song... I know... shame on me. mais je m'en fous. lol

But fell in love with the accoustic performance. I don't say so because i had the chance to hear it. It's just what i feel. It's gorgeous.

Otherwise, I love all TG today (mode pigeon head on) ... even "commercial" and "love" common things..
even Debris, the one i think i mentionned here some years ago.

With a very great majority: 'How to measure a Planet': 24 minutes or so of boring landscapes. If they had leave that song out (well...it isn't a song it has no words and hardly vocals) all the songs of that album could be fitting on 1 Cd and then it came close to 'If_then_Else'.
