Damn, you reminded me I haven't played that one enough.  Probably because we still haven't had a snow day yet in my neck of the woods.  For now the opening track. Big smile

The line "the world is so loud", on a snow day it seems eerily quiet when you go outside.  We have ice storms about as often.  You hear the crackling of limbs breaking off trees.

It is so completely effective, the whole track.  Few albums pull you to the theme as quickly and successfully.
oh yeah

I could easily say that it's the 50 Words (for many reasons; even for having Stephen Fry in it), but Snowflake and Tahoe waft me senselessly. I may listen to it again and decide.

In some places snow is often regarded as a nuisance around here it is a gentle thing, reminds of a Genesis song:
"Within the valley of shadowless death
They pray for thunderclouds and rain
But to the multitude who stand in the rain
Heaven is where the sun shines"

Only two votes so far and three commentators.  Sad.

No doubt.  In my book a better album than Swilsons, but will surely lose to it.  Unhappy

While crossing the Lhakpa-La...That part is totally mesmerizing.

Wild Man for me, followed by 50 words.
Have you seen them Khajiits?

I can't choose. Haven't listened enough times yet. In time though.

"Wheeler Street", with Mr Sir Elton John, is quite wonderful!

Indeed!!  It's incredible how it pulls the image of the creature to your mind.  I get the strangest vibe from that song.

Don't know if you read this, but Kate said he strolled into the studio and laid it down in one session without any prior knowledge of the song.  Pretty impressive vocal. 
oh yeah

Overall, Wild Man. Misty is incredibly good too. Well I guess they all are. Among Angels hasn't hit me as hard yet...

That's also my choice. I terribly fell in love with it (I fell in love with the whole album, actually, but this song is my top)
followed by Snowflake.

The album has a great make-up....the first three tracks very slow, brooding, needing some patience to let it envelop you....after nearly a half hour of that you get three more active songs.....then another soft, slow nightcap to finish.  
oh yeah
