Side 2.  Arrow is my favorite song off of the album, although every on song on there is great as well, but Arrow puts side 2 just over side 1.

I can understand your anger at me, but what did the horse I rode in on ever do to you?

No vote. It's too good.

Side 1 by the narrowest of margins. Scorched Earth is my favourite of the album, but every track is great.

Scorched Earth is my favorite too, but Arrow is so close that the strength of Sleepwalkers made me choose Side 2.

I am with ScorchedFirth here. Scorched Earth is my favourite track, very closely followed by The Sleepwalkers. I prefer The Undercover Man by many noselengths above Arrow, so I choose for side 1.

Easy. Side 1. The emotively deeper stuff.

Side 2 but really it's too close to call.

Side 2, just because SE is my least favorite on the album.

I lean towards side 2 a bit more. It's got my favourite VDGG track, and a great opener - one Hammill's best vocal performances. I was never really big on Undercover Man.

Side 2, but that was close.

Very tough one. I'll go with Side 2 since it has my favourite track on the album (The Sleepwalkers), but both sides are perfect.

Side 1.  Arrow is my least favorite (though I still like it).

Side one is one build up of intensity, almost no one ever succeeded in a run for 20 minutes in this way.
