If I have to pick just one it would be Marooned, a superb instrumental.

The obvious "High Hopes", one of my favorite PF songs actually, they really did hit the nail on the head with that one IMHO

Hello Flame-Sky-Diver :) It's been a while.

I love both the instrumentals on this album, perfect marriage of Rick's keyboard and David's guitar.
I also really like Coming Back To Life, Wearing The Inside Out and Lost For Words.

'Wearing The Inside Out' is my personal favourite, with 'High Hopes' coming in close second. Regarding 'High Hopes', it is a rare feat that a veteran band produces a song that ranks among their all-time best in every way. I also like the last section of 'What Do You Want From Me', but the rest of the song is too generic for my taste.

On the other hand, 'Coming Back To Life' never really did it for me. It needs more cowbell. 8)

I'm shamelessly going for the hits: 'Take It Back' and (especially) 'High Hopes'.
Are there any other songs on this dreadful album? :twisted: :P

The one that sounds like a Boney M song.

I can't pick a single song, so I'll make a selection.

Cluster One
What Do You Want From Me
Poles Apart
Marooned
A Great Day For Freedom
Take It Back
Coming Back To Life
Lost For Words
High Hopes

Basically the whole album, apart from Keep Talking.

Take it back has some nice musical moments but the lyrical content makes me cringe, same with Coming back to life, fantastic musically, lyrics are a no no for me.

Cluster one
Marooned
Keep Talking
Lost For Words
High Hopes
Wearing the Inside

All superb in my opinion.
