For some reason, I can't seem to really get into 'Rootless Tree' like so many people can.
So I voted 'Grey Room.' At times, I cry when I hear that song.

Since I first voted it has now changed to "When the Animals are gone!"

I love the lyric -

I know I've been a liar and I know I've been a fool
I hope we didn't break it, but I'm glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now, yet your light is shining through
I cover my eyes, still all I see is you

Those last two lines just wow.

Maybe we're ready for the second run at the poll now that we all know the album properly?

It was really hard to decide between Elephant and Me,my yoke and I because I love them both so much right now...so thanks Damien for making a cd where every song is good,and it's hard to choose!

Hoover with headphones! If you have an mp3-player.

Makes hoovering...ALMOST fun.

I voted in "The animals were gone" but every day I have a new fav song..depends on what Im feeling and how has been my day and things happened to me...its the same with the albuns...sometimes "o" is my fav,sometimes its "9"...but the most important is that Damo is always my fav...
Im just drowned within his sea's song...

Just like everybody says, it's quite difficult to focus on just one favourite song because the whole album (and O of course, too) is so great and it's pretty hard to pick only one out of them when you actually like almost all. And although I'm usually bad in making decisions anyway, it'd probably be Accidental Babies because it sounds so emotional and straight from the heart...

Hard to pick a favourite so I just picked the song that tends to stay in my head the longest.. Dogs.

My favorite would have to be Grey Room or Elephant, his voice sounds so beautiful.

I love accidental babies, great lyrics 'I know I make you cry, I know sometimes you wanna die, but do you really feel alive without me<3'. I also like me my yoke and I. actually all songs are great (hm maybe except for the animals were gone)

I voted for 9 Crimes, because the rest of 9 sounds a lot like O but with not as much feeling. Rootless Tree comes second for me, with Accidental Babies third. Also, because I'm a Lisa fan, 9 Crimes sticks out for me most.

this was tough for me. i just love this cd. i've worn it out the last couple of months.

i gotta go rootless tree. so powerful, and it's fun to play.

i like the guitar version much more than the piano.


oh and first post

I'm another Accidental Babies fan.
I really love Rootless Tree too but I don't think the album version has as much passion as other live ones. The one on youtube from Taratata is heartbreaking, (that's a good thing!)

Grey room and Sleep don't weep make me feel nothing.

^Observant!

Coconut skins has been my favourite since the release, and still is. So bouncy. Or maybe I just like bounty bars too much...

After initial listen it was definitely Rootless Tree. But now that time has passed and I've absorbed every song, it has changed to Accidental Babies. The great thing is, it will probably change again.
