It'll be interesting to re-take this poll when we all have the album and have listened to it many times... to see what tracks grow on us over time.

Is it just me or does anyone else think that the Tibetan Singing Bowl music at the end might leave the album open to attacks by the critics looking to belittle Damo. The media loves to be nasty and if they could use that to take the piss.

PS. can i change my poll answer?? (j/k!)

It`s really very hard to pick one!
At this early stage I voted for Accidental Babies.
But in time it could change.
Animals and Yoke are close behind.

Well I put my vote for Accidental Babies cause I think it's just class, its on constantly on my playlist at work on my pc pissing off my collegue!!
But I think we'll just have to see when I can get my hands on it to see what will be my fav track.

I loooove Accidental Babies. I like the live version better because it sounds more emotional than the studio version.

Yeah, I also went with Accidental Babies, but Animals was just awesome, and I loved Dogs, too. I do agree, though, that Accidental Babies live does have a bit more kick to it. But, that happens, occasionally; on the flip side, I thought that Animals had a strong live feel to it. Wow, amazing, can't wait to own it.

Elephant
Mostly because if I had the kind of writing talent that DR does, its a song that I'd write. Very easy to relate to.

Other favs though:
Dogs
Coconut Skins
Accidental Babies

They say you have a lifetime to write your first album, then a few to write your second one. I think it's true in this case. I mean, we all love Damien, right. But what made the first album so perfect is that each and every song was one of the best songs you've ever heard. I think there is a few good songs on the second... but there is even some I skip. Well, maybe it's just me.
I think I'm sad right now.

Well, actually it isn't, since a lot of these songs are older and are
not necissarily written in the last few years.

Anyone else as impressed as I am that every song is the favourite of a few people? And I think if we had proportional representation you'd see some of the songs with less votes jumping up too... as they seem to be lots of peoples 2nd or 3rd favourites.

I'm really surprised that Dogs and Coconut Skins are not more peoples favourites... they're neck-a-neck for me. (Should that be neck-and-neck? Never wondered about that before...)

I voted for "the animals were gone"
But... I love all of them, everytime I listen to a song I say to my husband, I think that's the best song on the album.. lol.. so clearly, it changes.

I voted accidental babies. Though all of them are amazing, accidental babies made me tear up like a baby in Santa Barbara. Every day though I like different songs more and more. Animals Were Gone is obviously amazing, yesterday I was on a "me, my, my yolk, and I" kick, and today Grey Room really stuck with me. I love it when you can hear a song a few times, and something happens in your life for the good or bad, and when you hear that song the next time, the lyrics just click. Love it!

I really love 'Dogs' too... and it only has 2 votes so far?! Maybe it's the name is putting people off...

All of them are bloody awesome. Though, in comparison to the original live version of 'the girl who does yoga,' I think the studio version is less intensive. What made the live version was his fast guitar strumming. It just doesn't seem to have the same effect on me.
Nevertheless, it's just amazing.................absolutely love it!

I voted 'The Animals Were Gone', but everytime I listen through the album it just takes me on another journey and different songs start jumping out at me. Can't wait to properly own this album.

I can say that, after two days of listening, there's nothing I'd surely skip.

Well, perhaps Yoke every now and then. Sometimes I think it's great,
sometimes I think it's freakin annoying.

'Rootless Tree' - no question!

But love the Jack Johnson-esque vibe of 'Coconut Skins'

HOW has Dogs only got 2 votes? That's just crazy talk. I can only assume it must be somewhere in the top three or four tracks for most people.

Impossible choice
I went with Grey Room - I like different parts of it everytime I listen- but Elephant is one of my favorite of all his songs- and I could see liking Animals a lot

for some reason i still like the live versions of most of the songs better (dogs, nine crimes) - whether its because Ive heard them before or because the studio ones sound a little to ...smooth? I dont know- but of course the album is great and Ive listened to it several times already
