Im bummed, why is "Me. My Yoke, And I" so low on the list? yeah, its not traditional Damien Rice, but still a kick ass song.

guys come on. It's gotta be Grey Room, especially because it comes after Me, My Yoke, + I. While i like that song, i think it doesnt really deserve to be on the album and works better as B-side, like Woman like a Man. So, i consider Grey Room to be the a reward for listening to the previous track, a treat to myself for listening to Me, My Yoke + I all the way through.


I think that "Grey Room" is to 9 as "Amie" is to O. It's like the special gem hidden deep within the album, the most beautiful part of a rare jewel or precious metal. It seems to be the heart of the album, below the gleaming surface lies this one amazing song that really came out of nowhere

Hmmmm... i think that my favourite song on '9' is "Dogs", the music is so good, and as usual the combination of Damien's voice with lisa's is really great.

Have to agree with you 100%.
I've listened to the whole album, like thousands of times now, and this song still stands out a mile......
but each to there own..!

Ok, after giving all of the songs another fair listen, i may have misjudged "Me my yoke and I" when i voted for it. maybe because i was shocked that it was so low and that I react to this song strongly for personal reasons...

Therefore, i would probably have to say that my favorite would be accidental babies or rootless tree. and yes....grey room is up there as well.

I hope that wasn't sarchastic Timee, cuz i I actually like the 15+ minute long tone; Simple and elegant.

the singing bowl was described in the school paper as 15 mins of silence that were a bit creepy! i personally like it, it seems to bring closure to the album. and i really don't think timee was being sarcastic

i wasnt being sarcastic at all.

i feel that it has a musical ambience to it with its certain patterns and stuff. did you ever feel like it sung like a song?

i love it

its amazing, first listen elephant stood out. now its the most outstanding track.
with o i chopped and changed and realised delictate was my favourite but amie was the first song i heard back in 2001. still holds that special feeling.

elephant tries to hard. but yet succeeds. musically its brilliant and exceeds the rest.

I voted for the animals were gone cuz it's so fun to sing along. But I love to listen to accidental babies, what an intimate song!! One thing I don't understand is why 9 crimes is thought so highly of. I mean, I like it and everything, but it doesn't touch me like the others. Actually, the only Damien song I don't like is Moody Mooday. Can't bear it! Anyone agree?

I don't know if it's my favourite but Elephant just made me burst into tears. Which means that A) i'm feeling down today and B) it's a very powerful song.

It's left me totally exhausted.

A song's never done that to me.

I voted for The Animals Were Gone

The ending is just soooo amazing, that violin... It makes me feel happy and depressed at the same time.

I'm really surprised about how this poll is going.

On first listen; Dogs.
Now; Animals Were Gone / Coconut Skins

I've never not liked a song by Damien until Me, My Yoke + I. I just don't understand the point in it.

Rootless Tree is pretty good. I prefer the live versions better; more emotional, but I guess it's normal to lose that emotion when recording in a studio. It's the most mainstream song out of the bunch, hence the poll count for it.

Well, with that said, I'd say Coconut Skins and Dogs are more mainstream then the rest, but they don't have that many votes, so who's to say one way or another.

Accidental Babies doesn't seem very.. Damien. I don't know how else to put it. But good song, lyrically strong, but I just don't like it as much as Animals or Coconut.

I was really afraid of the new album. The first was so perfect, I couldn't believe that he can make such a great album again. I was wrong. I love ALL songs from "9"!
"The animals were gone" is good... but not good as the other songs. "9 Crimes" and "Coconut skin" are the best songs. But my absolutely favorite is "Accidental babies", it's so sad! So it was easyto choose my favourit song

elephant has long been a favorite of mine, as well as rootless tree, so i have a hard time choosing. but i voted elephant. Elephant makes me cry sometimes, and not many songs can really do that.

i voted for 9 crimes
the perfect opener and i can never seem to get it out of my head

I never knew the words 'i woke up and for the first time the animals were gone' could sound so... devestating! but they really really do!! its weird.. in a beautiful way!

Nevertheless, my favourite is accidental babies. having always been obsessed over beautiful lyrics, i adore it. I just.. adore every word! It makes me cry every time.. literally yesterday I had it on in the background and just burst into tears, and then told my boyfriend about a million million times how much I love him and appreciate him and adore him and couldn't live without him. it just made me think of loosing him, and about special things, like how people smell and being close, and also silly things like brushing your teeth before you kiss! love is kissing when you wake up in the morning together its telling someone they are beautiful when their eyes are swollen from crying and they have makeup down their face!!! but yeah.. it almost made me hysterical so i can totally relate with others who have had Damo's songs bring them to tears!
so sorry to write a boring essay there... whooopsss
