One of the songs I mostly skip is Eulogy, not because I don't like it but because I want to sing along to Peggy Sang the Blues as soon as I hear the album start.

I find Glory Hallelujah just kinda unnecessarily harsh and rude, really, the style just adds to the rubbing-nose-in feel of it.

I think GH is a great song. Imagine it was the same music but different lyrical content - no one would have an issue with it.

As Frank has said before / everyone has different beliefs. Makes the world and music far more interesting.

As unnecessarily harsh and rude as people all around the world committing atrocities in the name of their God?

fuck no! it's just a song! but it's the one that makes me go 'ugh' and hit the skip button. It's not because it's a bad song, either, I can see that it's decent, a good singalong and that, I just feel uncomfortable with the level of certainty, and mockery of belief in something that we can't prove either way. And it's not because I'm strongly religious at all, either, I'm agnostic-quasi-pagan at most (in other words I'm superstitious and like celebrating the change of seasons,) it just leaves me feeling uncomfy.

This is difficult, so I'm going to cheat and name a few. (Sorry!) There are so many that I really love, but Sons of Liberty really doesn't do anything for me, (an opinion which tends to be super unpopular), Must Try Harder, Undeveloped Film (interesting as a story but I'm not a fan of the song itself), I don't love The Road, and though I was never a massive fan, I've developed an intense dislike of To Take You Home, for which I blame Evan.

I like Tell Tale Signs, but I can't listen to it in company, makes me quite uncomfortable.

+1. Not a Sunday school teacher, I've just heard it enough times. The only one I regularly skip when I'm playing albums.

Sons of Liberty is in second place.
sons of liberty is easily one of my favourites, wow

in my opinion it's perfectly fine for Frank to share his beliefs, though I'm not religious myself, I take it in a 'we're in this together look out for one another' kind of way

I actually quite like Glory Hallelujah, he may not have the same personal beliefs as myself but I think he's free to share them.

Broken piano & Undeveloped Film, pure dribble the pair of them in my (probably unpopular) opinion.

Broken piano would almost be one of my favorite songs if those dang drums didn't kick in
