My complaint with production is that Marks harmonies are hard to hear.

The build up to the chorus in Watch Your Words is probably one of my favorite AB moments.

And the riffage everywhere in the song. The little leads thrown in between chords. All that stuff. Amazing.

Oh yeah, and how about when that final pre-chorus ("To truly see...") goes all heavy instead of clean guitars?! :headbang

Thats what i think about every time i think of this song, so good!! Myles voice on this song is perfection! "To truly see well you must have faith, oh the RIIIIIGHTEOUS they cant wait NOOOOOOOOO" What a way to push that song into the stratosphere.

Watch Your Words was the first AB song I ever heard because it came up in some YouTube playlist.

My Best Buy order has shipped!

It's also the most fun part of the song to sing in the car. :yes

So who knows anything more about the UK-only HMV exclusive of the album ? I read somewhere the bonus-track that was mentioned in Dutch Aardschok-magazine, "symphony of agony" is supposed to be on it ? Anybody heard about that ?

"Symphony of Agony" is "The Last of Our Kind".

Symphony of Agony is Last of Our Kind. Another title error like the Outright/Never Say Die situation.

Man, Best Buy got my copy of TLH to my house 2-3 days early even with standard shipping. The lenticular cover is really kind of cheap, though. Luckily it's just stuck on with glue dots and just comes right off.

Of course I have. The ONLY thing I'll say is that it wasn't worth the 12 year wait (for me, anyway) and it definitely sounds like a b-side. It's a decent song overall, but definitely b-side.
