POLL: Favorite Lead Single?

Postby Timotheus » Tue Jul 26, 2016 9:55 am

Now that the album version of Show Me a Leader has been out long enough for everybody to hear (if you haven't click here). I thought it was appropriate to make this thread again.

Which lead single do you prefer? Will Show Me a Leader do better than Addicted to Pain and reach #1 like Isolation?

Here's the thread I made when Addicted to Pain was released: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1446&
Addicted to Pain was the clear winner back then.

It's a toss-up between "Isolation" and SMAL. Went with the former since for me that song is the perfect blend of heaviness, catchy melody, and just being the perfect little package for radio without compromising the AB sound.

SMAL might have won if the intro wasn't so cut down for the single.

Had to go with the classic OYE. I mean, that was the first song I heard from the boys and will always remain a favourite. Rise would be my least favourite...even though I still like it a lot.

I LOVE SMAL, but it'll be hard to touch Rise Today for me. Maybe Schlip.

It's still Open Your Eyes for me. Even though I haven't known AB for all that long, it still feels like a nostalgic song. Also has one of my favourite solos.

Runner up is a toss up between Addicted To Pain and Show Me A Leader.

I'll give it to Show Me a Leader (full version). Isolation used to be a favourite but ever since Fortress came out, it's seemed slow and ponderous to me. Addicted to Pain is probably second, great energy in the verses in particular but the beginning and chorus of Show Me a Leader tops it.

How well it'll go over on radio though, I have no idea.

I was super blown away when Isolation came out. Mainly because I expected a 'Rise Today' and suddenly Isolation was blasting in my ear. Nearly wet myself. So for nostalgia sake: Isolation.

SMAL I think is best suited to be a single, that one is damn catchy!

After a lot of thinking it's a tie for me between Open Your Eyes and Addicted To Pain. Show Me a Leader and Isolation are tied for 2nd place. Still like Rise Today a lot.

Gonna go with Addicted To Pain this time.
