I'll include a very reasonable hint that Jim posted three years ago: PLEASE DO NOT VOTE "THE LAST HERO" SONGS JUST BECAUSE THEY'RE FRESH IN YOUR MEMORY. PLEASE CONSIDER ALL SONGS AND HOW MUCH YOU LOVED THEM WHEN YOU FIRST HEARD THEM. TAKE YOUR TIME VOTING.

As much as I love the End is Here, I have a soft spot for Breathe Again, and never understood why this forum hated it so much.
So here goes my vote !

Because it's a bland copy of Before Tomorrow Comes.

I can hear the connection, but a lot of AB songs do sound similar.
Breathe Again is an uplifting song, I love its vibe, and the note at the end is one of the highlights off AB III. It's been one of my favourites off this albums since day one, and I'll take it over Shlip, Ghosts or Show Me a Sign any day of the week.

Cant't believe Fallout didn't win the last round. This time I voted for Breathe Again. I'd say it is on par with The End Is Here.
Overall Nr.11 is a rather weak number in the AB cosmos.

That's the case with almost every band (as every band has a specific style of songwriting), but Breathe Again and BTC are way more similar than your usual AB songs. The only other AB songs that are that similar to each other as well are Still Remains and Last Of Our Kind (and the latter is so much worse as well).

Breathe Again is not a bad song, but it's kinda ruined by how uninspired it is.

Totally agree with that! However, I must admit - I do get Life Must Go On and All Ends Well muddled up. Perhaps its just me?

Aaah no, you're absolutely right, that's the third AB example. All Ends Well is a copy of Life Must Go On as well (and once again, I love the first iteration MUCH more).

I can understand this. Never liked All Ends Well much, before I compared it to the TLH ballads and realized how much better it is.

I wouldn't say it's either better or worse that You Will Be Remembered or Twilight. They all just fall into the category of "nice" AB songs.
