Decision made: White Knuckles. As high as I am on Island of Fools right now, it's not fair to compare the two since WK still gets me amped after all these years, and the lyrics are spot-on.

I guess the awesomeness of Island hasn't hit me yet. I like it and think it's a strong track. But the love for it on this board is almost Blackbird/CoA level. And I just don't see it (yet).

... that said, I am glad TLH may finally get represented. Just not at Fortress' expense.

I'm in the same boat as you, Drew.

Tough choice but went with White Knuckles. One of my favorite AB songs live because of the Myles/crowd interaction. Island of Fools and Fortress were tied for second.

White Knuckles for me would probably win in any other competition when it comes to the heavier songs. But I can't vote against Fortress.

Same here. This one is tough with 4 great songs. Coeur d'Alene is a really underrated song, and Island of Fools might be my favorite on The Last Hero. And White Knuckles beats almost every song on every album...

But it doesn't beat Fortress.
Another photobucket casualty... :(

This is toughest decision yet. Couer d'Alene is rhythmic as all eff!!! Fortress is all over the place in an awesome way. WK has that super sick bridge. And IoF has the best transition into any solo of any AB song...maybe.



I think Fortress is the best song of the bunch. But Island of Fools is probably the one that gets me amped the most. WK has my favorite vocal melody of the bunch. C d'A though has a special place with me. Whatever I pick is just going to change in the near future and then again after that. So for now I'll pick C d'a. No never mind. IoF. But Fortress...!!!!

Poor Save Me. I actually love that song. The long note Myles holds out always leaves me in awe. But it's in elite company here.

White Knuckles is the best song* they've ever written. Spectacular all around, I can only imagine the reason it's so far behind here is that it's nearly a decade old.

Fortress is amazing too, but none of the other options come close.

*not called Blackbird. Obviously.

Okay, thanks. I'm fine with it either way, I was just wondering, since it's technically a ODR song.

Yeah I see your point - however it is Battle of the Track "Numbers".

Wow, that really was a close one! Not my vote, but I'm still a big IOF fan and I'm happy to see one from the new album won.
