Best song > A Billion Balconies Facing the Sun
Worst song > Golden Platitudes

The rhythm of All We Make is Entertainment is awesome.

You can't really judge a song on a 30 second clip, so I'm going to remain neutral. Although a couple do sound quite good.

Not counting the two songs that have had a public full studio version airing...

Hazleton Avenue and The Future Has Been Here 4 Ever sound like definite album highlights. Really interested in hearing the full versions of The Descent and I Think I Found It as well.

The rest I can't really make my mind up. Some sound somewhat uninteresting, some sound somewhat interesting, but all in all they all sound like the small clips they are - can't really get anything clear out of 30 second takes from random parts of the songs.

Should be a swell album tho.

Can't really tell from 30 second clips but I've not been blown away by any songs I've heard as far from this album so I doubt I'll be the biggest fan.

From what I've heard so far in the snippets, the demo's sound better. To me, anyway.

I wasn't making a point there, I was sharing my opinion! I'm over the poll thing now.

Ooh I'm liking what I'm hearing. Sounds like how I was imagining it to sound; string sections, big choruses etc. Impossible to rank the songs based on hearing a 30 second clip of each song once, but I'm really liking the sound of the title track at the moment and The Descent (Pages 1 and 2).

Roll on September 20th!

Sounds good right? Has a proper summer album feel - which is why its getting released in september! Just from the clips I can tell that the compostitions are of a higher qualty than SATT.

When I first heard the demo of the Descent i thought the melody way too simplistic/obvious - but i guessed there would have to be some accompany/harmony or what not going on on the album version - and there it was - a beautiful string section harmony making the chorus work great.
