Can we talk about how beautiful Alternate Route to Vulcan Street is? Surely their best opening track, if not one of the best opening tracks ever.

When I first heard it, I thought of it being, up until the lyrics, like an instrumental take on The Tourist, and after that it's a bit like The Beta Band. Above all it sounds like SFA. That approach to the quiet synth songs they like doing.

Speaking of The Tourist, that's the first thing I think of when I hear Run! Christian, Run! structure-wise.

Yep, totally. Up until then all their opening tracks had been less than two minutes long.

Slow Life is wonderful, it's in my top 20 ever.

I also really like Some Things Come From Nothing. It reminds me of Alphaville's Forever Young.
