The big chest notes in Pyongyang are definitely lower than the ones in TIAL or To The End, also less frequent.

What's the order of the album in terms of elimination? Great fun, as always!

This whole thing got ridiculous the moment MTH was kicked out so early in the game. But at least the next two best songs on the album finished first.

Second worse song gets kicked off early? No surprises.

New World Towers is lovely. It has grown on me since my first listen. I think someone described it as having a 'timeless melody' which sums it up nicely. Would love to hear it live again but I'm not under any illusions haha.

The studio version suffers a bit from overproduction. Should have kept it simple like the live performances. But yeah, it's a lovely tune.

Yeah it's lovely. I particularly love the acoustic version on Last.fm. Properly good song that passes the test in acoustic format.

I Broadcast, My Terracotta Heart and Mirrorball all went a bit early in my opinion.
