    Dr. Eddies Wingman Brighter than thousand_suns

    In the spirit of the "favourite track by track" thread and inspired by reading the "Worst of the Beast" thread, I propose you list your least favourite track for each track number from 1 to 12 (counting by origninal releases, leaving Hallowed Be Thy Name as track 8 on NOTB and so on ...)

    1. Be Quick Or Be Dead (not easy, as I like all the opening tracks)
    2. Holy Smoke (the other candidates being From Here to Eternity and you know which one)
    3. Man On The Edge (good song, 3 is a great number - the other candidates were No Prayer for the Dying and Can I Play With Madness)
    4. Fear Is The Key (this one was easy)
    5. Look For The Truth (one of my least favourite tracks on TXF)
    6. The Assassin (again, easy)
    7. Gangland (however, I could've picked both the Blaze 7's as well - not my favourites from these albums, definitely)
    8. Chains of Misery (had to toss a coin to decide if this one or Hooks in You would go here)
    9. The Apparition (if someone puts To Tame A Land here, anthrax is on its way by mail before you can say Bring Your Daughter ... to the Slaughter)
    10. Drifter (I like it, but I like the other 10's more)
    11. The Unbeliever
    12. -------

    I refuse to put Fear of the Dark on a "worst of" list, so my "worst"-album would have only 11 tracks.

    Cosmiceddie Back From The Edge

    Alright, I've changed my list. However, mind that 'Twilight Zone' was not on the original U.K. 'Killers' album. It is included on U.S. and Japanese editions only.

  16. Unknown One

    Unknown One I see the ghost of navigators.

    1. Wildest Dreams
    2. From Here to Eternity
    3. Mother of Mercy
    4. Fear is the Key
    5. The Mercenary (easily the toughest, all songs got at least a 6/10)
    6. Gates of Tomorrow
    7. Gangland / Quest For Fire
    8. Hooks in You / Chains of Misery
    9. Bring Your Daughter / The Apparition
    10. Age of Innocence
    11. Weekend Warrior
    12. Fear of the Dark

    I must say Fear of the Dark is well represented in this one...
    Also CI, The Aftermath is the worst #6 song? :eek:
     
  17. Crimson Idol

    Crimson Idol Caveman

    Yes, it's called different tastes. Crazy I know! But let's look at the other options then:
    Strange World, Innocent Exile, Run to the Hills, Still Life, Back in the Village, Stranger in a Strange Land, The Prophecy, The Assassin, Wasting Love, The Educated Fool, Dream of Mirrors, Gates of Tomorrow, Out of the Shadows, Isle of Avalon.

    If I wasn't to choose the aftermath, it'd be Educated Fool or Innocent Exile. Me and TXF do not get on, at all, ever. After the first 3 tracks it is usually turned off because the rest of the album grates at me so much.

    TBH... if you want me to put all the #6's in order? Dream of Mirrors > Isle of Avalon > Wasting Love > Run to the Hills > Gates of Tomorrow > Back in the Village ... unsure of this bit ... Educated Fool / Innocent Exile (need refreshing on that one) > The Aftermath.

    However, if you want to play this game. Mercenary worst #5? You're nuts. Even Foro, the lover of all things 90's, has put a blaze song under Mercenary!
