Oh god...this is gonna be hard!

1. Hex
2. Endless
3. Under Your Spell
4. The Lowest Low
5. No Tomorrow

Hex and Endless may be the top 2 at the moment because I love how upbeat they are and happy they make me feel! Especially Hex, it reminds me of Oceania which is one of my all time favorite TBM songs. Under Your Spell is the most relatable song to me on the album so far, fell in love pretty quick with it because of the lyrics and that synth! The Lowest Low hit me with emotions the first time I listened even before Chibi starts singing and No Tomorrow...do I even have to explain? \m/ haha.

I have no idea if this is accurate it's really hard to choose right now!! I want to put them all at #1. The whole album pretty much! I feel this is gonna change with more listens but who knows!

1. Games
2. Games
3. Games
4. Games
5. Games

I love it. It has everything I love about TBM, the pithy lyrics, the unique melody, the catchy chorus. Reminds me a lot of 'Down'.

Although tbh I haven't listened to the album enough yet to make a top 5. But so far it'd be something like this:

1. Games
2. Under Your Spell
3. The Lowest Low
4. Endless
5. One

I've noticed a lot of people seem to really like Games - it's growing on me, might eventually make my top 5

Oceania is one of my all-time favs too. I haven't listened to Hex much yet, although I do love the lyrics of 'One' and 'Endless' because they both give off the Oceania vibe

I've had the chance to listen to Hex a few more times but unfortunately I'm still not getting the Oceania vibe I am however getting a Nighttime vibe lol, seriously, compare the lyrics:

She breaks my heart and blurs my eyes
But love is never easy
A magic made for tragic minds

Binds of hex and magic
A sight to blur your open eyes
Blinding love so tragic
Tonight your heart is broken

I wouldn't be surprised if they came up with it by re-writing Nighttime or something, it's crazy similar.

This is my 3rd or 4th listen (normally, it would be my 20th by tonight!).

1) Hex (as soon as the titles were released, it was my favorite and now that I've heard it, it's still my favorite! Because of the music, lyrics and themes! )
2) The Lowest Low (I began crying as soon it started playing-very happy tears despite the sad lyrics in the pdf booklet that I read)
3) Without You (I get a very "The Cure" vibe with it-bonus! She says "love song" )
4) No Tomorrow ("Blue"-like vocals. It kind of sounds like Destroyer part 2.0 in the intro )
5) Under Your Spell

Ooohhh yess!! I thought of Nighttime too especially with the "blur your open eyes" bit from Hex. Love it.

My top favorites have changed. All Of Nothing needs to be added as well as Games but no idea how to order everything. Hex and Endless are still my everything at this moment

This will probably change the more I listen to it but as of right now, mine are:

1) One
2) Hex
3) Endless
4) Counterpane
5) Games

It's really hard to choose though, I love them all!

Thumbs up

Agreed that it's hard to pick a handful of songs, but the stand-outs to me are, in no order:

One
Endless
Games
Unkind
The Lowest Low

I really hope they add Endless and Games to the live set list!

Wow I've listened through a couple times and really can't decide a full top 5 but I'm absolutely in love with this album already. This may change but if I had to choose a top 5 it would be:

1. Without you. Wow I love this song. Surprised many don't have it in their top 5.
2. Endless. One of the best songs to end any album ever imo
3. Hex. Brings me back to pins and needles a bit
4. All of nothing
5. No tomorrow or games
