    Unthought Known is a close 2nd. Tracks 5,6,7 are the pinnacle.

    Amongst The Waves and Unthought Known...easily 2 of my favorite PJ songs...impossible to decide which one I like better.

    I think Amongst The Waves is actually quite "underrated."

    I wish ATW was played more live... I'm still looking for that *perfect* version... the studio version is pretty damn perfect though!

  • Unthought known is my favorite. I think it's an underrated album. I know by reading some threads there are many who don't like the album but I have certainly enjoyed. Can't wait for the next one.
  • i'd say just breathe, unthought known and force of nature.

    If we could only put Supersonic on side one and slide Just Breathe and Amongst the Waves to side two of that vinyl... oh baby.

    The fact it's a PJ album.
    Every song is great. Some better than others but I am glad the boys continue to release albums that seriously kick butt.
    Nuff said. 8-)

    100% correct. Welcome back to hit writing Stone. Let Stone write! Let Stone write!


    And the The End is just a badass song. Let Eddie write! Let Eddie write! Oh yeah, he already does most songs. Let him continue to write.

    I agree. Supersonic should be track 5. I wouldn't mind if it was taken off the album... even though it's already too short.

    Yes! Stone writes many gems, and I know there's more to come. Some of his songs, however, are but stones.

    The first performance of Got Some on Tonight Show w/Conan.

    After that, it was all kind of downhill from there...a mediocre album, very few US tour dates, dwindling quality of live performances, and crappy sounding bootlegs. I really hope the next album is a redemption for them - both in song quality and live performances.

    meh...

    just breathe is a beautiful tune. the rest of the album is pretty forgettable.

    Verse = great
    Chorus = cheesy and forced (almost like two different songs merged together)

    Just breathe is one of the 3 worst songs on that album.
    And so you see, I have come to doubt
    All that I once held as true
    I stand alone without beliefs
    The only truth I know is you.

    Force of nature/got some/gonna see my friend - the rest of it I can take or leave
    I don't mean to offend anyone, a lot of what I say should be taken with a grain of salt... that said for most of you I'm a stranger on a computer on the other side of the world, don't give me that sort of power!

    there is no argument. The winner of the song game was Unthought Known and I concur
