    I absolutely love how those synths blend with the guitar up strokes. Groovy little bassline. Such a tight song.

    Hard to say, but 'Dirty Work' is up there. It's between that, 'Aja' for the whole arrangement and 'Hey Nineteen' which, now that I'm older, has revealed its lyrics to me on a deeper level (though I love the melody, chords and the arrangement just as much). What the heck, I'll give it to 'Hey Nineteen' for everything it does for me as a listener. 'Cousin Dupree' is like a close relative to 'Hey Nineteen'...and you know what I mean...

    "Home At Last." I feel like I lived it.

    I also lived "Babylon Sisters" but it's not even close to the rush of endorphins that "Home At Last" gives me.
