Zero bad songs, but the "worst" is easily Never Destination.

changing my vote from retrograde to take the long way. It both feels out of place and slightly immature compared to the rest.

I can't think of a "worst" song because they keep changing, so that indicates to me that I could pick faults anywhere but why bother?

sometimes it's Retrograde, sometimes it's SBWM, sometimes it's TTLW, sometimes it's... I've thought "maybe this is the worst" about probably every song, depending on my feelings, depending on the day; and the same goes for the thought "maybe this is my favourite"

I have my frustration about the mixing of TTLW, but I love it, it has angular Matt groove and I think the simplicity of the melody really works for it; I also have a personal attachment to / interpretation of the lyrics

"Superblood Wolfmoon" for me. It's not a bad song, but it exemplifies many of my least favorite Pearl Jam traits, and it's the song I could most easily strike from the running order without hurting the overall arc.

Bottom 3:

Take the Long Way
Never Destination
Reteograde


Also a large gap between these 3 and everything else
Also I do like all 3
Also I still think Take the Long Way does’t quite fit on the album

I think this is exactly where I am. I would also emphasize that I really like all three of these songs, but I don't think any has been able to force itself out of the bottom three.

They've all grown on me, and the gap between these three and my "next bottom three" (Alright, Buckle Up, River Cross) has shrunk.

All six of those might now be at least 3.5-star songs, and Buckle Up gets 4 for sure.

I think it's one of the best songs on the album, at this point probably my favourite.

I officially changed my vote from Buckle Up to Never Destination. I still like the song and I wouldn't call it bad.

Gun to my head, Take the Long Way sounds slightly out of place production-wise, but I still love the song and its placement on the record.
