Seriously, I just don't like it. I like plenty of other songs with unusual time signatures. Next to PJ I think Tool is probably the band I listen to most, who are well known for their easy 3 minute long 4/4 structured songs. But please go ahead with your easy generalisation.

Seems like a lot on this board is still as arrogant as when I left it years ago.

In LV's defence I think he was targeting a certain stereotype of a meathead PJ fan, and not suggesting that you're a "Bro" - you're about as far away from that as you can get (and believe me, that's a compliment friend :) )

take the long way may have moved up

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

Not terrible songs like there have been on the last few records.

It's not bad but I don't get much emotionally, musically or lyrically from Comes then goes which seems to have very few votes and lots of praise.

Of those receiving the most votes - SBWM as a single was not good but it works well in sequence for me; I can't understand the choice as a single. Retrograde sounds like a Backspacer song and production (more so than LB which I've seen mentioned - almost identical mix to Amongst the Waves) - and not surprised to see this was from a Brendan O'Brien session. It's not terrible though.

This song clicked even more for me last night listening to it on vinyl.

Today I finally remembered what the chorus to "Retrograde" sounds like

I'm coming round on it as well. I think I went in with low expectations after reading reactions here. Its a growing earworm.

I really don't understand the hate for Retrograde, it's a pretty calm song. I will concede it reminds me of Backspacer but with a more mature sound. I guess it also sounds a bit like The Ascent of Man from R.E.M.

I don't "hate" it. It's just clearly the worst song on the album.

To me it's Come Then Goes, it reminds me of Gone or Thumbing My Way and I just don't like that style. But it's not an awful song, it just isn't clicking for me.

Maybe it's mainly the production/instrumentation that I don't like, because this is actually kind of nice:
