As of this early point, I would rank the songs as follows:

01.Starblind
02.The Talisman
03.Isle of Avalon
04.The Alchemist
05.Coming Home
06.Mother of Mercy
07.The Man Who Would Be King
08.El Dorado
09.When the Wild Wind Blows
10.The Final Frontier

Honestly WtWWB will probably move up because it is pretty damn good, I was just very underwhelmed by it, I was expecting something bigger.

I think Coming Home is the worst song, but there is no clear worst song. I think WTWWB is actually fantastic. If you were expecting Rime, you weren't going to get it, but damn I think it's great.

WTWWB gives me sort of a "Clansman" vibe. The melodies feel kinda Celtic.

I didn't like Coming Home at first, but it's growing on me.

"Mother of Mercy" has a strange chorus, and Bruce is realllllllly straining himself, but the rest of the song is solid. Very heavy.

Straining himself indeed. I think there's no way they pull that one off live.

I like the album, some of the longer songs are just too long IMO, it does not lend itself to casual listening, not saying that's a bad thing, its just hard to find the time to sit down and truly devote yourself to 9+ minutes of a song, unless you have time to spin the entire record

Hears figuring they'll play the final frontier, Eldorado, mother of mercy, coming home, and the alchemist for the album tour and probably one of the other longer ones, because they typically play 6 songs from a new album, saiv AMOLAD (of course) at least that's what they did with BNW and DOD, they played 6 from each. I'm pretty sure they played 6 from FOTD back when it was new too either that or it was 5, but anyway 5-6 songs from a new record save AMOLAD seems to be their pattern.
which 5-6 do you all think they'll play either or which would you like to see them play?
I don't think they'll do another AMOLAD its too long of an album.
