Fuck it, I like them all equally. I just can't rank them. They're all so musically diverse. It's gonna take a while before I start talking about favorites. Gotta listen to the whole album first.

3. Go Out
That's exactly my opinion!! Also, I got to appreciate "Go Out" more, by listening to TATMOU, LS and the whole album in general. For me, it wasn't too much rather than a noisy track that suffered quite a bit from the "cut and paste our jam into a song structure" production, but now it all makes sense to me: alongside "I Broadcast" it's the punky, noisy Blur that we all love! If the album was all like that, I would have personally been very disappointed, but since the album as a whole is very melodic but still very eclectic (only as Blur can do), these such different songs fit perfectly one next to the other! Can't wait to hear all the studio versions of the songs!

1-Lonesome Street
2-There are too many of us
3-Go out

The first two are practically tied on my preferences, Go Out is definitely my least favourite so far.

Went for Go Out, but only just!

I think it's testament to the strength of all three songs that a consensus has hardly been reached! There isn't a bad one amongst them.

Exactly. All great songs, all very different. Quite a coup the lads have pulled off I think.

Ranking the whole album is going to be very VERY difficult.

1. Lonesome Street
2. Go Out
3. There Are Too Many Of Us

Thought I liked TATMoU more than I liked Go Out... but ever since I listened to the live performance of Go Out it has been stuck in my head! So addicting. Gets better overtime with each listen :D as for Lonesome Street, it's just an instant hit!

Lonesome street hasn't clicked with me as instantly as the other two, although it is still enjoyable enough.

Lonesome Street and Go Out by far are my most favorite tracks that they've put out so far. They've both been on repeat for a while since they first came out. :-)

I really couldn't rank them they are all great but completely different. TATMOU took awhile to show itself to me but now I love and very hypnotic and emotional.
