Totally agree - one of my favourites, actually.

It gets a terrible rap on here. The Puritan is a great little tune. Gets me bouncing. I know most people would roll their eyes in horror, but I'd love to hear it live. Won't happen of course.

This is the problem with The Puritan imo - it's only any good live.

At Margate it was brilliant. But it doesn't have anywhere near the same energy on the record.

I'm in the camp of loving New World Towers, think it is beautiful and love Graham's guitar work on it.

It's definitely a better live track but you're right, I don't see it ever being played again to be honest.

One of the best songs on the album getting kicked out in the second round, makes sense. :roll:

My Terracotta Heart!

I'm in the Towers camp too! It's actually my second favourite from TMW after Ice Cream Man. But seeing all the 'hate' towards these two songs, I guess I must be weird then :lol:


Anyway, GHOST SHIP for me this round.
