What's your favorite song from Songlines?? I know many topics have been posted about this particular album, but I just recently picked it up so bare with me. I'm a little behind the curve lol. Anyway, I think this is by far the best "album" that the DTB has put out. It is much more cohesive and has outstanding production quality. Not to knock their previous efforts, because they were all very good discs, but it seemed as if they were all over the place. The other albums sounded more like a collection of songs rather than one cohesive unit.

That being said, what song off of Songlines is your favorite? By far, the one song that jumped out at me comes at the end... This Sky is just brilliant!!!

Peace

I agree. I think that Songlines is the best album dTb has put out. My favorite song would also have to be This Sky as well. Derek has great licks on that song and Mike's voice is unbelievable in it. With of course, the rest of the band to back it up!!

DTB IS THE HOTTEST BAND OUT THERE RIGHT NOW!!! Watch out

This will change day to day with me. I love "This Sky" too, but today I'll have to say "Crow Jane".

i have to disagree with all of you,i'm really disapointed about this record i really digged the two other ones though,the only songs i like on this one are volunteered slavery,sahib teri bandi-maki madni,mahjoun,as far as the rest of the record it sounds like the record company pushed them to make a pop record that would sell, Derek even talked about it in the guitar player interview,maybe it will apeal to other folks that would have never heard of them, but i really doubt it,this problem is frequent with that kind of band when they're on a major label,they should be indepent without restrictions, their reputation is big enough to make a living out of it,to come back on the record itself i really can't stand that type of singer specially when he sings in falseto,i still love Derek's guitar and Kofi's flute though,that's my opinion wathever it's worth !

No songlines is a good album. I think Joyful Noise was a little better, but songline is more of a Broad appeal album. I wouldn't say Songlines is pop. Have you listened to pop lately? Songlines is very rich and laid back.

I'm not really into Mike's falsetto, either, truth be told. I much prefer when he just lets it rip in his natural range - a la I Wish I Knew or Blind, Crippled and Crazy. Those would be my two favorite vocal tracks, but the prize definitely goes to Sahib Teri Bandi>Maki Madni. That's the centerpiece of the disc, IMO.

Mahjoun is very cool too . . . I wish they'd really stretch that one out.

I can understand if this is not your favorite DTB release. It's all a matter of personal taste which is a good thing. But i'm convinced the DTB was not restricted by their record company neither do i think this qualifies as a pop album. I think Mike Mattison is great singer and suits this band perfectly but i must agree i do not like all his vocals on this album. Prolly some of that falseto doesn't do it for me either. But that is just a specific vocal style i may not appreciate in general. But most of the time i think his vocals are great. I really dig his contributions to "Live At The Georgia Theatre" and was very impressed when i saw the DTB live twice last year.

My favorite one is whatever song I'm currently listening to, except for maybe Revolution.
It's grown on me, but it'll never be a favorite.

This Sky, though, is the real answer....

I agree the whole CD is just amazing . Crow Jane & Sailing On are my favorites at this time . I never tire of listening to this in it's entirety . It's always in "the rotation" !
