    Both awesome, but I love the rhythm of CGTSNM. Especially, during the verses. Just love that groove.

    I love em both too. My all time favorite studio drum sound for Al, and Ed's tones sounded terrific on both tunes, and the production is the greatest ever for the band IMO. I love that shuffle groove on CGTSNM, especially during the verses like you said. Really like how Alex rides the cowbell during the 2nd verse, then returns to it for the outro. That snare just sounds incredible, especially during the outro. You feel like you're sitting right next to Alex in the studio. Even his kick drums are up in the mix where they should be. I also like Ed's solo better in CGTSNM.

    That said, I gotta go with Me Wise Magic. Alex's drumming is awesome. The rolls, the groove of the beat, the double kick during the outro, that syncopation that he and Ed dive into right after the solo before they jump back into the chorus. And the chorus is CLASSIC with the amazing "do you believe" harmonies. And I'd say the outro is the greatest example of Ed using the sustainer so effectively.

    I've always felt the aggressive nature of the music on MWM, and the groove, sounds like music that fits right in with FW.

    I love both, but I must give a tip of the hat to Me Wise Magic. Agreed about the production quality, too. Wasn't that Glen Ballard's doing?
    Give me ambiguity or give me something else!

    Yep. Ballard producing, presumably before Ed became a control freak, and Erwin Musper engineering. I still have no idea why those two didnt work on VHIII.

    I think CGTSNM is a much more moody, interesting tune.
    Plus that crazy wide stretch chordal intro!

    CGTSNM by a mile.

    The vocals are strained on MWM, which I find sorta annoying.

    Example;
    "Whoa...Reachin' to the feet of God! Lookin' for a sign!"

    Sounds really forced. Not too crazy about those and other strained parts in MWM.

    CGTSNM is on spot and groovin' from start to finish though. I like both songs, but CGTSNM the easy winner, in my opinion.

    Huh. I like Dave's vocals on both. After the screeching Sam did on the majority of Balance, I guess I was conditioned for the higher parts on MWM.
