Ok, From 14 to 1:

14) Machinae Prime
13) Throttle and Mask
12) Deus Ex Machinae
11) Return To Snake Mountain
10) Tempus Fugit
09) Insidious
08) Blind Dog Pride
07) Killer Instinct
06) Super Steve
05) Dreadnaught
04) Player One
03) Attack Music
02) Ninja
01) Flagcarrier

Machinae Prime is 14th because I felt it could've been better. I was blown away by Flagcarrier and Ninja. It's odd 'cos they're the slowest songs.

14) Attack Music
13) Tempus Fugit
12) Super Steve
11) Machinae Prime
10) Return to Snake Mountain
9) Player One
9) Throttle and Mask
7) Flagcarrier
6) Blind Dog Pride
5) Insidious
4) Ninja
3) Killer Instinct
2) Dreadnaught
1) Deus Ex Machinae

Thats my order, from what I can tell very different than others orders.

Just to explain a bit, I think the new Attack Music isn't as good as the old one. I think the quick active drumline is overpowering and drowning out the music and is too quick for the speed of the song, possibly just because the volume on it seems boosted.

Tempus really didn't spark anything.. It may still, the best thing about MaSu is the songs can often offer new meaning and greatness over time.

Super Steve, aside from being named after me :D I never really did like. It just doesn't seem like a MaSu song to me. I think lyrically its great, but songwise its not as good as most.

I won't bore with the details of each song so i'll skip to the last 3.

Killer Instinct is great lyrically and musically, so much so its mine and my gf's 'song' :) The lyrics, about lust and blood as well as the other themes are just beautifully articulated and oriented to the music.

Dreadnaught I love for the bass, and the lines "Turn the world into an enemy, and believe in me." and the chorus is just godly. Also I love the intro, and the bassline is very good as always Kahl!

Deus Ex Machinae... now there is very little to say about this that you shouldn't be able to hear in the song. Lyrically, its just a work of art. The first verse, to refresh your memories:
Come summon all your deities
they stand on trial
before a tribunal of humankind
We are but children to the earth
No matter what they say
we owe it all to her

Well, its just the entirity of who I am and what I believe summed up into a 15 second verse in a song. This song has not only sparked so much in my mind, its enhanced and solidified all my beliefs... It has a very deep meaning for me, so I guess I can't expect people to like it because of why I do, but aside from the fact, its a work of art and should be appreciated like one.

Grave Zero, coming atcha.

7) Blind Dog Pride

2) Flagcarrier
1) Return to Snake Mountain

To me the top 5 are the stand out tracks, particularly Return to Snake Mountain, it just blows me away every time.
Its damned hard to arrange everything after the top 5 though, I love all the songs, but the bottom few are the ones i skip to the least

You can't stand Ninja? Wow thats the first i've heard against the song, not that I challenge your opinion or anything but i'm just curious as to why you don't like it?

It's amazing, cause I opened up this thread and happened to be listening to Ninja...

Hah, I love the song, but eh, not everyone has the same musical taste as me

dunno it's beginning to grow on me though but it's the song i like least on the album...the start before the asian music cuts in is pretty good then for me it goes downhill from there...i guess also maybe the little bleepy nosies from the keyboard?

or maybe because it is slow?

listen to it somemore, I didn't like it because it was slow, but I like how it picks up at the "Or I could just kill you in your sleep, just another pointless life sold cheap" part. I really like it now. not as much as Deus Ex or Dreadnaught though which I am listening to now.

Return to Snake Mountain
Dreadnaught
Flagcarrier
Blind Dog Pride
Machinae Prime
 and the rest are restish


I was sad about ninja at first too, i was expecting some sort of super mad ninja guitar solos or something.  But it grew on me, i like it when it gets around the end, the 2nd verse of "caught in the wind are the voices of the damned"

I love the chorus to Ninja, the "Or maybe i'll just kill you in your sleep, just another pointless life sold cheap" so good.
