    I'm going to have to go with "The Beautiful Ones," but I think Aurgasm got it right.

    Bat For Lashes - Glass from Two Suns. Some people may think Daniel is the best song since it was such a huge single but Glass is better, imo. Her range on that track is ridiculous.

    I completely agree with Dale regarding Eye Contact.

    Absolutely. That song is breathtaking, especially live.

    But "Thru and Thru" is the best on Eye Contact.
