False Echoes was the perfect ending for the album.
As for the hidden track, Treetop Flyer, he could have left it

Banana Wind.......played it while my 3 sons walked me down the 'dirt' by the lakes edge to get married...... then we proceeded underwater for the actual ceramony :D
Then upon exiting the water finished the ceramony by planting a palm tree.

This was a hard vote, because Banana Wind is one of my favorite JB albums, but I went with False Echoes. James Taylor's harmony in the chorus of this song makes it extremely haunting. The song is a wonderful tribute to Jimmy's dad, and it is a tear jerker.

Only time will tell. Connected with this song more.

I always hated School Boy Heart - it just sounds gay to me.

"Only Time Will Tell" got my vote.

I've never been able to really enjoy this album, the songs have just never appealed that strongly to me. A few good tracks, but I've always felt this is one of his more uneven albums.

This is overall probably my favorite album of his, so it is hard to choose! However, i have to choose the title track. It is my ring tone (i highly suggest other parrotheads to use it!)

tie between school boy heart and only time will tell. but had to go with only time just because i tend to put that one on first when i play this cd both are great. and they both get played every time i listen to this cd. Only time ... makes me think deeper i guess, so i like to reason with his words as to what may come in my future.

I voted for "School Boy Heart", but "Bob Roberts Society Band" and "False Echoes" are both really good. Overall, though, it's a great CD. One of his better works I think.
