Wow.. lower ratings for Fables than I might have expected..

I thought Fables was a bit boring. But maybe I just wasn't in the right mood when I listened to it.

Have to agree with 5/5 for Out of Time, an all-time favourite of mine.

But only 6/10 for The Lifting.. I'm surprised!

Yeah, The Lifting just seemed a bit....bland to me, I guess. It's not a bad song, but it could've been better.
