Inspired by the Backspacer thread. We'll keep it open for about a week and tabulate the results for you fine folks.

Rate the songs as great, good, average, below average.

Great:
Black
Oceans
Porch
Release
Garden

Good:
Alive
Why Go
Once
Jeremy

Average:
Deep
Even Flow

I was going to put Jeremy lower, but I do remember loving that song once upon a time before I knew who PJ was.

I'm going to be interested to see what the consensus is on Oceans. Always been one of my favorites, but I can see the argument that it doesn't fit on the album.

I really don't think there's any song on here that isn't at least very good.

is there a general consensus on doing this as just by studio versions, or considering the song live as well?

just by studio. and this might be biased against some of the upper tier "good" songs, like once and black, because those great ones are so great

great:
oceans
porch
garden
release

good:
once
even flow
alive
black
jeremy
deep

avg:
why go

Probably more than any album ever, trying to rate the songs on Ten feels virtually impossible. I feel like I've heard these songs all way, way too many times to know what I genuinely feel about them anymore.

I'll say this, the only ones I'd look forward to hearing in concert would be "Oceans," "Garden," "Deep," and "Release."

I still think only giving three rankings makes this a bullshit exercise.

You could put it as bad/very bad if you wished
