I don't like the lyrics "Every Night Every Night Every Night"
I like the music for this song but I'm not as fond of the lyrics. ("The River")

Songs in bold are the bonus tracks on the deluxe edition.
3: "It's Time"; "Demons";
2: "Radioactive"; "Tiptoe"; "On Top of the World"; "Underdog";
1: "Hear Me"; "Bleeding Out"; "Nothing Left to Say / Rocks"; "Selene";
0: "Amsterdam"; "My Fault"; "Round and Round"; "The River"; "America";
-1: "Every Night";

Overall, the standard release has many tracks which I know and like. I'm less excited about the bonus tracks on the deluxe edition, but I'm also less familiar with them. In any case, I was surprised by how many songs I recognized from the album.

I'm not sure which one I like more, "It's Time" or "Demons." In fact, when I was first listening to the album, I had a hard time rating the first five tracks. I'll just say it's a tie.

Overall Rating (Standard): 4.4/5
Overall Rating (Deluxe): 4.0/5
Favorite Songs: "It's Time" and "Demons"

20200201 Comment:
I was curious about my history for this album. Here are some stats.

From 2012 to 2019, I have 3, 30 (2), 64 (2), 17, 1, 5, 2, and 3 (1) scrobbles for the standard release (scrobbles for bonus tracks in parentheses). Note that the peak occurs in 2014, because I listened to their songs while preparing for Firefly 2014. I would saw them perform on 20140621.

The top scrobbles are equally divided among the songs as "It's Time" with 24+1 scrobbles, "Demons" with 23+4 scrobbles, and "Radioactive" with 22+1 scrobbles. These three are followed by "On Top of the World" with 15+2 scrobbles, "Hear Me" with 11+1 scrobbles, and "Bleeding Out" with 10+0 scrobbles.
