No doubt in my mind at all.
The first Daniel Amos record is my least favorite.

I love them all, each in it's own way, but the one I listen to the least is......


Songs of the Heart

Haven't heard the "Hats" version. I'd like to.

And, hey, the first DA album is great. It was still available when I first found the boys and it holds a special place for me.

It's hard to say that SoTH is my "least" favorite, it's just the one I listen to the least.

I listen to MotorCycle the most.

Hard to say... Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

This is a loaded question for those of us (like me) who will buy and love most everything, including the fart songs. Everything I have bought has eventually warmed on me to some degree.

However, for an original recording maybe the first. That said, I bought (and highly recommend) the 30th anniversary release.

Behind that, maybe Bibleland. Still, much of it I have really learned to like. I just don't like the rough dissonance of certain tunes like Pete and Repeat, and Bubble Bursts. Same thing goes for DFBB. I have grown to love most of it, but some of the choppy dissonance (e.g. in the title track) bothers me.

Overall, the compilation 'personal world famous hits' I play the least, because it tries to do for DA what I think is not doable. You can't span a period that long with so many varied musical DA genres and not come off feeling very uneven. The always cool Tennapel artwork is the only redeeming quality to me for that recording.

I'm gonna say Live at Cornerstone 2000. Not that there is anything wrong with it, but it is a bit raw of a recording and Terry forgot the lyrics seems like 3 or 4 times during the concert (which is because he was doing 3--maybe 4--sets for Cornerstone that year). So Live at Cornerstone 2000 is not bad, but in DA terms, that equates to "least favorite".

Then again, I've yet to hear the self-titled debut or Revelation.

I dont think I have a least favorite, I like them all just dependant upon my mood. I like the first album sometimes, Revelation is a classic since its the 'scripture story' naration between the songs that were a rock opera of the end times anyway. That second side of Shotgun Angel was huge in it's day. Bibleland I like, when I am in a certain mood. I think every album gets a pretty fair share of playing in my car.

Revelation has a special place for me because it includes "Soon," one of my favorite songs, which is based on one of my favorite Biblical passages.

I suppose my least favorite album is Darn Floor, Big Bite, though of course, "least favorite" is a particularly apt term in this case.

The debut album -- no contest.

I can't place Mr. Buechner's Dream because I heard it only once, but I didn't consider it worth keeping. I might like it better if I heard it again. I've never heard the Live @ Cornerstone album or "Hats."

I don't count Revelation (which I heard once) or World Famous Hits (which I haven't heard per se but which John Foxe seems to have hit the nail on the head about).

Otherwise, getting back to "regular" albums, things not high on my list are Fearful Symmetry (except for "Shadow Catcher") and Songs Of The Heart.

BTW, I should add that some things previously mentioned as among the "least" favorites are among my favorites: Kalhoun, DF-BB (I fully understand why Terry called this his favorite), Bibleland (but, BOY, did that one take me some getting used to!).
