Just listened to this for the first time. "All Ends Well" is actually one of my favorites from this album as of now. I can see where folks are coming from regarding the relatively middle-of-the-road (by this album's standards) songwriting, but the delivery, especially during the chorus, is warm and impassioned, and more than makes up for the somewhat cliched lyrics.

Oh, and hey Ties, what's up?

BTW, it's been 4 months since "Addicted to Pain" came out, and it didn't do too well on Billboard's mainstream rock chart compared to the lead singles from AB's last three albums (#13, compared to #2 by "Open Your Eyes," #3 by "Rise Today," and "Isolation" reigned at the top for 7 weeks). Is there a possibility that there might not be a second single from this album?

If this album does see a second single, I think "Cry of Achilles," "The Uninvited," "Peace Is Broken," "Calm the Fire," and "All Ends Well" could be candidates. I'd personally expect "All Ends Well" to be released as a single at some point, since each of AB's last three albums has had at least one ballad released as a single (ODR had "Broken Wings," Blackbird had "Watch Over You," and AB III had "Ghost of Days Gone By," "Wonderful Life," and maybe "Life Must Go On").

Basically:

"Is there a possibility that there might not be a second single from this album?"

"If this album does see a second single, I think 'Cry of Achilles,' 'The Uninvited,' 'Peace Is Broken,' 'Calm the Fire,' and 'All Ends Well' could be candidates. I'd personally expect 'All Ends Well' to be released as a single at some point [because of AB's history with releasing ballads as singles]."

tl;dr versions for ya

No, there's definitely going to be a second single, in fact, I predict at least four from this album. #13 isn't really a bad spot. I'd say 'Bleed it Dry', "Peace Is Broken', 'Calm the Fire', and 'Lover' are possibilities for singles, but I could be wrong.

I know #13 is a decent peak, but it is by far the lowest for a lead single from an AB album to date - "Open Your Eyes," "Rise Today," and "Isolation" were all top 3 hits. Then again, an album's most successful single isn't always its lead-off. "In the End" was the last single of four from Hybrid Theory, for example. Plus I just looked up AB III's article on Wikipedia and found that its two US singles were released roughly 7 months apart, so yeah, you're probably right about there being more singles forthcoming.

This album wore off very quickly. AB albums usually do when played often.

Great album but now I'm not so sure it's one of their top 2.

I have an unfortunate tendency to forget how awesome "Farther than the Sun" is.

Am I the only one that thinks this destroys their previous efforts? Including Blackbird.
