Black Veil Brides Vale (Ranked)

This is turning out to be one of my favorite Black Veil Brides albums, I've been jamming it on repeat ever since I got my copy early last night. I'll be reviewing it in a couple weeks once I really let it soak in (as this review is most likely going to be massive), but this record is honestly really special to me, and frankly I needed it. As most of you know, I'm moving out of the state I've lived my entire life (California) to make a new start in Colorado, I'm leaving behind everyone I've ever known. This album is all about how life quelled the fire that raged, and is quite a bit softer than the rest of their discography but leaves far more of an emotional impact. It's a little early to say, but this might end up being one of my favorite albums of all time (it's already in the top ten, but it might end up being in the top five or top three). Either way, here's my song ranking. Ranking from most favorite to least favorite.
1Black Veil Brides

Vale (This Is Where It Ends): The perfect conclusion to a perfect album, the finger-picking and delicate string work combined with Andy's soft vocal styling is absolutely gorgeous.
2Black Veil Brides

Dead Man Walking (Overture 2): A nearly nine minute BVB track, there's even slight Be'Lakor influence present here, do I need to say more? Holy shit was this fantastic, atmospheric as fuck, and the two minute orchestral break and violin solo at the end of the track was just phenomenal.
3Black Veil Brides

When They Call My Name: One of the singles released, but still one of my favorite tracks from the album, the glimmering guitars and backing string work really made this track stand out.
4Black Veil Brides

The King of Pain: This track definitely has a more 80s vibe to it, one hell of a booming chorus. Infectiously catchy.
5Black Veil Brides

Wake Up: This song's gonna get huge, they're currently filming a music video for it and it's been all over the radio lately. It's not hard to see why, this track is tight as shit. Definitely the most sing-a-long-esque chorus on the album, and that's not a bad thing (solo rules too)
6Black Veil Brides

The Outsider: This was released a whole year before the album came out, and still has one hell of a nifty guitar groove and a superb guitar solo.
7Black Veil Brides

Ballad of the Lonely Hearts: Gorgeous solo work, dashes of keys here and there, and definitely one of more fleshed out solos on the album, this song was a great segment into the final moments of the album. Andy sounds wonderful here and shows off his improved vocal range here too.
8Black Veil Brides

Throw The First Stone: That groove though, yum.
9Black Veil Brides

Our Destiny: That chorus though, yum.
10Black Veil Brides

My Vow: Another one of the singles from the album, great work-out song and has one hell of a mean breakdown and a nifty solo.
11Black Veil Brides

The Last One: This track was definitely a grower, but it's got everything that makes BVB... well, BVB. The soaring chorus, the groovy as hell verse, the backing strings, and the stand-out solo.
12Black Veil Brides

Incipiens Ad Finem: Spoken word intro.
