Red Giant vs. Lapse was really tough.  I think both songs are criminally underrated; both are top 5 songs from that album, IMO (along with 1985, The Architect and Bound by Gravity).

Edit: Shoot, I forgot about Earthrise.  :facepalm:  Well, those six songs are all great.  The other two songs aren't nearly as good as any of those.

Aquarium should be kicking the crap out of Initiate.

I don't either.  Of the other 35 songs from this contest, there are only a few I would rank lower (Eternal Rain, Darkest Light, Earthlings and maybe Nocturnal Conspiracy).  Heck, even Cockroach King is better.

The Endless Knot
Earthrise
Nocturnal Conspiracy
Initiate

Red Giant vs. Lapse was really tough. 

It is actually; couldn't decide between those two, and neither between Pareidolia and Celestial Elixir.. They're far from being my favorites btw..

When I first started listening to Haken, Pareidolia was the song I liked the most.  Now, while I still like it, it wouldn't be among my 10 favorites by the band.

Celestial Elixir, meanwhile, is still their best song to date (certain days I think Vision is, but most days I go with CE).

-Best songs :hefdaddy: Initiate and The Endless Knot..

If by that, you actually mean, "The two least best songs from Affinity are easily Initiate and The Endless Knot," then I agree.  :biggrin:
