Love how it starts off slow, and then kicks off huge! Especially love Cogsy's drums at the start. Saw them open a gig with this song once, fantastic opener.
Great song! My band (which is VERY casual) has a crack at this from time to time as it's fun to play. The guitaring at the very start is unusual and tricky at first even though it sounds so simple.

I absolutely love the progressive/ballady instrumental in the middle of this song, then the vocals come in softly and then finishes loud again. Right up my ally, and hence why it sits at number 3 on my list. It's also an oddly-long song for Powderfinger, at 6 minutes, which is a nice change from their usual short and sharp songs.

Thank god you love Thrilliology too as it's probably my favourite. Wasn't sure if it would be in your top 3 or miss the cut. They loved playing this song live too, was always epic.

It was initially my number one, but I changed my mind. Such a brilliant song though, and one of my favourites to see live as well.

List loses credibility with no "The day you come". It's a ******* amazing song.

I know people who argue that Odyssey Number 5 is the best Australian album of the last 25 years. For me though, it's not even better than Internationalist. I still listen to it on the train at least once every 2-3 weeks.

Both great albums, Odyssey is just a little more accessible for the mainstream though, which is why it had more success.

Internationalist was more of a cohesive album for mine. But Odyssey had even better stand out tracks (the metre, thriollogy, these days etc).

Champion team vs Team of Champions kind of thing. I slightly prefer Odyssey of the two.
