It's a tough choice between Iris and RBW for me.

Cedarwood Road... but only if they're keeping that interactive screen for the tour!

From the choices available, Raised by Wolves.  I'd really like to hear their live take on This is Where You Can Reach Me Now (which should have been the first track on the album and first single IMO).

Every Breaking Wave. Was such an incredible song live. SLABT would be nice, too.

(Volcano and Troubles were played as well)

None of the above. I would prefer SLABT, TIWYCRMN and/or California.

i'm assuming they'll play many songs from SOE.  The albums (were meant to) compliment each other , they could be quite creative integrating them toether into a single show.

Why just one? Why shouldn't they play multiple? There are multiple songs that are better than the album's overall theme!

I’d say Iris from those listed, but I wish they’d embrace This Is Where You Can Reach Me Now. I think it could end up being like an Ultraviolet in several years, a song that didn’t make a big impression when the album came out but later became a highlight and even staple of their show.

California! I'm still surprised they didn't play this more. But of the ones listed, I would say EBW, but a full-band version, not the piano one they did.

If they really only do one, EBW is the obvious choice they'd pick. My preference would be raised by wolves. I'm guessing they'll probably do the three singles and 1 more. I see the miracle as the post-intermission opener, when the setlist goes from experience to innocence

Voted for Cedarwood Road, but The Troubles would be better.
