This is ranked by how I truly personally receive the songs rather than a critical analysis. So if I think Blackout is technically a better song than Summer of Love, but I'm more excited when SoL comes up next, I rate SoL higher.

All time great songs!!!!
1 - Little Things
2 - Red Flag Day

Really great songs
3 - Love is Bigger
4 - Lights of Home
5 - Landlady
6 - Summer of Love
7 - Blackout

Almost great but flawed
8 - Get Out
9 - American Soul

10 - Love is All
11 - You're the Best Thing
12 - Showman

Still working on it
13 - 13

Plenty of good songs on this one:

LIBTAIIW - my favorite off of the last few albums
Kygo Mix of Best Thing -  this one is great; the other mix(es) not so much
GOOYOW - itís a shame this one didnít get AirPlay.   It is worthy..
LIAWHL - They got out of the way on this one.   Good stuff.
Red Flag Day - takes me back to the awesomeness of Two Hearts
13 - I donít care for SFS but really like this one
Blackout - Edge has had some exceptional performances in his career and the dinosaur sounds he creates at the beginning of this is one of them.  Almost as good as the weeping effects he created in EBTTRT.    Perhaps a little too derivative of Invisible overall but still not bad.
Lights of Home -  I am liking this less as time goes on.   Was previously higher in the list.
American Soul -  this one had significant potential but their single-sickness deconstructed it.  Exceptional vocal performance in the verses.
Summer of Love - this one is worthy due to its context
Book of Your Heart - still growing on me
TLTTGYA -  this one is okay but I always skip it.
Lillywhite mix of Best Thing - I skip it
Landlady - throwaway
Showman - throwaway
