I’d love to hear why people dislike WTWCT and TAFE.
I LOVE WTWCT. And Peacekeeper is good, if someone would have shot that damned bird before they hit record. The bird is Cheese City.

I hate SYW as a whole, but like about 7-8 songs.

I like the song so I cant answer your question. But then again most people here hate SYW. Its the most intricate musical album from the Mac in a very very long time yet never gets appreciated. Its too long, its too cold, its not commercial. All the same descriptions of Tusk. I think they want Big Love all the time.
Say You Will is my least favorite FM album, but there are 5 or 6 songs I do like. Thrown Down, Peacekeeper, Say You Will, and What’s the World Coming To are my favorites. Like you, I think WTWCT is a great opener.

"That's All For Everyone" is one of my absolute favorite FM songs. What a brilliant sound collage. Had all (or at least more) of Tusk been like that, it would be my favorite FM album hands down AND I would better understand Lindsey acting like it is such a departure (I think he exaggerates the extent to which it is).

As for "What's The World Coming To," the music is alright but the lyrics aren't so hot – particularly the chorus "everyone's gone to the moon" (and, yes, I would say that to Bob Dylan).

My favorite song on Say You Will is "Steal Your Heart Away."

“Steal Your Heart” is such a good song! Charming, direct, and warm. I say the same thing about Kirwan’s “Sometimes.” Two moderate tempo strummers.

“That’s All” has impressive production. I almost never listen to it, but I don’t know why.

My SYW picks:

Illume
Throw Down
Red Rover
Miranda
Say Goodbye
Steal Your Heart Away
Everybody Finds Out
Destiny Rules

I prefer The Dance version of “Bleed”

Murrow is okay

The rest is dull.

Lindsey's songs on SYW are amazing and imho some of his best ever (interspersed with few sad dude such as dreaded WTWCT). because Lindsey's songs on SYW are so fantastic (although would have been way better and more cohesive as that solo album that never was), SYW is up there for me of the FM albums.

let's see:

1. "What's the World Coming To?" horrible
2. "Murrow Turning Over in His Grave" fantastic
3. "Illume (9-11)" droning bore
4. "Thrown Down" cheesy little pop
5. "Miranda" ok
6. "Red Rover" amazing
7. "Say You Will" cheesy little pop but love that guitar
8. "Peacekeeper" love it
9. "Come" fantastic
10. "Smile at You" ruined, angry original was fantastic
11. "Running Through the Garden" droning horribleness
12. "Silver Girl" not worth the name "song"
13. "Steal Your Heart Away" gorgeous
14. "Bleed to Love Her" gorgeous
15. "Everybody Finds Out" ok, could have been way better
16. "Destiny Rules" love the guitar parts, just amazing
17. "Say Goodbye" cheesy schmaltz
18. "Goodbye Baby" pretty

Deluxe edition bonus disc
1. "Love Minus Zero/No Limit" FANTASTIC cover
2. "Not Make Believe" horrible unlistenable droning

I find Say You Will to be very underrated. Lindsey brings in some of my all-time favorites with "Murrow" and "Red Rover", with "Bleed to Love Her", "Peacekeeper", "Come", and "Steal Your Heart Away" also ranking high. The one Buckingham song on the album I can't completely get behind is "Say Goodbye", but even that one is tolerable.

Glad you dig Red Rover. Shocked you don’t love Say Goodbye, which is, to my way of thinking, on of LB’s loveliest songs.
