    LPA COLLECTIVE TIER LIST

    Hello everyone. Thank you for participating in this thread so far :)
    I am taking @Mark 's idea and using a mathematical equation to generate an "LPA tier list."
    So here are the results as of @AThousandLivingTheories 's post and I will keep editing the results as more votes come in.

    ALBUM OPENERS:
    1. The Requiem/The Radiance/Burning In the Skies- 238 points.
    2. Papercut- 222 points. [Up 1 spot]

    3. Lost In the Echo- 216 points. [Down 1 spot]
    4. Nobody Can Save Me- 168 points.
    5. Wake/Given Up- 163 points.
    6. Keys to the Kingdom- 142 points.
    7. Foreword/Don't Stay- 91 points.

    ALBUM CLOSERS:
    1. The Little Things Give You Away- 233 points.
    2. A Line In the Sane- 194 points.
    3. Powerless- 174 points.
    4. Sharp Edges- 160 points.
    5. Pushing Me Away- 143 points.
    6. The Messenger- 137 points. [Up One Spot]
    7. Numb- 128 points. [Down One Spot]

    MOST COMMON PLACING BY SONG:

    Papercut- 1st Place
    Foreword/Don't Stay- 7th Place
    Wale/Given Up- 6th Place

    The Requiem/The Radiance/Burning In the Skies- 1st Place
    Lost In the Echo- 3rd Place
    Keys to the Kingdom- 4th Place
    Nobody Can Save Me- 3rd Place

    Pushing Me Away- 6th Place
    Numb- 6th Place
    The Little Things Give You Away- 1st Place
    The Messenger- 7th Place
    Powerless- 3rd and 4th Place tied
    A Line In the Sand- 1st Place
    Sharp Edges- 4th Place

    RANDOM FACTS:
    • Don't Stay is the only song without a first place vote
    • Every song has been placed at least once in each possible placing except Don't Stay which has not received a 1st or 3rd place vote.
    • The Messenger has moved up to 6th place moving Numb down to 7th place.
    • Papercut has moved up to 2nd place moving Lost In the Echo down to 3rd place.
    • Burning In the Skies is the first song to receive over 15 votes for first place!

    Openers:

    1 The Requiem / The Radiance / Burning In The Skies
    2 Foreword / Don't Stay
    3 Lost In The Echo
    4 Papercut
    5 Wake / Given Up
    6 Keys To The Kingdom
    7 Nobody Can Save Me

    Closers:

    1 A Line In The Sand (My absolute favorite LP song of all time, gets me going every time)
    2 The Little Things Give You Away
    3 Pushing Me Away
    4 Sharp Edges
    5 Tinfoil / Powerless
    6 Numb
    7 The Messenger

    Closers were way harder for me to rate as I love each of them quite a bit, except for the Messenger which I just sorta like. Found a new respect for Tinfoil/Powerless but I still couldn't put it past the other 4. Sharp Edges is my fav from the new album.

    If Reanimation songs counted they'd be right up there as that album has phenomenal openers and closers.

    Lost In The Echo
    2. Keys To The Kingdom
    3. The Requiem/The Radiance/Burning In The Skies
    4. Papercut
    5. Wake/Given Up
    6. Nobody Can Save Me (this song is really growing on me, could eventually go higher up the list)
    7. Foreword/Don't Stay

    Closings:
    1. Powerless
    2. A Line In The Sand
    3. The Little Things Give You Away
    4. Sharp Edges
    5. Numb
    6. Pushing Me Away
    7. The Messenger

    This was interesting as I found the opening tracks a lot easier to rank/rate; #1 and #2 are 10/10 tracks for me with #3-#5 being 9/10 and Nobody Can Save Me is still a solid 8/10 but could easily go higher as it's really growing on me the more I listen to One More Light. I used to love Don't Stay when I was 15 years old but I've not had much intent on listening to that song now 14 years later. I can still listen to it from time to time but I don't know, I've just outgrown it I guess.

    The closing tracks were harder to rank as I absolutely love Powerless, A Line In The Sand, The Little Things Give You Away and Sharp Edges, which are all scored at 10/10 for me. Sharp Edges could go up to #3 eventually as I'm really digging the folk-inspired track but for now, I'm content with my placement. Numb and Pushing Me Away are scored at an 8-9 with The Messenger being a 7/10.

    2 TLTGYA
    3 Sharp Edges
    4 Messenger
    5 Powerless
    6 Numb
    7 Pushing Me Away

    I actually think TLTGYA is the best song out of those 7, but ALITS is the best closer
