    My bottom 3 (leaving out the bonus track - though I'm afraid that would be in this group, if we were including it):
    ---Mexico
    ---Clock Don't Stop
    ---Relapse

    My Top 3 (this is much harder as I have at least a top 5 - 6)
    ---Like I'll Never You Again
    ---Smoke Break
    ---Choctaw County Affair

    (the first two are such a departure for Carrie - and definitely, in my view, a big step forward, stylistically, that including them was easy. CCA, though, was a struggle because it had to fight with two thematically similar songs, but I went for it because it was the most radical, and unusual of the three)

    Although we were asked for 3, I'd like to add a special mention for "Chaser" - the biggest "grower" for me. I think this song (a Carrie co-write) has at least two aspects that make it an album standout:
    a) it encapsulates one of Carrie's defining qualities - her ability to draw on a variety of influences, while still rooting a song in a core genre loyalty (I would disagree with people who describe it as Pop - for me, it's a song that comes closest to explaining what Carrie understands by "contemporary Country", in the sense that it combines innovation with a vocal and melody structure that are more authentic than much that is played on the radio format today)
    b) both her vocal and her writing show what I would regard as a growing maturity and confidence. She achieves a subtlety in her singing, without relying on pure power vocals - and the structure of the song is nicely balanced between the verse development and the choruses, with the latter not becoming over dominant, with some good variations in musical style.

    (Sorry to go on at length on that - but I wanted to make the point that not naming it in the top three is a sign of the richness of choice that there is among the top songs on Storyteller!)

    I love chaser it is actually my fifth favorite song on the album. I really wish that she would have made it a single instead of heartbeat. I wish she would have performed this on the UK xfactor instead.

    (1) Dirty Laundry
    (2) The Girl You Think I Am
    (3) Chaser

    Bottom 3
    Relapse
    Clock Don't Stop (In my opinion this would have been a great song if it focused on one aspect of forgiving another person. I love the first part of it).
    and if we aren't counting the bonus track What I Never Knew I Always wanted.

    Totally agree about Chaser being the biggest grower. At first, I really couldn't get into it, but now it's one of my favorite songs on the album. I would love for it to be released as a single. I think it would be a hit.

    I actually like the song It's just the fact there's not really a song I don't like on the album, so I just went by which songs I would least like to be singles & which I think should be singles lol.

    I like RR and HB, but I really like tracks 2,3, and 5 and 8, so I sometimes skip them to get to my favorites :-)

    They are just what I listen to the least.

    Top 3:
    Relapse
    Chaser
    Dirty Laundry

    Bottom 3:
    Mexico
