Every song is totally different from the one before. Has any PSB album been as musically diverse as this? It's absolutely fabulous!
The sound could be the best ever. Fantastic arrangements. What an album!
As I said before, "Elysium" is a very diverse album which is someting I really apreciate because I think PSB tend to take the concept of how an album should sound like, too seriously. You know, sometimes they follow the same kind of sound again and again and song after song (ex: Release) on one particular album, if you don't like this kind of sound you'll dislike the whole album.

But with "Elysium" it doesn't happen. It has a concept of more or less slow songs and a smart production with a "space" and atmospheric sound but it doesn't mean it's not going to be a diverse album.

I find good things with every track, even with Winner. (Especially now that I know that the rest of the album and the B-sides lack Winner's "count-the-cliches" syndrome.) But for now these 5 are giving me the most pleasure:

In order of their appearance in the tracklisting -

Invisible
Breathing Space
Ego Music
Give It a Go
Everything Means Something

Memory of the future
Everything means something
Winner

Ashamed to say I finally got the double CD this week and haven't listened to it yet so can't pick five. Will stick it on Nanny (my iPod) and give it a go on a train journey tomorrow.
