I was going back on forth a lot with the Tightrope v. Sprawl II matchup, but I settled it because while I prefer the songwriting on Sprawl II probably by a bit, the arrangements on Tightrope are among the most exciting of any song of the decade. Now, had the original arrangement of Sprawl II been more like this cover - my favorite version of the song - it'd have gone the other way:
