YMMV: Calling All Dawns
  • Breakaway Pop Hit: Baba Yetu is the most well known song on the album, though it's not necessarily a bad thing.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: EVERY SONG IN THE ALBUM.
    • Besides Baba Yetu, there are standouts such as Mado Kara Mieru, Kia Hora Te Marino and Rassemblons-Nous, and some more under-appreciated ones like Se É Pra Vir Que Venha, Hayom Kadosh, and Hamsáfár.
  • Genius Bonus: The album culls from a variety of sources for its lyrics, from poems, Haikus to even The Lord's Prayer. Knowing where these came from can enhance the enjoyment of the album a bit.
  • Possible Fridge Brilliance: In Mado Kara Mieru, the titular window is not literal. What are windows of the soul? Exactly.
    • The languages used in the album work in a historical context as well, such as Rassemblons-Nous, which is quite clearly inspired by a certain rebellion in France.
    • That drumline in the background of Se É Pra Vir Que Venha? It's a style of percussion-based samba sometimes used at funerals. The song itself is about accepting death peacefully. Basically, it's an upbeat funeral march.
      • With the melacholic melody of fado. It's the musical high point of Portugal and Brazil.
  • Heartwarming In Hindsight: Hamsáfár becomes even better when you take into account the fact that it fits Journey almost perfectly. Even more so once you realize that song preceding this, a Jewish prayer in Hebrew seamlessly transitions to this.
