I think its really difficult to write celebratory songs about love and growth as there is a tendency for them to sound corny or one dimensional. I remember reading an interview with Michael Stipe and him discussing how difficult it was to write Shiny Happy People.
I am quite liking The Conversation. However, I'm not a fan of Forever Thursday for than corny/cheesy thing you mention. I don't know why, but to me it just seems like a pretty light-weight love song. Loving the rest, though.
