All That You Can't Dismantle of An Innocent Horizon

After the great thread on NLOTH, I started going back and revisiting U2's work, 2000 and on... And well... Damn if i wasn't shocked at how much i just don't enjoy that much. But, there is some outstanding work there. So i picked 13 songs, to make a nice complete album of 2000-2015 songs i would enjoy consistently listening to. It also showed me how strong SOI is, which is really cool.

I did the tracklisting pretty quickly. So tell me what you think, and also if you have any suggestions on a better flowing tracking. Or better yet, make a whole new list of your own...

1. Fez (Being Born)
2. When I Look At the World
3. Every Breaking Wave
4. Original of The Species
5. The Crystal Ballroom
6. Vertigo
7. No Line On The Horizon
8. Raised By Wolves
9. Magnificent
10. Kite
11. Sleep Like a Baby Tonight
12. Moment of Surrender
13. The Troubles

thoughts?

Finally someone who appreciates New York!

Though what did you mean by "Reach Around"? I don't recall a song with that name or anything close to it.

As for this thread in general, I like too many 2000- songs to make such a short "listenable" track order, unless I'm misunderstanding the point. I don't find any of the albums to be bad, or only worthy of pulling a few selections from.

I was thinking that might be the case, but I'm confused how the word "around" got in there. I would probably just abbreviate it as "Reach Me Now" since TIWYCRMN might look a bit ridiculous.

And it seems another use wrote "Reach Around". I feel very out of the loop!

Thank you all!! I completely blanked on Electrical Storm and Ground Beneath Her Feet. The latter one being one of my favorites.

I think I would swap out OOTS for it. So now mine is:

1. Fez (Being Born)
2. When I Look At the World
3. Every Breaking Wave
4. The Ground Beneath Her Feet
5. The Crystal Ballroom
6. Vertigo
7. No Line On The Horizon
8. Mercy
9. Raised By Wolves
10. Magnificent
11. Kite
12. Sleep Like a Baby Tonight
13. Moment of Surrender
14. The Troubles

I don't find any of the albums "bad" either. But I have grown a bit tired of songs like BD and Walk On, Stuck, and others that I do really like, like Cedars, or One Step Closer... I enjoy listening to at times, but not consistently.

I just wanted to kind of pare down to the ones i would never skip. I could probably add 2 or 3 more SOI songs on there, cause i only really skip SFS on that album, but trying not to overload it with one album...

..... As should be WHITE AS SNOW simply to demonstrate the depth of Bono's voice post-2000.

I have problem with your 1 & 7. Otherwise it is perfect on my book. And..... Every Breaking Wave you mentioned.... album version or acoustic version ? If album version then no problems. If not then I would put Iris or CFYT in place of it.

Original "demo" version for me. I removed the album version from my playlist, it's the worst thing on there and I can't listen to it.
