Cool, I liked it. That UC version (faster and more raw) sounds good too. And Magnificent sounds good too with that percussion that ressembles a lot from the 1980's pop tracks...

I can't complain, I'm happy with album versions of magnificent and UC, but there's one thing I can't forgive them. How on earth this MASSIVE riff wasn't included on the album, you must check it out, if you haven't heard it yet:

YouTube - U2 - No Line On The Horizon - Fez - U2MIRACLE.COM

It's the most badass thing they did since Mofo. Yeah, NLOTH the title track, GOYB and Breath guitar solo are pretty badass, but not on THIS kind of level. The clip was out way before the album release and back then I was pretty sure it's Stand Up Comedy (you know, that "the nearest we got to Led Zep" talk), but unfortunately it isn't. Hope this riff lands on SoA, but if we're supposed to be getting zooropa kind-of chillout album, then I unfortunately doubt it.

It sounds way too much like LAPOE, which is already a weak-enough song.

Cool video...Magnificent sounds interesting, but really sloppy...I prefer the album version.

I love Unknown Caller in it's final form--even the tech chants. But hearing that line "restart and forgive yourself..." wow, what an impact. I'm not much of a fan of alternate versions, but I'd love to hear the song with more personal lyrics like in the video.

Before the album was released/leaked this was one of the songs I was most looking forward to hear... I realy hope that it will be on the next album. I wounder if this song has been mentioned in any interview?

Way too much in what way? That both things rock hard? If so, so does Bullet, The Fly, Mofo, NLOTH etc. Both have different chord progression, different sound. Besides, for me LAPOE, along with OOTS and Fast Cars, is one of the highlights on Bomb, especially live.

BTW here's a third video illustrating studio jamming, if someone interested in:

YouTube - U2 - Making of "No Line on the Horizon" (II)

Does anyone know if there's more of these videos? I'm not counting these u2.com ones, where you can't see or hear a f*ck.

I like these alternate forms, I wish they would release them as Bsides.

Very inspired stuff. I'd have loved to have heard these versions in their finished state. They should have kept the Moroccan musicians and ran with it.

They should've made Magnificent2 as they did with NLOTH1/2

Great stuff, very exciting to see. I wish they would do a proper making of the album documentary one day with stuff like that.

All those mystery riff lovers:

Put it this way. If LAPOE's riff was similarly muddied and included only in a behind the scenes video, then it would probably stir up more interest than this one has. A "massive" riff does not a good U2 song make (by itself). Anyway, if we all listened to all the recording tapes, we'd each likely find 100 pieces that we wish were included in some way, shape, or form.
