And then realize it's so shitty they don't even play it at the show in question!

 
Yeah, I know it was a year later. Sometimes it takes time for these epiphanies to occur.

I can't believe Imperor actually remembers a lyric.

I think I heard that song once, and all I remember is "flowering rose".

It will be interesting to see if any of those 360-debuted songs wind up on the album. From what I've heard, let's hope not.

Also, we should have a long-term betting pool on when the original version of Mercy actually gets an official release, either through the fan club, or part of some future outtake compilation or re-release set. I'm going with 2020 for the band's 40th anniversary.

Their 40th anniversary is in 2016.

I think I was far too hard on this album my first time through. There are at least three great songs here (Reflektor, We Exist, and It's Never Over), and the whole thing holds together pretty well considering the length. You Already Know and Joan of Arc really drag it down toward the middle, though.

Been spending a bit more time with this thing. And while Funeral is the better album, I can definitely say this one if my favourite... more suited to my tastes, even if there's some filler, namely We Exist, Flashbulb Eyes, You Already Know and Joan of Arc. The second disc is really strong.

"One of my favorites". Out of four albums.

The entire second disc + Reflektor, We Exist and Here Comes the Night Time = really good album

The other four songs should have been b-sides, at best. I actually find them more annoying/distracting now than I did on first listen.

Pretty sure I'd take Neon Bible at this point actually.

That was meant to read 'is', not 'if' or 'of'.

I can't believe people aren't digging Normal Person. I fucking love it. Second best track on the first half.

That might be my least favorite song by the band. The lyrics are total "it's cool to be yourself" fluff (subtlety really went out the window albums ago) and the song sounds paper thin with its faux-live sound. It might be better actually played live though.

I got a wild hair to listen to the album just now, and I agree with every word in this post.

Same here. I barely listen to the first disc at all after Reflektor. At least it allows me to ignore the tracklist mess in the vinyl vs CD.

The second disc is very good, though.
