I also have a very personal connection to The Rising, so I'm going to defend it probably with a little bit of irrationality. Nonetheless, I love pretty much every song aside from Mary's Place.

Yeah, I'd add Lonesome Day and the title track to the list of songs waiting outside to kick NSW's butt.

I didn't mention Lonesome Day or the title track, as it turns out. And they rock the fuck out.

Seeing Mary's Place live was enough to make me like that one, it was just that good.

Yuh-huh.

Yup.

Mm-hmm.

(Maybe Let's Be Friends, too.)

I didn't see it live until the Magic Tour, which meant I saw the ridiculous 11-minute version. Not my favorite.

I LIKE The Rising. I like it a lot. It just does not strike me as a "classic" especially when you look at the body of Bruce's work.

Alright, two songs I don't love, you got me there. 13 out of 15 is a higher percentage than most albums I've ever heard.

I think it was a one time only performance that made me love it, and had I seen it any other time, it probably would have been as ridiculous as ever. That whole show was on fire though, so, there ya go.

ATYCLB is, believe it or not, my least favorite U2 album, so, Elevation is not high on my list. My favorite song from the album is, with ease, When I Look at the World.
Well, I love Nebraska, even though it took me some time to realize this. I mean, musical complexity-wise there's nothing special about it. But when he put those simple melodies along those lyrics, he just created one of the most moody-musical pieces of music I've ever heard. And it's beautiful. My Father's House is one of the most moving songs ever to me. Not to mention how cinematographical the whole thing is. I can see every song as a short film. Works perfectly.
Well, ATYCLB is my 7th favourite album. It just flows really well to me. When I Look is my second favourite from the album. A shame it wasn't used properly live. And well, it's not like I expect anyone to agree with me on Elevation one day.

Like I mentioned earlier, when I am in a certain mood, Nebraska just kicks my ass. Other times, it's just not as powerful.

I saw some people on this site get excited cos U2 are rehearsing Elevation, so you are not alone!

I actually don't love any Bruce albums after Born to Run. Darkness is great and all, but it doesn't really hit me like the prior three. And I like Nebraska and The River, but don't find myself returning to them often. The rest... ehh.

For a long time it was a love/hate thing with Nebraska. But one day love prevailed.
Yeah, maybe... I hope they stop rehearsing only and play the damn thing soon.

I honestly did not know that you liked Bruce in the first place. Not sure how I missed this.

My three favorite U2 songs are Bad, Please, and Until the End of the World, so I can relate to your "not playing it live" pains.
