Indeed. The Bends is one of the best albums of all time

i really can't separate no line on the horizon and the alternate version. i love them both. no line on the horizon is perfect on the album (and works just great stand-alone), and the alternate is a great stand-alone track.

yeah, i know what you mean. i couldn't imagine nloth2 opening the album or anything, but it is my preferred version of the two.

I agree too!

I like Vertigo but it was too produced. Native Son was not as produced and the lyrics are amazing!

So apparently you prefer your basslines to be either non-existent or completely buried in the mix.

Good to know.

Try taking the fucking blinders off.

Agreed on that, but I still think NLOTH2 would be an awesome closer. Cedars is just so... slow.. it doesn't reallyend, it just stops. Now put those two songs next to each other, Cedars goes out softly and NLOTH2 rises up. WHAM out with a bang! It has a great ending too. Had U2 put NLOTH2 as ending track NLOTH would possibly be my favourite U2 album ever.

Don't worry baby, it's gonna be all right. Uncertainty can be a guiding light...

"Cedars" is such a fitting closer and "No Line" isn't epic enough to work as an up-tempo closer either.

Something like "A Sort of Homecoming" could act as both an opening and closing track, due to a combination of subject matter and sound; I don't think "No Line" in either incarnation would work or do the album justice.

i do agree that cedars is a great closer. the ending's kind of abrupt, but i like it.

and i agree on asoh too. the lyrics, particularly the very end, work as basically beginning the journey or arriving at your destination.

It reminds of "Please," only without the emotional release. Sometimes restraint can be more effective and "Cedars" is a great example of that.

Well put.

Perhaps I think the bass line of NLOTH2 is garbage and better left unheard?

Try not being an closeminded prick, ass.

(This is what I call a rational, mature discussion )
