1. Zoo Station - 8.8898988888989898989999991/10
2. Even Better Than The Real Thing - Better Live/10

I expect Axver to inconspicuously disappear shortly.

At least the guitar in EBTTRT is mixed better than the guitar in Zoo Station.

God, One, could you be any more cliche and living in WOWY's shadow?

i must confess, even though ebttrt is one of my favourite songs, i don't like it live. it sounds like it's missing something.
