1. A Sort Of Homecoming - New Age bullshit about snow. We knew you were on the stuff, Bono, but you didn't have to write about it/10
2. Pride - Stop trying to be Arcade Fire, you pack of fucks/10
3. Wire - "I'm no dope, I give you hope?" Ugh/10
4. The Unforgettable Fire - This came out in 1984? Why I am I not surprised?/10
5. Promenade - Twinkly/10
6. 4th Of July - ....Where's the song part?/10
7. Bad - /10
8. Indian Summer Sky - No need to be clever here; this song sucks/10

EPAA for the win, though it does meander a bit here at the start.

Never understood why some people hate it so much, though. It's an interesting track.

I've only heard TTS twice, as I've yet to import my TUF single to my computer, so I can't really remember how the song goes

I'm missing the "Boomerang" tracks and "Bass Trap" so bear with me here:

1. The Three Sunrises
2. Wire
3. Pride
4. Indian Summer Sky
5. The Unforgettable Fire
6. MLK
7. Bad
8. Promenade
9. Love Comes Tumbling
10. Elvis Presley and America
11. A Sort of Homecoming

I like putting "Elvis" there because it's "Homecoming" backwards, making for a cool transition. I'd probably put one of the missing tracks in the top half, between ISS and the title track.

Seriously! once it gets started it's frickin' brilliant, and has some of my favorite lyrics in it:

"Me I'm on the outside tell me fade away"

And the ending!:

You say go, you live
Go live outside of me
Don't you leave
Don't leave out part of me
Then I can feel
Like I feel before
Like it hurt now
And I see the floor
If you pick me up
Bits and pieces on this floor

Jesus was supposed to be the ultimate sacrifice to do away with that and give us grace. And yet the church is out there insinuating that that wasn't enough. That if we so much as commit one tiny sin, we're gonna go to hell. WTF CHURCH?!

I am of the opinion that Three Sunrises does not fit onto UF at all.

The ending of EPAA is sensational.

"Elvis" is the closest Bono's gotten to making up Thom Yorke-esque lyrics, I kind of dig it for that reason.

"Stay safe above a b-side"

^ Only good part of the song.
