I like the drum breakdown around 4 minutes. That's very cool.

Ugh MLK while a good track on its own, is such a let down for me after EPAA

Have I made it clear that I fucking love EPAA?

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.
Ah, that looks pretty cool, though I'd be tempted to swap the order of Wire and Pride. I might just have to give that a try sometime. I'm skeptical of Promenade --> LCT, I must admit.

And I reckon TTS works well as an opener as long as it's followed by either ASOH or Wire.

As for the running diary: MLK is easily the weakest "song" here. It's just UF's live intro to me, really. Though it's a nice note to end the album on too.

And on my playlist right now, I have Bass Trap lined up to follow the album.

Funny story, once upon a time, I got online after grocery shopping, and my friend Alex immediately IMed me and went:

"Chass! Do you have MLK?!"

And I was like:

"Yeah, I just bought a whole gallon, why O_o"

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
9. Elvis Presley And America - That mess had something to do with Elvis?/10

Thanks.

Sunrises -> Pride -> Wire -> Indian sounds extremely cool going into each other. Throw the better Boomerang in there and it'd be great going into the title track.

MLK is interesting to put before or after Bad, I think. Whichever placement you pick gives both songs a different context.

Well, the ending you love so much is about Elvis's death, for starters.

In U2 by U2 Bono said it's because the song sounds like it's on a bunch of heavy drugs.
