Well, it'll be more like an offshoot of Christianity rather than just another denomination. I mean... Christianity doesn't have magical penguin armies. My religion will.

I'm thinking maybe it should go between TTS and Pride?

I'd throw in Boomerang II before or after Love to make a better transition. Love is a good mid-tempo track to lead the progression toward the more atmospheric material and it's most logical placement is to put it after Indian, but it doesn't work as well as I'd like.

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
10. MLK - Sour milk/10

UF is definitely not my favorite U2 album by any stretch, but the pieces and the atmosphere are here. With some tweaks, this one could have been right up there. As it is, it's definitely not something I'll return to often, except for that brilliant first half.

Thanks for joining in the fun, Ax and co. It was worth it just to hear UTEOTW again.

Magical penguin armies?

As long as there are no non-falsifiable claims, I can totally dig this religion of yours.

July sounds pretty good before it, too.

It's been good fun, and the most U2 I've listened to in a bit. Thanks for suggesting the idea in the first place.

Also, I wonder - some kind of alternate UF list would surely go down better with you, no? You should one day do a running diary of one of the alternate lists that's been posted. I need to come up with my own alternate UF, a more concise one than the Promenade x2 one that uses every UF-era track.

Penguin armies... nice, like Batman Returns.

I'm running on fumes. Good night, fellas and fellinas.
