I can't remember which Backmask U2 thing it is, but there was one I enjoyed a fair bit.

Personally, though, the best of the Axtung Beibi outtakes is, without a doubt, Take You Down. What a fucking great track that is.

The fights are made even better when Bono falls off the stage (I hope he's ok)

yeah yeah yeah


I fucking Hate Mysterious Ways

I know people won't agree but I think my favorite version of The Fly including all the live versions is The Lounge Fly Mix. It is all about the fat lady.

I need to find a download for Axtung, or at the very least, choice material from it. But not now...I'm just getting back into the U2 groove. Don't wanna overwhelm myself

The best thing about Mysterious Ways is the exotic feeling to the song and Edge's guitar solo. I just love it.

God, that's classic.

What do you have against MW? (Ali's going to kill you.)

Believe it or not, I've never heard The Lounge Fly Mix.

Yeah, the whole of Axtung is a waste of time. But a good one disc summary would be quite worth your time. Take You Down, I Feel Free, the Acrobat demo, instrumental EBTTRT - quality stuff.

I'm like 95% sure you'd hate it so that might not be a bad thing.

Yeah, given how long U2 take to make albums these days, a long break is pretty easy to take.

I can't believe we've had two Porcupine Tree albums, an EP, a few more b-sides/rarities, two world tours, and two live albums between HTDAAB and the next album. Oh, and before the new U2 album comes out, PT will play another show for a live album, though I imagine the album itself won't come out until next year.

(I should point out here that besides PT, between HTDAAB and the new U2 album, Steven Wilson has also released a studio album and a live album with Blackfield, an album with No-Man, an album with Bass Communion, and probably other stuff I'm forgetting.)

I think it's a rebellious teenager thing. MW and Pride are mom's two favorite U2 songs. MW and Pride are, incidentally two of my least favorite U2 songs. Add to that that I hear those two songs on the radio ALLLL the time. And MW has been on a CD at work. It all equals satan.

As for the song itself, I'm not a big fan of the exotic feel myself. That's why I freaked out when I heard Moroccan influences. I'm still worried, but not so much now that we've heard some clips and such. Lyrically, it's only a little better than average.


TTTYAATW is such a hit or miss song for me. Sometimes, like right now, I really like it. Other times I realize the lyrics kinda suck. However, I will always love the "Oh, and you just gotta s-, you just gotta make your faith sing..." part.

I'd have to check the dates, and whether or not they're actually about to release another album or not, but if The Killers release an album this fall, I think they will have released 3 albums, and completely existed during the space between Bomb and This Album

Hah, my mother loves MW a lot too. How old is your mother? I have a theory that any woman who was in her early 30s at the start of the 1990s loves MW. I just find MW studio to be pathetically weak compared to the live versions, and Edge's guitar tone has always been better live. It sounds a bit ... muffled, I guess, in the studio.

... wait, that's a line in TTTYAATW? I don't recognise it at all.

When I feel the moment is right, I will hunt this down.
