True but that isn't saying much. Walk To The Water, Spanish Eyes, Wave of Sorrow, Luminous Times and Deep In The Heart are good enough to make an album even if they needed a little more work.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

Yeah but this isn't a knock against everything that did make the album, which was all fabulous. Could they ahve done a double, or put out R+H earlier and with more original stuff on it? yeah, but JT is fine.

Absolutely, they just got closer there. Spanish Eyes for TTYW should have been obvious, but they did pretty well.

UF: EPAA, 4th of July, MLK? All weaker than the B-sides.

I have Zooropa in mine. The very end of that song matches up perfectly with another song (that squeaky disc sound), which I have matched it up with.

Oh I agree that the Joshua Tree is fine. I'm just saying those songs deserved better. Walk To The Water is the best song ever written in my opinion. It deserved better than a b-side.

I'm not a huge fan of Walk to the Water. I think most of the Joshua Tree session tracks were superior to it. It's a good tune, though.

Just imagine what kind of unreleased stuff we get for TUF. How much of that will be better than the songs already there. See I really think the band are terrible at choosing which songs to finish. TUF was a great album and was their most cohesive album but I think when we see the unreleased tracks we'll see how much more it could have been.

Ahh, I used New Year's Day, as it mateches up with a lot of the sounds of the more current bands I put songs on by.
