Yes there can. It's eighth on my War ranking, with only 40 and Red Light below it.

I genuinely love The Dream Is Over and Lost On A Silent Planet, and rank them highly. Plus, you've had your official Street Mission release on iTunes.

But yeah, they need material for the 40th anniversary cashgrab alright.

It's strange how Streets has steadily, gradually declined for me. It used to be in my top five U2 songs. Now it's just in the top thirty or so. WOWY, however, has stayed pretty static. And the live versions of it from 1987-92 are so fucking awesome.

Only if you want to. I understand why a lot of people think it's a "weak" album (whatever the hell that means... well, it just means they don't like it, but they're trying to convince people there's some sort of universal flaw in the music to blame, rather than some boring matter of personal taste), but I love it. I guess you have to be in the right mood to appreciate it, or something.

Is it wrong that I'm hoping for a rerecording of EPAA <_< I love the song, but I'm curious if Bono would like to clarify those lyrics XD
I'm with you.

We all sort of knew/suspected that Boy would have the early tracks and October wouldn't have many unreleased tracks but there is no excuse for what they did with War. They had to have had more than one good track they never released. It isn't like the stuff carried over into TUF.

It makes me sad that my rating/review of October on Rate Your Music is the most glowing there. I mean, it's pretty glowing alright, but I seem so alone! Poor unappreciated October.

Thus, for the record:
Gloria
ITABTAW
Rejoice
Fire
Tomorrow
Scarlet
