The worst part of the remasters has to be that I lost a lot of respect for Edge.

You could just say it went down too well, suspiciously well, and you better stay home to monitor things. :tempts:

Fuuun. That reminds me, I need to go to bed early so that I can get up in time for the joys of an ophthalmology appointment. Whee.

Oh Axver, though we may both love TUF, our feelings on War are quite the opposite

I guess you have to be in the right mood to appreciate it, or something.
I honestly think the reason I ended up not being able to listen to it all the way through the first try was that I wanted to listen to it on my trip home from school, and it was going to be great, and everything, but then I got too into listening to something else, and it got dark out before I realized it, and October was making me fall asleep, then my mom called while I was listening and finally I just ejected the tape and threw it across the car and I've been bitter ever since.

My War ranking:

1. New Year's Day
2. Like A Song ...
3. Drowning Man
4. Sunday Bloody Sunday
5. Seconds
6. Surrender
7. The Refugee
8. Two Hearts Beat As One
9. 40
20,000,000,000. Red Light

Love 1-6, like 7, meh towards 8-9. 40 is awesome live, though.

My version of War would replace Red Light with Be There and I suspect that Angels Tied To The Ground could make a neat closer in place of 40.

1. Seconds
2. Two Hearts
3. SBS
4. NYD
5. Red Light
6. "40"
7. Like A Song
8. Drowning Man
9. The Refugee
10. Surrender

But, it's more like 1-4 are all tied for first and 5-10 are tied for second. War isn't my favorite album, it's not even my second or third, it might be 4th, but War is the ONLY album by U2 that i like EVERY song on. I absolutely love War, it's just that the album feels kind of weak. TUF has a couple tracks I skip (Pride, ISS) but the songs are so deep and amazing.

Ashley, how on earth is Red Light not dead last?

Be There is a demo likely from 1982. Not really that good, I'd never use it for any more than a b-side. Angels Too Tied To The Ground is as yet unheard, to be released on the War remaster.

Personally, my alternate War subtracts Red Light and adds A Celebration and Treasure.

Red Light haters

I realize I'm pretty much alone on this board.

Excuse me while Red Light, EPAA, and I sit down for tea

Be There is a demo from the War sessions. I love it. It is just so beautiful.

Angels Tied To The Ground is the unreleased song on the upcoming War remaster.
