But what they have chosen for the bonus tracks just ... leaves me empty. It's so insubstantial. How many mixes of New Year's Day do we need? At least use some demos, early versions, and stuff like that so we can see how the songs developed.

And October's just seems like a mishmash, like nobody even put any thought into how the songs should go together. It's just like U2:18 - it appears they gave a list of songs to a babboon and let it throw them into whatever order it felt like.
I still only count two: Saturday Night and Angels Tied To The Ground.

Sonically, it's an improvement over past releases. But the biggest revelation by far is The Rest Will Flow. Apparently, and I never knew this, on the original release the song was "sped up" to make it more radio friendly. It has been restored to the way it was originally intended and is absolutely gorgeous. They even made a point of putting this information in the liner notes.

Speed Of Life. Turns out a studio version of it exists after all.

Woah, really? Wow, I've got to hear this. Demonoid, isohunt, Sordo - don't fail me now!

It's all about Achtung Baby for me... Though, I wonder how good that one will be, seeing that just about all of us have the Salome Sessions which, frankly, aren't that awesome.

PS - It's really flipping hard to write a heart to heart email when you're at work. Just sayin'. Ugh.

Ax has probably said this thirty trillion times but if we can get Wild Irish Rose on RaH or Achtung, that'd be insane.

The only albums I like less than Achtung are ATYCLB and HTDAAB. That said, with my own alternate tracklisting, Achtung is top four or five material.

I hope that either RAH or Achtung at least gets Wild Irish Rose. That would be an improvement on the Axtung Beibi material. Though if they do use that stuff, it would at least be nice to officially have I Feel Free and Take You Down.

Yeah, Axver is quite anti-Achtung Baby. A shame.

I'm looking forward to that one as well.

I'm just astonished at some of the omissions on the Boy disc. Sure, we're getting Speed Of Life and Saturday Night, and I never expected them to use junk like Tonight or Inside Out, but the lack of The Dream Is Over, Lost On A Silent Planet, False Prophet, and Pete The Chop (and, if a studio version exists, Cartoon World) is incomprehensible. The only explanation I have is that they don't want to blow everything straight away and are holding onto some material for "OMG 40TH ANNIVERSARY!" and stuff like that.

Pete the Chop is on the War disc, isn't it?

For the record, my alternate Achtung that I mentioned before:

1. Zoo Station
2. Until The End Of The World
3. The Fly
4. Even Better Than The Real Thing
5. Mysterious Ways
6. Lady With The Spinning Head
7. Where Did It All Go Wrong?
8. Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses
9. Slow Dancing
10. Wild Irish Rose
11. Alex Descends Into Hell For A Bottle Of Milk/Korova 1
12. Acrobat
13. Love Is Blindness

I would only rate UF, JT, Boy, Passengers if it counts, and maybe October ahead of that. It would definitely be ahead of October if the mixing on songs like UTEOTW and Zoo Station weren't such a mess.
