Extended usually means the same vocals looped over and over, unfortunately.

This should be entertaining.

That was a fun read. I agree, who the hell puts Scarlet in between two drum driven songs?!

Thanks.

Have you heard the live performance of Scarlet? It is more raw than the studio version - but the point still stands about its placement between WAS and ITABTAW being illogical. The whole second disc reeks of a bunch of live songs being thrown together with absolutely no thought given to whether the disc has any cohesion at all.

I don't think I've ever heard that version of Scarlet. The scariest thing about it is that Edge would have been okaying this stuff. What does that say about the cohesion of the next album.

I would firmly maintain that every U2 album is poorly tracklisted and U2 themselves have barely a clue about it. Hell, the tracklisting for JT was supposedly based on some woman (I forget who) simply ranking the tracks from 1-11. YES, SHE RANKED TRIP THROUGH YOUR WIRES ABOVE ONE TREE HILL. I still don't want to believe that tale is true, but I'm told it's stated in U2 By U2 (I read it in order to UF then just skipped around, so I don't remember seeing that comment myself).

Would have been good if Exit was her favourite.

Well I'm off in a little while to the therapist. I honestly don't know if I can tell her what I told my mom.
