My personal favourites are Even Less, Piano Lessons (my favourite PT song full stop), Pure Narcotic, This Is No Rehearsal, Stranger By The Minute, and A Smart Kid. Though A Smart Kid took forever to grow on me and I still hate the title.
Ah, we have a Stupid Dream listener. Excellent.

My personal faves are Even Less (which is probably my favorite PT song, or at least in the top 3), Piano Lessons, Pure Narcotic...wait, see a pattern here?

I think they had enough songs from that session that were good. It needed a few swap outs, overhauled production, and a change in the tracklisting. It would be in the top two if done correctly, for me.

At least we can agree on this! I think Slave Called Shiver deserves a nod too. Colin Edwin abso-fucking-lutely rocks the bass on that one.

Based on the live versions, I agree. Ultraviolet is a fucking anthem live, but on the album it just sounds like a U2-ish pop song.

Every song on this thing can pretty much get a nod, really. The only one I tend to skip at times is Tinto Brass.

Usually U2 attempts to do things better live, but with Achtung baby, you can just tell it was bad production. Most of it is core parts of the songs that shine through live and are muddled out in the studio.

Ultraviolet Live
Ultraviolet Studio ... average

I usually skip the last few minutes of Don't Hate Me. I think it would have been better as a more concise song.

Also, it's a shame the full Even Less didn't make the album, as I love the second half of it.

I don't like the last couple of minutes of the album Even Less. That kind of dragged on.

How's the second half compare?

Agreed. That would have kicked ass.

It's rockin' and expansive, and adds a couple of verses of lyrics. I'm quite fond of the "fuck you and your book too/you can have it back/when I'm gone, these songs will be my tracks" verse.
