Funny how they never could get it right.
Now there's a song I wish they'd done in Australia. Since they hadn't played live for months, I can understand why they didn't, as you aren't going to rehearse shitloads just for three isolated gigs, but it still would've been awesome.

Never could get it right though?

I've decided that the original U.S. version of The Sky Moves Sideways comes closest to what the album should have been, as it includes Stars Die.

Include the full version of Moonloop instead of the edit, and add Prepare Yourself, and there's your winner.

The Sky Moves Sideways (Phase 1)
Stars Die
Moonloop
Dislocated Day
The Moon Touches Your Shoulder
Prepare Yourself
The Sky Moves Sideways (Phase 2)

It's all about Arab and Indian guys, for me.

If I disappear, have a good one, folks.
Does this mean the upload didn't make it through?

Nevermind! Mine's still going, if you drop out I'll email it to you anyway.

She's been going tanning on a consistent basis for the last month, and I have to say it's making her look worse. She wasn't exactly bad looking beforehand, so I don't get it.

I honestly find a pale complexion to be more attractive in almost all cases. I don't even see the point in tanning. If it just happens naturally because you spend a lot of time outside, that's one thing, and that also rarely looks bad. But putting in effort just strikes me as a total waste of time.

Each to their own, I suppose.

I've had to restart it twice.

I imagine it won't finish until after I've gone to bed, I'm afraid. I'll e-mail the link to you when I get up, if that proves to be the case.

Perhaps a little sun here and there is ok, but for some who go overboard, it does indeed look awful.

Ah, yeah, that seems fair. The British edition was pressed too early to include Stars Die, no?

I tend to be rather content with the 2 disc remaster though, as the definitive edition. It's not exactly what you'd throw at a casual fan, but if you're right into PT, it's perfect.

I think SW just changed his mind after, realizing that Stars Die was too good not to be on there, so when it came time for it to be released here, he added it.

The two disc remaster is beautiful, but I would've used the lineup I posted before, and then on the second disc, have the alternate version of the title track by itself, or perhaps add Men Of Wood, too.

I put the songs together on my iPod the way I wanted, using Stars Die and Moonloop from the second disc (as they flow together) right after Phase 1, then continuing on with the rest. It works perfectly, I must say.

The shoegazer kick I'm on tonight refuses to die. Ride's Dreams Burn Down is very -worthy.
