Did you put unreleased stuff like Be There on that disc too? That song should have made an album. Put that after Surrender and make 40 more like the live version, War would be a classic.

To me it isn't about getting it right or wrong but rather writing great songs. Nothing from the last two albums are ranked very high in my mind. Larry is lost. Edge isn't painting and Bono needs to learn to write great lyrics again. What they need is a new producer. A modern day Brian Eno getting the most out the band lyrically and sonically. They need me in a year or two.

No, it's a collection of songs somebody uploaded in lossless a while back.

1. Out Of Control (U2:3 version)
2. Stories For Boys (U2:3 version)
3. Boy/Girl
4. Another Day
5. Twilight (b-side version)
6. 11 O'clock Tick Tock
7. Touch
8. Things To Make And Do
9. J. Swallow
10. A Celebration
11. Treasure
12. Boomerang I
13. Sixty Seconds In Kingdom Come
14. Boomerang II
15. Deep In The Heart
16. Race Against Time

As you can tell, it's (mostly) chronological order, but it's still fucking awesome.

And yeah, Be There should have been on War - a little more development and it would've been quite good. The exclusion of Treasure is criminal too. Throw out Red Light and put Treasure in that spot.

That should be a good thing, although if he isn't playing guitar instead of painting we're in trubble.

Making a Desert Island playlist at the last minute is really hard. Even more so when you should be writing a poem for school.

I want to write something in the form of spoken word poetry. Like Walk To The Water or Luminous Times. Here comes a lovey-dovey poem. Delightful.

Soundscapes are the way to go, not bursting ear drums with ABOY's intro.
