Rise Up is fucking fantastic. I'd rate it above Trip, and honestly I've become bored of ISHFWILF so I'd take it over that too. DOOL is a bit of fun, though not on Rise Up's level of song quality.

Yeah, I don't care for WTTW that much, though it's not bad. I like Sweetest Thing and Deep In The Heart less.

Oh, I'm liking this better:

1. Beautiful Ghost
2. Streets
3. In God's Country
4. Spanish Eyes
5. Rise Up
6. Desert of Our Love
7. I Still Haven't Found...
8. Red Hill Mining Town
9. Bullet
---
10. Silver and Gold
11. Deep in the Heart
12. With or Without You
13. Luminous Times
14. Running to Stand Still
15. Race Against Time
16. One Tree Hill
17. Exit
18. Mothers of the Disappeared

Ending Side 1 with Bullet gives it a nice closing punch, while Side 2 now is decidedly moodier and packs some great atmosphere. Luminous Times -> Running... has an inspired transition actually.

I definitely agree about Rise Up and Desert. I Still Haven't Found... is one of my favorite songs and one of the ones that got me into the band, so it's got that going for it, which is nice.

Deep in the Heart at least goes somewhere I think, Walk just meanders and feels pretty blah. It's So Cruel without the drums. Sweetest Thing is alright and fits well with a few tracks, but I prefer the Single cut.

I like this more as well, though RHMT --> Bullet seems like a bit of an unusual transition. I also think ending a side with Bullet is strange, but your rationale of ending with a punch is sound, and I probably find it strange simply because I'm so accustomed to Bullet seguing into something rather than anything else.

2. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For
3. With Or Without You
4. Luminous Times

8. Running To Stand Still
9. Red Hill Mining Town
10. One Tree Hill
11. Exit
12. Mothers Of The Disappeared
I've got to try this.

Yeah, I can see that, too. If you listen to it as a straight playlist, the Bullet -> Silver and Gold transition stays. I think the juxtaposition of the optimism of Red Hill and the balls-to-the-wall craziness of Bullet works, too. It indicates the change you'll hear in the darker second half compared to the lighter first.

El-Mel, I dig your alternate Zooropa. I'm going to do ATYCLB now.

I'm just burnt out on ISHFWILF, that's all. Not really a comment on its quality, except maybe its staying power. I keep it on alternate JT listings and stuff, but often for my own personal enjoyment, I cut the track.

I think the reverse about WTTW and DITH. DITH has the atmosphere but doesn't use it. WTTW tries to use it to tell a story. Not entirely successfully, but the effort's there.

I personally love the Bullet--->Running segue, just as I love the Mofo--->Angels segue. The contrast in both is really cool.
