I listened through it from beginning to end, and I'm quite happy with it. ADKOB makes it because of the transition into Beach Sequence, if nothing else. Plus, it's what, 2 minutes long?

Slug just didn't fit anywhere. I tried and, ultimately, failed with that one. United Colours--->Always Forever Now is a surprisingly good segue. Better than United Colours--->Slug, even.

It indicates the change you'll hear in the darker second half compared to the lighter first.
Yeah, I was guessing that arrangement was partly deliberate to keep Bullet --> Silver And Gold intact, which certainly strikes me as a solid pairing. Plus, even if RHMT and Bullet don't have the most perfect sonic cohesion, you have politically thematic similarities to create a linkage.

Also, just playing my alternate JT now, and holy fucking shit, you guys have got to try RHMT --> OTH. It is perfect.

Ha. I actually got a kick out of "Drunk Chicken," but not something I'd want to listen to repeatedly.

Yeah, so do I. My feeling on the new tracks:

1. Rise Up: fucking great song, I love it.
2. Desert Of Our Love: good, fun song.
3. Wave Of Sorrow: meh, would've been nicer as an instrumental; Bono ruins it at the end.
4. Drunk Chicken: well, it was odd the first time around. And I think that'll be the only time around.

Cool.

That does sound great! "Race Against Time" has a similar effect before "One Tree Hill," as well.

Axver's alternate JT has great flow, but one of the only truly fun moments on the album, Trip Through Your Wires, is sorely missing. Spanish Eyes can't fill that empty spot.

Luminous Times is shockingly good. I always forget this one.

I prefer to take Beach Sequence by itself, personally. I love that track. I love it enough to use it on my DI V list, in fact.

Damn, shame about that. I can see United Colours --> AFN working, now that you mention it. But United Colours after Daddy's Gonna Pay? I'm skeptical there.
