New Year's Day from Popmart is amazing. The keyboard echoes more and it becomes hugely atmospheric.







The best version of Native Son i've ever heard is Vertigo.

I can't stand the Elevation Tour personally.

The Fly Elevation is overrated because of the intro. The guitar sounds awful for the duration of the song.

I am in complete agreement with you. The only song to have its best version be an Elevation Tour version is Gone. For most songs, their Elevation Tour version was the worst.

OK Ax, albums it is...

WTSHNN - JT tour
ISHFWILF - Lovetown (though I kinda dig the acoustic Zoo takes)
WoWY - Lovetown
Bullet - ZooTV
RTSS - ZooTV
RHMT - N/A
IGC - JT
TTYW - JT
One Tree Hill - Lovetown

Well that wasn't much fun...they need to play more JT songs on other tours...guess they forgot there were 2 sides to that album.

I agree with most of your assessment of JT. However:

Streets: Lovetown - you just can't beat the 1989-12-26 performance, and the others from Lovetown were really special too. Best opening snippets the song has ever had.
RTSS: JT/Lovetown - one reason and one reason only: stiiill ruuuuunniiiiiing ...
