Song wars: LAPOE vs. Bullet the Blue Sky

It just hit me this morning that these songs seem so similar. Have at it!

LAPOE easily beats BTBS album version.
IT'S NOT EVEN CLOSE to the ZooTV, Popmart or Elevation live versions of Bullet.

I love the live versions of BTBS
I do prefer the album version of LAPOE
I don't really think they are that similar though

Bullet stomps LAPOE... I do think the live version of LAPOE might be more interesting then what we hear on the album... if they have a live version.

I think Edge could take the guitar solo at the end of LAPOE to higher planes that will hopefully blow our minds, much like in BTBS. We'll have to see on the tour.

too close to call until we hear 'love and peace' live.

i have a feeling every song they play live from the new stuff is gonna blow our minds.

I've gotta' agree with what most everybody else has said, so far: the album version of "Love and Peace" is a lot better than the album version of "Bullet," but doesn't hold a candle to the latter when performed live. That said, as I parrot what others have already mentioned, the final verdict won't be in until we hear the song on tour. Still...the album version of this song is fantabulous.

hehe, I've been thinking the past few days "LAPOE is the new BTBS". I never really liked Bullet and I love LAPOE.

Gotta go with Bullet the Blue Sky -- one of my favorites.

But LAPOE is pretty good too.

This song wars is absolutely ridiculous and nonsense
is something like compare Beatles I Am The Walrus with Yoko Ono´s don´t worry Kyoko

what did you think my friend when you posted these songs for a fight ?

Bullet The Blue Sky has really no competition here

Love and Peace or Else is brilliant. It's Imagine meets When the Levee Breaks filtered through Bullet the Blue Sky.

But again, I need live versions to make a decision

I respect your opinion my friend, but honestly Love And Peace or Else has nothing, really nothing from When The Levee Breaks nor Bullet The Blue Sky
for those who don´t know When The Levee Breaks is the last song from Led Zeppelin IV, and it has pretty much the same pulse if you compare with Bullet The Blue Sky, but the songs are 100% different. When The Levee Breaks is the heaviest song on Led Zeppelin IV, is 7 minutes long and guitars and voice are very distorded, and drums sound like if were recorded with a mic outside the room, AND IS SUCH A MASTERPIECE

Love And Peace Or Else has Pink Floyd´s money beat, and for me it has nothing to become a real classic
