I must say that I placed "Winter" (Linear version) on my NLOTH playlist on itunes, between Breathe and Cedars. I did that 4 years ago, and I think I kind of forgot that it wasn't really on the album!

This is tight between Crazy Tonight and Magnificent for me. Crazy Tonight is lazy pop, but it's not pretending to be anything other than pop. Plus, it spawned the cool live remix. Magnificent is trying to be a big anthem and fails miserably. Still, objectively, Magnificent is probably a hair better, so I am voting Crazy Tonight.

Cedars. I respect the band for doing it, I'm sure the lyrics are fantastic. But I NEVER listen to it. I don't like it. At least I dig the live remix of Crazy, and Boots made my running playlist.

Crazy Tonight, even though I don't hate it as much as others do. If I were voting on the live version, I'd rank it much higher, but I'm going by the album version here.

I can't believe motherfucking Cedars is getting the same treatment as Boots and Crazy Tonight, two completely inconsequential tracks that drag the album down. God forbid the bpm drops below 120.

Has to be Crazy tonight.

Boots isn't a bad song, just a bad 1st single.

Boots. Definitely Boots. All the other songs are markedly better. Hope Cedars and WAS stick around for a good long time. Two of the four best NLOTH tracks.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Aw man, not Crazy... that was one of my first favorites on this album. And I like Stand Up Comedy too, but it was predictable for it to get out first...

This is a pretty good collection of songs. Um... I vote Cedars of Lebanon.

I'm not sure what to vote for.

Crazy - not as good as other pop-rock songs like "Beautiful Day", but not bad either. Catchy.

GOYB - Kind of messy, but great live and gets better after the beginning.

Cedars - Like it, but I like "White as Snow" much more for a slower song.

Guess it doesn't matter since they'll all probably be gone one after the other as the next 3...

Yea I'll keep voting for Cedars. Crazy Tonight is probably one of my favourite songs off this record.

Don't worry baby, it's gonna be all right. Uncertainty can be a guiding light...
