Native Son better than Vertigo, Xanax better than Fast Cars

I've only heard the 30sec clips in Itunes but these already sound better than the album version.

1) Do you agree?

2) Can s.one with the full versions of Native Son and Xanax please e-mail them to me at: lrcollins54@hotmail.com

I'd have to agree, they certainly match Bono's hype about their album sounding like a dragon/rock and roll on venus/monster guitars/ etc,etc....and certainly avant garde and far from safe. Sounds very much like Chris Thomas's style.

I like Xanax & White better than FC. However, Native Son isn't as good as Vertigo. (in my opinion)

I reckon it would be a bigger hit than vertigo..vertigo is mainstreaming it, but if u2 went with native then it would be a better album

I dont get how anyone can say one song is better than the other with a 30 second clip. No offense.

Native son is better than Vertigo by some margin, (the chorus at least). What were U2 thinking?

Totally thought you were talking about Xanax the pill.

Which, in all fairness, is better than any U2 song.

I want to know what U2 were thinking with Fast Cars? Xanax is soooo much better in that 30 sec clip. I can't stand Fast Cars, just dumb to make it the 12th track.

In addition, I think Yahweh (alt) sounds better... and Native Son sounds more interesting, but I can understand why U2 went with the pumped up, more commercial Vertigo.

It's just kinda sad, because U2 seemed to make the more commercial/safe choices rather than the most interesting.

On a whole, the album is very good, but not great. STYCMIOYO gives me chills, especially the SNL version

Thanx

Native Son and Xanax and Wine are interesting songs, but I like the album versions better.

Aaaachooo....I'm sorry I sneezed, but I could have sworn I heard someone say that Native Son was better than Vertigo. I know I heard that wrong....right?

Its clear that there is some disagreement here. That is inevitable with most things, and inevitably to be expected when discussing music. Clearly, Vertigo is more commercial-a hand to glove fit for the ipod ads- and in the same vein as other ipod songs.

Native Son however, is a far more interesting subject matter and involves some thinking rather than the 'let go' Vertigo.

Moreover, Xanax is miles ahead of Fast Cars...its great u2, just the name does it for me.
