You did not just leave out COBL. Are you serious?

Smile is just an unfinished version of Mercy, right? Maybe instead of Smile, COBL could be placed on the tracklist.

Smile sounds nothing like Mercy except in the mood the song creates..

4- Flower Child
5- All Because of You
6- A Man and a Woman

I also noticed you left out OOTS. Well I guess not everyone's going to be happy with any tracklist.

Sweet! Thanks!

I was just going off the preview, which sounded eerily similar to Mercy. Judging by the past few posts, however, I guess you can't judge a book by its cover.

No prob...i think Smile is the best track from the Complete U2 unreleased stuff.

How could OOTS be left off i agree, now HTDAAB is getting close to a double disk lol!

When I heard the live version of COBL I was so excited but i think the production is pretty bad.

I still enjoy the song, but it doesn't have that special 'magic' that mercy and smile have. Miracle drug is also beaten up by production, it could have been a classic, and it's still really close, plus the tour will make it sound better, like UTEOTW, it's more listenable after heard live.

I think the next album has to be VERY raw, almost unproduced as the songs that didn't make HTDAAB.

Origional of the Species is a good song and fits thematically, but I think Xanax and Wine would have been better in it's place sonically, more fitting with vertigo/aboy/love and peace, etc..

you guys should try the playlist I poted in the first post, wow...lol! And yes, Not one playlist can ever please anyone!!!! wierd!

Ah now I would keep every track on the album, remix a few of them, and change the order. It would look like:

1. Vertigo
2. City of Blinding Lights (Remix)
3. Miracle Drug
4. SYCMIOYO
5. All Because Of You (Remix)
6. Crumbs From Your Table (Remix)
7. Love and Peace or Else
8. A Man and a Woman
9. Original of the Species
10. One Step Closer
11. Yahweh

May anyone send me Smile and Xanax and wine ? I haven´t heard those songs yet

Well, IMO this album should have been different in many aspects:

1- Different Tracklisting: For example, Mercy and Fast Cars instead of One Step Closer and Sometimes You Can´t Make It On Your Own.

2- Production: a more risky and new sound, not that "classic" epic intended sound. Also MORE DRUMS !!!! Lacks power with that very hidden drums.

3- Bono and The Edge: Both should have sounded different, don´t get me wrong, Edge´s guitars aren´t that bad, is just we are so used to listen to that "classic" guitars that I really wanted something brand new and fresh. Bono sounds equal on each song, I mean, there´s no different sounded voices like Zoo Station, Lemon, Zooropa, Wake Up Dead Man, HMTMKMKM, etc. For example, in Vertigo ( Jacknife remix ) he sounds 1000 times better than the CD version, specially during lines ( not chorus )

4- ANOTHER COVER: I remember many creative fans posted here several interesting covers better than the Punk intended official


I´m still imagining how good could have been this album, really

If you think Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own should have been left off, you're on crack!


( I do agree Mercy, Fast Cars should have been included, and that there should have been a rockier approach to recording)



Sadly however, you seem way too nostalgic for past triumphs..which is odd since thats what you're criticising the band for (being stuck in the past)
