A member who cannot make polls asked me to start this thread for them and asked not to include Crazy since its been the remix version.

Crazy has improved the most exactly because of the remix.

Otherwise I'd say Unknown Caller. It's incredibly, spine-chillingly good.

Moment of Surrender.

I don't feel strongly about it on the album, but live it is chilling, thrilling and stellar.

UC - may fav song on the disc, but live it goes to another plane. It is slightly faster, and the outro chorus is gold

If for some strange, horrendous reason they don't add this back to the setlist, or decide that we US fans aren't worthy of hearing Unknown Caller, I may actually cry.

Boots, with UC as a very close second. UC is actually my favorite NLOTH song at the moment, I think.

I'd like to love Boots, but I still can't love it.

Yet another vote for UC from me. I like the album version, but I've really enjoyed the bootlegs I've heard.

Unknown Caller for me.

On the album, I didnt really get the fuss. Outside of the Edge solo at the end, I always thought it was a good song, but nothing great or inspired like many others seem to think. Live, it is far superior.

Moment of Surrender just has the passionate outpouring gospel type sound live, even more so than the studio version. This is another big improvement, though the album version is great as well. I think MOS has the chance to be the same kind of intense live tune as Bad and Love is Blindness when they finally get it down fully.

Honestly I wouldn't say any of them needed improving, except SUC and it hasn't appeared yet.

NLOTH, Mag, UC, Breathe, and MOS are great studio tracks, I think saying UC has made the biggest improvement makes it sound like it wasn't great, I think its been the biggest surprise as a live highlight, but I very much liked it already. I'd definitely pick Boots, because the arrangement has improved since the promo shows immensely. MOS features such an incredible vocal performance on the album, its going to be near impossible to replicate that night to night throughout the whole 7 minute song, occasionally its lifted off the ground, but its not there yet, for me.
