  1. Before I started working out of college, I thought choosing the right career path was a super important decision that would have major repercussions if I got that first step wrong. In hindsight, the thing I got wrong was not trying enough jobs at the start of my career - it's so hard to know if you'll like a job until you do it or have direct working relationship with someone doing it. And then it turns out for me (and many other people) that the work itself doesn't really impact your happiness - the people that you are surrounded by will make or break how much you look forward to work or despise it. my 2 cents.
  2. pretty excited about this. Then again, I was pumped for They Shall Not Grow Old, but this Beatles one looks like it has more potential.
  3. I had this one in the 200+s. This one just sounds so safe and bland to me, it's almost annoying how predictable it is. It's not Joey Ramone or Helter Skelter grating, just un-interesting. This is all subjective and I have no issue if people feel the same about Scarlet, for example. I've liked the recent albums and seeing them live even bumped them up a notch. On re-listen with the whole catalog, Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience are both safer albums... nothing wrong with them, but not much really interesting or that will stand the test of time and re-listens. Still way better than REM's later albums.
  4. You gotta hydration or gel strategy yet?
  5. I dunno - I find it to be a really relaxing little interlude. it's obviously very simple, but what elements that it does have strike a chord with me. I wasn't consciously doing ratings within albums, but I have this 4th of songs from October; an album that I'm not a huge fan of, but I do enjoy this song. I've been open when I think I've over/under rated songs with the benefit of time and hindsight and I'm comfortable with the tier that I put Scarlet. If you don't like it, then more for me.
  6. Awesome work out there @tri-man 47 and @SteelCurtain! That performance is as sweet as the cream pie for which the town was named.
  7. I don't think there is a right answer on this. The choice on original song to cover and what direction they go can influence how good you think the new song is. I don't think I'm unusual that if I like the original, I'm going to like a cover true to the original. And vice versa. One of my favorite albums of the century is sun kil moon's tiny cities - a 'cover' album where the covers sound nothing like the original. Its all subjective and we're going to like what we like.
  8. Yea, I'm hung like planet Pluto, hard to see with the naked eye But if I crashed into Uranus, I would stick it where the sun don't shine
  9. My problem with Fortunate Son is that I've heard it so many times, it's lost any of its punch. While it's completely on brand for U2 to cover this song, it just seems so expected and I didn't get anything new or interesting from it.
  10. it's probably just me, but I think it would be more interesting if you provided your rankings or input why you like a certain song rather than the drive-by #### on the rankings and leave. it seems like you have listened to their catalogue quite a bit, so I am genuinely interested in your takes.
  11. For some reason, some of these Zooropa and Pop songs are polarizing to me. I tend to either really like, or they are nails on chalkboard. Miami fits in the latter. Especially when U2 tries to do these rebellion-angst tunes in their later years - it's a tightrope to not come across phony and Miami misses the mark in my book.
  12. I definitely rated this too high. Take any of my B-sides with a grain of salt: I'm not familiar with them and I listened to each for like a minute and had to decide if it was better or worse than the last B-side I just rated and I threw it into a tier. This must have been better than whatever B-side preceded it, but on re-listen, it's not a strong entry.
  13. And yeah I'm the outlier on Stateless too. I like the tonal vibe of it. I'm not a musician, but obviously I'm listening for something else. I may have it a smidge higher than deserved but I'll stick with the 100 to 120 tier. I also like the Passengers soundtrack project thing they did.
  14. As we go through this, I will pop up the complete u2 Spotify list to find song X. Then I will hear a few more songs on random from the list. I heard Bass Trap the other day and I was hoping I had it ranked high and I did. I really like this tune. One, I will probably over rate unforgettable fire throughout this countdown cause of nostalgia and it was my first entry to the band. Second, I always "like" different songs based on the vibe and the sound ; I rarely pay attention to the lyrics or the meaning of a song. I stick with my high rating on this one. It's a good tune.
  15. Great job!! All of that prep paying off. Crazy negative split!
  16. Coming up on tower of London and Paul's cathedral. I'm sure all of that history is at the top of his mind.
  17. It's like watching NFL on the west coast.
  18. He is further but that was the only split I could understand.
  19. Through the half at 1:36. Right on track. Cmon SteelCurtain!
  20. Congrats on the PR @OrganizedChaos!
