imo, MOS and Fez-Being Born are the two songs that stick with me from NLOTH. Magnificent is up there too, but the live performances are really hit or miss. However, every time I hear MOS live performance I am astounded by how soulful it is. I wish they had followed the original process and completed their "modern hymns" style album.
I think they messed up in thinking that there have to be "hits" on an album. Did Unforgettable Fire or Achtung Baby scream out with "hit songs"? Not really, a lot of those albums were not cookie cutter. I had no issue with the music from NLOTH, but a lot of the lyrics were cringe worthy
