I like the new WOWY and One Tree Hill mixes and I've grown used to the new RHMT mix, but that's all that really impresses me. The Streets mix is terrible.

It's different, maybe that's what I like. Murky and confusing at times. The vocal track is incredible.

Definitely digging the Lanois mixes the most. Which isn't surprising considering he co-produced TJT and has a lot of emotional investment in the album.

Flood was there too, but his new mix is disappointing.

I agree on Streets. It's very different, and the difference showcases the alternate lyrics.

I love Lanois' mixes the best.  I wish he were producing SOE.  Flood's Streets mix is just so weird.  Why does it quickly fade in mid song.  Sloppy...  I dig some of the atmospherics but that fade is unforgivable.  Lillywhite's ISHFWILF mix is interesting as it showcases some of the underlying rhythmic elements.  I think the OTH and BTBS remixes are interesting as well but I am glad I didn't purchase this.  Of course the b-sides we already had are brilliant.

I love the live tracks.  Much better than the Paris concert in many ways.  This is where this set shines. 

I too wish we would have gotten some good early Kindergarten type mixes as well. 

Side note: Hope we get some more good quality ZooTv shows in the future from early in the tour.  The show I saw in early '92 in Tacoma was amazing.

^^Agreed about the MSG live set. Great concert. Now for the 35th anniversary or something I hope they release a full live album from Tempe AZ that they used in the Rattle and Hum film.

I was mostly disappointed in all the remixes. I had been looking forward to them, as I *loved* Lanois' new mix of A Sort of Homecoming from the TUF remaster, but these were mostly super boring.

Streets remix is kinda messy but I love how the the different lyrics sound. The fade by the end is cool, I definitely imagine it being used as soundtrack for some sports event ad. I also noticed that by 3:30 you can hear a part of WOWY in the background, strange.

YAS, love the new mixes, love love love WOWY seems very fresh, Bullet is what is would be if they released this song in 2017... OTH was beautiful, Silver and gold w/ Keith richards is fire .. Bonos vocals yassss

Question - Beautiful Ghost/Intro to songs of experience ... I don't get it ? I initially thought It would like a new song off SOE... or is a demo? Highly Confused

Lillywhite's mix of Still haven't found is ok...Eno's "reprise" mix of OTH is weird. 2 mins or so and it's over.

Beautiful ghost is a JT sessions leftover.

Beautiful Ghost is from 2004, or so. It's just a poem of William Blake

Doesn't sound too promising.  My only debate is the pretty box and book.  Otherwise, maybe I'll just download the new mixes and maybe the live disc, and call it done.

I agree with you--though of course, I'd already had the b-sides.  (Twice, in fact.  Three times, in some cases!)

The show is really pretty good--it's just a bummer they cut out arguably the most interesting tracks.

Regardless of whether or not it's complete, the mixing is among the best I've heard for a live show, it's absolutely insane

U2 need Lanois and Eno to make great music again.
