The first three tracks, for what it's worth.

Haha, this album's two "singles" have a combined five votes. U2 need a new manager. Oh wait.

1. No Line On The Horizon
2. Moment Of Surrender
3. Cedars Of Lebanon

This album is the only one I really like since Pop. I'm not keen on every track but I think it's the band's most interesting and creative work since Pop.

Oh and I do like Stand Up Comedy too, as well as I'll Go Crazy! Can't stand Get On Your Boots though! Lol.

White, Cedars and Unknown Caller.  Lovely songs. Could have been such a better album if they'd stuck with the quieter stuff and not shoehorned the "pop" stuff on.

One reason why Cedars of Lebanon is so good is Bono's voice.  He uses the low register and doesn't push so hard like he does on most songs these days.  If he sang an octave lower on "The Little Things..." at least for the verses, I'd like the song a lot more.

I wish he'd get the message that we like his lower voice (another reason why Achtung Baby is so great.)

Voted Magnificent, MOS, Fez.

However, my favorite song to come out of these sessions are the alternative version of the title track (NLOTH#2). The album version is just so boring to my ears but the other one is really great.

So based off of the votes, this is how we'd rank the tracks:

Fez-Being Born

Nice to see Magnificent get some love!
