I did this a while ago with NLOTH: first thing first is to get rid of SUC. I don't mind the song, but it doesn't fit with the album and is better as a B-side. I'm replacing it with the Linear version of Winter. Maybe a slight rewrite of Unknown Caller wouldn't go amiss to make it less "fellow kids", but that's neither here nor there.

Next is a reshuffle. The title track isn't really a good opener, so I'm going to go with something that has a better intro - Linear uses Unknown Caller and I really like that, so it'll be that one. I think MoS has to be the closer, and as for the rest I'm wanting to make it more of a thematic album - lots of the songs have an aspect where you can interpret it as talking about a person, either a peacekeeper or a journalist, in the Holy Land. So I think in that aspect it should be a bit more linear as to an overarching story (no pun intended.) Draft off the top of my head would be:

    Unknown Caller
    Breathe
    Get on Your Boots
    Winter
    White as Snow
    Magnificent
    NLOTH
    Fez - Being Born
    Crazy Tonight
    Cedars of Lebanon
    Moment of Surrender

It's not perfect, and still has a few issues IMO, but it now has a much better progression of a story. Protagonist arrives in this foreign land, young and full of hope, then watches as someone he knew gets killed in the conflict, he has a crisis of faith, he misses the birth of his kid and ends up jaded and disillusioned. Depressing as anything, but I do think it's better than the original to some extent.
