General U2 Discussion / U2.com merchandise sizing question
« Last post by trumpy on January 18, 2019, 01:10:08 PM »
I still have a 25% off coupon from the fanclub site I wanted to use and was thinking about buying a hoodie. Does anyone have an idea what their sizes run? I checked two of my own jackets (non-U2), one is a medium and the other is a large \_(ツ)_/ I was just curious if their hoodies were smaller than average or not. Thanks for any help!

The cassette (showin' my age there) that I bought in 1987 had the same thing...  I'm thinking that the emphasis on Adam's bass for these two kinda brings the volume of everything else down during the compression/mastering process...  I can't even listen to the original album anymore...  'Opening Night Live In Vancouver' from the 30th Anniversary Tour is my go to now...  it sounds so much better, especially the two songs you mentioned here...  sounds to me like your iTunes download is true to the original though...:-)

It's like day and night between Exit on the album and Exit live. Exit live is a beast of a rocker while Exit on the album feels more cinematic and rocks; although the lights, the screen, and Bono's character bring that cinematic element to the live performance. I wish that it would've been a setlist regular, but it not being that way made TJT30 Exit special.

It is the same on the CD as well.  I've always had to turn the radio way up at the beginning of Exit.  I do think they did it on purpose, as Exit is so dark and menacing.  For Mother's, it's quiet, but not as quiet.  I think this was done intentionally as well due to the despair in the song.

The Music and Lyrics / Why Are Exit and MOTD So Quiet on iTunes?

Disclaimer: I have the digital copy of the Super Deluxe 30th Anniversary edition of The Joshua Tree, purchased from iTunes. I can't comment on the following situation as it pertains to any other versions.

Does anyone else find Exit and Mothers of the Disappeared to be disproportionately quiet compared to the rest of the songs on the album? I feel like the two are barely audible compared to the other nine tracks. Is this issue unique to the iTunes version that I have, or is this a general problem with those two songs?
