The Music and Lyrics / Re: Why Are Exit and MOTD So Quiet on iTunes?
« Last post by Amrice78 on January 18, 2019, 08:47:16 AM »
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 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...:-)

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?

Too confusing.  People like to know what they're getting.

2018 was another year U2 ignored the world outside of Europe and North America. I guess playing to lots of 3/4 filled arenas is what the band enjoys these days...

Yawn.

I think if they had pulled that off that would have been something else!

General U2 Discussion / What Could Have Been....I&E
« Last post by dwaltman on January 16, 2019, 07:07:53 PM »
If I remember correctly, one of the original ideas for I&E was to have 2 successive nights in a city...and I night and an E night.  Suppose night 1 was the setlist at the end of the Innocence tour and night 2 was the setlist at the end of the Experience tour.  How might that have gone over?    I guess the fan club CD release captures this idea...just voted for the first 2 songs to be released digitally.  I voted for The Troubles and The Little Things That Give You Away.

Anyway, I think back-to-back nights with those setlists would have been crazy good.

Yes, great U2 year for me too, really getting into the second wind of my U2 fandom. Saw them live for the first time since the 80s. Wish I had seen JT30 but it there was too much going on with my mom then. So glad to have re-discovered them; they have been a great comfort in difficult times.
