LH and TCB are on SOI, just not for free!  ;)

Still loving LH, and yes, I know I'm in the minority that I like it more than TCB.

I also still love This Is Where You Can Reach Me Now and it's sitting there begging for a single release!

Yup, I'll agree with that too Mom, way better than TCB!

I love the groove of LH, but TCB's lyrics are terrific and it has a great sound too. I do wish there was just a bit more lyric for LH and then there would be more people liking it as well as TCB.

Ooh Doc will have a fine fine evening now! Enjoy Doc! :)

I can not believe they left this song off of the album. Such a fantastic riff needs to be heard. It could have been the first single. It's better than Miracle and Boots for def.

It does need a wee bit more in the musical interlude section for it to have been on the initial release. But, wouldn't that have been grand?! Although, as it is we got two Christmas mornings in a very short period of time! It's all good!  8)

Does anyone else think this song should have taken the place of "Volcano" on the album? I think they fit into the narrative of the album in a similar way (they both connect to the rage of youth, right?).

There's some thematic connection, but they are different. I think LH should follow "Volcano."

I see what you're saying...I am just of the opinion that "Volcano" is a really boring song while "Lucifer's Hands" is a good song, so I wish they had used "Lucifer's Hands" on "Disc 1" and made "Volcano" a bonus track.

Well, I think LH and TCB beat all of SOI's songs, so I understand where you're coming from. Be that as it may, it seems to me that SOI's greatest strength is in its honest, at times gut-wrenching emotionalism. "Volcano" has that in spades, so even while it'll probably never be a classic U2 song to me, it fits well on SOI.

They should have left the Stingray keys on it somewhere.

You mean those series of three ascending notes with a tone that sounds like a Duracell commercial? They have them in the end of the second verse and right before every chorus. I'm kind of torn about it because I think having that part in there really adds to the song musically (it sounds really cool!) but it also is harder to focus on the lyrics in the small part where they do have it...so maybe they thought it sounded too cluttered to keep the part through the entirety of the verses.

They could have let the intro be just a little bit longer and had the " Duracell" sounds before Bono starts to sing .

I agree. I would have liked that.
