I think that Maldini is a great football-player.

And of your singles...I think: 1. Undivided 2. Hook me up 3- Lucky

And I like your Bounce

Every **** album people think that almost all demos should have been on the album.
In the two last albums of course!

I've gotta say - I think Standing is a weak track.

Another Reason To Believe is my favourite demo. I think that if that was on the album along with No Regrets it could have changed the way a lot of people think about it. Why did Japan get the extra two tracks?

I've wondered if it's because it's got the "hallelujah baby rise up" in it and Bruce beat them to using the image of rising up with "The Rising." Do they really need another freaking Bruce comparison? It matters not that both acts were writing at the same time and both acts could smell the smoke of the Trade Center as it wafted over their homes. Bruce released his first.

Two albums does not make "every **** album. It's only Crush and Bounce that have had that reaction, mostly cuz it's true. Those two albums have the highest ratio of space wasting tracks that most fans agree shouldn't be there. Moreso with Bounce than Crush. Prior to that it's just been the odd song that they left off. Such as Edge of a Broken Heart for Slippery When Wet. But it wasn't until Crush that people started with replacing a song on the album with one of the existing demos.

I also think they really screwed up with Another Reason To Believe. Definately one of the best songs period. They went out of their way to avoid releasing that other than as a B Side single. It didn't even make the Target CD. I do think it was the direct references to 9/11 and they decided to minimize that in the end. I think that was an unfortunate choice. Anyway, had they put it on the album, I'd want them to make a few changes to the final version. For one thing, give it an ending, not the fade out.

As far as the rest of the demos....I really do not care for Alive at all. I can never get past the first 15 seconds of it before I'm hitting the next track button. Standing is another one that seemed to need a bit more work. On one hand I do like it, but it's tedious. The rest of the demos, Breathe, We Can Dance, Lucky, are all preferable replacements over the ballads that actually made the album.

Another Reason is a good song, but I'm glad they didn't put it on the album. It has the most obvious references to Sept 11, and I don't think it would have been a good idea to use that tragic day as a marketing device. Yes, Undivided and Everyday were written with Sept 11 in mind, but since they didn't mention it directly, those two songs can be interpereted in multiple ways. I don't think of Everyday as being a Sept 11 song. It wasn't until I heard Jon do an interview about the song that I learned that Sept 11 was an influence.

Well, it seems that the marketing 'experts' have really f***ed up in terms of choosing the singles from the last two albums (IML excluded), so why not get the fans to MAYBE play a more active part in choosing songs for sn album, etc. ?

It worked before, thats what made BJ who they are in the first place, sometimes singers are not the best people to know what their public need from them.
