Found That Soul live in Cuba sounds more energetic than album version (which is as good as it can get). How can it be...

Recorded and used early takes, I think they said in interviews. So time to rehearse it better (and obviously not record another studio version when at that tightness!) probably.
If future FTS performances seemed flat, maybe that was subconscious reaction to albums band perceived reaction from public.
That sounded so clearer in head when it all came at once.

Trying to think which is the better 1,2,3: Crucifix Kiss, Methadone Pretty, Condemned to Rock n Roll... OR... Mausoleum, Faster, This Is Yesterday.

Or!!

Is there an even better one?

I see, that makes sense now. I never really understood all negativity towards Lifeblood KYE and Postcards (especially Postcards). Shame if public reaction alters band's own opinion about song or album but I guess it just happens.

Also, it's worth mentioning that there was a significant difference between their live sound and the production values (or lack thereof) at the time of KYE. To be fair, almost none of their albums are close to the live versions, but the majority of them are well produced. KYE is the opposite. It's not a bad production, but as SoS mentioned, it is deliberately rehearsed and recorded really quickly and with minimal production to keep the freshness/rawness. So it's basically like a demo. Almost all the live songs sounded absolutely monstrous compared to the album at the time.

You're almost certainly right, but at one point I would have said that same about This is My Truth, so you never know. I'm mostly just curious to see how they'd treat it. Would they put Masses on the album? Would they do a box set with it split over two albums as they originally planned?

It's also possible that Sony might want to do it anyway. Not all deluxe sets are done with the blessing of the artist involved.

Only worthwhile KYE20 would be to completely re-imagine it as the two separate albums they originally envisioned.

Haha, they eould most likely do somthing that made absolutly zero sense, like take Dead Martyrs off and swap it for Little Trolls.

The keyboards in the live version of Tsunami.
So do you think those notes have ever been heard in nightmares band members have had?
It does have a Horror film vibe to it but the song itself hasn't!

The keyboards in the live version of masses certainly haunt my dreams and waking life as well.

Do you think the Manics' people ever contact Kylie's people about getting her back on stage with them at some point - or vice versa.

(Possibly inspired by watching some of Kylie at Glasto and wondering if JDB might turn up)

Mirror Gaze sounds so much like The Bee Hives (the fictive band from Love Me Knight) ♥

Now I know why it was on Japanese release.

Love Mirror Gaze. Should’ve been a proper album track.

It is a wonderful song indeed. And so are The Bee Hives. ♥
Anyway, Love Me Knight is a 1980s Japanese comic series, later turned into cartoon. That's what I was talking about.
