All's good in the hood Andy, I still lurk here when I get the chance - the great thing about music is that everyone hears different things and likes what they like, and your view on SUW is more than valid. In fact who am I to diss any of these records.
BTW, in reference to an answer you gave elsewhere, I too recall hearing that the studio tapes of RTS had been lost, which probably accounts for no deluxe version of the album. I believe that there was a studio version of Good Luck which was in a film but not on a soundtrack, but I'm not aware that anyone has heard the studio version of Suffocate. I believe that they also revisited it for SN/SM but Adam no longer likes the song so it didn't make the record. Not sure that the SN/SM version ever got out either. I hope that somewhere these things do exist and that one day they choose to release them, starting with the original version of AAEA....
Just looking at the Summer tour for 2017 - I like both bands but I reckon it means a roughly 75 min slot so it's likely to just be a festival type set and I understand that Matchbox 20 are the closing band this time round. For a band as good live as CC are, I think they've done way too many shared bill tours, and whilst money talks in the economics of touring, I cant help but wonder sometimes what could have been. In that respect, here in the UK we've been lucky to see the full length shows so many times.
