:? Those are three of my favorite songs on RA.

Wasn't it recorded specifically as a b-side, after Riot Act was finished though? Down is an actual outtake, but this one really isn't.

That Italian site with the recording sessions says it was recorded during the original Riot Act sessions, but was also recorded again in December of 2002. Hard to say for sure, apparently.

Oh. Yeah, I have no idea. It's a RA b side, so I just figured. I really have knowledge of when songs were recorded and all that.

For some reason I always thought Fatal was a Riot Act-era song

Fatal is so good. Never was a huge fan of Other Side though.

Gun to head... I probably prefer Otherside to Fatal. But I adore both of them, really.

Had to play Other Side to really remember it, as soon as it started I thought, "Oh yea...this song is fuckin' good."

Yeah it is! But... Hard To Imagine is only worse than about 3 or 4 other PJ songs though. To be fair.

Fatal is really fascinating song for me. I remember when those outtakes first dropped and people freaking the fuck out about them. Fatal was the one everyone was universally praising. I was really surprised when I finally heard them and found that it was the least interesting of the three. It's a good song. I like it a lot, don't get me wrong. But it's never hit me the way it hits others. Other than Sweet Lew, I'd say it's my least favorite of the Binaural era outtakes that we've heard. But it's still goddamn lovely. Which just goes to show how strong those sessions were.
