We didn’t get to talk about the two different versions of “Don’t Cry” on these two albums. First, the low-hanging fruit: I cite this as evidence of the albums’ “bloated” quality and that one of these tracks is essentially redundant filler.
Beyond that, though, I’m sure there are ways to justify having these two tracks on the same album for artistic reasons, so I’d like to hear them from you all! Get in the ring, motherf***ers!
