I like it and I don't like it. Despite my adoration of Together Alone, I've always thought it wasn't quite perfect, and one change I've made to my own playlist is to move Walking on the Spot (which I never liked in its "real" place) to the end of the album. It creates a wonderful "come down" after the intensity of the title track and works fabulously as an album closer. I think the applause at the end of the new version achieves a similar affect. The problem is, that effect is now there and can't be removed without either a) a little editing, or b) reverting to the original album.
The ending reminds me of the ending of Within You Without You from Sgt pepper. I like it . I agree about loving TA while realising it could have been even better. How You Can Touch could be left out is beyond me. I think Skin feeling should have been a B side , and I've never understood the love in for Catherine Wheels - it just meanders on and never really goes anywhere...
Add You Can Touch , I am In Love , and Blue Smoke for that matter at their expense , and you have a near perfect album in my opinion.
Still adore TA though !
