I plan to get the new CD too, very soon! Nice to hear good reviews...............trouble is, once I get hooked on their new stuff, I'll want to see them again, but can't get too excited to attend a stadium concert.... Uggghh...........Gillette Stadium in Foxboro would be the place closest to me. Saw Paul there twice and he was just too darn far away :-/
wait, you're a ma**hole too? holy crap. thats like 3 towns from me. i plan on going to the concert in september there with my buddy.
I'm not a U2 fan, but I was digging their 18 Singles album lately. Although I already knew all those classics, I was nicely surprised when I sat and paid real attention to their songs. That's a lot from a close-minded 60's fan like me. I especially fell in love with two of their songs: "I Will Follow" and "Sunday Bloody Sunday" (great beats!).Love the line: "The real battle just begun, to claim the victory Jesus won."
I quite liked U2 early on. Probably up to Unforgettable Fire. The songs you mentioned certainly I think are among their best. Since the late 80s I've liked the odd song but that's about it. You have to give them credit for trying different styles and things but I'm not convinced they carried most of them off too brilliantly. I think their best style is straightforward melodic rock with The Edge doing his quick fire maching gun rhythms.
Can't stand the dire 1980s and so I'm not exactly well disposed to like U2, but, you know, I can think of a lot worse.That said, if U2s first record came out in Ireland in, I think, 1979, have they yet (quite apart from BBC sessions, pantomimes, Xmas flexis, films, television appearances etc.) actually recorded more songs than the Beatles did between 1962-1969.I'd guess not.
