Thoughts on the U2 single...?
    #3254356 - 10/20/04 01:54 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)


Grungy guitar.
Old school garage beat.
Bono going 'woah woah woah' a lot.

Is it just me, or have U2 lost their sound again?
I mean if they wanna explore, that's cool and all.
But it seems like we've heard enough of this in the last three years.

What do you guys think?

what's with neocons and the word 'ilk'?

I think most of the time, U2's first single is not representative of the album that follows.

I can definately hear Steve Lillywhite's Contribution. Very sparse, traditionally distorted/muted sound.

I like the sound, but I don't love the song. It sounds like they are returning to their punk roots.

That could be magic.

One thing's for sure, I know U2 better than to judge their albums on their singles. U2's best songs are rarely radio friendly... unlike... say... The Cure.

U2's best when they are offending their fringe fans.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein
