good band, them.
They should have folded after The Joshua Tree. At least then they'd have a decent back catalogue that could be reflected positively on. Everything after that album is tired, out of touch, overblown and full of miscalculated self importance.
still a good song
Unforgettable Fire is pre Joshua Tree though
joshua tree was...OK, marked the beginning of the rapid decline
Heard it last night, it's crap U2 by numbers.
I was listening to zooropa the other day as a disser mentioned it and i hadn't heard it in years, good record that!
Seems he always was check out this radio interview from 1980
What kind of dickhead refuses to not wear glasses too. I used to like joshua tree when I was younger and didnt know bono was a dick. Dont think I could get through it now.
War is one of the greatest "singles" LPs of the 80s.
they were always touted as some kind of overlooked underdog up until the Pride single. Then it was like U2 are the biggest band ever and everyone should be humbled by them. Never truly bought into them in any kind if way. Always doubted the frontmans sincerity, but yeah, some good tunes early on.
Zooropa is great
POP has its moments
and then ...... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
listened to New Years Day for the first time in a while the other day and that's a TUNE
