Originally posted by Pauln:2/5......I listened to it quiet a bit when it came out but haven’t for over 3 months. It didn’t stick. It doesn’t have any depth for me, maybe I’ll come back to it again. I still feel this sounds like a bono solo album and all great u2 albums don’t sound like that! Some parts of the album are cringy, first track, best thing, Get out, American soul, summer, that “Nooo” bit in Red flag day. Only listen to little things and Lights strings version. The Edge isn’t really at the forefront on this album which is a big part of my lack of interest in it.
They’ve tried too hard to be contemporary and it’s a mistake in my view.

somehow better than I expected (or feared). So, so happy.
mature, subdued and powerfull.
loving U2 to bits right now!
