1) Slagging it, "why would you touch most of your monuments?" and change everything that made them great and what we love about it? Also, it doesn't sound like U2, but as a Bono/Edge project, which exposes their weaknesses. Also, most of it is boring and uninspired
2) it's a courageous and inspiring move to face your biggest songs and try to create a different perspective. not every song works, but there are some great attempts on the album.
