1. played the album today for the first time.




    and that's pretty much all I can say about it.
    not interested in giving it another run.

Of course they won't and the concerts will be much better with a few hits and some deep cuts thrown in, but it shows how much i dig those songs.
    Truly agree
  4. Yes. Every album I liked at first - still like it today.
    Every album I didn't like, I still don't like them today.

    I gave SOI a second chance yesterday. Nothing changed.


  5. I doubt it.

    I'd love to see what happened if U2 tried to be more structured again.
    Remember deadlines?

    +1 (x100)
  7. Get rid of Lights Of Home, Best Thing, Blackout and American Soul. Get rid of the Kendrick bit on GOOYOW too and of course bump Book Of Your Heart into the actual album.

    Then it would be really, really good as an album imho.
  8. Lights of home strings should start the album.
  9. Summer of Love is my current favorite--I appreciate the melancholy twang of the guitars and the switch in the lyrics...rich in ambiguity....
