Finally, when we went for the take, one string broke and another string broke and he just kept playing harder and harder. And he has such a light touch, ordinarily, he's so gentle. All that left him for a kind of rage. And yet there's not one bum note in there. It's incredible."
- Bono on Edge recording Love Is Blindness

The title for the song 'Shadows and Tall Trees' is taken from William Goldings "Lord Of The Flies", whose 5th chapter bears the same name. The song, and the album, is about boyhood, innocence and struggle, as is Golding's book.
