"The band's desire to bring the whole PopMart extravaganza to this city following the siege, not scaling things back but giving it their all, makes it a favorite - Bono's voice issues included. "You got to give it away(!)""
"Every song is a gem. It reinvented U2 and took them into their best era. I love how it is both flippant and intense, with the title, cover, and even the musical influences masking the dark interior of love gone wrong and hypocrisy exposed."
"When we set out on this record it was Larry who came up with the plan not to have a plan. He put up this idea that wouldn’t it be great just to make music for its own sake, not for the purpose of a live show or on album but just to see what we’re capable of.."
- Bono, September 2008, talking on the upcoming album
