Three of us.

I like UC because of Edge's guitar work. This big sound is what is sadly lacking from SOI, most of which sounds empty and flimsy in comparison. Bono's weak vocals thesedays need a big sound behind them IMO. I often find his voice hard to bear whenever he is isolated by a lack of a soundscape.

I love the last minute or so of Unknown Caller more than anything on SOI.

Bit of "where are they now" rock trivia: Pete sold the lyrics to Coldplay's Chris Martin, and they ended up being featured on various songs:

Quote:
‘I swam across/I jumped across for you/Oh what a thing to do/‘Cause you were all yellow’, “Yellow”, Parachutes.

‘Maybe I’m in the black, maybe I’m on my knees/Maybe I’m in the gap between the two trapezes’, “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall”, Mylo Xyloto.

‘Like Moses had power over sea/So you’ve got power over me’, “Moses”, Live 2003

‘You cut me down a tree/And brought it back to me/And that’s what made me see/Where I was going wrong’, “Swallowed in the Sea”, X&Y.
Bono tried to reclaim his "Yellow" lyrics during his performance at 2011's Glastonbury festival.

Coldplay went on to sell 90 million records worldwide and became known as the "new U2".

Pete the Chop is living a life of relative luxury in his villa in Argentina, surrounded by the children of fled Nazis. He has one child, Paul, a Libra born in October.

The initial OMGz new UTewZ!!! reaction to new material wore off​ quicker than any other album with No Line, and I recall it as the first U2 album I had to convince myself that I liked it.

There are some gems there, but overall it was an album that missed it's point, and the first sign that they were losing some of their sack when it came to taking bold risks with their direction.

Yes, many would say that atyclb and htdaab were those signs, but those albums were what they set out to be. No Line set out to be one thing and ended up being something entirely different out of fear that it wouldn't be accepted. That was new from this band.

This is hyperbole right? I mean, you didn't actually say this did you?

Oh this topic again.

Yes, MOS could have been something to lead off with.

I took a stab at a radio friendly edit back then for fun:

Even at almost 5 min it's way too long for radio, but there's so much goodness it that song it was hard to figure out what to yank. The ATM machine lyrics were a pretty obvious choice tho lol

Listening back to it now some of the chops are a little clunky, but I literally did it in under 10 min on a shitty computer as I recall. Maybe I should do it again armed with the tricks I've learned since then

They could have done something like this. Precedent: New Year's Day

I honestly think that this album is so good which is why it's my favorite, but I don't get why there is why so much hate for I'll go crazy and get on your boots.

Boots is a good song on its own.

Crazy is like that person who does something so heinous that you say to yourself "his/her parents really should have used protection."
