Oh wow. Just wow! I don't think I could have written a parody quite as rich as that last one, Annie!

Something like that must've happened. Otherwise he's a shit singer isn't he? Is that what you thought when this single was released back in 2006? I thouht that way for a long time. Not anymore though. I reckon she was being spiteful. What is your explanation for this whole sorry mess?

There's this thing we call the imaginary..and then there's reality. Let us know when you've come back from the former.

This human being certainly can not! God, I miss the 80's.

I like the way Bono's voice has matured. I loved the way he sang in the eighties, too.

Even, when Bono was having vocal chord problems. On ATYCLB. For me, he still had the passion. He "owns" the songs. No one can preform them, the way that he does.

"When I Look At The World" is still one of my favorites. His voice may falter, a bit. I don't mind. The feeling Bono puts into it. Still, captures my attention.

Gvox, how comes you consider IEM'S and mic's to be cheating yet autotune isn't? I gathered you are one person who goes for emotion and pasision and voice rather than technique, however I think the reason why his voice sounds different now is because he is now singing in a higher register. Voices sound different regarding to their register plus as you get older your voice does change. People need IEM'S just so they can hear the band. I read an interview where he was talking about the 2002 Superbowl appearance where he was worried that if his IEM's fall out then he'd be off air. At the 2001 Grammies you notice how he started the song badly and then he took out the IEM'S and continued the rest of the song standing still.

That's absolutely incorrect, it's pretty much impossible not to hear a rock band on stage. Edge's amps are so loud it's not even funny. Singers use IEMs so they can hear THEMSELVES. - and in better proportion to the rest of the instruments, but usually their voice is higher in the mix than the rest of the instruments being fed into their ears. That's why if you take them out, you have to stand in one spot, in front of the stage monitor speaker assigned to your position (or another band member's monitors that has your vocals coming out of them), so you can hear yourself, mostly. They can be frustrating, however, if the feed or the mix in your ears isn't good and so you'll see singers rip them out sometimes.

And where did you ever get the idea that I said it was "cheating" to use IEMs and better mics? They're not cheats, but they usually do contribute to a better technical environment, and the use of IEMs does in fact change the way one sings (mostly for the better). And of course, a better mic is going to make a great singer sound even better, logically.

That makes perfect sense......a singer would have to be able to hear themselves. In relation to the rest of the band. Thanks gvox for the technical info.

Whats intressting here is that the people who praise his voice in the 80s beacuse of the screaming/straining thing make it sound like it is hard to sing like that.

The thing is that he has no problem to sing like that those days, just watch my 360 highlights clip on youtube. The thing is that 360 tour is the first tour ever when he use clean high notes, technique togheter with more raw screaming. Something 80/90s Bono only couls dream about.

Bonos problem now isnt about hittinh high notes, he does that better then ever. Íts his stamina, if he would work out more(running, swimming) he could eaisly hit more high noteS each night. So instead of smking, drinking wine and just talk he could work out more. We shouldnt forget that he has problem with his back, that makes it harder for him to sing. It effects you psychally and fysichally.
This can be a real problem for him on the new leg that starts late this summer, his stamina might be worse now because of all resting because of his injury togheter that he still will feel pain.

IEM'S and mics maketh a good singer does not one make. I've heard him sing on TV and radio without a mic and it doesn't make a huge amount of difference. If you can't sing, then you can't sing. The accoustics within a stadium mean that IEM'S are needed in order to hear yourself properly, whilst in opera houses and small bedrooms they aren't needed. Guitars are very loud so something is needed in order to hear yourself.

This is exactly what happened with Live 8 and One.

This makes zero sense. In fact, if it's possible to make less than zero sense, this may be the case...
