I just get frustrated because they ARE capable of making good songs, they proved that with The Crystal Ballroom and Lucifer's Hands, both of which didn't even make a fucking album, yet American Soul does.

If "Book Of Your Heart" is a decent song, I might have to jump off a cliff.

Crystal ballroom is really good and yet they think it's not in the top 10 for SOI... Baffling.

Can they just release
All my Life already ?

You are clearly upset at that part, so I would suggest doing what I will do (until I have the album and it can flow naturally, as I am told, into American Soul) and edit the song in iTunes to cut off the last 15 seconds.

American Soul is fucking atrocious. The lyrics are fucking awful. The lyrics are literally like a Bono interview with Charlie Rose pasted over the Volcano You & And I Are Rock & Roll riff...it's really, really bad IMO. I liked the other tunes on the album so far but this one sucks.


DISREGARD guys - wrong song thread. Sorry.

They're now fully in Dad Rock mode. Had low expectations for the album but even I didn't think the songs would be this bad.

Judging by these SOE tracks, they'd have pounded the spark out of it and buried the hook by the time the mix was complete.

I think this will be u2's most divisive album. Seems for the most part either people really love the songs or really hate them.

Bill Flanagan reckons this album could be better than AB.

U2 have to stop surrounding themselves with yes men and get Eno and Lanois back on deck.

I think he said best since AB, not better than.

How does that work if they’re castrated?
