Found 'em:

Scatter o' Light: u2 in rolling stone (scans)

Rolling Stone said, "Eno is irked that the band has dropped some of the more contemplative and sonically adventurous songs it developed."

Bono's voice is shot, the tracks are overproduced, etc.

On the other hand, it might have ended up like Passengers...

You guys are crazy. You're totally exaggerating what I've said.

Also, thelaj, you actually like "Passengers" besides "Elvis Ate America", "Miss Sarajevo", or "Your Blue Room"? And I was referring to the Eno-preferred stuff that was left off.

For every critic of the band, there are zealous folks who are unable to accept that bands make mistakes. The exclusion of "Fast Cars" off the US version of HTDAAB was idiotic, for example, as it had the best lyrics and the most innovative work of that album.

That rolling stone article was a great, insightful read. "Tell them their being stupid cunts"

And the bit about Larry pretending to play fill drums in the background. Bless him.

I find it extraoidinarily(sp?) hilarious that everyone is making a big deal over Eno's "joking" comments. They even say in the articles that he said this "jokingly" and people are panicing. For all we know the atmospheric and sonically out there pieces that Eno is talking about could be in the Anton Cjorbin film. Contrary to the widely held view that the band has no sense of humor I find that they and their associates are often fucking with peoples heads and everybody just totally misses it.

Haha, true. After August I have to act like a grown up. You get an extra 3 weeks.
