I wish U218 had been more like this...

1. Where The Streets Have No Name
2. I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For
3. With Or Without You
4. Sunday Bloody Sunday
5. New Years Day
6. Pride
7. Desire
8. Beautiful Day
9. Stuck In A Moment
10. Elevation
11. Walk On
12. Vertigo
13. Sometimes
14. All Because Of You
15. City Of Blinding Lights
16. Original Of The Species
17. Saints
18. WITS



They shouldn't have included One or MW!

The 90s was a black mark in U2's history! Nothing from the 90s would remotely sell well. And isn't that the most important thing in music??? Can't believe they included something from the horrible horrible 90s!

Why do you assume U2 feels this way?

Look at the track record. That is what will sell. Every single U2 record or release MUST SELL as much or more than the previous one! Otherwise it should be obliterated from the discography. Granted, Achtung Baby sold well but it is still part of the 90s.

The only albums that matter:

War
UF
JT
RH
AB...
ATYCLB
HTDAAB

You didn't answer the question. You assume U2 looks at the 90's as a stain, yet you have no evidence backing this up, that's my point.

I don't assume. I know the 90s WERE a stain, a bad bad one that must be erased from everyone's memory!

U2 is holy again now. Praise Yahweh.

Not including anything from POP was a crime. Horrible compilation our boys put out.

He's laying the sarcasm down pretty thick.

In retrospect, I wish Gloria and I Will Follow made the album over Stuck, Elevation, with Stay or Miss Sarajevo as a bonus track.

I understand that. That should be obvious by my first post. Hence why I asked him why he thinks U2 thinks this and not himself.

But I'm trying to get him to say why he thinks this, he's stated it several times but never really backs it up. So I'm curious.
