Most music journalists are no more "academic" than most of us.
That is, with regard to having particular insight into a piece of music.
Maybe they can write and articulate it better (that's arguable) but that doesn't give their opinions any more weight than anyone else on this forum or out in the street.

Talking about music is almost entirely subjective opinion.
You don't have to justify anything if you don't want to.
Most people around here don't.

Just be your own "source".

P.S. I think you're "taking the piss" anyways.

Bono's voice has vastly improved since that long break in 2006 between the South America and Australia legs. I noticed almost immediately when watching Sydney clips on YouTube. The album is studio proof of the improvement of his voice. The kermit/opera voice is still around because it helps Bono control his high notes, even though I imagine it gives him a dry throat (watch how he is hitting the water bottles after he uses that voice).

The falsetto is improved even though it is seriously lacking when we are comparing to ZooTV (Satellite of Love is a great falsetto performance). I've noticed that the falsetto used in With or Without You is becoming a one continuity, and not fragmented.

Overall, his voice is back. I would say it's Bono almost at his peak...considering age, of course.

And what academic source can you cite that supports your previously stated views Jeff Buckley. There is a big difference between showing off and immersing yourself in your performance.

Yes but some guy who uses the name Redrum who calls himself a producer on some random forum is not a source.

I can go sign up on a producers forum call myself babyface but it doesn't make me a producer, nor does it make anymore knowledgeable...
