Barlow/Gaffney/Flood please.

I also had an idea that it would probably be really cool if Jeff Lynne produced a U2 record, but I think that would have happened already (c. R&H), if ever at all.

I think Jeff Lynne is more of a songwriter's producer. U2 just don't write songs in that way very often. The same reason Rick Rubin didn't work out.

I'd like for U2 to just stick with 1 or 2 producers next time, for cohesion purposes.

I actually think Rick Rubin is the blame for the shift in style for the band.

They’re so focused on crafting a tight pop song, and that’s never been their strength. They’ve had a few successes

But their biggest hits are still so unique compared to the 3 min verse chorus bridge chorus format they’ve been doing since ATYCLB
