Soundcheck: U2 finds what it was looking for - which was mediocrity, apparently. - Gusto - The Buffalo News

That article reads like interference complaints and gripes about the band.

Same arguments read elsewhere.

PS: While not giving a fig about Oscars and stuff like that, I think it's depressing to read U2 aficionados who almost seemed to enjoy that OL lost in order to reiterate their arguments.
I'm of the impression that everyone has the right of like or loathe this U2 era, but the frustration that emerges when these people talk about it, which is distinctive, makes you wonder why they still care.

(my two cents)

It really does get tiring reading the same thing over and over again. Why was this posted?

And U2 aren't ready to be lumped with The Stones or Springsteen yet. Ordinary Love has been doing well on iTunes and even made it into the Hot 100!! Aside from last album, which was [commercially] disappointing, they haven't missed the mark in quite some time. Let's at least wait and see how the singles from the new album come along.

Losing at 2003 Oscars brought them a heavy truck of luck with HTDAAB the year after.

What you meant to say is that it gets tiring reading criticism of your favorite band. Understandable. The same points get repeated because they are poignant and applicable.

A guy writing for the Buffalo News complaining about mediocrity is rather ironic if you ask me...

I read a recent article where a tigress is wandering around India killing villagers, body count of like 10 or so. Once she got the taste of human she decided that was the way of the gun for her, and now they track her and live in fear in their villages and huts.

Didn't Larry once have injections of tiger blood? Or maybe that was Charlie Sheen. I hope he doesn't go around killing village people in India, though they dressed like the village people once.

I think Larry must be the Yellow King
