Ahh, the moon. In moments such as these, I'm reminded of the old Buddhist proverb: "When the finger points at the moon, the foolish man looks at the finger.” According to this reasoning (and to Google), the saying "speaks to the importance of continuing to investigate the weighty issues, to not get bogged down in dissecting the modes of expression, the fine points of rhetoric..."

I'm not negative, I just think that I fall in line with those who still see the 'otherworldly' potential in U2, and know how that potential has been unrealized and dulled by overt calculation over the last little while.

Hearing Larry's drumming on Magnificent gives me much hope.

Oh shit, just saw a commercial for Get On Your Boots available at Best Buy. The band rocking out on TV again. Gave me quite a charge.
I'll have whiplash because of that.

I have never been negative towards a U2 album, I don't really expect anything, I 'm just so darn excited..I go into it thinking YAY!! new U2..I don't have any expectations for it being the best thing ever..or the worst..I'm just neutral...and so far in the 15 years I have liked U2 they have never disappointed me.

FFS. It was a joke. It's pretty clear that my overarching point was that it's perfectly natural for people to disagree with one another, and that their contrary opinion may occasionally involve negativity on their part.

I actually thought your point was kind of on the mark.

You mean we shouldn't make snap judgements on entire songs based on 30-second clips? Be SERIOUS, PowerSurge.

I feel sorry for U2, it's like whenever they do something like the Grammy's they get dissed by both the media and some fans even, and some of it IMO is rightfully so. Critisism is fine but I think some of the blame has to do with U2 themselves. They never had to play the Grammy's this year when no one knows the lyrics of their new song. The sad part is I see a band that is going forward in a great musical sense for the 21st century but the world doesn't want to accept it YET, because they nevet promotioned it enough or right first. I know it sounds weird but I think their management is not doing things right like they used to. I'm talking about McGuiness. There's a thing called over exposure does he not know that?
