For me, yes. Those lyrics are so cringe-inducing I simply can't listen to the song.

I would equate them to the "romantic" scenes in Attack of the Clones.

Sith is a better example, I think. That's a really decent movie with some real cheesy shit dragging it down.

I don't think Attack of the Clones was ever going to be good.

I prefer LD's comparison more because I actually like Clones, but re: LM's suggestion, would that make the "baby baby baby/I know I'm not alone" part of Cock Crazy the "No, I'm so in love with you!" of No Net?

It seems odd to act like a song is worthless when there's only one questionable element. By comparison, there are a lot more issues to be found in Stand Up Referee and Cock Crazy, which have a good number of things that bother me lyrically, melodically, etc.
That chorus is such a focus of the song. Those verses are kind of cool, with that Talk Show Host guitar sound and pretty good lyrics. But they make that chorus a focal point and it's one of the worst things they've ever done.

That solo is average at best. Edge mailed in NLOTH.

I always liked Crazy Tonight. I actually don't hate any of the songs on NLOTH (though Magnificent is definitely my least favourite). Not sure I'll ever listen to it full again though.

That Unknown Caller chorus is godawful though.

True. And it's a shame, because Bono showed a very strong improvement from ATYCLB and Bomb, which are his worst albums both lyrically and vocally.

You're very bold with your opinions.

But I'd go and say that ATYCLB shows some of Bono's best and worst lyrics.

Time to see if Mylo can live up to its mephitic reputation.

I've been visiting internet forums for a very long time now and have found the repercussions of bold opinions are pretty small. In fact, they stir more interesting debate most of the time than "well, I dunno...I think Bono was a little off his game there...I'm sorry. "

It lives up to its...shit reputation.

I think that the "in my opinion" is implied around here. At least that's how I feel.

Bad weather woke me up at 5 AM, so I decided to listen to Mylo Xyloto for the 3rd time. Still love it.

- Major Minus is really growing on me. It's just really great.

- Princess of China, Don't Let It Break Your Heart and Charlie Brown are, to me, on my Top 5. Excellent tracks.

You're using qualifiers in a post that states we don't need qualifiers?

Agreed. ATYCLB was by far his worst album vocally, and I'd argue his worst lyrically as well. Bomb was better, but middling because he never really got anywhere great. NLOTH he had much better vocals, with inconsistent lyrics.

ATYCLB just sucks. Fuck that album.
