It's like this finger-scraping lyric yelling "shame. SHAAAAAME!!!!" in the middle of this song that's all "gee, isn't this world nice?"
Weird, I never thought of it like that. I just took it as more descriptive than critical.

Wild/Innocent/Shuffle, Born to Run, Darkness, and The Rising are all classics, if you ask me. Greetings, The River, Born/USA, Tunnel of Love, Magic ... all damn good in their own right. Nebraska ... I agree with what Mike said, gotta be in the mood. I've avoided Human Touch and Lucky Town, as well as Tom Joad. Haven't gotten to D&D or Seeger. Didn't particularly enjoy Working on a Dream.

That right there is my biggest argument for why U2 will continue to play the big hits no matter what, because, no matter what happens, even Bruce is always going to play BTR or Dancing in the Dark, it's just how it goes.

That's all. Sorry. But, I mean...come on, people!
Oh, all those retarded subjective opinions.

Yeah, well I'm weird and am probably the only one who thinks it's a weird line.

It's really hard for me to see how The Rising is a classic.

I can see why you're making this comparision.
But since Elevation is my favourite song of all time and Dancing In the Dark is really boring to me, it's hard to agree. Also, I think there are Bruce hits that do the job way better than Dancing.


Anyway, I always thought Nebraska was loved by Bruce fans, but I guess I've weird tastes when it comes down to him too.

No one is arguing that U2 should abandon all of their hits.

Not right now, I'm saying in general the fact is that even Bruce does it, that's all

I think most big Bruce fans like Nebraska a lot, or at least they do in my experience. Phanan might know better than I.

ATYCLB is, believe it or not, my least favorite U2 album, so, Elevation is not high on my list. My favorite song from the album is, with ease, When I Look at the World.

You didn't even mention my favorite from that album. Lonesome Day.
