The problem with Only is that it starts amazingly well and then it goes gettin weaker by the last three-four songs. It's still great anyway.

I was a really big KOL fan until the Only By the Night. Because of the Times would have to be in my top five albums of the 21st century - and then to follow that up with "Use Somebody" and co means U2s status as my favourite band is secure for another few years yet.

I agree completely. There are one or two other songs later in the album that I like, but after the first three songs, they all start running together for me, so I can't even tell you what the names of them are.

I think a lot of people are confusing an album selling well with it being good. They're two totally different things. It can sell a million billion copies and I won't think any differently of it than I do now, which is that it's mediocre at best.

I'm gonna call bullshit on these two. I like every song on this album.

A shame really, cause it's on the back of that awful Use Somebody song.

Why do we persist in having such shite taste in music down under.
And I'll remind everyone that this kid is an idiot.

Sorry I missed this EP. Yeah, I've been a fan since Youth and Young Manhood.
