Bono's got the crazy eyes in that one. It freaks me out a bit.

I had never seen that, and now will try my best to forget that I've seen it.

You probably would have complained about the outro of Hey Jude back in 1968.
Your definition of "transcendent" must be pretty damn liberal. I'm all for longer songs - hell, one of my all-time favorite tracks is a 32-minute vamp from Miles Davis - but I do not feel that Be Mine justifies its length. And I also hope that you are not comparing Be Mine to Hey Jude in a serious context.

I'm not a big fan of Be Mine. It's nice, but .... transcendent? That seems a bit extreme.

I find the guitar work soars.

It's my favorite song on the album next to Undertow.

Also, I'm in good company:

Continuing my foray through the later albums, I listened to Around the Sun all the way through tonight for the first time in perhaps five years...and now I remember why I had shelved it for so long. I think that they could have condensed it into a single with Leaving New York on the a-side and Electron Blue on the b-side and not have sacrificed much in the process.

That said, having Around the Sun as context makes Accelerate sound that much more impressive.

this. i'm going back to not watching stuff like that.



i'm a big fan of be mine. i can see the creepy, possessive vibe that lyrically stipe mentioned in interviews and such, and for some reason it sits really well with me when matched up with the guitar (transcendent may not be my choice in adjective simply because i'd really never call anything transcendent) which i love. it's simple, yet completely absorbing and actually while thinking to try to come up with a way to describe it that is my own and not laz's, i'm pretty sure i actually just agree with him on this one. not much a ran of radiohead's attempt to replicate it, though.

Please don't say that, Bloodflowers is a masterpiece and "The Cure" isn't bad. Just the last one is mehhh I agree.....

Some say Cure died in 82 already, some say 85, some 92..... I say they haven't yet. They still play more than 3 hours live with 45 different songs from 13 different albums. Some other bands could get inspired by The Cure about that....

Just finished my Warner Bros. years marathon, and now I have three main thoughts:

1. Country Feedback is a bloody masterpiece
2. Accelerate is one of my favorite albums from them - perhaps my favorite from that era
3. Collapse into Now is a remarkably consistent record

Overall, I think that they went out on a very high note. Even Blue strikes me as oddly reminiscent of their entire career.
