Require it? No. But unfortunately, I have that understanding on speed dial.

Songs of Innocence was the first U2 album to come out since I became a fan (around my entry to high school in '98) where I wasn't disappointed with anything about it. No Line On The Horizon was almost that way. I had to stop reading stuff on here because other people's opinions on some of the material really bummed me out (I love Crazy Tonight and California). I can almost always count on social media of some sort or another to bum me out about a release I really enjoy.

I think its mostly because of the acoustic version and their insistence on playing it that way live every night.
The album track isn't too bad, but having the acoustic version forced down our throats soured me on the song overall.

Fez-BB is the best thing on NLOTH for me.




FBB is little more than a b-side, on any other U2 album.

There are tracks on TUF someone would say the same things about. As I said w/r/t Why Don't We Do It In The Road, the song doesn't have to follow verse-chorus-verse formula to be good. F-BB is evocative and has an impressionistic lyric that Bono should be doing more of these days. Some killer guitar sounds on there too, from the icy work on the verses and then that raging buzzing later on.

A real late-period standout for the band in an era of usually playing it too safe.

^Agreed.

And my love for the NLOTH title track is brought up again. It's in my top 12, at least.

And I'd agree wholeheartedly, and name at least 2 b-sides from that era that I'd have preferred they had included, which would save me the skip button.

I will say this for FBB tho, it would totally be at home on TUF. Although I guess I'm stating the rather obvious.

Couldn't disagree more.

Coming immediately after the NLOTH middle 3, it's perhaps never been clearer that the band are torn against themselves, wishing to serve certain artistic impulses while simultaneously being desperate to remain relevant, whatever that means to them.

Is Elvis Presley And America one of the ones you'd skip? 'Cause I think that's great too.

Man I really don't like Fez. Like most of that album. I can give it credit for merely being different from 2000s template U2, except it's completely uninspiring and uninteresting shitty music regardlesss.

I've really warmed up to NLOTH since the end of U2360º, there are some great songs on that album. The only one that I skip every now and then is Cedars.

It just sounds like boring half-baked "experimental" rock music I found on SoundCloud with 100 listens.
