Well, their two Takeaway Shows were really good. "Start a War" around the dinner table and "Ada" in front of a little chapel. Wonderful stuff. I just want the portion of my life I spent watching A Skin, A Night back.

Seriously though, start with Alligator. You'll be hooked from the first second of "Secret Meeting."

Ok, thanks!
I'll be listening to this asap. Probably tomorrow since I'm already downloading a lot of Super Furry Animals stuff here. (u2popmofo won't like this Although, if I like it, I'll buy it. And I'm serious on this.)

U2 overtook Bruce Springsteen as my favorite band/artist back in 1987. They have remained No. 1 for me ever since. Bruce made a strong bid for reclaiming the No. 1 spot for me in recent years, but then Bruce released Working on a Dream and U2 released No Line on the Horizon. Since NLOTH > WOAD, U2 retains the #1 spot.

there seems to be a lot of U2 & Bruce fans and U2 & radiohead fans. I guess U2's music translates well to both RH and bruce??

my good friend whose favorite band is U2 has Bruce as a second favorite. and so do many people on this forum.

and from what ive read, it seems Radiohead is the second most frequently mentioned band on this forum after U2.

Well, Radiohead may be the second most frequently mentioned band in this subforum. But in EYKIW, Coldplay's probably mentioned more.

Radiohead and I have a love-hate relationship. Sometimes I love 'em and sometimes I hate 'em. But then again, my taste isn't on par with the average U2 fan as I dislike Springsteen and R.E.M.

however, i'll go months without listening to them. lots of other music will rise to the top of my playlist for a while. i'll become obsessed with other bands at different points, and i also have a deep love for several other bands as well.

but there's an endurance to my relationship with U2 that no other band can touch. simply, they came along at exactly the right point in my life, and remain, to this day, the only band that (ultimately) matters.

Realistically, my favorite band still producing new music is R.E.M. Easily. They haven't made a single album in their career I dislike (though AtS comes somewhat close), or a single song I truly hate. For my money, they've been the most consistently excellent band I've encountered, and are responsible for my favorite song in the whole wide woooorld.
