Ugh, the mixing of So Cruel is DREADFUL. It's mainly the drums. It's almost watery, like a bad MP3 ... but it sounds like this on the CD!

Plus, the song is just boring anyway, despite having some good lyrics.

I think so. It was the last show of the 4th leg, so I could see them pulling out all of the stops.

Outside, it's America
Yeah, Americaaaa! Where the fuck are you?
United Kingdom! Where the fuck are you?
Fuck you, France!
Fuck you, Germany!

I think I need to hear that!

He hit a lyrical peak in the '90s that I don't think we'll see again.
When Bono changed the lyrics at the end of TFT in Chicago (I didn't throw away the key) I was curious if maybe that meant something.

These days I think he just forgot the lyrics

1. Zoo Station - Cool intro/10
2. Even Better Than The Real Thing - Better live/10
3. One - Cliche-ridden pus/10
4. Until The End Of The World - Outro makes Chris Martin cry/10
5. Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses - Big dumb pop song about horses; where's Cori when we need her?/10

I've always loved So Cruel's drums. It almost makes the song vaguely danceable. Their quality is debatable, however.

Yeah, it starts to build toward the middle but never hits a climax. That may be intentional due to the subject matter, but it still makes for a frustrating listen.

Yeah, my main problem is it's too quiet. You really need to crank the volume to get a good effect.

I'd say Dublin is better than Stockholm. The quality of Dublin is just amazing. Easily one of the best U2 boots out there.

I hated So Cruel the first time I heard it. I thought it was slow and boring and too long. Then I got into it and I really like it. It's simple but nice. Reminds me of relationships I've been in. That song could totally be about me.

8/11/93 sounds wonderful. It's not soundboard, but I prefer it, somehow.

Last show of the 4th leg was Dublin. The one with Bjorn and Benny was Stockholm on the 2nd leg.

That's like one of my favorite boots if it's the one I'm talking about

"When I was all fucked up" ~ Ultraviolet

Stupid Best of 1990-2000 always making me think TFT is the last track on Zooropa. Dirty Day is great, I haven't heard this in so long, and though the ending is a tad repetitive still
