Here comes MW ... the guitar sounds kind of mediocre in the studio.

It makes sense that he'd change it in the wake of his father's death.
Well then, that does answer some questions.

Still not reading that book anytime soon though I still haven't read U2 By U2 *looks at it sitting in the closet accusingly*

I'll agree since I actually saw that one live verses any other one

I can sit here and hope that will change all I want, but if Bono's going to continue to prattle on about Africa, and Love, I don't see that happening.
He writes in different mindsets, I think. Right now, it's the "trying to write the perfect pop song / be like Paul and John" line of thinking, at least that's what it seems like to me. I don't expect him to write the same way he did in the '90s, he'd just be repeating himself, but I would love for there to be less filler and more powerful verse again, you know? They're just too far and in-between for my liking nowadays.

Also, a snippet of Porcupine Tree's This Is No Rehearsal would fucking rock so hard at the end of The Fly. It'd fit perfectly over the band rocking the end out.

This is no rehearsal
Play it back and throw things at the screen
This is no rehearsal
Somebody interpret this for me
This! Is! No! Rehearsal!
PLAY IT BACK AND THROW THINGS AT THE SCREEN!

I'm gonna resist since I haven't heard this album in so long, and I wanna experience it all at once

(plus a personal HATRED of that song. Like Axver's hatred of One level hatred)

The Fly used to be my favorite U2 song. It isn't now by any stretch, but it's a lovely clatter, I must say.

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
6. So Cruel - Just give me some roses and a box of chocolates and shut up/10
7. The Fly - Could Edge be mixed any lower?/10

Mysterious Ways sort of made me the hardcore fan I am today.

Ashley, U2 at the End of the World is a great read. I think I've read it 2-3 times and still love it.

I haven't even opened U2 by U2 and I got it 2 Christmases ago. I'll delve into it when I hit my U2 Peak around September/October.

MW's studio version at least picks up and is quite catchy at the end. Still, it has NOTHING on the live version, and the fact I'm accustomed to the live version makes me feel like it ends far, far too quickly.

Oh god, TTTYAATW. I think I'll go grab a drink if this bores me too much.

Yeah, all thing's must come to an end, even the 90s. I'm just ready for this current radio trend to end. I want something emotionally stirring from them again that's all I really want. I can't really think of anything on the last two albums that got me in such a way.

I've figured it out; the reason Mysterious Ways is so addicting to me is the bass line. That's cracking stuff. Too bad the mixing snuffs it out.
