And speaking of it live, Bono - quit it with the over-obvious hand gestures.
UGH! The Hand gestures!

Fuck yeah. God, this song is so well-written.

Do any of you guys agree with my assessment of "Ultra Violet" / "Acrobat"?

Oh, and fuck you, "Fix You." If you were a person, I wish you were dead.

Paused it to shut the lights off and get my epiphany candle of Truth.

God, I love this song.

And the only song we actually get to know the lyrics of

God I can't wait for this remaster...they better not fuck this up.

The vocals on this song are so beyond brilliant

ASOH is a fucking miracle of a song. Been listening to it since the day UF was released and I bought it on cassette. Were any of you even born then? I'm old. Fuck. But ASOH is timeless.

Whether or not it happened on purpose, that's the feeling I get when I listen to those two songs

And I think I have NEVER had the displeasure of hearing that song, honestly.

UF REALLY needs a remaster.

But so does the vast majority of U2's catalogue.

Ah, cool. I knew I'd sent it out before - glad you've heard it.

Time for Pride. I know I rant about it live all the time, but I have always, always loved the studio version. Part of why I want it dropped from the live set so badly is because of how much I love the studio version. Edge's guitar just rings so beautifully cleanly, and it has almost never sounded so pristine live (despite the fact there ARE a couple of live performances out there where they do get it right).
