As for the songs to keep, replace Miracle Drug with Crumbs and I'll agree.
Adam said in U2 by U2 (no I haven't memorised the damn thing, i just open random pages and read for a while and I remembered this) that COBL was a song that they were going to put on Pop, but they ran out of room or something and a few of the others' demos began during the Pop sessions.

Newborn baby's head? Pissweak solo? Nah, I can do without Miracle Drug, even if it does have an Edge verse.

Yeah, I was aware that COBL, musically, is from the Pop sessions. Bet it had better lyrics then too, rather than what we got inspired by playing New York post-11 September 2001.

I like it better than Bono's whining on Crumbs. That song makes me want to bash my head into a wall repeatedly.

WTF happened between 1997 and 2000? Why did they suddenly start to suck?

I should add a sentiment similar to this somewhere in my profile.

Yeah but they started over-producing stuff in the more recent years.
So they crapped it up as time went by.

Too few Yanks bought Pop.

They also did a shithouse job producing Achtung. See: Zoo Station, UTEOTW, So Cruel ...

Ugh, right.
I like Zoo Station, but I think it could be better than what it is. UTEOTW is a lot better live. And So Cruel is okay.

Eno And Lanois had their moment of brilliance with TUF and JT. Hate to quote the bass player again, but his favourites are TUF, JT, and Achtung. So there's that.

On the flipside, to bring up an argument Bonnie was talking about a week ago or so, if they'd gone out with that bang, Adam wouldn't be around to say that those are his favourites.

I dunno. Bottom line: If it's craptastic, I won't be surprised, but I'm not going to get my hopes up that there's gonna be another "Bad" or Streets on the new one.

The guitar just VANISHES in Zoo Station's verses. It's inaudible. What a pisspoor job.
