The Edge saying it doesn't need a solo is just lying to cover up a mistake.
Agreed totally.

Also, the remaster really brings the goods on WOWY, around the "WAAAA-AAA-OOOH" part especially.

yeah. my aunt was all about bands with hot lead singers. i remember her saying michael hutchence of inxs was hotter because bono was married. so i didn't know a thing about the actual band, just the marital status of both singers

she also got into bush in the mid to late 90s, though i never liked them

Wow, I can't imagine hearing Numb on the radio or TV or anything. The video's fucking awesome.

Fastforward to 2004. In the religious fervor of my teen years, I managed to miss out on ATYCLB completely, and have no memory of hearing/seeing the videos for Beautiful Day and Elevation, although they must've got a lot of airplay. By 2004 I'd left most of my religious feelings behind, but when the iPod ad came out, I started getting into Vertigo, and when I finally heard the full version, 'your love is teaching me how to kneel' caught my attention, so I started reading up on the band, and I got really interested in the band's religious background. I liked that they could be religious in their personal lives (and sometimes in their music) but still be rockstars who smoke, drank, swore, and were sexual. It was the kind of thing I wanted to believe it was okay to do.
Back before I was an atheist, the religious side of things was an angle I appreciated too, especially in songs like UTEOTW and WUDM that weren't your usual over-positive bullshit religious fare. It was nice to hear a band writing songs that tackled the deeper and less bright and happy issues in religion, and write it in such a way that you could connect to it in non-religious ways too. Even as an atheist, I still think that's one of U2's best points, that (with the exception of some of their recent crap, like Yahweh) they bring together multiple perspectives rather than alienating them.

Unfortunately, I thought all bands were that good live, and it set a rather high benchmark which few could challenge and meet. My musical history was a lot like all of yours, I think. My mum had the hugest vinyl collection on the planet and she got us into everything with a passive positive approach. Music was always on and we never really gave it much thought. I realised a conscious love for music with U2 and AIWIY, and then Dire Straits, INXS, Icehouse, etc., saw my first concert in '89 (or was it '90??) and realised music is actually a hobby and some people do music the way some people do books or art (or all 3 if you are me). It was this awesome period of naive but exciting discovery. I had no internet, obviously, but discovered music everywhere. A weird neighbour would have a garage sale, so I'd nip over and flick through his collection - picking up a double Clash, Bowie, the Cars Cd's. I'd wander into Cash Converters and pick up Hoodoos for $5. The radio taught me Pink Floyd. Good times everywhere. I wish I could go back to it, to be honest -to erase all knowledge and re-learn and enjoy every step of the learning curve.


Why I am so maudlin and reminiscent is beyond me... I'll shut up now.

I've started to dig Bullet studio again recently. Larry actually performs decently here, for a change.

Still, it has absolutely nothing on the ZooTV version, with Edge's fuckin' rockin' guitar and Bono's sheer anger.
