That's a fairly comfortable margin....

And jokes about Bono's hyperbole are fun.

You're clearly one of the old-school fans who just don't get the irony and all that 90s stuff
No, actually, I pretty much do. Sure, I wouldn't get Passengers, but then U2's reputation from the eighties would be intact. That would be the ultimate collection of music to leave to the world, untarnished by anything. No Zoo TV, no Miami, no ATYCLB, no HTDAAB, no ten minute One speeches ...

Though I like Zoo TV, I just got hell of good goosebumps reading this.

Shame on the Hawks for letting the Dees get within 110.

I'm sure you know what their reputation was like post R&H... the world wasn't glorying in the Lovetown tour, it was laughing at the too-serious, self-righteous, self-important pompous rock stars who dared to compare themselves to the Beatles and BB King and Elvis and all that, and do so in a dirty great big hyped up Hollywood movie, at that. Not to mention the ten-minute SBS speeches...


Yeah, I just need to learn to shut up.

I think it's safe to say that people hated U2 since the beginning.

It's just that we wish One never happened.

At the time, yes. But 10 years down the track, who's to say that the general opinion wouldn't have been revised? That's happened to plenty of bands - albums and even entire careers slagged off at the time, but later on embraced and held in high regard.

And Australia and New Zealand were glorying in the Lovetown Tour! Fuck what the European and American media said! This part of the world knew a good thing when it heard it ...

Fair enough.
I just don't want to imagine a world without Wake Up Dead Man.

Or Melb I and II...

America paid for what its media said, by not getting Lovetown

(Not that it did my ten/eleven-year-old self any good that Australia got it...)
