The point IS, that Bono says all kinds of shit.
I just showed you what he said previously.
It's only been a year and it's already slipping down his "list".
From 'might just be out best', to already behind JT and Achtung, it's fucking painfully obvious.

When he has even more persepctive, let's see what he says then. He'll have a different answer when he's recording a different album and distanced from the current creative process.

Here's a fact I'd love for somebody to disprove: Hot Fuss was released in the Spring of 2004.

Therefore, anybody who thinks it's one of the best albums of 2005 is a fucking moron without any sort of informed opinion on the matter. That's what I was trying to say, G.

I CAN prove that somebody who thinks that Hot Fuss is the album of the year is wrong. Because I can prove that he/she doesn't have a fucking time machine.
Good point. Its true many people often forget that that new debut album by that hot new band actually came out over 18 months ago, but at that time radio and MTV would not play it.

I believe songs from HOT FUSS if not HOT FUSS itself was nominated for Grammy's this year, but Grammy criteria states that any album released prior to October 1 2004 would not be eligible for this years Grammy awards.

You gave one quote from a magazine, the rest were not quotes. The next album may very well be better than the previous two but not as good as Achtung and Joshua Tree, at least in Bono's opinion. If he thinks its a good album but further down the list, he'll choose a different way to praise it rather than a ranking which is what he did with POP.

We're inching ever-closer to being so far off-topic that it hurts my soul...

Bono TWO MONTHS AGO on Dismantle...:

"As an album, the whole isn't greater than the sum of its parts, and it fucking annoys me."

I wasn't saying earlier on that Bono thinks the album sucks. I'm just saying that even he doesn't think it works super well as an album proper. That's all. Thus, I think it's a crock of shit that it's nominated for album of the year.

Especially when better produced, written and performed albums have been released by the truckload as far as I see it. Too bad for Zoomer that, if memory serves, Broken Social Scene wasn't released in time for the cut-off...then he would have something to be REALLY fucking pissed off about.

But in that same review, he still considers it better than U2's entire catalog with the exception of Joshua Tree and Achtung. He also states that it is the best album of songs they have ever done, but it just did not fit together well like Joshua Tree and Achtung did.

After winning 17 Grammy awards, 10 of them within the last 5 years, why would it be a shock that U2 would get so many nominations this year for an album that has had far more "critical praise" than most other albums released over the past year?
Because I think Bomb was their weakest effort in a long time. I thought the same about ATYCLB, but at least then I understood the emotional attachment to a band who was seen as making a comeback, and 9/11 also catapulted the album back onto the scene a year after the release.

And because I think there are at least 5 better albums that were released in the last year.

Anyway, who cares?

I'm seriously fearful you're gonna break out a resolutions post any moment now.

Grammy voters are very lazy. They don't bother to look beyond the mainstream when making nominations. Even the artists nominated in the "alternative" category usually are fairly well-known to mainstream audiences, like Beck.

I also can think of at least five albums released this year that are better than HTDAAB.

I don't know that Bono was "ranking" when he said JT, Achtung, and The Bomb in that RS interview. I was reading it like he was rattling them off chronologically. With the comments he made about JT, it doesn't SEEM like he prefers it to AB.

I think I remember Adam saying AB was the best as well, although he implied everything before it was the work of amateurs.

I actually quite enjoy when bands snub awards shows.

Give 'em a few years. They'll either of disappeared up their own asses or be lapping up their adulation, assuming they're still around. History doesn't lie. It always goes one way or the other. So we all should enjoy them now while they're still pure.
