It amuses me that although U2 have so many resources at their disposal, they can't seem to find anybody who has a fucking clue about how to mix an album.

I finished Khan's list, and I rank it very equal to PFan's. I'm listening to Bono212's now. And I do not like the first song.

You wouldn't be impressed even with punk rock from Omicron Theta Seventy Three, Axver?

It's not that: they're just naive. They think the albums sound good.

Next time, I should try to make the heaviest playlist I possibly can. Would love to see how people respond to Horde and Wolves In The Throne Room.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks this. Oddly, I think the best mixing I've heard on U2 songs 90s+ might be on Pop.

I want post-punk from October!

No, I do believe they actually have the ability to still make the amazing music that I love. The problem is that they don't have the mentality or passion to do it.

Maybe they will surprise me. I hope they do.

I would say the 80s albums sound pretty good.

I think I'll do the same thing and make the most fucked-up and obscure playlist possible in DI5.

They all do, yes. Every 80s album by U2 is a pretty good album. Except RAH, but for different reasons than mixing and song quality.
