Honestly, not sure. For the first couple of months, I loved HTDAAB, then the newness wore off and it settled in somewhere in the top half of my album rankings (I think I normally placed it around fourth or fifth?) for 2005. Hearing Miracle Drug and SYCMIOYO live was part of lowering my opinion, since they weren't very good and made me reassess what I thought of the studio versions. Then in early 2006 is when I really started to go off U2 and the whole album's standing with me slipped markedly.

I think Vertigo, Miracle Drug, LAPOE, COBL, Crumbs, and OOTS are all good tracks, anyway.

Native Son and Smile are great songs, but they aren't on the bloody album, so there goes that. As for what made the album ... well, One Step Closer is good, but doesn't compare with the real UF deal. LAPOE would be great if its lyrics didn't make me cringe so much. Crumbs and COBL are good. I'll also firmly maintain AMAAW is one of the album's better songs. Leaves tripe like SYCMIOYO, OOTS, and ABOY for dead.

Yes, it is. Not quite so much when somebody starts a poll so the half of the forum that doesn't like you can point and laugh.

yeah, i agree. that to me kinda crosses the line from poking fun at yourself and making fun of someone.

Tim Tams for the win.

Or you could order in Squiggles.

I think OOTS' only problem, like LAPOE, is its lyrical failure. But that plagues most of recent U2 songs.

I think if I was in control:

- Instead of releasing Electrical Storm in 2002, they release SYCMIOYO as "Tough" in memory of Bob Hewson.
- The album is called "Crumbs from Your Table."

1. City of Blinding Lights
2. Native Son
3. All Because of You
4. Love and Peace or Else
5. Crumbs from Your Table
6. Electrical Storm
7. Fast Cars
8. A Man and a Woman
9. Miracle Drug
10. Original of the Species
11. Smile

Are You Gonna Wait Forever?, Neon Lights, One Step Closer, and Yahweh become B-sides.
