After 16 pages, they can both go to hell.

Blasphemy!!! Atyclb beamed U2 into a stratosphere few bands ever see. It cemented their greatness in my opinion.

Stratosphere? I seem to remember Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby sold more. ATYCLB is one of U2 lesser albums in my view.

Hopefully on their next album, Radiohead will come back with some good ROCK music.

Hear's hoping....

Yes, you would remember those details, being financeguy and all!

Personally, Achtung is my fav, but ATYCLB was an amazing album because it solidified U2's brilliance at bringing a whole new audience to their music. I will defend it to the bitter end of time!!....must breath....*good thoughts, good thoughts*....

Anyway, we're getting away from the point:

COLDPLAY = FAKE PLASTIC TREES

oh gross...

didn't you hear there there, 2+2=5 and go to sleep from the last album?

that's about as straight forward rock as it gets.

i have faith in them that whatever they'll do, they do it because they really want to.

it's nice they don't appear to be quite as concerned about sales as other bands...

what exactly did atyclb prove? it was an album that benefited from events that happened in the world around it.

how and why, i have no idea, but the media took it that way and ran with it, shoving it down everyone's throats in the meantime.

this album will be looked back on as being a very insignificant album in terms of music, and will only be noted at all because it was U2 who put it together. without that name tagged with it, that album would have tanked.

RADIOHEAD ARE GENIUSES!!!

I like Coldplay a lot, but they're different. When Coldplay makes songs like True Love Waits , Knives Out ,
Life in a Glass House , The Bends , There There , Paranoid Android ... and not have 2 similar songs, then they'll be geniuses.

Radiohead could record 45 minutes straight feedback and their fans would defend it as creative and innovative.

I want to hear more of Bends or OK Computer from them. Those were their only 2 good albums through and through. Very good stuff!! Don't bury 1 or 2 good songs amongst a pile of doodie and expect me to follow like the other sheep.

I feel a disturbance in the force...
Much anger towards this album have you

I don't know what to say, except this album brought me closer to U2 since Achtung. It's full of beauty and soul, stripped down to the essentials of great songwriting.

I think you're right, in that it did benefit from world events a year after its release in 2000. But this wasn't contrived by U2...9/11 came after the album. In a startling way, I think the band captured something that was in the air globally. It was an accurate snapshot in time. That's why it resonated, in my opinion.

And don't blame the media...that's just tired. Both my parents work in the media, and as much as I try to blame them for all the disasters in this world, and in my own, it usually doesn't get me very far .

ATYCLB is great because it's U2 throwing everything up in the air and building from what's settled. It's one of the key corerstones in their career.

(Plus Bono wore an awesome Canadian -made leather jacket on the tour...that was just wayyy cool.)
