I love how they purposely turned everything upside down and made it sound so raw, so punchy, and so in your face after The Joshua Tree and Rattle & Hum. It was U2 saying, I don't give a fuck if you think this sounds like shit, this is what we're doing - get over it.

I sure hope they get that feeling again, because another statement like that is needed from them now unless they want to became a parody of themselves.
I think they had the right attitude and the right songs ... just poor execution in the studio setting. Zoo TV's performances, though ... just wow. Awesome.

My favorite U2 disc is the b-sides disc from Best of 1980-90.

I disagree. The execution was perfect for what they wanted to do.

Although I agree about the tour. Still one of the best shows I have ever seen.

Leave it to you to ignore all I've been saying all night and to nitpick that one part. God, you're the fucking worst. Just go back to your little running away tirade of "I'm too good for the Internet 'cause I make TV happen" and leave us all alone.

Fuck.

Of course you disagree. Everyone but Axver and THE AMENDMENT disagrees.

I'll take the JT tour show I saw over anything else, but, Zoo TV was pretty freaking amazing, at least to me. Phanan, I saw one show at Yankee Stadium, it was awesome overload for me.

I bought AB when I was 12 for $20 at a local record store. Now, keeping this in mind, can you imagine what I was thinking when hearing songs like Acrobat, Love Is Blindness, and Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses for the first time? I had no idea what to do. At the time, I held onto The Fly and Mysterious Ways because they did (and still do) kick ass. I played that record forever, and then one day, while on the internet, I found out how to download bootlegs.

Basically, the album got fucked over by bad timing. I'm completely numb to much of it now because I played it so much.

ElMel has criticized some of it, too, for the record.

Not that you'll care. You're all spin, no substance. Not even Powerjuice could save your weak ass arguments. Douche.

Like I'm gonna go back and read your nonsense? What might you have said "David Bowie is great and so is Chase Utley and I hate Andy Reid and my Mom is pissed at me and someone send me some music and I have no idea how to fucking drive a car"?
