Actually the whole thing is silly if you ask me...

Some people found the white flag waving on the War tour silly. Some found it cool.

Some people felt that U2 imitating 'american music' during JT/RH was silly. Some thought it was cool.

Some people found the whole concept of Achtung/Zoo TV/Zooropa silly. Some thought it was cool.

Some people thought the whole Popmart set and lemon as silly. Some found it cool.

And now some people think stuff like Vertigo & Elevation is silly. While others think they're cool.

I think in the end, it boils down to which incarnation of U2 is your personal favorite.

I think that is why I love them so much. Because they aren´t afraid of looking like a fool sometimes. It´s called being human.

That's why U2 is still up. Because I don't think they meant to have the approve of half the world about their actions. They never did and they never will please everybody, even the fans. I'm glad that U2 never took fans' main advices or wishes along.

In the other hand, I don't think that those things you mentioned are silly. Some think that way because they don't really get into the thing and they don't try to understand why is it that way.

Same here. Each era has its flaws, but each also certainly has its gems. I find more gems with each era than flaws.

In fact, it's part of what makes them good, imo. The fact that Edge is such a perfectionist, and yet he his fret buzz all throughout the intro to Sometimes made it through to the album.....pretty cool.

All things aside...U2 Rules!!!!

Even the things I dislike (like Popmart) I find some solace in. Popmart was not a failure, it started out a little rough and got better as it rolled on. I agree that the Mexico City show is excellent...even though I was at the Vegas shows, the two shows I saw in Oakland in June of '97 kicked ass.

I still prefer Zoo TV to Popmart, and that said Elevation to Popmart, but it's still all good.

These should be written on a stone tablet and carried down a large mountain for all to read.
