I really don't know how MOS and UV are still here, especially when something as good as HMTMKMKM is coming under threat.

Ok, I can get on the MOS train here. It's between that and mofo, and if I can help save HMTMKMKM, it's a bonus.

I think Edge is the main reason why I find No Line on the Horizon to be ultimately underwhelming. His work on that album seems so uninspiring and dull. Moment of Surrender is another example of him just not living up to my expectations. The song begs for some great guitar playing and it just never delivers. That slide solo is almost as boring as the one in Magnificent.

Light years away from the awesomeness that is his performance in Holy Rusted Metal Batman.

Beaut Day departs... way too early.

Looks like I need to save Moment of Surrender. Horrendous results here.

He phoned it in. Many ppl like the Unknown Caller solo and i think it starts well but by the middle of it he's back phoning it in. My fave Edge moment on this record is Cedars.

Horrendous comments as well. So much tearing down of great stuff. I guess that tone excites. Hence the tourney being set up in the negative.

As it should be.

Moment of Surrender is a more inspired track than HMTMKMKM, which I very much enjoy but wouldn't consider top 10 for this excellent era. MOS is one of those rare songs that always stops me in my tracks and forces me to tune in. Really wonderful track. They need to write more songs the way they did with that one.
