I think ATYCLB would've been better if it had more songs like In A Little While and Wild Honey, if they'd really gone for the pop album.
I'm glad there aren't, then it would've been a contender with Bomb for worst album.

I'll just voice my support for Wild Honey and In A Little While (and Stuck In A Moment, for that matter).

Great songs and I'm very happy they are a part of U2's catalog.

Love, not hate :P

What I've never really understood, much as I actually don't mind Wild Honey, is how it made the album ahead of Summer Rain and Flower Child. Of the three, it's obviously the weakest.

Why don't you mention that to Julie Taymor...I'd sure she'd be happy to put another U2 song into one of her productions.

Replacing Peace on Earth and Grace with those two songs (and instead closing with Walk On or possibly Stuck) would have gone a long way towards making ATYCLB the pop/soul album they described in interviews. I don't know how the album became such a bummer with Summer Rain, Flower Child, Levitate and Love You Like Mad floating around.
