Although I like it more than I did (it was my least favourite U2 song for years), IGWSHA is still fairly boring, and deserves to go now. How was it chosen as a single ahead of Mofo, Do you Feel Loved or Gone is beyond me.

Since Pop sounds less like a U2 record than Passengers does, perhaps it should have gotten the express dismissal that Passengers clearly didn't deserve.
I still like Pop but it was the first U2 album I was disappointed by upon 1st listen, to be honest I knew I was in for a let down when I saw the album cover.

I don't see why If God Will Send His Angels is so unpopular. I love that song.

As do I.

Staring at the Sun is bland and Miami was a bad idea. Otherwise, I adore this album.

One word to describe if God will send his angels: gorgeous

Pop, as a whole, is one of those albums i can never get tired of listening to (like TUF). There is always something new to find there, unlike atyclb-htdaab.

It's fascinating to hear all the different opinions of these songs. It really is a strong album. Miami for me, WUDM is next. IGWSHA and Velvet Dress are both great songs, and don't deserve to go yet.

The lyrics of If God ... are atrocious (while the superb quality of the lyrics is the saving grace of POP), but musically it annoys me even more.
At least Miami has some interesting bits & pieces.

I hope MOFO, Wake Up Dead Man and Discothèque will go through.
Most of the rest is just bland.

No, it's not.
I would rather memorize all the lyrics to Bomb (probably their weakest album lyrically) than being forced to read the lyrics of If God ... once.
They are embarrassing, even compared to other (relative) Bono clunkers.

Come on man, how can you dislike the lyrics to this song? I believe it was the first hints of Bono's "phone call from God" thing...

God has got his phone off the hook
Babe would he even pick up if he could?


That's brilliant man. The stuff of country songs.

I really don't want to see Miami go this early, but as long as Velvet Dress stays...
