a lot of the arguments in this thread seem to be along the lines of "atyclb isn't rock because it sounds too "poppy."

ok then... i guess the beatles and elvis weren't rock and roll either then, by that theory.

penny lane and piggies really "rock out"


please...

Bingo! I guess Bowie, The Stones, and REM aren't rock either.

Of course the Stones aren't rock(s). They're stones!

Well Marty, I suppose someone had to make that comment!

I love ATYCLB....

So typically contemporary, yet so brave and meaningful

My only problem with ATYCLB is Bono's voice, he sounds like he is trying to hard on some songs,
such as New York, In a little while and elevation(album version).

But if there were any questions about a possible decline in Bono's vocal abilities from his voice on ATYCLB, they were cancelled out by his supreme vocal performance on the following elevation your.

Beautiful Day is a u2 classic and a rock n roll classic. In the same class as universally regarded u2 classics such as pride, streets and one.

Beautiful Album...love it to pieces, especially beautful day walk on kite wild honey when i look at the world peace on earth and for aussies only, ground beneath her feet

Depsite its brilliance, there is just one thing i want u2 to avoid on their next album, churning out an ATYCLB clone.........

You gotta love an album for what it is not for what it could have been or what it isn't.

I love ATYCLB! It' not their best album ever but it's got some great songs and riffs. Kite, Stuck In A Moment, Walk On, Elevation, Beautiful Day are all pretty good.

I still have a problem about singing "It's a beautiful day!" but I love that riff.

I think Stuck In A Moment is one of U2’s best songs ever, don't know how can someone say Edge is not good in this record. Listen to this song live and you'll see how rich it is. It may be simple but it's still good.

Elevation is a great rocker, I love to watch the SNL performance where Larry at a certain moment, closer to the end, just goes trashy at the drums, he does that two times and I love it. That solo Edge plays is very Edge-like, melodic, aggressive (I love the distortion he has for this sing, really metallic) but at the same time very simple. There's nothing wrong with a song having simple power chords or whatever, it doesn’t have to be full with shit to be great (that doesn’t mean that a song full of riffs, two solos or with different dynamics is bad or that it is overrated just cause it's got a lot of stuff on it. Master Of Puppets is a great example of a big song where every moment and extra riffs is as important or as good as the rest).

Kite, Walk On, Peace On Earth are also pretty strong and I like New York a lot. Specially Edge's solo that he does live. I didn’t liked In A Little While or Wild Honey’s melodies, they were too sweet but I enjoy them more now.

I think this album was supposed to be more light with a more laid back attitude and be more personal and it succeeded on that, it was not supposed to be anything else. Personally I prefer more aggressive and angry songs and lyrics but music, like life, is made of all kinds of feelings and moments and this album captures some. I think we'll have the more aggressive stuff on the next one but I just hope that the lyrics are more like AB and Pop.

I appreciate the harder side of Rock (see AC/DC, Gn'R, Rage), I also enjoy the popper side of Rock (see the Beatles, Fleetwood Mac) and I think that U2 fall within both of thoses categories from album to album and song to song. U2 are truly one of the few bands that are constantly updating and changing their sound. So fans will find their taste changing from album to album. I think.
