I think the interviewer throwing his opinion of the tracks would have distracted from the interview in general. Plus, I don't know if he heard it all in the final tracklisting order which, as we know, can alter yuor opinion of things greatly.

Dark in places, like others have said, but hey, that's the world we live in at the moment. IMHO, that bodes well for the album.

Thank you philod!!!

I like it when articles about the band talk about how they are as people. It makes for a more interesting listen to the music.

Bono appears to be working through some heavy shit. He's done and seen a lot that we can't fathom, and as he's said, he's had to deal with some pretty awful people to further his cause.

I did take a perverse glee in this quote.

thanks Philod. I am really intrigued by this album, possibly more so than any other they've produced.

thanks a million, philod, for actually typing the entire article out for us. you rock!

i have not been this excited about a new u2 release since--if you can believe--the joshua tree. i think it's gonna blow our minds. actually, my mind is already blown just from reading this article.

my favourite line, from bono, of course:
