Well, you obviously know everything about people´s tastes and opinions.

Yes, and I don't like them.

Mercy explodes? Really? I don't hear it. Bono's vocal delivery gets more ear-grating in certain sections and Edge plays with a smidgen more vigour, but I would hardly call that an explosion.

Wrong. I do want to hear U2 write songs that don't stick to the same old formula. I also want them to be, you know, good songs. Mercy is average, in my opinion. Average, average, average. The lyrics are rubbish and Bono's vocal delivery leaves a lot to be desired. Edge probably couldn't have written a duller riff if he tried.

I just don't think Mercy is up to much. If you like it, so be it, just don't be snippy with those who don't think the song is the second coming of Christ.

I think if everyone talked to the band members like they say they did during the WITS shoot that U2 would'v ehad to been there for 6 years.
