Heheh ...that's not sayin' much!

In my opinion that is. Like I said earlier. I love my boys, but these past two albums have been kinda weak. Not bad, mind you. And certainly better than most trite shit out there. But as far as their own standards go, I consider them weak.

I think it's sad that all of these U2 FANS are so hard on U2....it makes me sort of understand why non u2 fans are so hard on u2

That being said, I'm proud of the boys, they really proved something tonight, and maybe they'll finally get the reckognition they really deserve.

I know I'll gloat tomorrow

I couldn't be happier for U2.....it was an extraordinary evening for the band, their families and for fans alike. These guys deserved awards for each nomination and I am so happy they won each one of them. This would really be an outstanding opportunity to go out on top and in style but this ban'ds not going anywhere....if anything this will fire them up to get back to recording and touring even more!

I just wish they hadn't cut Larry off at the end.

And what was that comment B-man made about elephant poop? Funny.....maybe referring to a circus atmosphere, the circus having been to Staples Center? Hmmmm.....

By the way, since I was staring at it all night, does anyone know if there's anyway to get a Music Rising shirt similar to Edge's? I know we had patterns for Bono's Africa shirt, but I was wondering if there was something similar for Edge's... I haven't been able to find a decent head-on picture of him in it yet, otherwise I might try to make an outline of it in Illustrator or something.

Thanks guys!

As for the Grammy's, as psyched as I am that they won, I'm already seeing the backlash and it makes me really upset - yeah, I'm an AB/Z/P kiddo, so this is a weak album for me, but still... blah.

I congratulate U2 for winning, but HTDAAB is still a mediocre album. I felt that they won because the competition wasn't that great either. Kanye West is one Outkast-like album away from winning the top honor. Late Registration is a well produced album, but it needed a just little extra flavor.

Tonight's performance of One was a bit contrived as well.

At least U2 will see a rise in the charts, eh? Seems like all the lot of you ever care about is that. No one cares if U2 is not living up to their own standards anymore.

U2 is obviously living up to their own standards with an album that racked up 8 grammy awards. And I think that most albums that do win 8 gammys are typically considered to be a little but more than mediorcre.

And another thing I have to comment on is how immature have U2 fans gotten over the years. I've stopped visiting this forum for a long time because these fans are always saying U2 is better than such and such. True music fans, like the members of U2 are, learn to appreciate all sorts of music. All this talk about gloating to friends and shit---what is that? What are you, twelve? Love the music, ditch the childishness.

Huh..odd. I think it's U2 fans that should be the hardest on U2. It doesn't make us any less of a fan.

Grammys != measurement of quality.

I'm going to have to agree with you here. And this sort of "OMG U2 CAN DO NO WRONG!" that permeates these boards is another reason my visits only come in spurts. It's just as childish as gloating.

Why can't we all just be happy for U2?? Instead everyone who doesn't like bomb has to throw in their side comments about how bad it is. Did pop win 8 grammys? No. Did Zooropa win 8 grammys? No. Just be happy for the band, they are still putting out great music and being recognized for it. At least we can be happy that they beat out Mariah! WOOHOO

You can't honestly say that U2 faces a level of competition that could have prevented them from garnering 8 grammys for this album. Especially when U2 also have the elder-statesmen votes working for them as well.
