No access to a scanner but I just finished reading the article.
Man, I didn't think anyone could top NME or UNCUT for snide little comments thrown in here and there.
SPIN may have beaten them.

I was going to run out and get it, but I'm debating that now. Snide comments? How so?

OK, maybe it’s not as snippy as I first read it, but there are few things here and there (and knowing how ‘wonderful’ SPIN has treated U2 in the past, that’s probably present in my mind as I read the article)

Here are a few things that stuck out at me:

“…I’m still trying to figure it out while this four-door Maserati backs out of the garage: Is Bono for real, or is Bono full of shit?”

“I had interviewed the Edge earlier that afternoon, and he was also fine (serious and soft-spoken and wearing that stupid skull cap)”

“…explains the Edge in his signature monotone…”

“...I find it hilarious that he actually uses the word forsaken. For the part of 25 years, countless people have referred to Bono as ‘messianic.’ Now he actually talks like Jesus.”

Bono: I hope that doesn’t sound arrogant.
Well it sort of does. But arrogance doesn’t matter when you’re right.

Kind of a backhanded compliment. So in further review, not so snippy, just a little catty here and there.
Snippy does not equal catty.

Also picked up the new BLENDER and they gave the album 4 stars. the yhave a list of U2's 5 star albums:
Joshua Tree (OK)
Achtung Baby (OK)
Best of 1980 - 1990 (ummm...OK)
ATYCLB (ummmm....huh?)

ATYCLB is 5 stars and HTDAAB is 4?
Everybody's entitled to their opinion. That was mine.

Oh...and the new Hall & Oates only got 2 stars...where is the love?

The women of PLEBA have scanned the pics in this article some time ago. People are "afraid" of PLEBA, but it contains boatloads of info!
