That's actually a great summation...

Not that I find it entirely true. I think there were very soulful moments in the 90's and very souless moments in the 00's, and vice versa.

But I think it gets at the core of the motivations...

the only thing about the 90-00's complilation was the history mix.

favorite quote:
bono; "there's alot off music you can't play when you have a guy that looks like edge in your band."

larry; "i think i look cool. don't know bout the other 3, but i looked cool. i am cool."

And the 25+ music videos that aren't terrible.

I can barely watch an '80s U2 vid, save I Still Haven't Found..., Pride, Desire, and The Unforgettable Fire (maybe one of the funniest videos ever)

U2 has always been about money and creating music they like. It IS a business and it always has been. They just got to a point in the 90's where they had so much money they could do what they pleased and felt like they wanted to try some new things. They thought they would still be all over the radio and the biggest band at that point. I think they still can and were to a certain degree, but they like being one the biggest bands also. They are human beings. Its easy for us to judge when we are not in the situation or anywhere near the situation. I think they have done a pretty good job though of staying creative even when they became huge in 1987. I dont think there many if any fans that were presented with the same situation would have done much differently. But its easy to sit back and be arm chair artists on the internet and point out what you dont like about what they do.

I liked this era of U2. I experienced it first hand. Its funny, but alot of the people that look back and say how great that was are people that didnt even experience it. I see that with the Zoo TV comments. Yeah, it was great, but it had drawbacks also. I think people get on these nostalgia trips when they didnt experience it because they want to now.
