I thought it looked like the Mirrorball Man's jacket. But his head doesn't look right. It's creepy

Passengers, however? Third best thing U2 have done behind UF and JT. Incredible atmospheres.


Great post.
I'd put it behind AB, JT and UF as the fourth best album U2 have done.

Does that mean you haven't heard the dog barking?
Theme from The Swan is so beautiful, great contrast between it and Theme From Let's go Native, you can definitely here that one!

I'm surprised Ito Okashi is coming second while Plot 180 has zero votes.

Your Blue Room, Slug, Always Forever Now, Beach Sequence, One Minute Warning and Theme From Let's Go Native are all quite good. The rest is average at best.

Ito Okashi just really bores me. Makes me sleep...which most of the album does actually, but in a good way! I think maybe it's her voice. I find it too spooky!
No such problems with Corpse tho, oddly enough!

I like her voice a lot actually, but I don't like the music on that one. Corpse I like better, it's in the middle for me.

I guess Plot 180 is everyone's 2nd-least-favorite. What a dubious distinction, it can't even fail right.

As for Ito Okashi, I think Holi's voice perfectly suits the song. Aardvark's right about it being a bit spooky in a way, but I think of that as a good thing. Especially as it leads into the dark One Minute Warning.

Agreed. Ultraviolet and WOWY were the only two good performances in that entire show.
