You even missed the epic setlist party arguments in late 2005 between timothius and I, re: Wellington vs Auckland. That truly is my best Interference memory.

Odds on, if one of them farts publically in the few weeks before the album gets released there will be 26 different threads dissecting exactly what it means within 5 minutes
- A more "human" sound this time?
- Experimental U2!!!!
- Bono seeking new direction?
- U2's music never smelt so good!

- The mixing on this album sucks this is 2008 people
- Is the 2disc Deluxe better than the 3disc Deluxe?
- Too much about Africa let it go Bono
- I think (song obviously not about Africa) is about Africa!

Oh and let's not forget the threads that you don't even have to click on to realize that they're pointless, because their titles are:

- Beautiful
- I was thinking...
- What a joke!
- Priceless moment
- what does this mean?
- my brother...

I quite honestly don't know which side i'd be on now....probably Wellington



-I heard them rehearsing Bass Trap and Bonos voice have never sounded better





Edit- that grammar balls up was unintentional, but is more Interference-ally correct

No, actually, this will probably be done five times, each with different results:

... hates the new album, OMG I HATE HIM!!!
... loves the new album, U2 INSPIRE NEW GENERATION WOW!
... thinks the new single sounds like the Bee Gees WTF??!!
... thought this was U2's debut - OMG SO OUT OF TOUCH!!!
...'s name is Mittens!

BTW, I think I will marry you both. Does Interference accept polyandrous marriages?

Incidentally, here are my current top 5, which are not in order beyond that

A Sort of Homecoming
Stay
One Tree Hill
Red Hill Mining Town
Heartland

with a nod to Exit, which has recently departed the list for Heartland, and a watch out to the list, because I'm really getting into Bass Trap right now. It would be the first instrumental to crack my "current top 5."

Ever since the PLEBAns decided they want to marry all four of the guys at once, yes.

And anyway, Ian and I are Kiwis. Just as long as we get a sheep each, we're cool.

I may as well share my present top 5 in this wonderfully cyclical conversation

No particular order

Zooropa
Window In The Skies
The Unforgettable Fire
New Year's Day
Stay

Slow Dancing is very, very close to hitting the top 5. Not a bad effort for a song that i'd hardly listened to before a few days ago
