Well, at least we're getting an album in less than 4 years.

I never really got fussed with song titles either way. Long ones are sort of annoying but whatever.

Yeah, but "Love is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way"?

Is there a more "on-the-nose" sentiment that has come out of Bono's mouth than that?

At this point, I wouldn't be surprised by Stop (The Poverty) in the slightest, except that it's too short a title.

It's hard to believe the same man that wrote:

Carnival
The wheels fly and the colors spin
Through alcohol
Red wine that punctures the skin
Face to face
In a dry and water less place


can say "Love is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way" and not want to punch himself.

Head full o' honey

The transition from Lemon and Mofo to Stand Up Comedy happened a long time ago and I've made peace with that somewhat.

Just wish he would try harder than to omit words altogether to make already bland lines fit the rhythm. I won't be able to listen to Best Thing's chorus without cringing.

Joshua Tree has some long titles and that worked out. I guess people forget about that.

It's not that I want every song to be an introspective, deep lyrically rich song. I like the Best Thing's chorus a lot, but that's because it is just being fun.

Stand Up Comedy is a completely different beast. You can't take yourself that seriously when your lyrics are that fucking stupid. "Love is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way" has zero subtly.

Album cuts have always been my favorite U2 songs so hopefully they shoveled out the shit with the songs they've put out so far from SOE and we're still in for the goods.

Bono recited the lyrics to The Blackout on one of the radio shows today and I noticed he left out the Ned and Fred stuff as he went. Selective self-censorship.
