are we talking by edge standards or general standards? I think if its the latter there would be a shortage of what would be classed as solos. But my fave edge type solo is prob from love is blindness live. Its such a brilliant climax and really adds feeling and passion to the song.

You can talk about both if you want - I was thinking Love is Blindness myself, actually! At ZooTV: Sydney, it was unbelievable.

Yup yup yup philly, thats exactly the one! Great minds think alike eh. In my opinion, the only real offering edge could take to the table of great guitar solos is Bullet. the rest are edge moments which arent as complicated as some but sure do add feeling to the songs. Take the slide bit in kite, before the "am a man, am not a child" bit, that oozes feeling for me. if you heard that bit alone u would get the gist of the song.

I'm also a big fan of the ending of Until the End of the World, if you call it a solo (I think it is), it's the second solo in that song, and it's unbelievable. Live, well, I just hope I will hear it live someday.

The BTBS solo on the Chicago DVD surprised me positively. I didn't know Edge was capable of such bluesy playing.

Isn't the thread title an oxymoron of some sort?


All kidding aside, the Fly by a mile. By two miles. By ten miles. Fuck Lovetown Desire, people, a solo is supposed to go somewhere and have a conclusion.

It all begins and ends with The Fly. I love how in the Vertigo version Edge adds some bits from the Lady With the Spinning Head solo into The Fly solo too.

The Fly = most badass song U2 has and ever will do.

To whomever noted the lead on All Along the Watchtower from the Lovetown Tour, I second that, third that, fourth that.........

I've heard that lead a thousand times and it gives me chills everytime. Absolutely incredible!

I thought a solo was just a time for the guitarist to show off.

To me it has to be Love Is Blindness live. It seems that the guitar is crying! Edge can make melancholic sounds so perfectly... It's amazing... I also like Bullet live it's amazing what the man can do!

Desire/All Along The Watchtower from 27 September 1989 and One Tree Hill from 26 December 1989 both for the win.
