'The Bomb' has re-grown on me!

I loved HTDAAB when it first leaked and when it came out for real, but I would love any U2 record when it's brand new. Anyway, I grew tired of the record and I really didn't listen to it on a regular basis for a pretty good stretch, but recently I've been listening to it more and more and it's re-growing on me, for sure. LAPOE, COBL, AMAAW(this song has been unfairly maligned to a tremendous degree here), Fast Cars(is IS part of the record) are favorites right now, but they're all great. The only one I get bored of more quickly is ABOY, but even that's still really good. Great record.

Current Top 5 U2 Records:

1)Achtung Baby
2)Pop
3)Zooropa
4)The Joshua Tree
5)How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb

I'm ashamed to admit it, but I've never heard Fast Cars. Or Native Son for that matter. Are they worth finding?

I thank you.

Amazing album, but I skip two song: LPOE and ABOY, shit songs...

On the other hand, I think that MD is one of the best songs from U2, it's up there with One.

for me anyway

You did NOT just called LAPOE a 'shit song', did you?

LAPOE ROCKS HARD!! Best rocker on the record. Period.

I'm bacvk on the bandwagon myself...I ingored Vertigo when the entire album came out, and I now realize what a genius song it is. It's got the catchiest hook of any song in the U2 catalogue.

ABOY is just rockin', and makes me put my hand in the air, and take out my air guitar. It's such an unapologetically in your face rock song. No it doesn't make a whole lot of sense, and yes the lyrics are a pretty simple...but who said other aggressive rock songs have to be deep? Tunes like Zep's Rock and Roll, the Who's Won't Get Fooled Again? and AC/DC's Back in Black are rocking too but don't make a whole lot of sense either (Townsend admitted as much in the Who's case)

Miracle drug and OOTS are two of their most beautiful songs...

This album is consistently in my Top 5 after AB and JT, and keeps changing places with UF. (An October/ATYCLB tie is my number five but that's another story)



Cheers

I know some people don't like the order of the songs on HTDAAB, but I think it's perfect. I love the order of One Step Closer, OOTS and Yahweh. Those three songs are a perfect ending to a brilliant album, not counting Fast Cars.

To me, it rivals Joshua Tree and Pop, in terms of ending songs.

when I first got HTDAAB, I kinda pushed it aside.. and then it started to regrow on me too.

well since everyone is showing how HTDAAM is crawling up their charts, I guess I'll show mine :

1) War
2) Achtung Baby
3) HTDAAB
4) The Joshua Tree
5) Boy

HTDAAB and Boy have been going up and down for quite sometime on my 'charts'
