That would be the dumbest thing ever...

First of all, it's been done, so who would they get compared to? Secondly what would be your favorite song off that album?

How I wish U2 would do something like that, especially now, because they own more money than 99,9% of bands of this planet. They shouldn't care about iPod, hit singles, grammies, MTV, etc, they just should do like Radiohead

... but no ... U2 would never dare to do that. It will be the same rotten story again, you know, cheap claims "Edge is On Fire", "Our Best Album", "Best collection of songs ever created", etc, etc, fake "lost tapes" stories, etc. More and more publicity, the first single played to death on radio and TV, the album containing 11 songs sounding just as U2, the band featured on the cover, etc. The same old song
So you want U2 to do something fresh and different by doing something someone else has already done

I think they probably went in roughly the right direction. I just wish the songs and production had been better.
