you won't believe this...

I was listening to HTDAAB, which I do every week or so to see if i may finally "get it." So I listened through the whole album, having the same reactions of boredom all over again. I wanted to listen to Wake Up Dead Man, the closing track from POP, to wipe the memory of Bomb, but get this...I accidently cued up the wrong song. Out of my IPOD U2 collection came "Is That All?", the last song from October! One of the well-known worst songs of all time from U2's career. And for some reason, I was loving it! It made me get up dance like a stupid white man! Now this may sound ludicrous to many, but "i like "Is That All" better than every song off HTDAAB"!!! And that says a lot about the current state of U2's music!

maybe i was just reacting to the riff and energy since HTDAAB left me nearly comatose. It was refreshing to hear. It's probably one of U2's most honest songs. Honest because it's U2 singing about not being able to write a decent song. And the frustration bleeds through the track. If you're in the right mood it will hit you.

People saying how boring HTDAAB is are getting boring.

I say you have far too much time on your hand. Maybe you should get a life or a new hobby.

Maybe knitting. Knitting is great for those that like to sit around and bitch about the same thing everyday of everyweek. My grandmother's knitting circle is like that, same conversation every week, you'd fit right in.

I wouldn't expec another comment from you ozeeko... Every thread you start or in every post you make you have to say smthg like this or even worse... But that's ok... I'm so getting used to it, that it is starting not to matter much.

Is that all... great riff... WUDM one of the most emotive U2 songs...

Wow, well, this goes to show U2 aren't trying to please everyone, it's probably a good thing there's such difference of opinion about their albums.

October is my #4 album of theirs.

I mean, cut a bunch of 20 year olds some slack ye know.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
