Discotheque didn't work at the time but it's one of the best singles ever!
I don't like HTDAAB that much but I truly love SOI. One of the best they've ever made - surely on the top half of their discography.

The guy who mixed sci-fi, Kygo, and the single version into his own version on youtube called the "change of heart mix" made the the best version of the song and it doesn't sound forced.

With that said, Boots came after Vertigo and IMO it felt like they were going for Vertigo part deux. It hurt my acceptance of the song but I don't hate the Miracle or Boots these days. They are solid songs. Best Thing is a lot better than both

That's basically any band site. Even areas like movies or TV shows have similar themes as to what's discussed or how they're criticized one way or another.

Oddly enough, I sometimes thought that some of the other bands' sites came across as a bit tamer than this one at times.

It's not as good as ATYCLB, but HTDAAB still has some great songs. OOTS is one of their best songs ever and the lyrics really speak to me. Miracle Drug is decent. I do like SYCMIOYO a lot, but I still think it's nothing compared to Kite.
I like Bomb quite a bit - I actually think it's a better album then ATYCLB, which is probably my least favorite U2 album. HTDAAB does have a lot of great tunes.

This is the only band site I post on, so I can't comment on others. I am on other forums for non-band stuff, and to me this one is definitely the least tame lol. But, it could be a band site thing, I can't comment on that, as this is the only one I post on.

Some opinions confuse me. But as long as people are respectful, it's all cool. There are certainly some decent members here. But there's a lot of venom too. Tbh though, facebook isn't exactly a walk in the park these days either.

I must be in the minority of thinking that the Change of Heart Mix sounds atrocious. People are complaining that the single mix has no aim, but the Change of Heart Mix doubles down and just combines everything.

I think that the band need to get themselves OUT of their videos. They could use the budget on making some really cool, imaginative videos that could draw some attention. But they use it on boat rental instead, showcasing Bono's granny glasses.

Hey everyone - remember how old we are?? No? Oh, here come take a look at our new video.

Now would be a good time to be silhouettes (or semi silhouettes), a la their 2004 iPod commercial.

I hate it when that happens. It's literally happened to every single one of my past relatives, I think it might be inherited.

Motorhead's "Killed by Death" did it in.

I dont think the band really give a damn about videos themselves.. let the lyric video do the work for them.. a stream on youtube is the same either way.

Not sure what you mean about thinking my posts disappear. And for that matter, not sure who you mean by 'you all'.

are you feeling OK? having a meltdown, or is this just another normal day in BVS land?
