Brianne, you shock me with your ignorance. I mean, you must be feigning ignorance because there's no way that you don't know. Do you not recall the story about it in the Flanagan Bible? Cause I know you've read it multiple times.

Anyway, the story is basically this. Apparently U2 gave them an advance copy of Achtung Baby to review, with the obvious stipulation that they not print the review until after the album came out. The folks at Spin, however, decided to break the agreement and printed a pre-mature review in which they blasted the album. I think that's basically the gist.

Um, yes. Yes. I was feigning ignorance, Gina. That's it. **pulls at collar, twists awkwardly in chair** Boy, it's getting hot in here. Heh. I'm just going to -- **bolts for the exit**

I remember that story now. I just didn't remember that it was Spin magazine. Well, maybe they're trying to get back into U2's good graces again.

SPIN hates everyone who's ever been at the top of the charts. Makes them feel important I guess.

They've been uncharatertisically nice to U2 this past year, though. They even named U2 #5 last year in their list of important artists, though they did call them "geezers" to maintain their "ahem" cutting edge disdain I'll only buy it if it has some good pics. Otherwise I'll just read the article in the store

Anyone got a scanner?

Well I'm sure U2 have long forgiven them cause on the same issue that they got named #5 Bono didn't mind posing for pics to grace the cover. Though I do agree that was really stupid on the magazines part and makes me wanna throw up.

Don't forget that Spin gave Pop 9 stars out of 10.

Do you think they might change things, since George died? They might want to do a tribute or something. Who knows.
