Bono quote

I found this at another forum:

"About How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb. Is it a rock and roll album? "

"No. When we first went into the studio it was mad it, was like the MC5, The Stooges, just rifferama, Edge with a stick of dynamite up his hole, just going off. He was pissed off with something, I don’t know what it was… probably me. It was really powerful rock and roll, and Edge is much more Zen, much more monkish, much more ethereal. So to see him with this amount of metal in his system was an amazing thing. But in the end we couldn’t get it to the other place, whatever that is, that feeling that I want from a U2 album, and I think that other people want, that thing where you just lose yourself, so we’ve left a few of those songs behind from what you could call the rock and roll album, and it started to become more dimensional and more unique, and the songs started to transform more into our own image, whatever that is.. "
