Bono's Voice The New Album

What's with Bono's voice during the repeating of the chorus on "All Because of You"? It cracks. Sounds like Peter Brady singing "When It's Time to Change".

Also, he can't seem to quite reach the high note of 'fake it' on "Sometimes You Can't Make it on Your Own"

Thoughts?

I really think for the last 2 albums U2 has purposely been leaving vocal cracks in the final mixes because they think the cracks are some emotional representation of the "moment". It's an arty thing. In other words, they could easily clean these vocals up (i.e. 'Vertigo'), but choose not to.

I guess, but doesn't the producer step in and try something different, especially on "All"? I'm suprised there hasn't been more comment on how awkward that chorus sounds. It's like he's trying to stretch 5 sylables into 7 or 8.

I think this has been discussed before here, but Bono's voice is not what it used to be. It's called getting older, that and the smoking.

I think the "fake it" on Sometimes is intentional. It's so noticable that it woulda been redone otherwise. And I think it goes with the song...

I think its fairly obvious that Bono's voice has improved A LOT since the ATYCLB era.

His voice can still make me cry or smile. That's good enough for me.

I think Bono's vocals have been brilliant on the last two albums...

Sounds fine to me. He sounds better than he did on the previous two albums.

The only time he doesn't quite make it at the high notes IMO is the chorus of Yahweh, and the very final "everywhere you go you shout it" line in Original of the species.

I think his voice sounds great at that concert, much better than for example at the super bowl.

He sounds alot better than the ATYCLB era. It is no where near what it use to be but he showed some really solid range on HTDAAB. For me their was only one Bono highlight (voice wise) on ATYCLB and that was on Kite. He has many on the new album. Hopefully he'll kick a** on the Vertigo tour.
