When even the lesser of the songs on 'Bomb are eminently listenable, you know its a great album.

Answer Guy is dismantling it on @U2, and I don't know why he writes that... read especially AMAAW - it's really underestimated song

It's a great album, no doubt about that. I like it more and more with each passing day, if that's possible, considering the fact that I adored it upon first listen. I was worried at first that I might grow tired of it, but it thankfully hasn't happened yet.

Agreed Gibsongirl, I thought it might be too accessible at first, but I'm still loving it, and I honestly think its more of a grower than it seemed at first.

This album really is brilliant. BRILLIANT! Every song is so great in its own way. The guitar parts in Love and Peace are just unreal. This is truely new ground for The Edge. And his work on COBL Is just so precision, so tight. Don't even get me started on Miracle Drug. And that solo in ABOY. Gibby must totally agree with me on this one.

Yeah, yes! This album is so accesible on first listen, that if you're not careful you miss so much on it. I have to agree with some posters here that some mixes could've been done better (COBL while a GREAT song is muddle somewhat), but overall this is a great album. Crumbs takes my breath away as I listen past the chiming guitar and here the power chords Edge is hammering out, or the great subtle power of One Step Closer. Or how about the great (underestimated) melody of LAPOE?

This album is going to be huge, no matter what some people here think.

Great post. It's funny cuz I came back tonight and listened to the whole thing straight, loud and the whole way through, and was looking for a thread to say how great this album is. It's absolutely incredible.

I turned up the volume on it and proclaimed that it has to win at the 2006 grammys for album of the year there just isnt a weak link on it.

I don't know why Answer Guy just tries to pick out tiny flaws just to make everyone pissed
You know, I've also noticed that during refrain Edge plays chords from Pictures of you (The Cure)... but how can you build critic on things like that? How many chords are used on HTDAAB, how many bells are in CFYT and so on.
Hope you'll understand what I'm saying

I don't hate any U2 album and HTDAAB may be my favorite of the bunch.

Why would you think I hated it?

Pardon my ignorance, but won't it be eligible for the 2005 grammys?
