No reason to send complaints. Who the fuck cares what some low-fi web-geek thinks about U2. I couldn't even read it, the slop was so tiresome.

Interesting article. He makes some valid points about the new album and perhaps U2 can pick up a few pointers for future reference. But in general, I find it hard to believe that all of the 11 worse songs of the year are from the same album. It just goes to show that Maddox doesn't listen to much other music except U2. Thanks for posting the link.

Cheers,

J

I am sorry, but i find this article funny as hell. Needledick maddox must have put some serious time into listening to HTDAAB, and also writting this hilarious piece of crap.

Okay...does this guy like U2? If not, what kind of person spends so much time analyzing an entire album and music group that they don't even like?

I haven't read the article yet, but I am quite a fan of his site. Most of the time it's incredibly offensive and hilarious. I reccomend that no one take this article seriously, because neither does he. Don't bother sending complaints if you are offended, because that only fuels his desire to piss people off. Take everything on his site with a spoonful of salt.

He lost any point to prove when he said "when was the last time they had a hit?"

Come on, this is bullshit. This guy is allways saying shit about everybody. Complaining would be a waste of time, it's not like we're going to change his mind (if that's really what he thinks about the album) and make him write good things about U2 there. It's his site so he always wins. Fuck it.

I didn't have much respect for this guy until he said:

3. How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb - U2 - Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own

zzzzzZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.... YAWN. So let me get this straight: U2's "triumphant return to its rock and roll roots" includes a teary song about his dad's struggle with cancer. Rock on you frauds.

This guy truely KNOWS what he's talking about...

I could care less. I don't think he's very funny at all, but at the end of the day he's just another idiot on the web trying to act cool and controversial and stuff.

He's very creative to actually come up with bad stuff to say about this album.

You really have to take his site because it's usualy tongue plastered right in cheek... I'm sure he doesn't mean half the things he says.

It sure is funny though I love how he described Lindsey Lohan's CD as "aural holocaust"

Yeah, Í'm a big fan of his site.

If you think that's funny you should read the one about "Crappy children's artwork"

Say he hates U2.

Why does that prevent you from liking them?

Live and let live, people.
