The album is starting to sink in now.

I knew it was at least pretty darn good from the start, but there was something about it that just didn't seem right to me. It just seemed disjointed somehow. I kind of felt like I was enjoying the crap out of it simply because I was supposed to because it was new U2 music.

Well, now that's changing. I'm beginning to think of these songs in terms of another part of a huge U2 collection instead of just an individual album. I'm getting used to these songs and becoming comfortble with them and they're only getting better. I'm starting to develope "comfort zone" type songs from this album. Just like I did with all the past U2 albums. It's really starting to come together for me and I must say that I like it alot. I don't realy like the excitement as much as I like the comfort.

Now that this album is starting to sink in and become more "old" to me (that's not a bad thing) I'm liking it alot more. It's like We got some new family memmbers.

Hey Fly, are you serious?
It's really too bad when you have been a "virgin" all along and got disappointed?
You hate the album...
Oh no...

No. Hate is too strong word. I love U2 and every song they make cause it can't be so bad.
But! I really love only Miracle Drug. After that comes LAPOE as the runner-up. COBL, SYCMOYO, ABOY and Vertigo are next.
The rest of the songs hadn't 'hit me'.
I can swallow Original and Crumbs, maybe even One Step Closer, but I must say i dislike A Man And A Woman. I'm not saying it's a bad song, I just don't like it - a matter of taste probably...
And I find Fast Cars pretty good, interesting at least. It really IS something never done before by them.

So, yes, I was expecting sth better after all that hype and the clips, but it is a decent album, nothing more. To me.

P.S. I get goosebumps every time i listen to Miracle Drug, through the HOLE SONG!!!

Its odd...after all the "One Step Closer" bashing, I expected an awful, tedious song, yet it was one of the most immediate songs to me...very much in the vein of "Miss Sarajevo". Truly great song IMO.

You know some U2 albums take some time to digest...give yourself a few more listens. I love everything on it at this moment.
