The thing that was the start of the slippery slope...

...was Edge re-discovering the coke riff for Beautiful Day. Cos since then thats all U2 seem to be using, check Miracle Drug, COBL, Crumbs, All Because and so on.

Wow, this thread was a surprise.

Do we ever grow tired of the monotony from some of the posters here?

On the "A Year in Pop" video, The Edge says he couldn't create songs like he did on "the Boy album" again cause he "had forgotten how to play like that". I wish he had never re-discovered it...

I don't know how there can be a discussion since your mind is already made up on U2 regarding ATYCLB/HTDAAB. You didn't even post "your thoughts?" or anything that would indicate a discussion.

Do you think anything anyone will say can change your mind on the band's last two albums?
Do you think you can change anyone else's mind on those albums?
Or do you just enjoy watching the angry responses?
(goes for U2_Guy and ponkine too. what do you want from us?)

Yes, guitar players play similar riffs in their career. Every player has his own style, and that's why it happens. It is impossible to play music without eventually repeating notes, chords, riffs...

Hey, I may not agree with you, but no reason to be rude about things. Still good to have fun, I say

LOL

So yeah, to participate in this thread..Why does Edge copy himself on this record? If only they could have made Pop2, only then I would be happy.
