Oh, and just for the record? BOY ROCKS! It does. It's just crackling with energy and exuberance and potential ... and you can practically hear the goofy pants.

HEAR the goofy pants! I love that!

Yes, I love Boy. Boy is amazing!

PS. My mom and I saw Morleigh on 6/27...Our seats were next to that little booth...I don't know what the booth was for for sure...Vips, maybe, but there was like sound stuff in there too...she was in there.

Iīm sorry Gypsy, but that didnīt sound accurate for me. So I performed a quick search through Interference forums, using album name + appreciation thread. Here are some of the results...only 80īs U2. Some threads I posted in, some I didnīt. Nevertheless I think all of them are nice to read.

Latest Boy appreciation threads
http://forum2.interference.com/showt...threadid=63671

Latest October appreciation threads

Latest War appreciation threads
http://forum2.interference.com/showt...threadid=63668
http://forum2.interference.com/showt...threadid=58144

Latest Unforgettable Fire appreciation thread
http://forum2.interference.com/showt...threadid=39394

Latest Joshua Tree appreciation thread
http://forum2.interference.com/showt...threadid=39684

My point with all of this silly search was to make you see that lots of people here love other U2 albums as much as you do. Some also love Pop, including me, and I cannot agree with that theory about Pop being overrated among Interferencers. Weīre all passionate U2 fans...or we wouldnīt spend so many hours here, some for more than 2 years already. I donīt think any hatre will ever have a place among us. Or at least it shouldnīt have.

So lets praise U2. Lets praise every album, every era, every tour, every single song. They deserve all that praise. You will surely find lots of people who agree with you and your personal choices concerning U2 work. And I will follow you whenever you post a Boy appreciation thread...or an October appreciation thread...or a great thread about a marvellous song like Red Hill Mining Town you posted a couple of weeks ago...here:

Follower, I saw all those before and I never said or meant no one ever posted appreciation threads for other albums. The difference is, with those, no one ever starts off by going 'this album rock so damn hard and all the people who hated it were stupid idiots and wrong and misinformed and didn't get it.' If you think I'm wrong here, read the first posts in this thread and the ATYCLB comeback album thread, they both contain the cliches'. POP is the only album that is constantly brought up in some way, either directly or indirectly (such as in an anti-ATYCLB thread) and the underlying theme of 90$ of all Pop threads is not how much the person loves and appreciates it but how mad they are that it was 'underappreciated' and 'bashed' by so many fans, whose intellect proceeds to be degraded by remarks like 'didn't get it;' 'not a true fan' etc. Of course there are threads about other albums, but they are usually sparsely participated in, and there are no arguments about it. Only Pop stirs that kind of reaction.

Well my friend, although I respect your opinion, I still cannot agree with all of this...I see no need to fight over something so exaustively discussed here, and I'm saying that not only for you, if you nice people out there allow me. My intention in pointing out you and others to all those fine threads about 80's U2 albums was a good one because I thought you got things misunderstood...that their 80's work was underrated. If I was wrong, then I apologize. I said here more than once and I'll say it again...I'm damn lucky to truly love all U2 work, regardless anything, whether is an specific era, or album, or looks, or whatever. It's like Bono said in Trip Trough Your Wires..."I was thirsty and you wet my lips"...that's the way U2 songs are for me.

Peace

follower, I just have to say that I have really enjoyed reading your posts over the last couple of days. You seem like an intelligent, rational person and I really respect that!

To add to this, I think we all just need to lighten up in general. We're all here because we love U2. It's so great to be involved with a community where so many people "get it." I don't come across many people like this in my everyday life, unfortunately.

I think that letting people get a rise out of you here is just plain silly. I know that I've already let people get me worked up here about certain things too many times...and you know, it doesn't do either side any good to get all pissed off about it. Just Walk On and enjoy the music
