or that is more Pop in the sense of the Pop album, which I will love.
Once Bono said....Pop is the first album where U2 sounds like MEN, and I agree.

WORD! I totally agree with everything you said.

Every album U2 puts out is a pop album. You can appreciate the older material all you want, like Achtung Baby, but that album is chock full of pop singles.

U2 have always made pop music, and they have made damn good pop music.

Yes, you're right. In this case, POP is popULAR, whereas shit like Britney Spears is Bubblegum Pop. BIG, BIG difference!

Well, I remember how Bono once described SBS as a -pop- song in some interview,

For me, the beauty of U2 is that they're always changing, which is why I'm not scared at all about what the next album's going to be. Have faith. It'll be fine!

I guess most of us will stop caring when they become boring or just plain bad
but why would we expect that to happen?

I don't think that would EVER happen, because then they'd be like a "crap" band, and Bono said he would quit if they turned into that. Yep.

ya i also have a very hard time listening to ATYCLB.


Count me in as a 3rd, but I sure as hell wont 'jump off the ship', thats fucking weak.

P.S. They are all over 40 years old, I think that does make a difference because their interests are different, when they play the older stuff live, they rock just as hard as they used to, but as for new stuff, they need to put some sack on the record.

I'll just have to go BOOM-CHA and happily wait for Bono's pelvic dance.
Ooops, a PLEBA thought slipped out of my mouth!.

[/B][/QUOTE]

thats for me is only partly true. atyclb has maybe 2 songs that rock. maybe. maybe just one. and even that version is flat out flat compared to the tomb raider remix.

achtung baby rocks. hold me thrill me rocks. lots of their stuff rocks for me, and really i dont care if they rock or not. its just their softer stuff really is not standing the test of time for me. really, i listen to it out of guilt cause its u2. i have to like u2!

but really, if they want to be slow and soft i dont mind. but if its BORING, i will tune out.
