What's your favorite Bono vocal on HTDAAB?

1. Sometimes you can't make it on your own
2. Original of the species
3. A man and a woman

Hands down - SYCMIOYO. Starts out low and erupts into that tenor A and sustains it. Very beautiful. It'll be the highlight each and every night on the tour. It's already getting the applause and audible gasps it deserves during these promo tours.

The "Can you hear me when I sing, you're the reason I sing, you're the reason why the opera is in me" is just about the best mix of lyrics, vocals and music that U2 has ever done. So for me it is definitely Sometimes...

I think Bono's voice sounds absolutely phenomenal on this album, it literally has me amazed. I won't pick a fave song, just suffice to say every vocal on this album is just beautiful.

Love and Peace or Else, Crumbs and One Step Closer. I don't know why I love the vocals in them, but I think they all represent a different U2 era vocally for Bono. LAPOE is more AB styled, Crumbs is definitely JT and OSC is late 90's Bono.

SYCMIOYO overall, and I love the "Im alive, im being born i just arrived..." part from ABOY, blows me away, also the beginning of One Step Closer is so heartfelt and sweet *sweet awesome and sweet wholesome*

The SYCMIOYO "siiiiiiing," COBL, and the ABOY scream.
"Mediocrity is never so dangerous as when it is dressed up as sincerity." - Søren Kierkegaard

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

City of Blinding Lights. I don't know why, it's just feels like a new Bono to me.
Sometimes is no.2.

I am hearing (and seeing lately) a new Bono on all the tracks--this album is great. Whatever he's been doing lately--he needs to keep it up, cause I think his voice is very strong. I esp love COBL.

I'll have to go with the scream near the end of All Because of You.
