may as well add an early dissent.
i keep buying u2 albums, i've been a fan for quite some time. unfortunately, they keep disappointing me with each release. oh, there's the odd song here and there that is pretty good, like if you wear that velvet dress and wake up dead man from pop, or lemon from zooropa. even beautiful day was decent, but for my money, they haven't made a really solid album since achtung baby. that album was emotional, introspective, and powerful. it spoke volumes to me. in my mind, nearly everything they've done since then pales in comparison. electrical storm? come on. now they're just bland and over-produced. as mentioned above, my fingers are crossed and i'm hoping for the best. i'd be thrilled to hear a solid u2 album, but i'm skeptical. i'll wait for it to hit the used bins.
