Achtung is a work of art.....

 

I like all of U2's studio stuff, yet of course some better then others....No Line just took too long and they actually played with it too much....

 

With all the crap going on in everyone's life....I put on U2 and somehow I smile....I listen to the entire Zooropa album today fighting my way home to hollywood and it was just awesome....A 13 hour day, and I ended it with a smile....

now you make me realise that no line is also a bit north african and that is the big difference with achtung baby who was german/irish

Can't wait till the next legs of 360....U2 only gets better during tours. Their songs are so complex to play live it usually takes them a leg or two to work them out....Glad Salt Lake City was added as they will work some kinks out before getting to So Cal....

 

CAN'T WAIT.....

Achtung was also pretty influenced by the UK indie/ shoe-gazer scene of the time.� You can definitely hear a bit of Primal Scream, Happy Mondays. Stone Roses, and My Bloody Valentine in Achtung.� And if you think about it, the boys obviously got Paul Oakenfold to do all those Perfecto remixes and be a Zoo tour DJ on the strength of his production work and remixes of the Happy Mondays and DJing at the Hacienda.

 

Pop was also pretty Euro.� You can hear the influence of UK Big Beat and Electronica acts who were huge at the time, specifically Underworld, Prodigy and there'd be no Mofo if the Chemical Brothers hadn't existed.

 

Mofo sounds a lot like the Chems "Setting Sun" in particular.

 

And lets not forget Floods production duties, and also Scottish trip hop legend Howie Bs production work.

Please could and has taken SBS....Done....

 

I was thinking Disco (taking place for the Rave of Crazy) leading into a soft Starring at the Sun....How cool....

 

Dead man, Gone, Last night....they can all work....

 

Ironic Miami was the weakest track on Pop, yet what a Rocker live? Saw it at Giants Stadium and it was awesome....
