U2's website and clothes and cd covers are too dark and depressing


Recommended Posts

HI i am not much of a fan, but i like some of their stuff. however, they convey all the dark and dreary stuff this culture now is. their cd is all black andgray, this website is the same. they all dress in black. don't you all see they are just like the others? watch TMZ all the stars and celebs all dress inblack or gray. look at car interiors, look at electronics, look at 3 out of 4 people at walmart, its black and gray. look at james taylor new album, all blackand gray. seen the most recent Eagles? all in black. U2 is more of the power elite that dont know what they are doing really. they want to inspire with light,shine their creativity in our hearts and make us unite as one. trouble is i would never trust an angel dressed in black and gray, would you? walmart knowsthat making their shopping carts gray, and not red, subdues the populace into being sheep. black is the color of the night, of no lite, gray is the color oftombstones, the end of life. when a music group comes along in colorful clothes and colorful cd covers and a beautiful website that makes you happy, then iwill join the rest of you. but it is not U2.

:) As a bright, shiny creature of color and light myself, I half understand....I wish the website were not black. The grey, though, I thought was very airy andoptimistic. (ahem...designers, sound familiar? ;) XX)

 

Anyway....I am with you on the culture of grey. I live in Washington, and the colors here are mostly grey...grey hair, grey suits, grey ideas (until veryrecently)...I tried to put on a semi-transparant, grey-toned energy shield to make it easier to blend in, but had only partial success. Little flecks ofcolored light kept spilling out and giving me away! ;)

As far as rock stars and black...well....it is hard to shine light unless you first set up a dark space to illuminate. :)

Interesting. I have to agree in the most part. The black website is just annoying - style over substance. Some of their new t-shirts are cool - but I stillthink they have missed their mark from the ultra-cool ZooTV t-shirts.

Ever listened to the Joshua Tree? It's such a colourful album - yet black and white. Ever watched Rattle and Hum - insightful yet black and white. Iagree about the website but things are as colourful as you perceive them.

Why is black *always* related to depression and unhappiness?

Myt favorite color is black and if you ask any psychologist, he'll probably claim that the reason behind black being my favorite color is the fact thatI'm miserable creature (or something like that). Which is, by all means, NOT true.

 

I relate black/gray/white as elegant and sophisticated colors that go with everything. They're not *fading* colors like pastel ones. They're more bold,make solid statements.

But hey, that's only my opinion. ;)

A completely pointless thread but you make a good point...
