Yeah, it just fit and it was fun. I kind of like the hybrid - sort changes volcano & raised by wolves to a more positive angle, though it's clear it's not the angle of the original songs. Just like the Kim Stanley Robinson I posted farther back - had just read it and it had that weird echo of several bits of the album, circles in disturbed water (is "ripples" fundamental or cliche I don't know), echoes of ideas, nudges at societal views, etc.

I just realized Bono might also be talking about Heaven on "Where the Streets Have No Name" ...besides the wild, untamed, natural scenery (Ethiopian inspired) that is obvious...

 

Sorry I'm not on topic...

I'd rather go where there are no streets, except of course Cedarwood Road - there back on topic.

 

AB s still the darker album - the lights are out, you're scrambling for a match, and hoping that wet spot isn't a pool of gasoline. SOI gives you a light and a beer and a home.

Couldn't disagree more....I find more light in AB ... I can't find the darkness at all Or if there is one...it's a darkness that's used properly, in the benefit of light...This album (AB) makes me happy....I'm not going to go further on with this...

BACK on topic...although we were never off topic because innocence and experience go hand in hand...But for the sake of being polite...

 

I was watching a Franco Nero interview the other day on a local tv channel and he said something that really inspired me, it's one of the greatest thoughts I ever heard...

 

He said that the best thing a man can do if he wants to be a good person and an artist is to keep his inner child alive, otherwise he will become an  evil  and villainous man !!!
