"Unfortunately, though, Bono's lyrics are too often a spew of artsy blather, unredeemed even by their own best intentions. Such lines as"True colors fly in blue and black/Through silken sky and burning flak" (from the song "Bad") apparently are intended to convey an image, apoetic truth, about the ravages of war. But the attempted metaphor is hopelessly muddled: If the "blue and black" refers to the traumatized flesh ofwar's victims, what are they doing flying through the sky? Why a "silken" sky?"

did this reviewer really not know the true meaning behind "bad"?

"UF seems to drone on and on." I disagree, but to each his or her own.

 

"Hope they won't forget where their real fire lies the next time out." Yeah, I think they did alright with their follow-up. :)
