As far as AB is concerned, I loved the album on first listen. NLOTH... eh... not so much.

Which is funny because I had a hard time getting into AB on the first listen, but loved No Line immediately.

 

Now they are both my favorites.

That is funny. I guess I loved AB because it was so different than JT and R & H. It had an unexpected edge (pardon the pun).

 

No Line has grown on me though there are still some songs I skip over. I'm excited about hearing the new songs live and I'm sure that'll pump upmy love for the new album. Live has always been where it's at for me with U2. They excel live and I would have to say, imo, they are one of the best liveacts ever.

LOL...you are confused by your close to New Jersey location....Bruce is not even in the conversation of "Greatest Rock Bands of alltime"....hmmm...this would make a good topic!! (U2, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Doors...these are the bands that come up in this discussion) Bruce isa solo act. The "Eaststreet Band" backs him up. His name resinates large in America, but not so much World Wide. "Born in the USA" madehim famous in America. Not so much around the world.

U2 are the godfathers of "Alternative Rock"....they built the format....you must not be a fan of "Alternative Rock" if you can't hearwhats great about the new album...they remain cutting edge!! (Just like WAR/Achtung/Zooropa/POP) They experiment and create more then any other band. This iswhat makes them great. This is what is better about this album more then the last 2 (and I love the last 2 in some ways) They went back to experimenting,instead of doing what the "Joshua Tree" fans wanted (a back to basic approach) Which is why they suspended the Lillywhite sessions, and went back toEno to create "New and Alternative" Rock music. They are cutting edge again. Please bring us more great alternative rock tunes like "NoLine", "Magnificent", "Unknown Caller", "Breathe", "Fez". I love the songs they created with Eno. "CrazyTonight" I believe was leftover from the Lillywhite sessions. A more basic song, that grows into Edge's amazing guitar melody. We will never agreeon your criticism of the new album. U2 has always been experimenters, it's what makes them so great.

I look forward to your response....I will let you get in the last word of sorts tongue02.gif

Cheers from the West Coast!

Gee... just big in Jersey, huh? Really? Odd considering Springsteen has sold out all over the US on this tour and is now playing sold out dates in Europe aswe speak.

 

Oh and about that top artists of all time conversation stuff, you might want to check out Rolling Stone Magazines top artist list called the Immortals;

This is just one of the lists out there... if you look up more you'll see Springsteen's place. And btw... he wasn't considered a solo actwhen he came out. His band... which btw, is the E Street Band, was not just his backing band. The greatest artists list of all time doesn't justinclude bands either.

 

So I'm "Confused about my Jersey location?" LOL... what does that make you? Just confused I guess, huh?

... as per Rolling Stone

 

http://www.rollingstone.com/news/story/5938174/the_rs_500_greatest_albums_of_all_time

 

Lists Born to Run at number 18. Not too shabby for a little old Jersey boy, huh?

 

Oh and just to clarify before I'm misunderstood yet again and accused on the basis of assumption of my location (which I'm a little put off as to whywas mentioned by someone who does not know me, let alone how it was known and made an issue of here), I am in no way saying that Springsteen is better than U2or vice versa. That is an opinion of preference and a matter I would never take part in debating. It's pointless to argue personal preference. But Iwill say, despite the out of line assumptions about my location, I would consider myself a bigger U2 fan than a Springsteen one. Mostly because I reallystopped listening to Springsteen after The River album while I've continued listening to U2 all along.

 

But it's ridiculous to say U2 is bigger than Springsteen. They're both equally popular artists worldwide.
