    Passed the list to a randomizer generator, just because... 01 Rattle & Hum 02 October 03 No Line on The Horizon 04 The Joshua Tree 05 Songs of Innocence 06 POP 07 Boy 08 Songs of Experience 09 War 10 All Than You Can't Leave Behind 11 Achtung Baby 12 Zooropa 13 How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb 14 The Unforgettable Fire Qs and As: 01. Which was the first U2 album you owned? The Unforgettable Fire - back in the Jurassic time of 1986 and cents... 02. What were the first songs you heard from #3 and #13? Get on Your Boots... being the first single, the expectation was huge!!! Vertigo... It was kinda bonkers that it sounded like U2 but nothing like U2 (something that thinking a bit about it, for me it happens with every album) 03. What were your initial opinions of #7 and #1, and have they changed since then? Boy: This one arrived much later than the original release here, the one song I knew from this album was I Will Follow, but I was able to listen to it in full until years later. Liked it! Rattle and Hum: in a way it felt a sort-of Joshua Tree extension, so it was liked immediately - the movie also helped, since back then it was the closer we would have as being in a U2 show. 04. Which album(s) are your favourite? The Unforgettable Fire is, along with Disintegration, the best album ever. To complete the top 5 U2 albums, as High Fidelity dictates: Zooropa, Songs of Experience, No Line on The Horizon, Achtung Baby... 05. Which album do you prefer out of #10 and #4? All That You Can't Leave Behind vs The Joshua Tree... er... The Joshua Tree... 06. What are your favourite tracks from #6 and #12? POP - Miami... it defines and explains the whole idea of the album. Zooropa - yikes! Difficult to choose... mmmh... The First Time, maybe? (at least now, it may change in a few minutes) 07. What memories do you associate with #14 and #8? The Unforgettable Fire - a friend in high school: "Yeah, it's not bad... the thing is, now U2 has gone a bit commercial with this album"... yes, kids. Even back then there were comments in that direction. Songs of Experience - Being utterly floored by how good it is, the first time I listened to it. 08. Which album would you listen to when feeling down? these days, Songs of Experience... 09. Where would you rank #5 and #9 in your album preferences? um... higher? =P 10. Which album has a better opening track, #2 or #11? this means Gloria vs Zoo Station... o_O Achtung Baby... 11. What are your favourite lyrics from #10 and #13? All Than You Can't Leave Behind What once was hurt What once was friction What left a mark No longer stings Because Grace makes beauty Out of ugly things I'm not religious in any way, shape or form... still, i think the idea is beautiful... How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb You don't have to put up a fight You don't have to always be right Let me take some of the punches For you tonight 12. Which album would you listen to when feeling happy? these days, Songs of Experience... 13. How many songs from #7 and #2 have you heard live? Boy - 2 October - 2 14. Which tracks from #8 and #5 should have been released as singles? Songs of Experience - 13 (There Is a Light), without a doubt. Songs of Innocence - Raised By Wolves. 15. Which album do you listen to more, #11 or #3? Achtung Baby or No Line on The Horizon... No Line on The Horizon (gasp!!!) 16. Which album has grown on you the most? All That You Can't Leave Behind... at the beginning it sounded too "pop" for my precious alternative ears ( =P )... Over time, I managed to get rid of that pretentiousness, fortunately... 17. Which songs from #4 and #1 do you dream of hearing live? The Joshua Tree - It already happened... Red Hill Mining Town Rattle & Hum - God part II 18. Which album has a better closing track, #9 or #12? "40" or The Wanderer War, by far... 19. Which album do you prefer out of #6 and #14? POP vs The Unforgettable Fire... The Unforgettable Fire, by far... 20. Which album would you love to see played in full like on the recent Joshua Tree tours? in 2002, The Cure made a series of shows in which they played 3 albums in full (you can find them on the Trilogy DVD)... Since then, my personal little dream is that U2 follow those steps and make 3 nights with The Unforgettable Fire, Zooropa and Songs of Experience, in full...

    Warming up for tomorrow. Press review by danish Extra Bladet. Found the copy of newspaper from the bottom of drawer. They gave 4 stars, probably due the terrible weather, it was pouring rain.

    It’s kinda of an ongoing joke that Jets and I like to keep up. Back during that tour and for years after, we had many threads started about “what was the song before U2 came on?” I’m fairly certain “that” song is on the dvd....so if you don’t remember, you will Saturday. 😉

    Please report it; and since Bono doesn’t actually have an account, on the question where it asks who are they pretending to be, I’d put the official U2 one.

    Good morning, World. Glad for the distraction. 1. Boy 2. October 3. War 4. The Unforgettable Fire 5. The Joshua Tree 6. Rattle & Hum 7. Achtung Baby 8. Zooropa 9. Pop 10. All That You Can't Leave Behind 11. How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb 12. No Line On The Horizon 13. Songs Of Innocence 14. Songs Of Experience My answers... 01. Which was the first U2 album you owned? Boy. I remember when I Will Follow was first being played on KROQ in Los Angeles. I was 14. 02. What were the first songs you heard from #3 and #13? Must have been Sunday Bloody Sunday from War. The Miracle (of Joey Ramone) for SOI. 03. What were your initial opinions of #7 and #1, and have they changed since then? Achtung Baby blew me away from first listen. The Fly, Until the End of the World, ...Wild Horses, I couldn't get enough. Boy, I was thrilled by this new sound I was hearing. The Electric Co! Love that song. 04. Which album(s) are your favourite? Achtung Baby, Unforgettable Fire, October 05. Which album do you prefer out of #10 and #4? The Unforgettable Fire has two of my all-time favorites: Bad and A Sort of Homecoming. Love that album dearly. 06. What are your favourite tracks from #6 and #12? Rattle and Hum: So many good choices! I'm going to go with Desire. No Line on the Horizon: One of the very albums of theirs I don't like and haven't listened to since it was first released. I couldn't tell you what's on it. 07. What memories do you associate with #14 and #8? SOE: My wife and I saw back to back shows in Las Vegas. Zooropa: I remember thinking this was all the crap not good enough to make it onto Achtung Baby. I hated this album. 08. Which album would you listen to when feeling down? The Joshua Tree. It really is a wonderful album from beginning to end. 09. Where would you rank #5 and #9 in your album preferences? The Joshua Tree, maybe 3rd or 4th depending on the day. Pop: Toward the bottom, with Zooropa and NLOTH 10. Which album has a better opening track, #2 or #11? October (Gloria) or How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb (Vertigo). Both are great, but I have a real emotional attachment to October. Underappreciated masterpiece, IMHO. 11. What are your favourite lyrics from #10 and #13? All That You Can't Leave Behind - So many great songs, but I always think about Kite. My mom died shortly before this album came out, and Kite hit me hard. "I'm a man, not child. I'm a man who sees the shadow behind your eyes. Who's to say where the wind will take you? Who's to say what it is will break you? I don't know which way the wind will blow. Who's to know when the time has come around? I don't want to see you cry. I know that this is not goodbye..." Songs Of Innocence - "If you go your way and I go mine, are we so helpless against the tide? Baby every dog on the street knows that we're in love with defeat. Are we ready to be swept off our feet? And stop chasing every breaking wave." 12. Which album would you listen to when feeling happy? All That You Can't Leave Behind. Beautiful Day is my go-to happy song. 13. How many songs from #7 and #2 have you heard live? Achtung Baby - Not sure, I've seen every tour since War, so that's probably most of them. October - NOT ENOUGH!!! 14. Which tracks from #8 and #5 should have been released as singles? Zooropa - None. It's crap. The Joshua Tree - In God's Country 15. Which album do you listen to more, #11 or #3? How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb or War - War, for sure. 16. Which album has grown on you the most? I don't know that any has grown on me, as my initial impressions pretty much stay with me. Maybe Rattle and Hum, in the sense that the movie was pretentious crap, but the original songs on there are really good. Angel of Harlem, for example. 17. Which songs from #4 and #1 do you dream of hearing live? The Unforgettable Fire - The Unforgettable Fire... Boy - A Day Without Me 18. Which album has a better closing track, #9 or #12? Pop (Wake Up Dead Man) or No Line On The Horizon (Cedars Of Lebanon). Not very fond of either one. 19. Which album do you prefer out of #6 and #14? Rattle & Hum or Songs Of Experience - Both good, but Rattle and Hum wins out. 20. Which album would you love to see played in full like on the recent Joshua Tree tours? OCTOBER!!!! 😁

    Death finally won the chess match. Rest in Peace Max von Sydow. And thank you for so many memorable characters. Even your brief appearance in The Force Awakens was one that sticks in the memory. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-51803195
