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 Cheers from the West Coast!
