  1. Everything was ugly but your beautiful face And it left me no illusion
  2. I went with EBW, too, but Iris, Cedarwood Road, Invisible, Lucifer's Hands, and Crystal Ballroom are all close behind. I remember when Electrical Storm was released as a single in 2002 with The Best of 1990-2000 and a Philadelphia-area DJ was saying how impressive U2 is with releasing another amazing song after (at that time) 20+ years. Well, here we are 12 years after that statement and it remains true. I can't wait for Songs of Experience -- and hope a lot of the "abandoned" projects from 2009 - 2014 see the light of day, for subscribers or for the public at large.
  3. Last time we met it was a low-lit room
  4. Thanks for posting that, febottini. Great stuff there. I am reminded of Rush's album (EP, actually), Feedback, where the veteran band covered the songs that made them get into rock'n'roll in the first place. The albums that followed have sounded like they were refreshed by the experience. With U2 following a similar path (sans the EP release of covers, but wouldn't that be a great album of 'songs of experience!' ), I think it's no coincidence that Songs of Innocence sounds like a refreshed U2. It's also no coincidence, to me, that U2 fans have said they can hear snippets of U2's past from Boy to Pop to NLOTH on it. Is it their best album? Maybe. It's much closer to a winner than not.
