I know why lanois says that about u2, it is because
they are over some how they use to risk everything everytime,
not anymore they are just playing save, u2 is playing to save,,
no risks, I love abba too, I have no problem with that, but u2
used to CRash them All with songs like: Gone, Mofo, Please,
Even Better, Slug, Zooropa, etc etc.. Acoustic Version are so Boaring ¡¡
and when the songs are as Bad as The Songs from "Songs of Innocence"
EVEN WORST ¡¡¡,. music technology is going to Fast, and they just stay
with the same old TRICKS, "sound" no EVOLUTION at ALL in U2 in the last 15 YEARS ¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡
AMAZING... that happens when Everybody Says to you that You are a genius,
This "NEW U2" is Boaring as Hell no matter how many time Bono and The edge tries to explain the opposite,
If I could Produce 2 U2 songs I will MAKE them Back, to where they left after "POP MART"
Too many Mistakes U2, too many, Something is Wrong with this Guys,
