When isn't Eno being strange?
But that's a weird comment to make. I don't agree with it at all. What interview indeed?
EDIT- Now that I've read the actual comment, I don't see anything bad being said. In context, equating U2 to ABBA was saying that they wre a guilty pleasure; you didn't want to like them but did. So I'd say that's a compliment. Also, nice article; it makes me want to listen to the album, so I guess it did its job.
