Music is subjective. One man's most despised song is another girl's fave. It says nothing about the musical tastes of the person. When are we ever going to learn that around here?

To be fair, I think the best stuff on Behind is better than the best stuff on Bomb, but the worst stuff on Behind is worse than the worst stuff on Bomb. So Kite > Vertigo, but Peace on Earth < Yahweh.

A good point, I prefer ATYCLB for the high points, but HTDAAB is probaly more consistent in terms of quality.

How can a forum that largely professes to love The First Time hate One Step Closer? Both are low-key songs with understated vocals and deep lyrics, but OSC gets maligned while TFT gets lifted up. It makes no sense to me.


I don't think Bono can carry a vocal like that anymore. I think if U2 recorded TFT in 2013 it wouldn't be half the song, simply because Bono is nowhere near as good a singer as he was back then.

I honestly think Bono could have sang a telephone directory anywhere between 87 and 93, his voice was that good. Unfortunately in the 00's, no matter how good a U2 song was or wasn't, it was always likely to be brought down a notch or two by a poor Bono vocal.

I thought you didn't like first time? That's an honest question not trolling
