My favorite guitar sounds from the Edge are the sounds he makes in "Until the End of the World" and "Ultraviolet Light". The fast chord playing with a cool cosmic/electronic distorted effect is the Edge rocking at his best (and "The Fly" too.)
Bono has said that the Edge "owns" a particular sound. Most people think of that as the chiming, arpeggio sound, like the feel of songs like "Walk On" or "Song for Someone" and even "ISHFWILF."
I would love a few songs on SOE that have the sound similar to what Edge makes in UTEOTW and UVL instead.
I still love the band and will enjoy good songs nonetheless. When I say the experimental rock sound of the 90s U2, those Achtung Baby songs stand out for me. (Similar to Mofo or Lemon sounding song(s) would be awesome too.)
Since Achtung Baby, how many stand out Edge dominated guitar heavy rocking songs have there been?
