Using "Invisible" as some kind of cudgel because they're singing about their youth is silly.  Artists can't sing about their youth now? 

I can't speak for the OP-er, but since I did write a "list" I'll just chime in to say that I have no problem with Bono singing about his youth. In fact, I made it very clear that my list was not intended to be critical of U2 as a whole, but only to point out that Bono has a pattern of acting like each time they look back it's this crazy, unprecedented aberration, when in fact it is pretty standard for the band since 1998.

That's fair.  Like I said, it just seems like the rhetoric slides pretty quickly from "they've been looking back" to it being evidence that they suck, or something.  To address the OP, basically: yeah, Bono is full of hot air as usual.  But I also think he's genuine in that they've never done it to quite this degree before, quite so publicly.

EBW could have been a great song but IMO it has an overly 'pretty' almost sickly sonic veneer that sucks the raw emotion that exists in the song out of it and grounds the song mired in a MOR hell.

A real shame because it could have been achingly beautiful but for me as it is it is elevator/supermarket music where the production and this pop veneer that it has just wring the life out of the song - especially in the chorus.....some of the rest of it is fine but then this MOR hell is unleashed!

I agree if you're referring to the album version, but there are certain live versions that absolutely accentuate the pain and sadness of the song, at least for me. And as the tour progressed Bono's vocals got more interesting and Sinatra-esque.

I am absolutely talking about the album version.

The live interpretations are a different story.
