'The ground beneath her feet' was on my CD. Which gave the album a strong finish, which Grace' doesn't.

'Beautiful Day' was a Bullet proof lead single & no risks were taken with follow up lead singles.

As Bono said in a 'not so secret' album launch gig, U2 were 're applying for the job as biggest band in the world'. The album was just about good enough to achieve this. Oasis were on the slide & Radiohead were going through their own 'Passengers' period.
Even though TGBHF is on the album in some countries, i don't consider it part of the album as it was for TMDH soundtrack.  But if it was, it would be my favorite.

Still not a huge fan of this album- I prefer HTDAAB to it.  The second half is very weak, but i actually like the simple songs on it juxtaposed to Elevation and Walk On.

"Cedars of Lebanon," "White As Snow," and "Acrobat" fall into this category.  Now I listen to them quite often!

Very few people see multiple shows, so the set list sameness is not really an issue for most people.

Define very few

Data and hard facts required for such an assumption? common sense and life experience tells you most people go to one show of any kind. A minority will go to multiple, which I'm sure is all that was meant by a few. Maybe one thing that needs to be defined is splitting hairs.

Everyone knows Simple Minds because of their hits, but go on YouTube and look up "This Fear of Gods", "Love Song", and "Today I Die Again".  Really brilliant stuff and ahead of its time.

Yeah Iíve only recently become familiar with the back log of Simple Minds and love so much of their stuff.

What are some of your favorites? I LOVE all of Once Upon a Time but have been wanting to listen to more of their good lesser-known stuff.
