Here is YouTube MacPhisto opinion piece:

It includes fan made screenshots and links.

I would not even waste my time watching a video with a title like that.

No me neither....the comment section was horrendous.  I think they need their heads examining!

I learnt a long time ago not to read comment sections on the Internet.

I think it contains some screenshots of your Macphisto site.

I'll take your word for it. I have no intention of giving them the views they're hoping for.

They've unfortunately turned MacPhisto into a political mouthpiece.  I prefer the original incarnation of the character from Zoo TV and the awesome video for HMTMKMKM.

Preferring the ZooTV version is one thing, but how on earth do you figure he wasn't political? The current version is entirely consistent with the original.

General U2 Discussion / Re: Overwriting
« Last post by ShankAsu on Today at 12:29:08 PM »
They've been guilty of overproducing for decades- sure that includes re-writing.  Probably the only album that they didn't overwrite on was October which is very minimal as far as lyrics go.

General U2 Discussion / Re: 2018 Fan Club Gift
« Last post by ShankAsu on Today at 12:27:45 PM »
I'm done with the gift club subscriptions.  A bit disillusioned with the band these days since they've decided to turn their concerts into a political rally for the EU.  Not what i signed up for.
I really enjoyed some of the past subscription gifts, but i also think i'm done paying money to just collect anything pertaining to the band.  Will probably be more selective going forward.

The Band / Re: Bono's Best Vocal Moments

While he's got some memorable early songs, i prefers the low gutteral vocals on WGRYWH and RHMT.

Wow there are so many, but ultra recently Id have to say the recent acoustic performances of Best Thing on Milan TV and from Abbey road are definitely up there.

Check out the recent acoustic performance of Love is Bigger from the Ellen show. Note perfect from start to finish - id say this was bono maxing our his current range and using it the best he possibly can for 2018

He seems to perform better acoustically rather than live on the recent tours Ive noticed

I was impressed before by The Edge but after watching this Rig Rundown and hearing Dallas talk for an hour about The Edge, I'm even more impressed by his dedication to detail and tone and soundscapes, etc.

The Band / Bono's Best Vocal Moments
« Last post by dwaltman on Today at 11:42:45 AM »
One of the things I miss about aging voices are those moments that can send chills down your spine.  I just saw Elton John, who was spectacular, but never attempted those high notes he used to hit.  While Bono still sings with emotion, energy, and conviction I miss some of these types of moments:

Bad
With or Without You
Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own (especially live)
Vertigo
Please
If You Wear That Velvet Dress (J.Holland version)

What are your favorites? Especially any recent or very recent moments you think are good.

Tours / Re: Is U2 phoning it in?
« Last post by dwaltman on Today at 11:38:27 AM »
I would guess that at any 1 show, less than 100 fans are seeing their 2nd show of the tour. 

Phoning it in to me is akin to "going through the motions."  Not putting your heart & soul into the show.  As a fan who has seen multiple shows, I can't agree with this statement.  Having a similar setlist doesn't mean they are not putting their all into every show.  Yes, they don't have to prepare for 40 possible songs but that is different.  Am I impressed at the # of songs bands like Pearl Jam might play over a 3 night residency in one city? Yes, but I'm also impressed by Bono & The Edge, in particular, as to what they bring to the show.
