I'd put bad in there. Promenade, wild honey, ultraviolet, song for someone, white as snow, running to stand still

A setlist focused on Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience would be absolutely phenomenal!  California, Iris, Raised by Wolves, Cedarwood Road, Sleep Like a Baby, This is Where You Can Reach Me Now, and The Troubles should all get played regularly.  I'd love to see them try that Vertigo Tour version of Mofo too.

Might as well do both albums front to back.

I feel like I'm one of the few U2 fans that actually likes "Grace," but there's one line from it I can't figure out.
"And when she walks on the streets/You can hear the strings"
Strings like an orchestra is playing because she's so beautiful? Even Bono has stated he could never figure out the true meaning of the word "grace," and I certainly can't figure out what he means with this lyric.
I personally adore Grace.

In an interview he once said that he sees in certain women, mothers in particular, the personification of grace.

That's more or less the subject of the song.

With the "strings" line I think he's trying to convey the sensation of purity, beauty and innocence a woman can make him feel while walking down the street, and it's so intense that's like there are strings playing in the background.

At least there is someone out there who also enjoys the song. Not my favorite U2 song, but definitely a peaceful one I listen to when I'm in the mood. That's definitely an interesting take on it, I never thought of it like that. It'll be an endless mystery, perhaps.

Haha, I can't stop cringing at the vocal delivery of "strings" long enough to ask myself what he's talking about!

With that sort of emphasis on "strings," you'd think he assumed we all knew what he meant. Clearly not.

How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb - U2

Actually not as bad of an album as I thought it was gonna be. It's pretty consistent, as most of the songs hang around the 6-8 range, and there are only a couple of clunkers (AMAAW, Crumbs come to mind) but even those two aren't as bad as some of the lows on ATYCLB and SOI imo.
