The Unforgettable Fire.
Word - "Why all the petty outrage over a freebee? Who did U2 kill? There's been less outrage over gruesome beheadings than over this. If you don't want the album, then simply delete it! There... didn't hurt, did it."
Probably the best comment I have heard from a U2 article.. seriously people need to get the eff over it .
Every high profile rant is just more publicity for the album....people see these rants and then go and check out the album....
It didn't do as well as the previous two because it was 5 years later. Those five years in the music industry saw a lot of CD sales and such drop like a rock.
The fact that it went platinum was impressive...
