I agree that the Arab countries should do much much much more, but these people are NOT economic migrants, they are refugees fleeing war, violence and destruction

Zoo station by miles. I also have a soft spot for elevation - coming out with the house lights on was a really nice touch after the bombast of zoo tv and popmart openings. I guess Mofo 3rd.

Where are the Muslim countries helping these economic migrants find jobs? Saudi Arabia, Oman, Quatar, Bahrain, Egypt---all these countries have accepted ZERO economic migrants.Where is the outrage from moderate Muslims? Quatar alone owns half of London, is building stadiums and infrastructure for the 2022 World Cup.Surely, they would extend the hand of welcome to their Muslim brothers and give them jobs?

As long as the top five are (in no particular order) AB, TUF, Pop, Zooropa, and TJT, and the bottom two are (in no particular order) HTDAAB and ATYCLB, then all is right in the world.
Haha, I like your thinking (though I'd probably swap Zooropa for SOI).

Well to be fair, SOI is my favorite at the moment. As to where it belongs among the rest of the albums in their catalog, it's too early to say.
Yep, totally agree with that, we'll have to wait & see how it ages.

Now would be a good time to play The Refugee.

I hope that's not a joke.

R&H could have been a double. A live side with all the live tunes frim the movie and studio side with some of the b sides

Actually, that reminds me....wasn't it originally a double LP?  The new CD technology enabled the longer tracklist to fit onto a single disc, but I think it was on two records.

Yep, R&H was indeed marketed as a double album at the time.

If they go ahead with Songs Of Experience, I wouldn't be surprised if they then released a double of Innocence and Experience further down the line.  Again, not a true double album, but there you go.

I love big, sprawling, kitchen-sink double albums like The White Album or Mellon Collie by Smashing Pumpkins.  I know I'm in the minority but think it would be great if U2 got all the material they've been working on for the past ten years - Songs of Experience tracks, Songs of Ascent tracks, Rubin tracks, the "club" album, random tracks like Mercy etc, and put them into a Mammoth album with 30 tracks and no theme, musically or thematically.

The Music / U2's 1997 MTV Video Music Awards Performance
« Last post by Midnight is Where the Day Begins on September 04, 2015, 10:23:53 PM »
In light of the HORRIFIC television program that featured the worst that popular music has to offer, I watched U2's performance of Please from 1997's MTV VMAs. Kinda shocking just how much has changed huh?
