You don't get it so just go away.

I could have broken my neck writing this post but I didn't.

Telling people to go away because they disagree with you doesn’t do anyone on here a bit of good. Not sure why it’s still so difficult to communicate that we want these boards to be welcoming to people, not antagonistic to them.

Because they get so far away from their music. In today's society people do not want that. At least the majority doesn't.

But probably no one was hoping you broke your neck while writing it, different thing.  No seriously I don't get it and have no intention of going away either.

U2 are hated because of Bono. The people who hate Edge hate him because of Bono.

I am basically a unicorn because I HAVE LITERALLY NEVER HEARD COLDPLAY. I can't even name one single song they do. I do know who their lead singer is and who he was once consciously coupled with. I also heard him stand in for Bono after Bono busted himself up in NYC and I thought he sounded awful. (Sorry, Chris, I'm sure you're a good guy).

General Music Discussion / Re: Does Cover Art Still Matter?

I'm just old enough to know what it was like to put on a record and, lacking a text convo, Facebook updates to catch up on, or Candy Crush, to hold the album cover in my hands, to look carefully at the front and back images. If there was a gatefold, that was amaziing. Some sleeves had lyrics, a gold mine.

I did not have any U2 albums on record (just the JT singles which I only listened to for the B sides) but I sure do know what a treasure trove, say, Sargeant Pepper's cover was. Less complex, but mesmerizing, was Dark Side of the Moon. Michael was gorgeous on Thriller and I could look at him all the live long day.

There just is no comparison today in terms of how we experience covers. I only see covers in a tiny square on my iPod. I can't really stare at it.

I've never seen a Joshua Tree record cover. It must be a gorgeous thing to behold.

Maybe Songs of Ascent will be released posthumously.  :(

No because SOI = SOA

Title doesn't match body.

So, U2 is hated because they are good businessmen. Explains their longevity.

I agree that "Magnificent" would be wonderful.  It would be good to retire BD for awhile.

I became a fan in '83, too!  I was in college.
