General U2 Discussion / Re: Songs Of Experience sales in the United States
« Last post by wons on July 16, 2018, 08:45:06 PM »
Just to add a new record in U.S. chart history, Drake's new album SCORPION is at #1 on the U.S. album chart with the lowest sales EVER for a #1 album in history, 29,254 copies sold, both digital and physical formats combined! The #10 album this past week may have sold as little as 6,000 copies, if Hits Dailydoubles estimates prove correct.

I envision them more as taking a direction similar to NLOTH--the more ethereal, murky sound--kind of a latter day Unforgettable Fire.

Working as an educator, I see Beatles, Ramones, and Led Zep t-shirts on occasion.

Bon Jovi seems like a nice guy, but just so predictable.

WOWY one of their weakest tunes?  Yeah, that's pretty out there.

Of course opinions can be wrong.  Including (in my opinion) the one that started this thread.  An opinion is just a belief, and it is entirely possible to believe something that isn't true. 

If the OP had said, "I don't like the Joshua Tree as much as most people do," then there'd be no problem.

I think WOWY was one of their weakest singles followed by ISHFWILF which was just as weak.  That's not to say they were terrible songs, but to me, the other songs were much better.  Streets is still a great song, BTBS, IGC and Exit are phenomenal songs.  While I prefer the ZooTV version of RTSS, it's original version is still powerful.

The B-Sides were perhaps their best.
i think the majority of fans would highly disagree with you on this, but to each their own.

I somewhat warmed up to Bon Jovi, if only select tracks by the band. I got both Ritchie and Jon's solo albums from the late 90s. And then, that situation happened when I felt somebody was playing a joke on me and my group of friends and "Have A Nice Day" came on the radio.

Sorry, no offense to them, or any of the fans, I just don't get it. I never have understood the whole big deal about them. Just, NO!

Dark Side of the Moon is so timeless. I can't think of anything else from that era that doesn't make me think, ah, the 70s. A masterpiece.
