So far the band is 0 for 2 at the GRAMMYS. "I'll Go Crazy" lost both of its categories to "Use Somebody" by Kings of Leon. This was during the pre-show awards ceremony. The BEST ROCK ALBUM category will be announced later during the TV broadcast.

Reactions?

Coldplay won Best Rock Album last year. Nuff said.

Man, the Grammys suck something awful this year, both in terms of nominees and performances. At least last year we had U2 and Radiohead to liven things up.

Sadly I think the grammys have just become one big circle jerk...

Look at the last 10-20 years for example, the best albums...

Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt, Quincy Jones, Natalie Cole, Tony Bennett, Bob Dylan, Steely Dan, Ray Charles, Herbie Hancock, Robert Plant/Alison Krauss, Santana, that Band of Brothers thing...

Hardly pushing the boundaries of music production.

In fact, in the same way that portraying a one-legged mentally ill holocaust victim will GUARANTEE you an Oscar, any sort of collaboration with a music legend, duets, or posthumous releases will win you a Grammy.

I'll go out on a limb and say that if Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan release an album next year of whale songs, it will win best album.

While I LOVE the boys, I've been disappointed at the reaction to the new album.  I think it's fantastic, but I think if they win best rock album people will be snarky over it, because the Grammys as an institution reflects the ill of the music industry.  Even though I honestly think it's one of their best.  But I know I'm in the minority.  I'm just proud they are the group that has won the most Grammys ever with 22!

I always believed that the fans should vote the Grammys. 

I will also admit that of all the songs on NLOTH, "Crazy Tonight" would not be my choice for any nomination.  I think there are others on the album that are much stronger.

This pretty much sums up my thoughts! I listened to No Line yesterday for the first time in a while...I've loved it from the first time I heard it and I've never stopped loving it, but I've gotten kind of used to hearing it dismissed or criticized...but when I heard it yesterday with semi-fresh ears, I remembered just how great it sounds...all of a sudden I wondered how so many people could fail to hear what I was hearing. It just seems so utterly beautiful, a challenging, cohesive album and a real departure from their other recent material. I don't claim to understand the whims of public opinion or the intricacies of Grammy voting, and I will be a LITTLE sad but not heartbroken if it doesn't win tonight...but what I DO want more than anything is for U2 to make more music like this. I know they have a lot of stuff they're sitting on from the No Line sessions...I just hope at least some of it finds its way to us eventually!

HA!  Likewise!  I agree...it's fantastic!  What do these people know, anyway.
