Man, this thread is NOT healthy for me to read! I mean, as if I didn't already struggle enough with feeling superior to all of you, I now realize that there's just no way to avoid it.

I've sensed your feeling often enough. ;)

I don't doubt that you have. O that my tastes and instincts were more like those of mortal men! But alas, I am cursed, plagued with this wretched brilliance....

But as long as we're Mea Culpa-ing, I'll admit that I never saw ZooTV. I was quite the spiritual kid back then, and those devil-horns and burning crosses scandalized me. Can I get a Te Absolvo ??

Wow, there are some serious sins on this here thread.  Incomplete Joshua Tree?  Never saw 'Red Rocks'?  Say Psalm 40 ten times, sing 'Mysterious Ways' twice (on your knees, boy!) and pray that Bono God forgives you.  (But the 'Zooropa' thing?  I can totally understand that.)

You and I are both Joshua Tree girls, SG.  I like AB, but it will never eclipse JT in my mind.  *drops to knees and prays for forgiveness from Yahweh, or Macphisto, or whoever's in charge around here*

I dont have October in my music collection yet.
I dont have the entire Joshua Tree album yet.
I rarely listen to ATYCLB & HTDAAB. Dont love them.
I find 3/4 members of the band attractive.
I feel guilty for not finding the 4th attractive. lol.

Thats all I got for now.

why has no one said anything about this.....? what, you're just gonna dowload it, and download it one track at a time or something? wth?

my confessions? um, i'll never be convinced that Pop is a brilliant masterpiece like so many on this board seem to think.

I cringe whenever I listen to Bono pronoucing "I feel like trash, you make me feel CREAN" in the album version of Ultraviolet.

Thank god we have bootlegs!

 I've only been buying U2 albums since the 6th June 2009! :-\

I think that's one sin most Bonofolk commit.

My confession is that I have never heard any version of Salome.
