Nothing Much To Say I Guess, Just The Same As All The Rest
« on: November 07, 2010, 05:18:02 PM »
Hello everyone. I've only just recently found this forum and I can't wait to share my views on the greatest band in the world, U2.

Let me just start by saying that I am a huge Achtung Baby fan and my favourite song is The Fly (well my name kind of gave that away a bit). That whole album is one of the greatest masterpieces in the history of music. The lyrics on it are so deep, dark and meaningful. I love the lyrics to One. I really do think that they are Bono's greatest.

I am also a huge fan of No Line On The Horizon. I will be honest, as soon as I heard Magnificent, I thought to myself that U2's new album will be one of their finest. And it is. I love the fact that every song is different. You have a big production start to the album, but it all seems to quiet down through Moment Of Surrender and Unknown Caller.

I basically like chilling out with my closest friends and I love winding them up about how U2 are the best band in the world  ;D (not many of my friends agree with me). I like to just have fun with the people closest to me and I just love living each day to the max. I have never been to a U2 concert (I hope that doesn't mean that I will get tortured or something  ;) ) but i'm planning on seeing them next year with my brother.

I think my favourite U2 era has to be the 2000's, just because of the wonderful songs that they have released. I mean, if you take out the whole of U2's 2000's songs then you would have no Beautiful Day, Vertigo, City Of Blinding Lights, Kite and other great tracks too. I loved their 80's period, but for me this past decade has been their greatest (and you know that everything gets better with age).

That's pretty much it from me, if you want to know anything else just ask and i'll try and do my best to answer. I look forward to meeting lots of new U2 fans here that might help me stick up for myself when i'm talking with my friends  :D

Hi, The Fly. Welcome. We need more people who love NLOTH... It's getting a lot of abuse in here. ;) I personally love it. But to each his own. ;) I also love Achtung Baby. ;) I listened to it all the way through high school... which for me was the same time it first came out! ;)

My favorite albums are October (1) and The Unforgettable Fire (2). But I pretty much find something awesome on all of the albums....

Anyway, welcome. You'll find everyone here has a very strong opinion about everything. Which is good!!
