What Ever Happened to Pete The Chop the Edge who wasn't interested in the same old guitar sound and came up with what we hear in EBTTRT, Lemon, & Gone!?

Exactly. I'm not here to promote Pop, but that record was a swedish buffet of interesting guitar tones compared to the last two.

You nailed it... the intro to Discothèque, the chaos of Gone, and The Edge's sophisticated approach to Do You Feel Loved are all pure guitar genius!

You can thank Naked Funk for the guitar in Do You Feel Loved. Plagiarism is sophisticated, right?

Still a bit of Edge in there. There's no denying he took inspiration from contemporary music to get his effects.

Still, Elevation's interesting too, if you're going there. Though not nearly as much as Hold Me.

Let's hope for a bit of creativity...

(and good catch on Larry disappearing, that's mildly funny).

They were credited as inspiration for the song.  I'm resisting the temptation to listen to Naked Funk's version... just not to ruin the DYFL experience.

The Lightning Seeds' "You Showed Me" is very evident on "The Playboy Mansion", which is quite a bummer. I keep humming from one song to the other whenever that track is playing.

No connection.

Holy Joe sounded nothing like Pop.

The Ground Beneath Her Feet and Stateless sounded nothing like All That You Can't Leave Behind.

Aslan cover won't indicate anything about the new album.  A cover is about U2 playing live. A new album is all about studio treatments and multiple takes.

Cheers,
