i don't get the hype behind Holy Joe, it's a good b-side but a far cry from album quality song writing.

When I think about the stuff that has made it on to u2 albums post Pop I find your statement there very, very hard to buy into.....opinions and all that though of course...

For me Holy Joe easily outguns the singles u2 lead with post Pop never mind the albums tracks.

Life gets tougher for it when up against the bands 90's output but for me it would have fitted on Pop better than SATS or IGWSHA.

I wasn't referring to post-Pop. I meant the songs that made the album. SATS is light years ahead of HJ. I prefer IGWSHA to HJ to but i know thats not a popular opinion.

I'd take Holy Joe over the pair as I said - SATS i have always beena but meh about and IGWSHA isn't bad but it is let down by edges boring guitar parts.

As good as Pop Muzic was on the tour I can't get behind it being on the album. Live is where this track lives.
