Worst subject matter for a U2 concept album
« on: May 29, 2017, 05:40:34 PM »
Concept albums don't exist as much as they did in the late 70s prog-rock scene.  U2 albums have had strong Motiffs, like JT and Achtung Baby.  If they did do a true concept album what would be the most head-scratching topics to build that concept around?

Album based on Dumb and Dumber (1994)

Lost Colony of Roanoke

Opium Trade Routes 1887 - 1903

Invasive Species in the Everglades


Urinal Troughs

Wasn't SOI a concept album? At the very least, it had a dominant central theme.

Pretty close.  Rolling Stone labeled it as such

zero, your imagination is in full flight tonight. Mine has suffered plenty of dullness with the grind of daily life. Also, Tiger pulled one of his PR stunits to say it was mixed medication.

Isn't 'Invasive Species of the everglades' and 'Tiger Woods concept album' the same thing?

As Sir Elton once said..."It's four o'clock in the morning, dammit, listen to me good. I'm sleeping with myself tonight, saved in time. THANK GOD MY MUSIC'S STILL ALIVE."

I don't know why I just typed this...I think because it's just after four in the morning, and this thread has made me a bit daffy! Have a good day, everyone!
