Title: Least favorite U2 album tracks from 2000-2015
Post by: Am I bugging you? on May 25, 2015, 07:10:50 PM
  As fardreamer has asked us to vote for our favorites, I have noticed that our taste in U2 varies somewhat.  I would like you to vote for your 3 least favorite U2 album tracks from 2000-2015. Songs will be scored 3,2 or 1 points according to your ranking. Number 1 being your least favorite. (2-3 weeks for voting)
  Will our least liked U2 songs be as various as our favorites.

  My least favorites
  1. Yahweh
  2. All Because Of You
  3. Grace

1. Peace On Earth
2. Grace
3. One Step Closer

I actually do like Grace and OSC but I find them to be slightly boring and lack the attention-grabbing nature they should have musically.

Peace On Earth is one of the worst things U2 have ever done.

If you listen to them directly after listening to Pop they provoke a kind of gut reaction I guess.

tbh i find the worst offender on the album to be Wild Honey. Such an obvious b-side shoe horned onto the album.

A Man and a Woman - such a dreary song and not even good enough to be called U2 on autopilot. Really can't stand it.
Peace on Earth - Very average. Not terrible but so average which U2 up until then didn't do in my eyes.
Boots - yuck. Awful when I first heard it, still awful now. Great live to be fair though.

Miracle Drug

The character singing this one is so different from the one singing the rest of the songs on HTDAAB that this song really could only have worked on this album if Edge had sung it alone, instead of Bono helping him out.

Yahwey

U2 are religious folks and thus, they use the word that stands for the name of the Lord as a song title ... As a mixtaper, I don't touch this song, and I wouldn't even call myself religious despite believing in God. Well, this better had been a good song then ...

Breathe

Probably the weakest lyric from the NLOTH album, and the plonky keyboards make it feel like a HTDAAB leftover

Fez/Being Born

Kind of an overture to the HTDAAB album, this one does not feel like a complete song. Had they put another "medley" of sorts onto the album as a 12th track, this one would not feel so out of place.

Get On Your Boots

They fixed this song in the live version. It's too bad the album version is now here to stay. Musically, it's pleasant, though.
