This is a thread where the PJ fans who are also U2 fans can talk news, music or anything else U2 related! This band has always been a favorite of mine and I have been getting their older albums and really enjoying them! If you are not a fan of them then please don't post your negative comments here, thanks! :mrgreen:

    They were spectacular in concert. Would gladly see them again if given the opportunity.

    been a fan of U2 since Unforgettable Fire and Joshua Tree came out when I was in high school and college. I guess you would say they are my favorite band

    I love old-school U2. Listening to anything post-Joshua Tree however can be sobering if you liked War or UF

    Can we have an 'appreciate U2 up until Achtung Baby' thread?
    Believe me, when I was growin up, I thought the worst thing you could turn out to be was normal, So I say freaks in the most complementary way. Here's a song by a fellow freak - E.V

    They've been inconsistent since then, but have made some great songs. I appreciate their whole catalog.

    I think the first 5 songs on "Zooropa" are great. I might be in the minority who really loves "Pop". Love ATYCLB, probably their last great album. HTDAAB is a good album and NLOTH is pretty good to me.

    What I'm saying is I love their shit until then, then they got kind of boring, IMO. However, the first three songs on The Joshua Tree are the best opening three songs on any album, ever.

    The last 8 are pretty good too.

    Achtung, Baby was definitely a big change to their sound and I can see how one may dislike it, I guess (maybe being used to their War/UF/JT sound). But I don't know how anyone could describe it as boring. :?

    It's perfect, there's a lot of U2 haters out there, i don't really get why, but this is the argument against them.

    People who don't like Achtung Baby - it's almost hard to believe they ever listened to it. :?

    Not one bad song on that album. The Edge absolutely owns that album. Check out "The Fly" from the Boston DVD. Probably my favorite version of that song.
