October: Awkward follow up

War: Meat and Potatoes

TUF: Things getting interesting

TJT : A bit overrated

R&H: Poorly executed idea

AB: First proper masterpiece

Zooropa: Vorsprung Durch Technik

Pop: Oh fuck yes

ATYCLB: Oh fuck no

HTDAAB: Lumpen Turgid Shite

NLOTH: A mixed bag

SOI: Flame barely flickering

SOE: Flame gone out

Boy: Learning the ropes

October: Went too Christian

War: Got it right

TUF: Brilliant new direction

TJT : Made a classic

R&H: Few terrific tunes

AB: Bloody brilliant masterpiece

Zooropa: She wore leeemon

Pop: Sonic success failure

ATYCLB: Earnest but important

HTDAAB: Unos, dos, tres

NLOTH: Another missed opportunity

SOI: Too many producers

SOE: Needed Eno Lanois

The Edge: ď[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ĎYou know what? Weíre not going to second-guess any of this. Letís just go for it.íĒ

U2 Fans: We'd all love to see that, Edge.

Each line corresponds to each album.

We go first
Inside our selves
And the world

Then we feel
A great sunrise
All over America.

Now burst open
With new ideas
And new irony.

Loving but careful,
Losing our way,
Finding it again.

Going back there
Going where now?

- Kids having fun
- Kids getting lost
- Kids fired up
- Young men exploring
- Young men culminating
- Young men stumbling
- Men reaching heaven
- Men staying there
- Men overdoing it
- Men going easy
- Elders needing assistance
- Elders receiving some
- Elders giving freebies
- Elders losing energy

Boy : learning to fly
October : too much faith
War : here we go
Unforgettable Fire : let it go
Joshua tree : life is contrast
Rattle and Hum : too much ego
Achtung baby : broken tasty music
Zooropa : on a high
Pop : way too clever
ATYCLB : just stop exploring
HTDAAB : spirit is gone
NLOTH : magnificent cold feet
SOI : do surprise us
SOE : some average brilliance
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

U2 Fans: We'd all love to see that, Edge.
