10 Years of U2
« on: March 22, 2020, 03:17:17 PM »
As much as it would kill me to miss out on Pop, I had to go with '84-'93. Keeping Pop would mean sacrificing TUF and TJT, which I don't think I could do.  :(

Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.

The real magic decade for U2 was 1983-1993. Since that's actually eleven years, it comes down to a choice between WAR and Zooropa for me, and Zooropa takes it by  whisker

There is an option to substitute Rattle and Hum for ATYCLB. Would you ever listen to R&H?

I didn't like R&H very much.

I despised that ridiculously pretentious gospel choir rendition of ISHFWILF - a song i was not all that keen on before it got that treatment.....The live recordings on it were all pretty meh to me and the studio tracks i never really had much desire to return to.

But overall i suppose if i was forced to listen to R&H or ATYCLB then i'd choose R&H, but i'd rather never have to endure either.
Since 1995.....

Went with 91-00. I'll listen to most of ATYCLB and I've listened to R&H a looooooot so it's already kind of branded into my brain.

But I'd swap it for NLOTH if I could.

Why did Zooropa, October, and NLOTH all have to be more than ten years apart from one another. I guess I choose TUF-Zooropa.

I need to recast my vote! I didn't see the "TUF, TJT, R&H, Achtung Baby, Zooropa (1984-1993)" option!
The Edge: “[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ‘You know what? We’re not going to second-guess any of this. Let’s just go for it.’”

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

I can't do it either.  TUF - POP is the magical period for me    :-\

If POP was in there, I'd go for it.

Same fucking dilemma for me. Exile, you’re killing me!
