I like this album a lot. The Troubles, alternate version is my favorite on this album. Least fav would be This Is Where You Can Reach Me Now, and it's okay. And, yes, I'm the fool who even loves The Miracle.

Thank you...others have said just the opposite (and I really don't care!)  ;D

That's the way to be.  Taste is subjective after all.

SOI is just fine. There are some songs I love (Troubles, SLABT, Iris, TCB, CR, EBW- piano version) and the rest i like. Not a song I dislike even though it took me some time to appreciate California and TIWYCRMN. Films of Innocence helped me with this.

Those were my last two as well. Was entirely indifferent to TIWYCRMN and haaaated California, but one day TIWYCRMN clicked, and another day California suddenly became clear.

I was yet another regarding TIWYCRMN and California (especially the latter).  Minor nitpicks in the grand scheme, but I think it was the synth and intro respectively in the two songs (and I do like a few Beach Boys songs).  Reach now ranks well on my favourites from the album, and I also find California to be a good listen.

The Crystall Ballroom is tits

Iris is beautiful

Sleep like a baby sounds so 90's (thats a good thing)

California is like a guilty pleasure

Raised by Wolves and Cedarwood Rd are good rockers

This is where you can reach me now is a good song, not great but good

Troubles is a good tune

Invisible, where did it go?

Every breaking wave is a letdown

Song 4 someone, Volcano, Joey Ramone; i would rather sell my ass on the street than listen to these songs ever again. Having said that, they are FAR better than the clunkers on No Line and SoE.

SoI is my second fave u2 album since the turn of the Millenium. I like it all, with the exception of The Miracle. But i will listen to it of the album is on.
Had Bono still been able to play guitar, i always thought that TIWYCRMN would have made a great opener to the I&E tour, but it needed a second (acoustic) guitar, to drive it along.
