WellÖ my enthusiasm didnít last for long. After a string of cool RSD releases, this one sucks.

No unreleased material, crappy artwork.

Obviously will be getting this one.  :D

But damn, why mess up the fine picture in the middle with the other red white and black ones?  ???

I kinda like it... although its still weird that the picture of Bono is like 10 years younger than the rest of them

I say this with the artwork for SOI in mind: that is the worst U2 cover Iíve ever seen.

Itís odd because the recent RSD releases had decent cover art.

Yeah, that cover is pretty bad. It's an interesting concept but I don't care enough to seek it out.

I agree.

I also agree the main image is strong and the ones round the outside ruin it.

Yeah. Itís weird. Releases were nice since Gavin Friday took over. Maybe he did a compromise and it turned out messy.

WellÖ Thatís as much money I wonít spend and space I will save.

Nah SOI is worse. I literally can't believe they greenlit that atrocity.
Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.
