It's falling, it's falling,
And outside the buildings
Come tumbling down;
And inside a child on the ground
Says he'll do it again....

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

Tomorrow is great.  I listened to it the other day.

The other standouts are Gloria and the title track.

The only songs from this album that make my all time top 100 U2 songs list.

Went with Tomorrow. I don't like the uptempo thing they do at the end of the song but other than that its close to top-tier U2. Gloria and October are the two other obvious choices. I don't really care much for the album as a whole.

The album October has always been so-so in my view. Sue me.

Was in law school when TJT came out. Was in an entirely different field when AB came out.

Thatíll be all, your Honor.
