You Too?

"Unos, dos, tres, catorce!"

So Kelly went out and bought How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb yesterday. I have to admit, I haven't been this excited about an album release since GNR put out Appetite For Destruction when I was in high school. They had me at hello with the I-Pod commercial and I've been streaming it from MTV's the Leak for a week. But it's nice not to have it on CD and not get cut off every two minutes.

My thoughts on the album and U2 in general:
Great tunes- I would highly recommend getting it. The weaving of driving rhythms with lyrics that have spiritual depth is genius. If I had but one band to listen to the rest of my life, it would have to be U2. Their body of work is diverse, yet compelling- especially for a three-piece band. I know the complaints out there against them: that they're soft, that they're just write spiritual lyrics to pander to Christians, that Bono should keep his mouth shut about social issues. Honestly, I don't give a rip anymore. In our society of deconstruction where everyone's a critic, I just like their music, OK. Why can't that be enough?
