    Started work on a post over Xmas about U2 for the site. I think I’m the only one but I like them (in a have all their albums, even the Edge’s solo album, loads of live/studio outtake bootlegs and 12″s way). Will have to get around to finishing it…

    I like U2. Since I was 5 (am now 32). They’re human, they can make mediocre records (the last one, for instance. Why Eno doesn’t force them to go on a path like the one he followed on his own last record?). But at least, they don’t show contempt for their audience, like Morrissey…

    And don’t be fooled. Many people hate U2 because of Bono. Get over Bono’s megalomania and you’ll find a very good band. But hey, you can always go back to what you’re usually listening to. I know why I like U2. If you don’t like them, so it goes.
