It was truly brilliant. I loved the bit when Bono says that The Edge doesn't even need him during the live show, and the Edge agrees buts says it would be boring without him. And Forty Foot Man!

How are finding the album?

Am enjoying it, only have it on while in the car. I would not be a huge fan but do love some of their songs.

interesting Bono being slow close to the troubles in NI, if you remember JBJ got slaughtered for talking about Bono being slow close to the troubles in NI

I honestly found most of the reinterpretations to be rather boring, especially Bono's voice doesn't work for me at all. Only good thing is that I listened to TLFR after it and enjoyed it a bit

I haven't even bothered listening it on spotify yet.
But I find it interesting that they still get a number 1, with hardly any promotion, and with a Greatest Hits reworked as TLFR.

Funny you say that, as I re-visited TLFR today too. I think they released it 20 years too early - I enjoyed it a lot more today, and if it was a new release, with Jons vocals how they are, I think we all would have been a lot more accepting of it.

With Jon's vocals how they are, not even TLFR level of singing is feasible. In 2023, he couldn't even sing the TLFR versions of IML, Wanted and most other songs.

I agree, however, that the perception has to do with timing, in 2003-04, they were still relatively young and fanbase had different expectations. That being said, it's not like U2 is heaping praise with this release, the usual 'critics' (think RS, Mojo and similar) are obviously eating it up, but the general public, judging by the facebook comments I see, is mostly quite critical, noting how boring those versions are.

It would be hilarious if Bono tried to do a 2006 Jon and replaced some of those songs on tour with these new dogshit versions.
