U2: When They Didn't Suck Redux

I'm probaby going to be posting a lot about this period for U2 'cause it's my favorite period for any band ever. An album that famously shred the hell out of U2's 80s iconic (and now cliche) black white millionaires staring down the bad guys facade and in place did what they always wanted to do: lift our spirits without chastising us, making us believe in things that we could relate even more to, daring music that almost everybody, including the most dilligent U2 haters, love. It is hard to believe that the same guys who choose not to chastize the President for lying about the money he's giving to the continent Bono stands in (and strongly; he is my hero still) for released this record, but here it is, a memento of the "coming out" for U2, when they strapped on the shades and dance grooves, joining the ranks of such thors like My Bloody Valentine, Sonic Youth, Dre, Portishead, Nirvana, and others as battle charging vikings with smart ass grins plowing ahead with creativity, pushing their respective instruments into doing things we had never heard within the context of song formats we all know and love. A glorious, magnificent album, my absolute favorite of all time, this is what music is all about.

Note: Take responsibility for downloading this record for free, blah, blah, blah, we don't want to get sued. I've spent so much money on U2 at this point (and I'm sure you have to), that I'm sure dl'ing this record won't be that big deal, seeing as such that U2 will probably do a re-realease of this record in the near future, maybe next year, with tons of goodies and remasterings to boot. Just don't get us or yourself into trouble with RIAA by blaming us for setting up an easy to download from link. You're only sueing yourself!!!
