No Good Songs on the Horizon

This will be short as the dulcet sounds of nap waking have just begun...but I wanted to mention, as a warning, bit of nickel knowledge, whatever...that I picked up the new U2 CD at Target the other day thinking that, as it's U2 and generally I really enjoy them, why not?

I now have 12 reasons why not.

Not a single good track on the thing. I've given it several listens hoping it would grow on me like Zooropa and How to Dismantle etc. did. But no. In fact, I'd go so far as to say it sucks worse with each successive listen.

My vote? Save your cash.

I kinda like the title track, but that's it. Very disappointed.

Yeah, the title track is alright...but by the standard I have for U2...well...meh.

true.

And here I thought I was somehow missing something. Everyone seems to be gushing all over how great this new CD is, but I didn't find a single track that was worth listening to twice.

Grab Keith Urban's new Defying Gravity album instead!
