I lost it the second time through “I Can’t Live Without My Mother’s Love” when he hit the line “but mostly I’ll miss being able to call her and talk.”

Befitting its writerly nature, this album rewards multiple listens in a very literary sense: you start picking up lyrics that reference the events and subjects of other songs, and some very rich overarching themes begin to emerge from out of the disparate stories. Easily the most rewarding listen I’ve enjoyed in several years.

Now that Live Nation is fully calling the shots, it’s probably unlikely that the first order of business will be inking an agreement to have U2 play AEG’s crowning festival.

The real howler in this interview is when she waxes jealous about Kony 2012.

Tom, you’re crazy. I agree that “Reflektor” is a half-baked video, but Corbijn’s stuff is great, especially the early string of iconic Depeche Mode videos he did. Hell, he deserves Hall of Fame music video status if the only thing he had ever done was his video for U2′s “One”:

Ahhhh got it. You can perform all remaining penance by offering a tribute to “Almost Killed Me” next March.
