if you take away all the reverb and autotune that is very much present in their albums, her voice ( esp in a live setting) is really, really weak.
speaking as a longtime U2 fan, I agree with your assessment of the current version of Bono
aside from 3-4 songs, the album is ok, enjoyable for me. bands of their generation have long passed their peak, so im not expecting a “return to the glory days”.
POP & Zooropa were pretty good though. everything after that has just been ok, just ok.
U2 has become one of those bands where everyone you meet wont claim to like the post ” insert iconic album here” version of the band but still the arenas are still full of people.
I like it. Big fan of Mark and all his solo projects, im happy he’s really open to do new stuff with his work
i think only ghost town is free, no?
Hype machine going on overdrive now
maybe its lana del rey
