"Oh FLOOD, Where Art Thou?" @ 04:58 pm

hapavox:
I hope FLOOD will be back for the next studio album. He was absent from the 'ATYCLB' recording sessions but was thanked in the liner notes. Come to think of it, the Best of 1990-2000 will have his name mentioned on almost every track that the band decide to include in this compilation. FLOOD has been a great producer/remix guru for the band(and countless others) over the years and it wouldn't hurt to have him onboard for the next ALL NEW studio release. I'm also hoping Brian Eno, Daniel Lanois, and Steve Lillywhite will all contribute their expertise to the upcoming studio album once again. I believe it's great for U2 to work with people that already know what they're capable of creating and to explore the limitless possibilities that may still be out there. It should just keep getting better and better for this band...

Flood

He's produced my favorite band of all time: Smashing Pumpkins. I fell in love with Adore and Mellon Collie the first time I had heard them. He's very talented indeed. I think he's the reason Pop is in my top 3 U2 albums as well.....

Yup! He's been with the greats over the years. Among other bands his worked for if my memory serves me correct are:

NITZER EBB
Nine Inch Nails
PJ Harvey
Depeche Mode
Ministry
Erasure

I'm sure there are more which haven't come back to me yet...

POP is/was an unfinished album as Larry confessed before. Howie B. and Flood did try something different with the band which worked/didn't work. Yet, it came out to be a learning experience and quite experimental. They realized some boundaries that shouldn't have been crossed in the first place but did anyway.

Electronic Producer? Sure, but not necessarily. FLOOD goes way back when The Edge did The Captive film score back in '86. He also helped with The Joshua Tree which I don't think had anything 'electronically influenced' at all. Flood just has an 'ear' for music which the band benefits from when he's on board in the recording process. I think he treats every band he works with differently.
