I'll try to answer some of your queries. :)

1.) I don't really hear any similarities between Teenage Lobotomy and The Electric Co. If you want to hear guitar riffs and guitar tones that sounds similar to The Edge's earlier style, listen to Television and Echo & The Bunnymen.

2.) It's not your imagination - Always is the song that eventually led to Beautiful Day. If you listen to Beautiful Day, you'll hear "alwaaays" in the backing vocals before the chorus. Sort of a subtle acknowledgement of the original song. Both songs follow virtually the same pattern and the choruses are almost identical (excluding a lead riff Edge plays instead of power chords.)

3.) One of the Zoo Station riffs is quite similar to the Walk On riff, yes. Edge recycled a lot of ideas on ATYCLB. :)

4.) Gotta love slides.

(on # 1) so hard to describe it in words. er... maybe it reproduces the same *feeling* if not the sound.

Thanks for the info! :-)

Ooh, I just remembered another "sound-alike" - but of course, everyone must know this already - the *airplane* sounds in "Bullet the Blue Sky".
