How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb LJ Poll

Maybe this was done Nov-Dec, but as I was away on my travels so I wouldn't have seen it. But now we've all had a good wee time to digest the album....

What's your favourite track from the Bomb? Are people still digging the album?

For what its worth, I think the 1st 5 tracks are as strong as anything U2 have put out to date. I kinda struggle with the middle of the album, ABOY/AMAAW/Crumbs. I'm really finding hard to get into those. I'd go as far to say A Man And A Woman is the weakest song U2 have put on an album yet! But the album picks up again with OSC, through to one of my alltime fave U2 tracks, Yahweh. So yeah I'm pretty chuffed with the album. Lets see what you people think....

So, it's four in the morning, and I'm insane, but would anyone happen to know if there were any recordings made of the Conspiracy of Hope tour?

Lets see how the bomb does..

I know its far too early to be calling the bomb a classic album. We need to give it a couple of years before we can make statements like that.
But I'm adding the 2 polls I've done to the memories section of the community. Hopefully in couple of years time once the tour & everything is done & dusted. I can post the same 2 polls and we can see how the results change, if at all! As obviously some of these tunes will take a new life in the live show.

So as of now...
