Funny, I was thinking almost the same thing when I came across that book in the bookstore shelves. My roommate and I were also talking yesterday about some stuff she'd come across in some local forums and a lot of negative stuff were being said about U2 when they won the Grammies last year - apparently some people were resentful that they were too big (and thus part of the establishment, they should've let some newer artists win, etc.)!

I think it's funny how people begin to turn up their noses on artists who go "mainstream". It's "cooler", I suppose, to say you loved this popular artist or that popular rock group - but only their earlier work (even though their songs aren't actually declining in quality). :)

So perhaps if there is an effect, it's on people who - in the grand scheme of U2 fan-ness, don't matter much anyway. I mean, for any large band there will always be a certain percentage of those who are actively against liking them, so maybe these are just those people - only using slightly altered arguments than would be used for other bands.
