What do I think about U2's Achtung Baby? I don't think you are going to like this...

The opening track, Zoo Station should have been left off this album. It's marginally better than the rest and, frankly, only draws attention to their simplistic banality. Even Better Than the Real Thing is simply terrible. That's it, no further explanation needed. Track five, Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses sounds like aural herpes.

Track 6, So Cruel sounds just like a troupe of clowns honking away in their clown car going around and around the circus ring with no hope of ever stopping and I can't believe it was supposed to. Call it an unfortunate accident or something. Sticking my fingers in my ears made Mysterious Ways sound a whole lot better, but not as much as putting an axe through my CD player. Say track nine, Tryin' to Throw Your Arms Around the World three times into the mirror and U2 will appear behind you to take you away from all this miserable shite. Do it. It's your only hope - the track sounds like a pre-teen violinist playing scales over and over in some desperate attempt to make music, tears running down their chubby cheeks with every screech throughout.

In fact, I'm scared U2 will reproduce and foist a new generation of crud on us.
