It’s true and I’m not happy.

There was a time, during the 1980s, during which I enjoyed the music of U2, but I’ve done everything within my power to avoid and ignore Bono and his smug attempts at sainthood for the past 2 decades; yet here he is on my phone! Is there someway that we can all send him pictures of our unhappy faces?

Don’t get me wrong…

U2 were good in the days when it was about producing quality music with social and political meaning but I don’t feel that’s the case now.


Still, maybe I’ll give the free album a listen – I may be wrong and it’s always good to be open-minded!


Just don’t like that this has appeared on my phone without me asking to download it; free or not!

(Not to be taken too seriously)


Now, I’m strangely in the mood to download all of their earlier albums! Damn, this unsubtle marketing ploy has worked it’s magic on my vulnerable mind.
