Their entire new album sounds like they’re not even actually trying to write songs anymore, but soundtracks for teevee commercials selling corporate crappe.

    Used to be a massive U2 fan, not so much anymore due to declining quality of artistic output and dodgy tax-fuckery. Really, if you’re so concerned about the disadvantaged people in society, pay your fucking taxes.In full.In the country where you actually live.Where you were born and raised and went to school and used and still use services paid for via taxation. I get artists like Chumbawumba avoiding paying taxes,because they’re anarchists-they reject the state as a concept, full stop. But if you believe in the state as a concept, you gotta put your money where your mouth is.

    They always sounded like that…or pretentious clap trap as Bono masturbated into his microphone.

    Is this album the one that Apple bought from them? Of course it’s a fucken commercial! What did you expect?

    In other news, the fuckken Yankee fan’s fuckken Yankees appear dead as a doornail, having lost 4 of their last 5. I notice that ole Physioproffe hasn’t had much to say about them lately. A fair weather fan if there ever was one.

    I’ve just got round to listening to Songs of Innocence. Yes, it’s corporate pap.

    Joshua Tree, there was a good album. This one, not so much.
