You are one big hypocrite. If you knew how to look beyond the
superficial glitz and just focus in the music, you would have
appreciated the 90's U2. Bono's simply a better singer (note: I am
not equating singing with high-ptched screams) and U2 has written
incredible music yet you refuse to say so. It seems like you even go
to the point of equating "Holy Joe" with dirt...

Focusing on the music and not the supericial aspect means not starting
stupid debates in Wire about non-music aspects such as "looseness"
(breaking a hand in Washinton is loose, huh?) or even
"humility/arrogance." Oh well, the almight Rob Okorn bot is at it
