1) if Pop wasn't by U2 would you like it? After being very honest with
myself, I have decided that if Pop wasn't a U2 CD, I would not have
it the time of day. I only listened to it continuously (and grew to love
it) because it was U2. If it was anyone else, I would say it was crap
techno, and I didn't like it at all. Dont get me wrong - I think it is
brilliant - but I wonder why my real reasons for thinking this are.

Yeah. Ok I wouldn't of bought it when it first came out but eventually I
would have.

2) Do we really want an official greatest hits? I usually associate
greatest hits CDs with 'has been' bands that can't sell that many CDs
anymore. Real fans have all U2's greatest hits anyway - isn't the whole
thing just too commercial? IF they release it just before christmas -
ideal christmas gift for music lovers - it will confirm my belief.
U2, no - dont do it!

Not all bands that put out greatest hits end there. Ok I admit I don't
like the idea of the greatest hits either but maybe the record company
is telling them to do so. Who knows, maybe they really are leaving us,
lets hope not though. I'm saying it's not the end of the world if they
do this.
