Comment: I’ve made this point time after time, since Songs Of Experience is so much better than Songs Of Innocence and, god knows, No Line On The Horizon, where does Rolling Stone go with their review? Fricke’s nauseating review (“If experience has taught U2 anything, it is that a great new song can still feel like the first day of the rest of your life”) manages to both overestimate and underestimate the album, if Experience is a 4.5 star review, how is the dreadful Innocence a 5 star review: they are not to be trusted.
