“We just went, ‘Hold on a second – we’ve got to give ourselves a moment to think about this record and about how it relates to what’s going on in the world,’” the guitarist said.

I know most rockers start losing their edge as they get older, but compared to U2's first 2-3 albums the rest are about as dull as dishwater for the most part, musically and lyrically.
And Bono has become such an insufferable little git that I can't even listen to those 1st few albums any more.
