I like U2 about as much

I wonder if you are familiar with some of their older stuff. I was a bigger fan in the 80’s and then their music was still not technically strong, but passionate, raw and bohemian. Kinda the way people talk about Dylan – his voice is almost silly and his music can be banal, but he manages to sing what people are feeling.

U2’s music in the 80’s had more of the unspeakable quality – Boy, War, Unforgettable Fire. I admit I didn’t follow them as much when I ran out of money and got married (in reverse order) in the 90’s .
