the inner U2
I read a great article in Time about how U2 functions as a group. Bono and the Edge are the visionaries, if you will, and The bassist and drummer ground the group. The only reason the two subgroups don't kill each is other is because they're so damn good together.

Glad I found this post!  And I agree.  Everyone lists The Joshua Tree as the best U2 album, but I think it was simply a career-making album.  Achtung Baby was better in my opinion.  They were excellent on SNL Saturday. I can't believe they just kep playing!

I've been a U2 fan since the beginning and have all of their albums up until Achtung Baby. I never bothered to buy anymore because I knew this was as good as it was going to get. I have over three hundred CD's in my music collection, but there's only a handful that I can listen to every song. Achtung Baby is on the top of that list.

There's a blogger here called Holy Grail that would really like this post. Leave her a comment in her journal blog telling her about it. It may seem crass, but she won't take it like that.
