Ok, so this album is 3 years old which by industry standards is fairly old. I bought it right about the time it came out but was not really all that impressed with it. Last year (or maybe it was earlier this year) when I was on another U2 kick, I tried listening to it again and once again, was not very impressed. About a week ago, I popped it into my car stereo to give it another try.
Oddly enough, I actually fell in love with it. So here are some interesting tidbits about it.
