I’m about to reveal one of my deepest and darkest secrets: I like U2. No, I’m not being coy; I’m not secretly trying to tell you that I have a crush on you. I’m trying to say that I like one of the most mainstream bands on the face of the planet.
That said, just because I like U2 doesn’t mean that I like all of their music. I’m more old-school and prefer much of their older music, which seems to be the norm for people of my generation. I came across an article in Slate today which ranks U2’s albums from best to worst. I don’t know if it’s a generational thing or not, but I actually found myself agreeing with many of writer Eric Hynes’ opinions about U2’s music.
