U2 – ‘The Fly’ (Song 12 of 16)

31 Oct

Listening to this song and waiting for something interesting to happen is like waiting for a bus that when it arrives says ‘out of service’ on it. It’s a frustrating experience to say the least, with Bono’s heavy breathing being bolstered by a lethargic beat and guitary noise that doesn’t really go anywhere. I suppose every successful band has to get through the stage in the career whereby critics have rubbed out so many sperm cells over their previous work that they believe simply entering a recording studio gives them the right to release something, no matter how pointless it may be. It’s U2. It sucks. Let’s move on.
