U2 Embraces the Roots of Rock, The Los Angeles Times

"Nobody's gonna know Bono as well as I do, and I tell you he's certainly neither all good nor all bad," Edge said. "But people have this strange idea of him as a perfect human being, and now they react in shock and horror when they see that he's much like anyone else.

Reborn in the USA, Newsday

"A lot of Irish folk songs were dealing with similar issues that the blues were dealing with," Clayton said. "So it feels like, although we've been looking for our paradise for a long time, it's been under our noses -- something already in us from our own Irish history."

Band of Gold, Premiere

[Phil] Joanou also previews the band at Elvis's grave and U2 staggering through Graceland's Hall of Gold Records, gawking at the profusion of glittering discs covering the walls. "Look. Look at Bono's face," he urges. "God! U2 has a few platinum albums and is currently one of the biggest bands in the world. Yet walking through there must put things in perspective."
