There is something so incredible about the interplay between the band members and their instruments in this gem! I will always recall driving before dawn from San Luis Obispo and rolling in to Sequoia and then on to Yosemite N.P. with my brother in the early summer of '88 with some good psychedelics in our brainpans and this album jamming several times a day in the stereo. Within a month, I knew, I was bound for at least a year in Shizuoka, but I wanted to soak up all of God's Country that I could before then. For both of us, there could be no better soundtrack for such visual splendor! To this day, and for all eternity, this song touches my heart like a wild spirit.

My wife and I were living in Osaka Prefecture, on the border between Kyoto and Osaka, when her brother in law sent us this CD.  It compelled me to go to the electronics district in Osaka to buy something to play it on (this was the early days of CDs and I was a laggard). Due both to the brilliance of the music and the sense of isolation that was more than just a sense, this album plus Blood on the Tracks have the allure of another age that is called forth when I hear anything from this album.

Too much U2 on here, plus Bob Dylan, Neil Young, David Bowie, The Cure, plus the other usual RP suspects - don't get me wrong, I have albums by them all, however, there is an undeniable saturation of these acts on RP.  I just don't think there's any excuse for it with all of the thousands of suggestions listeners make here, and the hundreds of artists that only get played every now and then; I think there could be a lot less of these aforementioned artists played on here, and a lot more of others. Yeah, granted, U2 have about a hundred albums to choose from, (joking of course) but isn't that a bit hypocritical of the "only 3 recommendations per artist" for listeners?   Just my thoughts, but I've been listening every day, day and night to RP, for many years now, and I'm a supporter, I personally would like to hear them less, and others a lot more.

Not the biggest fan, either.  Although I do love the War album.  That is a terrific release.

If you haven't seen this summers' Joshua Tree tour yet I strongly recommend  it; one of the best stadium visual and musical experiences I've seen.

No one likes quinoa - anyone who says they do is a filthy, patchouli-soaked, hula-hoopin', drum-circlin', Birkenstock-wearin' liar!  Well, I guess the only people who do like it are people who sell it at grossly inflated prices or folks who use the word when they're playing Scrabble, but no one likes eating quinoa.
This is quite an enjoyable tune to me.

 
Hilarious.  Something to think about next time quinoa is on the menu.  

As for Utah, the drives are indeed beautiful.  Better yet, hike the parks and canyons.  

Some folks like to dump on people in Utah, in particular Mormons.  From my perspective, any jurisdiction that takes a negative view of alcohol is an enlightened jurisdiction.

Love love. U2 suffers the fate of almost all musicians who hit the huge-time as they do any more - scorn and ridicule. Whatev. See you guys in Philly in June, playing this song and the whole album! Thanks for continuing to be a U2 fan Bill.

I was 22 when I first traveled through that magnificent state. I specifically queued this song to match my drive along the Colorado River during the stretch to Moab. There may have been an illicit substance involved. 
 
Camped on some BLM land near Moab last spring for the first time and I took that drive along the Colorado, killer. And this would've have been a great disc to listen to on that drive.
