    Another one right up my alley. Bugs me to no end that between these two bands that arrived at about the same time, from about the same place, and with similar (at least early in their careers) sounds and influences, it was U2 that was ordained as "the next big thing" and ended up becoming so freakin' big while Bunnymen languished in relative obscurity. I just always felt and still do that Bunnymen was far superior. Great match-up.

    I was thinking to myself the other day that E&tBm, at their weakest, sound a little too much like U2. Otherwise, they're good.
