More Than 11 Songs

Don Miller offers intriguing insight into the creative process a superband (in this case, U2) must enter into when putting an album together. For example...
Go ahead and speak your spiritual themes, but don’t get too Christian. It’s uncool. Really uncool. Not that you care but you do. Walk the line between expressing the powerful redemptive themes in your work and translating those themes to a western audience that puts those themes in the box of absurd anti-science and judgmental condemnation. Make people who know Jesus think you’re talking about Jesus but don’t talk about Jesus. And do this with a clean conscious. And mean what you sing.
I downloaded No Line on the Horizon last night, but haven't listened to all of it yet. So far, it's worth the $3.99 was charging.
