"The last two records were very personal, with a kind of three piece at their heart, the primary colours of rock - bass, guitars and drum. But what we’re about now is of the same order as the transition that took us from The Joshua Tree to Achtung Baby."
- Bono, September 2008
The song 'I Threw A Brick Through A Window' is about not liking yourself. It's seeing our reflection in the window and wanting to smash it.
