U2: Not Linear, Relevant

A lot of talk about Time on the new U2 record "No Line on the Horizon". One of my favorite lines is from the title track:

"“Time is irrelevant, it’s not linear”
Then she put her tongue in my ear"

Earlier today I was thinking how it's been about 20 years since Rattle & Hum. And then I thought about how we're as far away from Rattle & Hum as Rattle & hum was from, say, Sgt. Pepper or Electric Ladyland or Zeppelin I.

This here tune "Breathe" is one of my very favorites from the new CD. A one song twister, borrowing from Dylan, but taking it to the place only U2 can, not bad for four old Irish dudes.
