John Lennon, Bosnia, and Dolores' granddad

Their first album was a knockout and their second at least sounded great. For their third, they danced right into the pop bear trap: politics. But "Everybody Else Is Doing It" enchanted because it was abstract; "No Need to Argue"'s big problem was that it was too concrete. Here dreamy Dolores has become top-of-the-hill full-of-herself wannabe-girl-Bono Dolores, and the songs suffer the consequences. "Joe" is pretty, "Forever Yellow Skies" shines, "The Rebels" might be great, and "Bosnia" is positively haunting--but for every four gems like these, they give us something like "I Shot John Lennon," which is actually offensive in its pompousness. If it was their sophomore effort, they might be in trouble. But if it was their sophomore effort, it would be a little easier to forgive, too.
