60. Been listening to them since '81
and Vertigo is in my CD right now. It is a great album. And the poster that said that the song really doesn't fit the album is correct. The other songs all have the emotion and ephemeral feel that something like the Unforgettable Fire had. I love the song "Miracle Drug." It's just awesome. And as far as overexposure goes, my God they are U2. Whatever they do they create publicity and music still is a business so they did an iPod spot for no money. Big deal! These guys are class acts and nothing like the primadonna princes and princesses we have nowadays. It's a great album, period.
