    Rolling Stone picked U2 again?! Didn’t they do this last time U2 released a new album as well?

      No it was Béyonce. But I also find it curious that RS waits that long to pick a brand new album as their No 1 for the whole past year – it’ s an okay LP

      to my ears, but nothing more than that – maybe Bono bought that numero uno spot:-)
