"The band's desire to bring the whole PopMart extravaganza to this city following the siege, not scaling things back but giving it their all, makes it a favorite - Bono's voice issues included. "You got to give it away(!)""
"Every song is a gem. It reinvented U2 and took them into their best era. I love how it is both flippant and intense, with the title, cover, and even the musical influences masking the dark interior of love gone wrong and hypocrisy exposed."

In 1999, a bag holding personal papers and a laptop computer containing lyrics for the ATYCLB album was taken from Bono's car. Bono offered a reward of £2,000 for the return of the computer. An Irish man returned the laptop after having bought it for £300 thinking it was from a reputable source. He realised it was Bono's when he saw a picture of the singer's child Elijah Bob on the screen, prompting him to contact U2's management.
