Look, I've read 'Killing Bono'(US Version), McCormick's saga of just missing the Musical Stardom boat by inches. I'm sorry to say, I don't think it was a fluke that he never cracked the charts; never got a record deal. On 'Mortal Coil', it becomes evident that while Neil's lyricism may be passable, (when not completely self absorbed), his tinny and tiny voice can't shoulder the burden his overproduced tracks demand. The musical arrangement is a bit trite and lacks any true vision or invention. It's kind of, well, pat. I know, I know, "but Bono said it was good". Yeah, and there's a bridge in Brooklyn I like you to have a look at. It's called throwing a bone to an old chum, and Bono is very guilty in this case. McCormick may have a way with the pen, but he is not, nor should ever be confused with, a musician. If he wanted to crack the charts so badly, he should have ghost written, not Ghost Walked. Stick to the pen, pal.
