Was it just me but was their first single `Curious' the biggest U2 ripoff 
ever. The video reminded me of U2's video for `Even better than the real 
thing'. Sandbox singer's voice was sung through some special effect like 
Bono's voice for `The Fly'. And well the song `Curious' itself sounded 
like any other three-chord U2 composition. Don't get me wrong, I like 
U2,  but `Curious' was just a too blatant ripoff for me.
