Anyone hear this yet? I personally think the entire album is excellent. Vertigo is actually one of the weaker tracks and that says a lot.

You're listening to the album before it's released?! Blasphemy! [/Lars]

I'm holding out until the 23rd....I love that 'new CD' experience. U2 is the only band I'm willing to wait this long for, and I have a whole morning planned of driving around and listening to the disc.



Agent: Tell you what, sir. From now on, you'll be, uh, Homer Thompson at Terror Lake. Let's just practise a bit, hmm? When I say, "Hello, Mr. Thompson," you'll say, "Hi."
Homer: Check.
Agent: Hello, Mr. Thompson.
Homer: [stares blankly]
Agent: Remember now, your name is Homer Thompson.
Homer: I gotcha.
Agent: Hello, Mr. Thompson.
Homer: [stares blankly]
[A long time later]
Agent: [sighs in frustration] Now, when I say, "Hello, Mr. Thompson," and press down on your foot, you smile and nod.
Homer: No problem.
Agent: Hello, Mr. Thompson! [stomps on Homer's foot a few times]
Homer: [stares blankly then says to other agent] I think he's talking to you.....

Bono is cool like that. He said he doesn't mind fans downloading his album as long as we don't profit from it.

They played the album, in its entirety on the radio here in ST Louis last weekend. It is outstanding. I havent bought a new CD in a long, long time, but I plan on getting this one.

U2 just utterly kicked ass on SNL last night. They played Vertigo, Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own (which was the first time I've heard it, and it sounded amazing), and then in a nice touch, they played I Will Follow over the closing credits. Apparently they played a couple more songs after the show went off the air, too. Definitely the highlight of a mediocre episode (and season, frankly) of Saturday Night Live.

    U2log.com was lucky enough to be invited to the K-Rock listening party, which was held at Sony Studios at 54th and 10th in New York City this evening. We will have a full report with some photos of the band taken outside Sony Studios soon.

    At the conclusion of the listening party, a member of U2ís management team pulled us aside and asked us to tell everyone whom we know (thatís you!) to be at Empire Fulton Ferry State Park at 3 pm tomorrow (Nov. 22) for a 30-minute concert by U2.

    You have your official orders! Be there or miss something very special.

    There will be no concert at Washington Square Park. It was the original location for the event, but on review they decided the area was too busy and not large enough to house the number of people expected at the show.

    One final piece of great, official news is tickets are not required for this event.

Now that the album's officially out, anyone have any comments about it?

I think it's a fantastic disc. Love and Peace Or Else and Sometimes.... are instant classics, and All Because Of You sounds like early U2 mixed in with a garage band.



You know, first of all, we are doing this for her, okay? Because neither one of us wants to get divorced. And second-of-ly, I know you're the big marriage expert... Oh, I'm sorry, I forgot. Your wife is dead.

...I'm sorry, that was 100% inappropriate, and I do apologize profusely...I'm...oh...

I picked this up on iTunes on Tuesdy, and burnt it for our car trip to Northern California. We played it through two times in a row - and it would have been three times except that it was really obvious when it looped around.

Vertigo is the first song on the disc, and while I really liked it, I'm already burnt on it. Luckily, the other 10 songs are good.

Nothing really stood out, but I like every track on the disc. I think the last track is probably going to grate on me at some point though.

I've been able to listen to this a couple of times through in the car, and it's coming with me on my vacation.

The song that strikes me the most is "City of Blinding Lights." It's the one that stays in my head for most of the day. "Miracle Drug" and "Crumbs from Your Table" are also fantastic songs.

I haven't had a chance to watch the bonus DVD yet.

Does anyone know if the new CD might signal an upcoming tour?

My mother was telling me a month ago that they already said they would be touring the world again most of next year.
Knowing U2 they start out in the States/Canada then do Europe, Asia/Australia and repeat that a few times.

They announced some vague tour plans to Billboard.com a few weeks back: North American tour starts in Fla on March 1, they'll play about 35 U.S. arena shows, then 30 European stadium dates, then back for roughly 35 more North American shows, then Japan & Australia.

I've finally had time to listen to it a couple of times through ... my question is now this: how does this band keep making great music? ... Just a great piece of work. I expect mucho Grammy noms for this one.

I'll be surprised is "Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own" isn't a single. I personally think this is their best song since "One".





Uh ... Happy Yuletide or something ...
