My copy is already reserved - i really hope they have gone back to the style they were doing in the 80's - there stuff over the last 10 years has been so bland, where did the guitars go?

I really doubt they can go back to their early style but I hope they get close. I was listening to U2 today, specially 2 songs, very underrated by the way and thank God, Electrical Storm("you are in my mind all of the time, I know that?s not enough"....how much love you have to feel to say that!!!!???) and The Ground Beneath Her feet(that song makes me feel like I?m in love even if I?m not).

So the new album is dropping November, anyone remember when the single is coming out in September. I'm pumped I'm guessing Vertigo is the first new single, still no name for the album yet. But ya November should be a good  month.


Guns & Who is what I'll be thinking, yes I'm a huge G & R fan but U2 can fill my appetite, 4 years for this new baby.

6 years and waiting for GNR (starting at 1999)

Hopefully they tour a bit before Christmas or just one odd show.

So ya post your thoughts on U2 here haha

i cant wait, i hope its good cuz "All That You Cant Leave Behind" was their first good album since Achtung Baby in my opinion. I hope this one is good, does anyone know when the single comes out? I love "The Joshua Tree" and "Unforgettable Fire" my fave songs are "With or Without You", "Bad", "One" and "In A Little While" The Edge is great he as such a unique sound, and Bono is an amazing singer.

Besides GNR, U2 is the best rock & roll band to come out over the past 25 years. They are great! It's like fine red wine, they get better with age.

Live they are not so good anymore. I saw them during their last leg in 2001 and Bono sounded awful, but what the hell? they managed to put a good show anyway.

As for the new album, yeah..I'm definitely looking forward to it. U2 albums are always groundbreaking. They always deliver ok

U2 can definitely quench my Axl N?Roses thirst...I love them, my favorite album is The Unforgettable Fire and one of my favorite song is the underrated(thank God) The Ground Beneath Her Feet, like I said once, that song makes me feel like I?m in love even if I?m not.

I will definitely be picking up this album once it has hit the shelves.  I am wondering, if a copy of the album was legitably stolen, or was that simply annouced to hype up the release of this new cd?  Because wouldn't the stolen album already be uploaded and shared by now??  Hmmm... could I be onto something?  Do you sense a conspiracy?

I don?t have the chords but I?m sure you can get them online. Anyway, do you know that the lyrics tot he song are from a book by author Salman Rushdie, his book has the same name as the song...I want to read it, and also watch the movie the song is a soundtrack for.

As for the conspiracy theory Eebss mentioned, I doubt it, U2 doesn?t need to hype up an album at all...they just announce it and the world goes nuts.

2004 has been a pretty good album year so far and it probably won't get worse thanks to U2.  Cool

I read that they covered Kraftwerk's "Neon Lights" for the new single.  Cheesy

god i hate U2...i didn't just come here to complain, sorry to hate on them but im just curious....

Do you like Bono?! I mean don't you think he's sort of a tool? To me he is much worse than Scott Stapp, he seems like the world's biggest self righteous, wimpy, non-rock star douchebag.  Just wanted to know what everyone else thought of him.

Great lyricist, great singer, great performer. One of the few singers who can pull of a stadium show.

I saw U2 during the Elevation tour back whenever that was, and Bono was amazing.  He had so much charisma and had the crowd laughing and cheering with him.  Not to mention, he's got an amazing and unique voice.

Here's my problem with U2: they put out amazing singles, but their albums are often very slow and boring overall.  The first U2 album I bought was The Joshua Tree - it's supposed to be one of their best albums, so I figure I'll give it a try.  The first three songs - the singles, "Where The Streets Have No Name", "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For", "With Or Without You" - are all first-rate.  But the rest of the album seemed mediocre.  There was nothing that really grabbed my attention.  Yeah, "Bullet The Blue Sky" had a different sound, but that didn't make it a good song.  The only one I really liked was "Exit"...that was good.  But the rest was just so SLOW and BORING.

After I went to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and saw the Under The Blood Red Sky exhibit there, I thought maybe I'd give U2 another chance.   So I bought their greatest hits 1980-1990.  It was AMAZING.  All the songs were top-notch, and I listened to it over and over again for ages.  But whenever I hear my brother (who's a big U2 fan) listening to All That You Can't Leave Behind, I can't help but think how weak the rest of the songs are compared to the first four.

When I said this to these guys who were talking about U2, they tell me, "That's because not every band has to be like Skid Row."  But what can I say, I like the big arena rock.  And I like soft stuff too, like Neil Young's acoustic stuff and Bruce Springsteen's "Nebraska" album.  But U2's albums are just...boring.

Bottom line: My advice to starting U2 fans is to buy the greatest hits albums and stick with that.

U2 Drops The 'Bomb' In November
 
The long-awaited new U2 album has a confirmed name: "How To Dismantle an Atomic Bomb." As previously reported, the 11-track set will be released Nov. 23 via Interscope. First single "Vertigo" will hit U.S. radio outlets on Sept. 24, while a commercial single is due Nov. 8 internationally.

The album name lives up to its early description by author/U2 friend Neil McCormick in Ireland's Hot Press magazine: "an interesting title, an interesting philosophical idea as a title, and quite a difficult title."

"Atomic Bomb" is the follow-up to 2000's "All That You Can't Leave Behind," which has sold more than 4 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. A world tour is expected to launch early next year.

As reported yesterday, U2 is among the nominees for the 2005 induction class of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The one thing that bothers me is that it's been a long time since their last album, and all they have is 11 songs. no
But I do Like the title of the Album. ok

Yeah 11 tracks is not a lot...I was kinda surprised too. But it was the same for "All That You Can't Leave Behind"...
