    New Album Discussion 1 - Songs of..... - Unreasonable guitar album

    Chapter 25 (Wake Up Dead Man): They do talk about sort of the ultimate success of the tour and finding the songs there, but in the creative process it seems like they were all in agreement they had pushed a little too far. Mostly he just sounds downtrodden as he discusses it.

    New Album Discussion 1 - Songs of..... - Unreasonable guitar album

    I'm listening to Surrender on Spotify and just got to the Pop chapter. I mean I knew they weren't really fond of it but man Bono just sounds so bummed talking about it. We def aren't getting any support tour.

    New Album Discussion 1 - Songs of..... - Unreasonable guitar album

    t-shirts that require such delicate care suck. I have plenty of graphic non-concert tees that have lasted decades with minimal wear. Hell my U2 Slane shirt from 2001 lasted until just last year before finally getting a few holes here and there...nothing to do with the graphic. I mean there's...

    edit: Ok so cleaning up this multi-edited post of mine lol. It appears that U2.com was selling the Viking model which is smaller than the original 1991 model. Theflyshades.com does offer the Spartan which IS based on the original size. I wish that was the one U2.com had offered... I mean why...

    I mean... it's U2. They're not a startup. It's pretty crass. And the quality of their shirts are pretty much junk anyway so it's a double insult. My JTree 2017 tour shirt didn't last more than a couple of washes. Really lame for the $45 it cost. I also bought a pair of those $125 fly shades...

    New Album Discussion 1 - Songs of..... - Unreasonable guitar album

    Very hopeful this is the start of Pop getting a proper 30 year remaster/release/tour! I'm sure it won't since they don't seem to like their album (it's my favorite to be honest. Maybe not their best? But it has always occupied the #1 slot for me personally). And on the flip side of that...

    I listened to No Line on the Horizon right through tonight for the first time in about 10 years…

    Totally missed this, but yeah SOE honestly has been in steady rotation since it came out!

    I listened to No Line on the Horizon right through tonight for the first time in about 10 years…

    Moment of Surrender had a resurgence with me. I never really listened to it. Then, mid-40s... two kids... struggling with having trying to have my own life vs the big change that comes with kids (and combined with general career mid-life-crisis what-coulda-beens etc)... it really hit different...

    U2 Live From Sphere - Final Show SiriusXM stream

    This has been one of my biggest compalints of the last few albums. Songs will start with a great riff or intro that actually sounds like it might be the mythical "unreasonable guitar" album... and then it all fades into the BG as Bono's vocals come front and center. They don't sound like they're...

    U2 live

    Same here. Both our good but the pure blast of energy on the back side of Bono's story in OoC is just amazing.

    New Album Discussion 1 - Songs of..... - Unreasonable guitar album

    Honestly until this thread I had totally not thought about it in forever. I *certainly* don't think it's anything more than some notes/a few rough demos at most. I think it's certainly an idea though. Like it clearly would wrap things up nicely so Bono is probably like "ok our last album is...

    New Album Discussion 1 - Songs of..... - Unreasonable guitar album

    I know we're in pure speculation zone, but I cannot imagine them NOT using SOA as their swan song. Releasing it ahead of whatever this new album is going to be just b/c of Larry doesn't really make sense - especially for how long it's been cooking. I think they're definitely going to make sure...

    U2 at the Grammys

    That was, frankly, embarrassing. An edit? Jesus.

    I am *really* digging the vibe of this. Hope it's more in this direction! (I also loved The Blackout and, while I love SOE generally, it wasn't quite in that same vein)

    Zooropa 30th Anniversary

    Is it just gonna be the SD thing we already have but.... streamed? Probably not if that's the case.

    Zooropa 30th Anniversary

    $60 for a pretty standard re-issue? That's a no from me dawg. Same for a $45 t-shirt. The blue one is cool but... shit is getting just too expensive.

    U2 to Perform First Concerts at MSG Sphere in Las Vegas

    Got my off-the-waitlist text. Unfortunately not tons left for the good weekend dates. Couple of notes, to unlock the seats you have to enter the code BUT It's case sensitive The "code entry" form kept resetting as I was trying to type it in... so I just typed it into a notepad and copy pasted...

    U2 to Perform First Concerts at MSG Sphere in Las Vegas

    There was not a subscriber presale code we had to enter correct? I just had to enter my email associated with my U2.com account. Just want to make sure I was entering the correct fan club/Ultra ticket request.

    Surrender memoire setlist....

    Yeah I wish I could go but I'm guessing the waitlist was full anyway (I didn't see the email until 30 minutes after it arrived). I can't afford to travel to New York at the moment anyway but still...

    The Blackout is soooo good. Made me have some faith that they do have a little bit of it left in 'em!

    New Album Discussion 1 - Songs of..... - Unreasonable guitar album

    I really feel like every album SINCE Pop, Bono has mentioned it's some sort of messianic guitar album and it *never* is. Pop was the last great U2 "unreasonable guitar" record. Just some batshit awesome stuff on that. Also I'm ok with Songs of Ascent if it means they're retiring with it. It...
