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

    This isn’t a particularly substantive contribution to the chat, but I do remember when I first got this album that for about a month I only liked the odd numbered tracks and then completely flipped and only like the even numbered tracks. Not being obsessive compulsive about, it just turned out...

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

    I’m a long way behind… are people really complaining about them putting out their b sides? Continuing something they started 18 months ago? Songs not available on streaming? What the actual fuck, you guys. Some people just don’t feel important if they aren’t complaining about u2 on the internet

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

    Last I will say on it because a question was asked then I’m done. Just that the standard for the American left is pretty centrist elsewhere. Even Biden’s healthcare stance is too far right for the right wing of other developed nations. Until someone can leave a hospital after a few days of...

    I didn’t read overtly, but I’m not surprised that the tone and context was interpreted that way. I find it interesting that Americans seem fixated on the ages of the candidates. Old people can be quite cogent and valuable. The issue in the country is the prevailing sentiment that puts them...

    Ooof. Comin’ in hot. I’m going to go get some popcorn.

    lol - no I’m not suggesting that. I mean that they probably were pushed back further than the otherwise would have been because of his surgeries - all of which seemed reasonable and necessary.

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

    7 years and no touring because of Larry. At their age, is it possible they are using this time to queue up lots and lots of work so that when they can tour they don’t have to start another 5 year cycle for the next album? They would be 70 or thereabouts by that stage. There have been so many...

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

    I know we don’t agree fully on the recent material, but I do believe they have found moments of magic in the last couple of albums. Little Things and Book of Your Heart stand up against most of their post-Pop outputs. I feel like they are spiritual cousins to the moodier offerings of this period...

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

    …and I think I enjoyed it? I experienced this with HtDAAB at about the 15 year mark as well. The disappointment of this being the culmination of 5 years work for the band was gone. I actually found myself liking little moments. Fills, melodies, sounds. Things that never really captured my...

    U2 Live From Sphere - Final Show SiriusXM stream

    This one sounds much better and cleaner. I can actually make out what Danny is playing in One. The little fill from the studio version. It sounds cool. Bono is a bit lower in the mix, and I’ve seen some people complain about that, but I actually think it is a positive sign for how an album...

    Apparently a much better source is doing the rounds. I will try and get a copy, but it’s late here. Hopefully it finds its way to this thread soon.

    3 Irishmen and a Dutchman Walk Into A Sphere - General Discussion Thread Part III

    Yeah - it sounds just a little flat as well. I imagine a lot of that is the compression and mono mixing. I think an Apple Music/spotify release may help.

    Apple Music is the easiest to add things to. Now that I’ve got the full cloud library experience I just need to add it on a laptop and upload to my cloud, with iTunes Match switched off.

    U2 Live From Sphere - Final Show SiriusXM stream

    Ooft. They did say it will be available on other platforms soon. I imagine their deal to have the channel comes with some sort of exclusivity/pre-release rights. My only issue is they don’t release shows from every tour and make them available to purchase on vinyl.

    I would normally rip it and send it around broken up into tracks, but it’s 2:21am here. If someone does, please send me a link

    https://mysteriousdays.mixlr.com/recordings/2398147 Seems like it’s mixed in mono on this page, so something better will come along, but here is the interview and show.

    Hi all, Given the tour is over I thought it best to have this with the other U2 news/releases on topic forum. Discuss the interview and show here. News is both are live and available for streaming to account holders. No news yet on other platforms or less legal means of obtaining…

    3 Irishmen and a Dutchman Walk Into A Sphere - General Discussion Thread Part III

    For a band that talks so much about their live shows being better than their albums they are pretty bad at officially releasing live music. Reckon this will go on the website as a streaming option for subscribers and maybe released on cassette as next years gift.

    I’m sure someone will rip it, and if I get hold of it I’ll distribute, but I suppose it might actually be a little harder to find the rip these days. 15 years ago it’d be from page of the pirate bay.

    I actually have no idea how this will be circulated after the fact. There were certain channels to get official stuff back in the day, but the world has changed and U2’s popularity means that this might be hard to actually get hold of

    Why would we be offended? It’s your take, that’s fine. I’m not so insecure that I feel as though everyone has to agree with me, but don’t assume everyone else is so insecure that you having that opinion affects them at all.
