  1. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    Not all the way through yet, but so far I think it's better than NLOTH and SOI.
  2. U2 songs of experience your possible setlist

    Reckon you can strike out The Fly for a while, until this lawsuit silliness is out the way. As for Walk On, I reckon it's knocked Acrobat off the Never Going To Be Played perch.
  3. This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    I grabbed the leaked NLOTH back in 2009, but I had already preordered the deluxe boxset so I was just getting in early. This time I've avoided as many "spoilers" as I can, want to listen to the whole thing on Friday. In anticipation for it I've listened to SOI twice this week, which is probably more than I've listened to it in the last 3 years.
  4. #BoycottSoETour2018

    Is this like the 2009 boycott when logins weren't working on the NLOTH themed website or is it something completely new?
  5. Achtung Baby: why?

    I only became aware of U2 in the very late '80s when Rattle and Hum songs were getting airplay. The only U2 songs I knew of were Desire and All I Want Is You. Didn't have an opinion either way on Desire, but quite liked AIWIY. Fast forward a couple of years and the Top 5 charts had listed "U2 - The Fly". Although I hadn't heard the song yet, I thought "Cool, U2 are back". And all of this is from the interest from one song from the previous album. I remember seeing the video for the first time, quite liked the song but thought the Fly-Eye sunglasses were really weird (although 10-15 years later and those style of sunglasses were being worn by the likes of David Beckham and Britney Spears, proving again U2 were ahead of their time). Then along came Mysterious Ways, which I loved. When a band cranks out three good/great songs in a row, spanned across two albums and in separate decades, it's a good sign. Didn't warm to One initially, and EBTTRT took a while, although I think they're great now. I remember the controversy of the nude shot in the album sleeve, with news stories on TV of music shops in the US drawing musical notes in permanent marker over the nude bits. When I was starting to like their songs and wanted to get the album, I wasn't sure about buying an album with a naked man in the sleeve (I was only 14 at the time) and was going to get a friend at school to copy his brother's CD for me. But friends of my mum were going overseas where tapes and CD's were cheaper and I gave them some cash to get Achtung Baby for me. When I got it, turns out the image had already been censored anyway. Still remember hearing Zoo Station for the first time, I thought they were saying "Gestation". Not long after this I got Rattle and Hum (I was oblivious to the backlash, so just loved the album on it's own merits), my friend at school copied The Joshua Tree for me, and I scored Under A Blood Red Sky at the markets. By the time Zooropa came out I considered myself to be a fan. So if it hadn't been for Achtung Baby, I might never have become a U2 fan.

  10. What U2 Song Can Make You Cry?

    Nice thread but is this news and rumours? Anyway, live versions of One Tree Hill get me.
