    My U2 Vinyl Collection

    Never played any of this vinyl - I would if I had a decent player but unless I knew it was correctly set up, I don’t think I’d dare. I have a few more to the collection since this picture. May have to update!

    This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    Listening to this album constantly since Saturday and I'm really pleased to say I love it. The end.

    This SOE is shaping up to be a gem

    I’m going to stand by what I said, I think it’s a great album and it may not be better but I think it’s sitting with their stronger stuff of the last 20 years. Production wise, I’m loving the sonicness. I’m loving the melodies, especially the vocal parts on the chorus parts. I think there are elements of fun and seriousness that are juxtaposed cleverly. One of my favourite tracks from htdaab was fast cars... kind of similar to some of the expressions here. A bit like baby face on Zooropa. I’m going to enjoy listening to this and exploring it with a smile as opposed to a cynical frown! It is what it is. For me anyway...

    Okay, Okay we're on the same page :).... Now, back to THIS album... will these songs stand up against any of the aforementioned in our previous conversation...? you'll have to give me at least a week, but I sincerely think there will be moments that do... Definitely not the Refu-Jesus line but others, certainly. Keep me posted!

    Since you put it like that... let's have a think...? 13 songs that could be picked since AB that would be better than AB on an album if released now... including SOE... Zooropa Numb Lemon Stay The First Time ... that's just off one album... Can't be done!!

    But you can't replicate anything that has been or happened in the past as everything is completely unique, even ,my opinion of this album and all past albums I have ever heard. I've just finished it for the first time and it's going on again. It's definitely better than the last two albums in my opinion upon first listen. Now I just have to convince myself it goes further into the back catalogue.

    I competently agree. If it is TRUE then it must be right what ever the media. I feel this is a true album.

    No, you're absolutely right. It's not the best thing since Achtung Baby! That's the beer, anticipation and the will for it to be the best album in the world talking. But excusing my excitement to join in with the celebration, which I've missed, I love the groove of the album and the uplifting energy. Previous comment redacted. (Still enjoying the album though and it could be the best since...)

    Listening tonight for the first time since my pre-order didn't arrive in time... still hasn't but couldn't wait any longer. I've not even finished it yet, and already it's the best thing I've heard since... maybe Achtung Baby! Wow... that is a bold statement! I'll commit by the end, I'm sure!

    Collector Tickets Arrived?

    That's good to hear that they haven't been sent yet. I can relax a bit. Thank you for getting back to me. Can't wait for Twickenham! Although I hope there aren't any issues getting in, like at the O2 where I missed the intro to the show! Cheers guys, Mike
