Oh come on U2

 

We are talking about an album that will be 60-70 minutes long. You could have built several hospitals, schools or tower blocks in the time used up making album.

 

If ordinary love & Invisible are typical of the tracks on the too long awaited album then it's going to be a massive let down once again and U2 will sell even fewer albums than the last offering. The sound on the last 2 singles are shockingly bad and little more than cheesy lightweight pop tunes.

Just how much longer do we have to wait before you finish and release the forthcoming album?


 


In the time it has taken doing so you could have built several schools, hospitals or tower blocks. If the new material is worth the wait I will be amazed to be honest and I predict it will have 11-12 tracks made up of more cryptic, meaningless waffle that say nothing about anything important.


 


As for the new singles recently issued "Ordinary day" & "Invisible" what on earth???


 


Little more than lightweight, cheesy pop tunes fit for children


 


Same old guitar riffs...twang twang guitar (yawn)


 


Lazy pitter patter drums with the bass drum pushed into the far distance


 


Bono spouting gibberish


 


Tracks far too short


 


How they can say they are getting back to their punk roots and make pointless music like this is getting beyond a joke now


 


But hey we may be surprised, maybe the new album will be unlike both new singles (hopefully)

I am in agreement. The songs on the album need to be a few notches higher than Invisible if U2 are to have a commercially successful album. It is surprising  how most people seem to be so so excited about Invisible??? It is a good song but let's be honest it is not epic, breaking new sounds, challenging or taking us to new levels.

 

As a fan, compare how you may have felt when you first heard "The Fly" or "One"? I think the release of that album in 1991 is comparable to the leap that U2 need to make now. Perhaps that is why they know the album isn't ready.

 

Maybe as an older fan I am seeking something deeper than the two (albeit good) tunes we have at the moment. 

 

There are two options

1) Release an average albuim - will be loved by the fans as new tunes and tours arise but it will not be a significant commercial success.

 

2) U2 challenge themselves and go away to either "reinvent themselves" or "have another baby".  

 

They are at a critical point in their career. I advocate looking forward, but sometimes we can only move ahead if we understand how we overcame similar challenges in the past. In that respect, U2 were at the point of being irrelevant (in the eyes of the media) at the end of the Rattle and Hum period. This pushed them to release a successful and artistically challenging album in 1991.

 

I hope that they can do it again.
