That's a whole lot of people.  And AMAZING!  Can they keep track of how many times one person listens to it?  Because other than a few hours, it's been on repeat for me since last Tuesday.

I wonder how much play time the back catalogue is getting too, just had a look at the worldwide ITunes charts, there were 16 albums in the top 100 the other day, now there is only 3. The Singles 18 at number 70, AB at 76 and UABRS at 88. Suppose the hype was going to die off, hope we picked up some new blood on the way though :)

 

UPDATE - I could be wrong, it may just be UK chart, not worldwide, oh I'm to tired for proper figure hunting *yawns*

it is a O.K album nothing out from this world... U2 cannot make a Masterpiece again.. these guys need to get out from that Cloud and find a new one,, After "POP" u2 is over for me. I guess I could make them shine Again, I have exactly what U2 needs,, I have made 1400 new songs in 4  years, but by listing to james, the old good u2, dm, inxs, blues, etc. anyway... I guess that happens when you make that kind of money from 360 tour, and live in the USA, nothing agaist that, but you become some one else, not your self.

I know the back catalogue isn't getting too much playtime from me right now.  Too busy listening to the new. :P

Is anyone else struggling to get into this album? Particularly if you are a long time U2 fan? I can't put my finger on why it is the case, but normally after 3 or 4 listens to a new U2 album I can't get catchy lines and melodies out of my head. Not so with this album. Really struggling. :(

For me it takes at least 10-20 plays until I can start to make any firm opinions on a new album....i'm starting to get to that stage now, and verdict is very good, but it will take longer before I decide if very good becomes great.- And the real proof is if I am playing it in another 10,20, 25 years and enjoying just as much.

There are very few artists whose music endures

This one was immediate for me, a few stand out songs then others grew on me. I wanted something upbeat and brighter this time round and this hits the mark for me.

 

And loving Bono's vocals, singing my heart out especially on EBW :)
