Alexa, Play the U2 Experience on Amazon Nov 29 & 30


Recommended Posts

Nope...NOT DOING IT. I have been debating Chewy.com for MONTHS, almost a year! I am not about to enter into ANOTHER RABBIT HOLE with Amazon. NOTHING IS EVER FREE. EVEN THE AIR WE BREATHE NOW. Taxes fall upon the babies the moment they take their first breath in the USA. I learned long ago, freedom is not free. Now, you cannot even stand in front of the magazine stands and sift through to determine if you would like to BUY the magazine, in THIS CASE, Amazon is the NEWSTAND, The EXPERIENCE that article. Sure give me a dollar and I will let you peak. Reminds of the mags kept the counter...Since the owner of Amazon is the richest man in the world, I am no way getting on that "band wagon". KEEP YOUR FREAKING DOLLAR! BOZO-BEZOS, THE RICHEST MAN IN THE WORLD OVER $100 BILLION FREAKING DOLLARS. TAKE A HIKE DUDE DON'T LET DOOR HIT YOU IN ASS.

It should be free: It begins at 6:00 PM ET and will continue until the album is officially released on Friday. Amazon customers in the U.S., U.K., Germany and Austria will be able to access the c

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Sounds great! They should have a Sirius/XM Radio Channel

It is fantastic.  Nothing really revolutionary in terms of technology on delivery but a nice mix of songs spanning the career and great interview pieces.  It is what us SiriusXM subscribers have enjoyed with Pearl Jam, Tom Petty, Springsteen and Beatles channels. and would kill for a U2 channel  If you have Echo products it is a good introduction to voice empowered on demand music which does include Pandora and other free apps but it is indeed best used if you are a Prime customer.  I have listened to probably 4 to 5 hours of it and today at work I am getting to a section that I did hear last night so my guess is that it is probably somewhere between 6 to 8 hours or content that they are going to run about 3 times.  The only thing I have heard that is "Unreleased" is the album version of The Little Things.  Although I have a bucket full of CDs arriving tomorrow I am sure I will stay up to midnight and stream the album the second they add it to the library.  Also hopeful maybe they will play it in full say at 11pm leading into the release.

I've been streaming it over my Samsung Note last night and this morning over Sprint network without any major issues. Only had a couple of times that it skipped backwards though that was prob more of the cell network I think than anything else.  Haven't tried it yet from the computer yet

You don't have to sign up for any free trials! You just need an amazon.com account (which is free) and say "No Thanks" for the trial.

Correct, I just accessed it via my amazon account.....no prime or paid account needed!

Anyone else experiencing multiple skips in the songs and commentary?  Its been happening repeatedly to me (listening on my phone thru the Amazon music app), it keeps cutting off songs and jumping to other songs.   Maybe a streaming problem?

Yes... That's why I came here to see if anyone else is having the same "experience" that I am. I am listening on my desktop computer. It cuts off songs midstream and switches to another song. I was trying to figure out if it is intentional or not. Whatever is causing it, it's annoying.

It's SOOOOO Annoying. I tweeted to AmazonMusic about it. 

I'm on FIOS so it's not a slow internet connection issue.

It almost sounds like there is a drunken monkey at the controls.  I was loving it earlier this morning, but now its getting too annoying.
