  1. It's not rare but it is a bit pricey, and from what I've seen in record shops and fairs very rare in good condition. There are HQ lossless rips doing the rounds, but speaking as a collector, I'd much rather a new copy of my own. The remixes themselves are excellent with unique vocal tracks and extra production compared to the edited releases on the singles. I'd agree with previous comments that some remixes fail to hit the mark, but there have, to be fair, been superb - and popular - remixes down the years. I'm very pleased with this I must say, and would be glad to join the queue if it was an

  2. Were you here when the website got updated for NLOTH and users had trouble logging in? It was like they thought Larry was plugging and unplugging ethernet cables while Edge was coding.

  3. Its common knowledge. Where do you get your information from? Do you really think the four of them sit around the table at dinner, and decide where they want to tour, which cities they want to go to, whether its stadiums or arenas, how many nights, and then after all that, they work out how much they need to price the tickets so they can make a profit or break even? Of course not. It's completely out of the bands control. They signed a deal with LiveNation giving them all the rights for their tours, look it up. LiveNation are the ones who work out where they're going to tour, how many nights a

  4. Totally get that. I love the vinyl but one of the first things I'll do is get UHQ FLAC rips off the vinyl for the car. What I would say about the mp3s on u2.com is that they are proper 320kbps versions. I really struggle to determine any difference between 320 and 16-bit FLAC. But l'd always pick the lossless to be on the safe side. Hopefully u2.com will post the best available quality.

  5. Not to belabor the point, IMHO, this would have been an ideal RSD/Black Friday release. I kind of wish it had been done that way. The songs collected for this gift, in and of themselves, are completely fine. Are they my favorite ever? No, but not every annual gift is going to please every person. Also, someone high in the U2 hierarchy seems to think there is unlimited desire for remixes among the U2 fanbase - I really wish they would revisit this opinion because I suspect, if they actually canvassed our opinions, they would be shocked to discover that we collectively want remixes less tha

  6. Thanks buddy. I've had that handle years now. Catchier than the real name! MacCurtain Street was a home from home. Can trace nearly all my early U2 vinyl to Leeside, and every cassette bootleg to the place upstairs on Bridge St, over what became Vibes & Scribes. Happier times. I got my U23D dance mixes down the back of Crowleys I think. It's ropey now though.

  7. Initially I was luke warm about this but I've grown more uncertain. A very brief search on eBay showed that these tracks are readily available and are not in the least bit rare. Also what is it with U2 and remixes? There seems to be no input from the band, they just hand the track off to somebody who has a free hand. Why so many all the time? Apart from the U2 organization no one else seems keen on them and yet they keep on coming.

  8. For me, U2 is the only band that can be mentioned with The Beatles. It's not that other bands are not that great. (U2 is still the best though!) It is because U2 is the only band I've heard come up with so many unique sounds and use them in so many ways that had previously never been done in music. I concur.

  9. Thank you. I'll be fine. This I know. A lot of good has come from bad. Then Pope, now Saint John Paul II gave my Godfather, who is a priest and was celebrating a private mass with the Pope, his own rosary and told my Godfather to give it to me and know that he was prarying for me by name. My Godfather had mentioned me to him. For me, life cannot get any better than that even if it hurts a lot. It's still pretty hard to fathom that I have Saint John Paul II's personal rosary, or one of them. I imagine there were a few. I am not trying to impose any beliefs upon anyone in speaking this. It
