  1. OMFG I AM LOVING THIS!!!! Quality work. Not sure about American Soul yet, it's growing on me. Get Out Of Your Own Way makes me cry because it reminds me of my BFF that is across the otherside of the world, The Blackout is freaking awesome. I could go on, it's all so goooooood. Got it on through the headphones right now and it's even better.
  2. RIP to a great musician, I started crying as soon as I heard. My heart goes out to those that knew him best.
  3. I was pretty sure Baja stated that Red Zone was auction only tickets...
  4. This is so awesome, I sobbed my little heart out in excitement when I heard they were coming back. I was a bit bummed there was no Adelaide dates until I realised... that means I get a HOLIDAY IN SYDNEY. Hells yeah!!! Anyone see 'em last night on the 7:30 Project? Damn the boys look good. I am so glad I put myself into tour isolation like I did with the last one, once I have seen them, then I will watch the DVD, but I want to see the tour the first time, myself.
  5. thoughts, prayers and wishes of a speedy recovery are being sent your way B-man, take it easy and don't rush yourself, saving the world and running around on stage, being a hubby and a dad and an all around superman needs a guy at full strength. .
  6. Unos wrote: Historically U2 lead singles make the chart, others just about but thye've always been an album & live band, not having to rely on singles, so for those woried don't I'm more worried for those who keep reading Jesus into everyfucking thing U2 do, Magnificent is about Ali and the relationships between a man & a woman, and not everything on the album is about religion, now I've scanned the bible for any reference to sexy boots, kinky boots, any type of high heel boot and fuck me there isn't any. This site is driving me mad, I don't mind peoples opinions about the songs, we're all entitled to them and I myself am religious but not everything is about God and certainly anyone buying records would not automatically think U2 record? fuck me I won't buy that cos its definetly about the big J, bollocks the won't buy it because the have a better version on the album and in the time of a worldwide recession they don't have any money. One of thing don't categorise us, i've been a U2 fan probably longer ttham most as i'm probably older and never rammed Jesus Mary or holy st joseph down anybodys throats, U2 fans love the band for the music and the feeling that this band give us not necessarily for any religious content that might be in there. Now, on to my next subject pie & soup................... what do we think? which ones better, I've heard that up North you can get butter pies and they're great I totally agree, I am a long time U2 fan, I am a subscriber, and I mainly just float around and read the boards because I am getting sick andtired of the bashing and the religiousness that is being slammed down peoples throats. Yes, U2 are Christians, power to them. I follow Kemetic Orthodox...but still I love their music and can hear beyond just religious connotations within the lyrics, the lyrics are about love really and I like to think that isthe main point, be it a love for God or any of his/her names is cool, but still people have to remember Bono has 5 other major loves in his life too.. his wifeand 4 kids, he could just as easily be singing to them... and I don't think the buyer is going to really sit and pick it apart. I also don't think theband has ever really been too worried about the singles sales... sure the songs alone do manage to stand up on their own, but the album is the real deal... ittells a story... they all do, it is like a musical journey . WatchLinear... that does the album justice and I love Anton's take on it all. Also the band are bigger than chart sales, which is obvious by how they sell outshows, it should just be for the love of the music, the love of working together not for how much moolah it can make. It will be only then that I would say U2have lost their 'spark', when it is no longer the music, but the almighty dollar sign... and thankfully I don't see that happening.
  7. I love the new album personally, it is more a chilled album in many ways though and I dunno... U2 have always been more an album band than a singles imho asthe songs all together seem to tell a story.

  9. U2 has literally saved my life, when I was a teenager I had decided to commit suicide after all the teasing at school and the fact that I had been sexuallyabused for 6 years of my life by a family friend got out at school and others tried to rape me or take advantage of me thinking I was a slut, something theycalled me often. I was also having troubles with my parents because I had never really dealt with the abuse, so I can home from school one day, mum and dadwere at work, my sister was yet to get home from school, my cousin wasn't there either... so I put a blade to my wrist... and well the radio was on andStuck In A Moment came on... I stopped, to listen to it.. I thought it was fitting that it would be... the last song I heard but the lyrics hit me and the urgestarted to pass and a friend who was worried about me had come over to check on me. She found me, siting on the counter, tears running down my face but Ihadn't done it. I thank U2 for that. Also, Achtung Baby has really helped me through my marriage break-up. I still have some off days but then I just listen to U2 and it makes me happier.
  10. Even the best singers get a frog in their throat now and then
  11. oh dear, I feel a bit flushed... I might need a shower... a very COLD shower
  12. Happy Birthday Bono, 49 and still rather tasty to look at! Hope you have a good one. Happy Birthday Jordan, I hope you get all you wish for Many happy returns!
