  1. Dear U2, I started with you in 1983. You forever changed my musical life. Thank you. With another album due on the heels of this one, I thank you in advance. THE 2015 TOUR: I challenge you and ask you to dare to be bold and make the song selection for your next tour to be comprised of only new songs from both albums, Invisible & Ordinary Love. YOU CAN DO THIS. We have in our collections many variations of your older material. It's perfect. Thank you. BUT be bold. Be completely brand new and move forward. Your new material is completely worth it. Dare I say Song

  3. Dear U2, please sing the whole album in concert. There is no filler on this one. Be brave. And do not leave out Ordinary Love and Invisible. That's 13 songs. I'll leave the other nine up to you. TY!
  4. Window in the Skies. A Rubin tune. See, I really liked that. Hmmmmm, what could have been? If you Google Rick Rubin, a TIME magazine article is near the top.Seems most everyone loves working with the guy. So it is with genuine curiosity as to why U2 did not. Did his "you either have something to say orplay" producers hat scare our guys off and only Eno/Lanios have the patience to grind out a U2 album? You know, they always put their songs through somany hoops to see what kind of song it needs to be, so maybe Rubin is not a fan of this kind of "put another dress on it" workflow. Maybe in theirl
  5. If it's true that Eno didn't want Boots on the album and that he pushed hard for Winter, then my point is made 100 fold. I just listened to Winter. Egads. -s ps. Any more Eno influence and this album could have been called GIRL. Now I'm dying to hear a Rick Rubin U2 track. How bad could that have been?
  6. Good. Some nice responses so far. 6/7 out of 10 is exactly where I'm at too. If it's not obvious, I'm not the casual fan. This is a 25 yearrelationship. So I've heard my fair share of Eno/Lanois points of view. Meeting and talking with Bono on two occasions are easily significant times in mylife. But as Simon Cowell would say, "If I'm being honest..." Dream Out Loud -scott
  7. Initial love. Mad love for the band always. But... I think I finally got down to it. Brian Eno should be banned from helping to make any sound resembling a soft twinkly bell. Or is Lanois to blame? EDGE? Thehigh pitch plinky stuff in FEZ for example. Too many old ears stirring this pot? Not digging the piano sound. Why do it even? You got three songs in 30 years requiring piano on stage. What's the point in filling with songs as FILL-onlyanyway? It sounds like "old man ears" treatment under many of the songs. How did Boots get past Eno and onto the album? Even White as Snow get
  8. Try it, great energy. NO SHOWS IN PHILLY FIRST TIME AROUND, WTF?
  9. What did they play? Bono yelled, "One more!" What was it? While I'm at it, what was the second song played after the Letterman show the othernight?
  10. ...and I must say, this new album is far more interesting. The energy is outstanding. Dare I say the last two albums seem boring compared to this?? Maybe their most interesting since Achtung when we were all wondering what they were trying to say now. How are they feeling as a band. Anyone wish for backup singers on stage during a concert??? How mind blowing would that be? A full time keyboardist? Or will they be hidden away below the stage? -scott
  11. Want my advice U2? LOL. Work hard to rework the old stuff so that you bring the older songs up to par with this amazingly sophisticated soundscape.
  12. Easily their most ambitious album ever. Multilayered musically and emotionally. Nothing could be considered radio friendly beyond Boots. And yet, Bono is in superb voice, hitting notes with such clarity I have not heard since Joshua Tree. The Edge morphs his sound to a degree not heard since POP. Easily the best engineered album since Achtung Baby. Bono's vocal treatment is outstanding. The supporting background vocals, surely a combination of Brian Eno, Daniel Lanois, Edge, and possibly someone else, combine for extremely rich blends. How this will translate to a live stage remains to b
