  1. We were supposed to leave on Friday for Las Vegas to see David Lee Roth at the House of Blues. Instead we'll be scrounging for toiler paper. Amazing how things can turn so quickly. ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ Next scheduled show is Roger Waters in August, which hopefully will go on as scheduled. Stay safe everyone.
  2. Good morning, World. Glad for the distraction. 1. Boy 2. October 3. War 4. The Unforgettable Fire 5. The Joshua Tree 6. Rattle & Hum 7. Achtung Baby 8. Zooropa 9. Pop 10. All That You Can't Leave Behind 11. How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb 12. No Line On The Horizon 13. Songs Of Innocence 14. Songs Of Experience My answers... 01. Which was the first U2 album you owned? Boy. I remember when I Will Follow was first being played on KROQ in Los Angeles. I was 14. 02. What were the first songs you heard from #3 and #13? Must have been Sunday Bloody Sunday from War. The Miracle (of Joey Ramone) for SOI. 03. What were your initial opinions of #7 and #1, and have they changed since then? Achtung Baby blew me away from first listen. The Fly, Until the End of the World, ...Wild Horses, I couldn't get enough. Boy, I was thrilled by this new sound I was hearing. The Electric Co! Love that song. 04. Which album(s) are your favourite? Achtung Baby, Unforgettable Fire, October 05. Which album do you prefer out of #10 and #4? The Unforgettable Fire has two of my all-time favorites: Bad and A Sort of Homecoming. Love that album dearly. 06. What are your favourite tracks from #6 and #12? Rattle and Hum: So many good choices! I'm going to go with Desire. No Line on the Horizon: One of the very albums of theirs I don't like and haven't listened to since it was first released. I couldn't tell you what's on it. 07. What memories do you associate with #14 and #8? SOE: My wife and I saw back to back shows in Las Vegas. Zooropa: I remember thinking this was all the crap not good enough to make it onto Achtung Baby. I hated this album. 08. Which album would you listen to when feeling down? The Joshua Tree. It really is a wonderful album from beginning to end. 09. Where would you rank #5 and #9 in your album preferences? The Joshua Tree, maybe 3rd or 4th depending on the day. Pop: Toward the bottom, with Zooropa and NLOTH 10. Which album has a better opening track, #2 or #11? October (Gloria) or How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb (Vertigo). Both are great, but I have a real emotional attachment to October. Underappreciated masterpiece, IMHO. 11. What are your favourite lyrics from #10 and #13? All That You Can't Leave Behind - So many great songs, but I always think about Kite. My mom died shortly before this album came out, and Kite hit me hard. "I'm a man, not child. I'm a man who sees the shadow behind your eyes. Who's to say where the wind will take you? Who's to say what it is will break you? I don't know which way the wind will blow. Who's to know when the time has come around? I don't want to see you cry. I know that this is not goodbye..." Songs Of Innocence - "If you go your way and I go mine, are we so helpless against the tide? Baby every dog on the street knows that we're in love with defeat. Are we ready to be swept off our feet? And stop chasing every breaking wave." 12. Which album would you listen to when feeling happy? All That You Can't Leave Behind. Beautiful Day is my go-to happy song. 13. How many songs from #7 and #2 have you heard live? Achtung Baby - Not sure, I've seen every tour since War, so that's probably most of them. October - NOT ENOUGH!!! 14. Which tracks from #8 and #5 should have been released as singles? Zooropa - None. It's crap. The Joshua Tree - In God's Country 15. Which album do you listen to more, #11 or #3? How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb or War - War, for sure. 16. Which album has grown on you the most? I don't know that any has grown on me, as my initial impressions pretty much stay with me. Maybe Rattle and Hum, in the sense that the movie was pretentious crap, but the original songs on there are really good. Angel of Harlem, for example. 17. Which songs from #4 and #1 do you dream of hearing live? The Unforgettable Fire - The Unforgettable Fire... Boy - A Day Without Me 18. Which album has a better closing track, #9 or #12? Pop (Wake Up Dead Man) or No Line On The Horizon (Cedars Of Lebanon). Not very fond of either one. 19. Which album do you prefer out of #6 and #14? Rattle & Hum or Songs Of Experience - Both good, but Rattle and Hum wins out. 20. Which album would you love to see played in full like on the recent Joshua Tree tours? OCTOBER!!!! ๐Ÿ˜
  3. It worked fine for me, but I renewed over a month ago.
  4. I will agree that it seems strange the fan club has so many issues with shipping, ticketing, and communication in general. But I don't think this site is relevant to the actual music. I mean...they've given us what...2 albums and 3 tours in the last 4 years or so? That's not bad. They can make it up to us during the 30th Anniversary Achtung Baby Tour...
  5. So I came across U2: Live in Berlin on DirecTV last night. It seems like it was only part of the show (started with Elevation on the B Stage). What the hell was I looking at? Was that from the same show as the DVD (I'm assuming)? BTW: It was awesome. I can't wait to get the full show.
  6. Got my discs yesterday. I haven't had any problems with Disc One. Haven't listened to Disc Two yet. For those waiting, it took 11 days from my shipping email to receipt. Rock on!
  7. There's a link alright. It just doesn't work. โ˜น๏ธ
  8. Yeah, so it's now Sunday morning here. 7 days since my "it shipped" email. The good news is the tracking option has been added to my profile page. The bad news is when I enter my zip code, I get a "wrong store" message. I've seen monkey shit fights more organized than this! ๐Ÿ˜‰
  9. Yeah, so I got my email Sunday. It's now Friday. My email did not contain any tracking information. It did say this: "PLEASE NOTE: In an effort to provide you with the most expedient delivery, your order may not include a packing slip. Rest assured that you can reference your order details on your account at any time here:(link to my order)." But of course the link just leads back to the home page. No shipping info at all. I mean...come on...
  10. The email has arrived! The discs are on their way.
  11. And kingdoms rise, and kingdoms fall....
  12. That's not exactly true... "The complete tracklisting will be published in early 2019 with shipping beginning in Spring 2019." https://www.u2.com/news/title/innocence--experience-live-2015--2018 When we renew our memberships, the band offers incentives to do so. This one is particularly cool, but also, months late. That's a fact. I'm not angry or anything (although a little more transparency would be nice), but let's not make it out to be our fault for expecting them to keep their word (or at the very least, explain clearly why they aren't).
