  1. I partially agree. Sometimes they do sometimes they don't. Here are my favorites in order from the last few albums: SOE: Lights of Home, American Soul, Blackout, You're the Best Thing About Me, Love is Bigger... SOI: Cedarwood Road, Every Breaking Wave, Raised by Wolves, Volcano, The Miracle of Joey Ramone. No Line on the Horizon: Stand Up Comedy, Breathe, Magnificent, I'll Go Crazy... How to Dismantle...: Original of the Species, All Because of You, City of Blinding Lights, Miracle Drug. Some of these songs were promoted on Late Night TV to some extent, but it seems
  2. Is it just me or are the clothing articles from the U2 store / concerts cheap garbage nowadays or what? I mean, for the price, can't we at least get some Hanes or Fruit of the Loom grade shirts? When I was a kid the material was much better at concerts. The shirts I bought for The Joshua Tree tour and the one that came with the Deluxe SOE bundle are like paper napkins. Not to mention the extremely stretched out collars (the pictures have nice tight, thick collars). I hate complaining but I just find more and more reasons to bitch about the level of service U2 fans are getting. From album pre-
  3. 41862 - wtf? Why are we counting? I've seen this thread here for a while now so I'm just jumping on the bandwagon, but I don't know why :-)
  4. Funny, my pre-order deluxe box set has made it across the U.S., and actually past right through my town on its way to another FedEx station. Apparently although it's only 45 minutes from me now, after 13 days of travel and about 2300 miles, it will still take another 3 days to get to me. It's only about 38 miles from me now! Just food for thought. I finally did receive the copies from ticketmaster though, so I'm listening to the album and trying get into it. So far the early released tracks are the best to me. I'm not quite feeling the rest yet.
  5. Still no delivery for me. As of today it looks like my pre-order was in Chicago, and I live in CA. I don't think it will be here on the 8th, a week after release, as predicted by FedEx. I'm hopeful still. Unfortunately the excitement is wearing off for me. I was really pumped to get this album and listen on release day. Now it's just been a disappointing chore of checking shipping status multiple times a day to see if anything changes. I have yet to hear from anyone in the U2 camp chiming in on this problem. I guess to them it isn't. Plenty of people on here and calling support lines just keep
  6. I have the same mixed emotions. I wanted to enjoy it and share thoughts with other fans when it came out. A week late kind of takes the excitement out of it for me. It's yesterdays news so to say. But I will still force myself to find bliss in new music from U2. I just love em too much not to.
  7. There are fans still waiting for pre-orders of the new album. Can't anyone help get us an advance download of our music? This should have been handled by now. 

  8. I would think someone in the band or management would be checking these forums around the time of the new release to see if anyone is having problems. If so they could do something about it. Has anyone had any luck with help getting a download of the new album or anything while waiting for their delayed pre-order? If so, please share. I just want to hear the new album, now! I am stubborn, and I will not pay for it again. I already own three copies which aren't delivered yet.
  9. I called the U2 shop and they are less than helpful. No download possible in the meantime or anything. Utterly ridiculous. They are a disservice to U2 and their fans. Not to mention the products and clothing are generally very generic / cheaply made. I will not be "pre-ordering" from their site again. I also ordered a shirt during the Joshua Tree tour which never arrived. Apparently their FanFire store sells product that is out of stock, as I found out with that shirt and most of the other items I ordered from them were also out of stock and had a delay in shipping (months). First you have to
  10. Comment below to petition for a download code for the new album if you pre-ordered but haven't yet received it. What's the point of a pre-order if we have to wait, while others can go pick it up or download it instantly? Songs of Experience? How about demonstrating some customer service "experience?" Island Records provided downloads for some who bought Joshua Tree 30th anniversary re-issue who didn't receive their codes. We should be offered something similar at the least. I'm chomping at the bit here...
  11. Sometimes itunes will put a song under collaborations if the artist name contains a featured artist. I've recently seen this with Taylor Swift's new album (and I've seen it in the past). Try searching for the song name if you haven't tried that.
  12. Thank you for this. I was dumb enough to pre-order the album and now can't enjoy it for a week. I'm tempted to check out the leak but feel it would ruin the "experience" for me.
  13. I'm pissed. I can't listen to the album now for a week unless I buy it again? I already own three copies that I can't get yet... WTF?

      Same here, pre ordered the extra deluxe box set and the regular CD, thought I would have it on the 1st Dec but nothing!! Fed up!!

  14. I second that. We definitely should not have to wait.
