well we know for sure that they are happy with 6 songs which are in the bag, need to take into account how often various members of the band travel around and world and especially bono in which a time schedule for sessions in the studio would have to fit around. but i think all they are concerned about at this point is getting it right, and thats it. some of the wait for this album might basically be an organisation in preperation for what they would like to achieve with its release, what there tour will be like and what will it entail and what songs will they use in the setlist along with there new material. also the discussion of releasing a digitalised version of the album is almost imminent which means extra thought involved in the process of its creation as it is very new to them dispite talk of it happening for some time. The only thing i am concerned about is the band second guessing themselves, a great example would be that days before the announcement of their last tour they changed it from 'kiss the future' to '360' tour. so i think that is my main concern but i have faith that they are all willing to take the creative leap in which they know they will have to take in order to still exist at all as a band, and a seemingly still relevant one at that.
