On a sale of 1 to 10, how hyped are you for SOE?

Not very. I'll buy it but out of the 3 songs released only The Little Things did anything for me. The last few albums had some highs but a lot more lows then they should had. I kinda expect the same of SOE.

Keep in mind we have only heard 3 songs out of 12, and 2 of them have been live versions. That means that 11.5/12 of the album will be a new experience. A new Song Of Experience.  8) ::) ;D

I'm quite hyped. Although Best Things didn't win me over, I really love Little Things and Blackout.  I am quite anxious to hear the rest of the album and am confident the rest of the songs will be good.

Did you mean Best Thing or did you mean you didn't like any of the many (so far 3) versions of The Best Thing?

I'm not a big fan of any of the versions of Best Thing.  I prefer the acoustic version.  The other 2 are just so-so for me, I don't hate them, but they just didn't appeal to me as much as I was hoping.

Like I said earlier, there's really only 1 SOE song that's been released, the other 2 are live. So there are 11 (12 if the single version of The Best Thing is different than the one on the album) songs you haven't heard as they will be on the album, and 9 songs you haven't even heard at all!

I disagree about The Blackout being live. While they obviously played it live to the crowd that was there, the audio we hear in the video is a studio version with crowd noises included (kind of like how ASOH on WWIA is not really a concert recording).

That said, I chose 8. I am always super stoked when a new U2 album is coming out. I'm sure there'll be 3-5 songs that I dig on there.
