General U2 Discussion / Re: Little Things Album version

This is the issue with hearing the live version before the studio version, U2 is almost always better live.

General U2 Discussion / Re: Any extra album codes? (USA)

^Thanks. Sounds like most people already claimed their album code. People who bought multiple tour tix have a few CDs already en route to their own homes now.

"I lie for a living, I love to let on
But you make it true when you sing along…"

-Bono
Very apt. I still haven't listened to The Showman, but that's a good lyric even without knowing the melody.

Bono's not good with dates. At random shows he'll boldly proclaim stuff like "exactly 30 years ago today we performed for the first time in Chicago! And here we are tonight in Chicago again! Erm... or was it within a week, give or take? Or the same month 30 years ago?"

I remember hearing the Kimmel version and thinking "wow...that's some pretty epic sh**" and the album version just hasn't had the same impact on me at all. It's nice, but it doesn't reach the 'hair-raising' levels that I thought it might.
Same! The problem is we imprint to the first version of the song we hear (Kimmel live, which the band performed well).

edit: I haven't gotten an soe album yet. Is it true that album's Blackout is different than music video's Blackout?

Yes, live is winning in fan polls

I wish Love is all we have left was longer. Best song U2 has done since Moment of surrender in terms of emotional value. 13 is a close second.

Yeah, I feel like a couple songs were shortchanged, like Love is Bigger could have been another minute longer and I have never liked how You're the Best Thing ends so suddenly.

The Music and Lyrics / Re: Ranking SOE in U2's catalogue
« Last post by Clarky on December 13, 2017, 05:58:21 PM »
I have really enjoyed it to this point but I can already feel it starting to settle in....and I can envision it probably ending up somewhere next to my 7th or 8th favourite U2 album. There's one too many pop/radio-friendly/trying-to-appeal-to-a-younger-audience songs on it for me.
