General U2 Discussion / Re: 2018--a great U2 year

The past few years have been amazing in general for U2. I saw at least one U2 show a year for four years in a row, and wow was it fun. Three amazing tours, two amazing new albums, and more energy I've felt them from them since Atomic Bomb. It's been a really good sprint.

The Music and Lyrics / Re: Vinyl records - 2 LP records on albums

The outer rings of the vinyl are better in sound since there is more distance for one second.

Some album are even on 45 rpm to increase quality. I admit it's annoying, but it's worth it.

The disadvantage of these albums on 4 sides, is that -- I think -- they're made in two parts. Even on CD/Spotify it is weird. SOI and SOE (and Pop, but that's due to length) are made for 4 sides, for instance. While I have to Atmid that my 2 sides version of SOI is very nice to listen to. The quality is better since the 4 sides version is on its first LP wrong pressed...

I hear SO MUCH U2 influence in 30 Seconds to Mars and the Killers (I know they're not "young").   U2's influence continues to trickle down through the generations, and listeners stay interested.  So if a band like 5 Seconds of Summer released SOE, sure, I think it would be huge.

From the few songs such as( Looks so perfect and Amnesia) I have heard from 5 SOS they seems miles away from the mature U2 lyrics.  I just cant get my head around a young male band singing songs of experience!  Would they even understand the context of such a personal Bono album?  I would think that they prefer to sing about hot girls and young love, heartache, romance etc. and stuff relevant to their generation and age group.  I have to confess that I find SOE a little boring and mildly depressing.  Much prefer the energy of Looks so perfect and takes me back in time to being young lol.

News and Rumors / Re: U2 France

I could translate the article in English if youlike but the link isn't working (moreover, I can't find the page on the U2 France website).

Does anybody have a valid link? Or could somebody post the original article in French here? Or even just the title?

I'm not gonna lie: it's annoying to have to keep switching sides. I love these albums and U2 is the only band for which I'm willing to invest in vinyl for the entire catalogue, but it's not the most enjoyable way to listen to those albums. I realize that three U2 songs might last as long as six songs by some of those artists in the 1960s, but it feels less tedious when you're able to plow through six songs before having to flip the record over.

I got me The Best Of 1980-1990 [2 LP] and it's great sounding quality, superb.
I own few of the original records on LP, October, War, The Unforgettable Fire and The Joshua Tree, after that I bought the others on cd. My old records sound great as always, the feeling of playing them again on record player brings me back in time. I'm not sure of the new LP versions that got for sides, like Achtung Baby. I'ts strange to skip sides after just three songs. Still I think I will buy it! :)

Side 1
1. "Zoo Station"
2. "Even Better Than the Real Thing"
3. "One"

Side 2
1. "Until the End Of The World"
2. "Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses"
3. "So Cruel"

Side 3
1. "The Fly"
2. "Mysterious Ways"
3. "Tryin’ to Throw Your Arms Around the World"

Side 4
1. "Ultra Violet (Light My Way)"
2. "Acrobat"
