A song that may be nearly a year old, possibly older from when it was originally released? No thanks, it's old news.

Just watched it and he didn't actually say anything.

Back in May he said he had just finished up a couple of weeks with U2 in reference to a question he was asked about writing sessions. That's probably what he was referencing.

Real World / The root of sin
« Last post by Maximus on July 27, 2014, 10:34:37 PM »
I read this and it struck a chord with me:



Ignatius thought that a particular type of ignorance was at the root of sin. The deadliest sin, he said, is ingratitude. It is “the cause, beginning, and origin of all evils and sins.” If you asked a hundred people to name the sin that’s the origin of all evils, I’ll bet none of them would say ingratitude. They would say pride or disobedience or greed or anger. The idea that we sin because we’re not sufficiently aware of God’s goodness probably wouldn’t occur to too many people.
Gratitude meant something different in Ignatius’s time from what it does today. Gratitude to us means sending thank-you notes for Christmas presents or thanking neighbors when they give us a hand. For us, ingratitude is something like bad manners. Gratitude was a much more serious matter in Ignatius’s late-medieval society, which was organized around a set of mutual obligations among those in social and political hierarchies. Everyone needed to be aware of the contributions of everyone else. Gratitude was the glue that bound people together. But cultural differences are only part of the story. By emphasizing gratitude, Ignatius was saying something about the nature of God. God is the generous giver, showering us with blessings like the sun shining on the earth. If we truly understood this, we would return God’s love with love. We wouldn’t sin. Gratitude is a good word for this fundamental quality of our relationship with God. Ingratitude, our blindness to who God truly is, is thus the root of all sin.

U2 is definitely taking a giant risk working with these 3 young hot shot producers I admire them for not playing it safe, but how is this relationship going to pan out ? Ryan has publicly acknowledged his love for u2 but his music to me is nothing at all like theirs. Danger mouse on the other hand has the Broken Bells project which has some experimental U2 similarities. Paul Epoworth has hit a homerun recently with Adele and Florence and the machine( I enjoyed the production on those 2 records).
If they are successful in fusing U2's sound with the current sonic terrain , we just may get another classic album if it falls flat we might just see the end of U2. From what I heard of the Ordinary love & Invisible samplers I really believe they can do it .

General U2 Discussion / Re: Larry and electronic drums
« Last post by bondylan on July 27, 2014, 09:58:18 PM »
It's been a while since we first heard Invisible and I'm curious if the band will continue to pursue the electronic drum sound. Will Larry have two drum sets on stage or one customized set like New Orders drummer. Also.I noticed during the Electricladyland footage Adam had a bass keyboard. Have they abandoned these ideas entirely?
