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

It was a wonderful year.  I saw them for the first time outside of the US (Manchester, UK). It is such a different experience, plus planning for that show prompted my husband and I to take our family on a two week European vacation.  It was magical.

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.

Agree - I actually feel somewhat spoiled - when i think back on it over a 3 year period I managed to see the band live 16 times, 2 new albums and a tour of the album that really kicked them on to greatness. I hope they take some downtime - my thinking 'this was it' is diminishing now - I think there could be more in the tank yet - so fingers crossed.

The Music and Lyrics / Re: Vinyl records - 2 LP records on albums
« Last post by JFW on January 14, 2019, 03:07:57 PM »
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.
