Why, beg Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno to produce our next album, of course. :D

Brandon Flowers is rejoicing that this train wreck will distract attention away from "are we human or are we dancer"

 :D :D :D

Good as these bands are, I hope they get that they will not be "the next U2." There will be no "next U2." There will only ever be THE U2. Viva U2!

Even in 10,000 years time there will never be another U2!

You know, that's also why Peter Gebriel makes an album every 10 years...because every time he's 10 years ahead of everyone.

For me, at least.

I'm pretty sure Chris Martin was relieved that his band's lead single literally was miles above U2's (considering he went into full-on U2 mode with Viva La Vida). I don't think Get on Your Boots is really anywhere near as good as Viva La Vida was. I'm sure NLOTH will be a killer album though.

Oh and if there's any justice in this world, Radiohead's In Rainbows will win album of the year. But we all know that's not going to happen.

Coldplay are actually planning to release an album this year...

I agree though Viva La Vida, Violet Hill, Lovers In Japan, Lost! and Life In Technicolor are all leagues better then "Boots". The albums as a whole...well lets wait for March 3rd. Then I'll give you an opinion from a fan of both.

In Rainbows winning would be laughable. Viva La Vida has it for sure...they owe Coldplay Grammys from A Rush Of Blood To The Head.

Kings of Leon are under recognized by the Grammys...

Just as The Killers can not touch the U2 of the past, the U2 of the present (Vertigo and beyond) can't touch (but heres to hoping they do) the Killers today.  Its hard for me to admit this, as I have lived most of my life with a single .mp3 CD of U2s Discography in my car... The Killers material is just more fresh, dynamic, and spontanious then what U2 puts out these days.  This is as it should be since U2 has been around for oh ~30 years.  The first 2 Killers albums are probably some of the best albums ever made, amazing that a band these days can put out albums that one can listen to from start to finish.  I just hope the public is smart enough to catch on or they will backlash against them like they did to U2 with Pop.  There is only so much someone has to say and I am beginning to think that Bono is losing touch :) . Coldplay is are pretty good to... but they don't make whole albums, and Chris Martin sweats Bono so bad its sad, even mimicing his stage antics... at least Brandon does his thing.

Boom Cha!

Cool, another Killers fan!  8)

They're my 2nd fav. behind U2. I do think that Hot Fuss was a much better album than How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb. Also, Day & Age is pretty amazing, but I'm hoping U2 can top it.

The thing is U2 has done so much more than The Killers. And, they probably wouldn't be around if it weren't for U2.

But, if any band is the "next U2" it's going to be The Killers, not Coldplay.
