I think people need to get outside and enjoy the bloody summer, go to the beach, play some ball, drink some beer, look at girls in bikinis,... buy 2 new suits, pink and blue, get hot in a photo booth.... whatever puts a smile on your face

The U2 album will be released when it's released and nothing anyone says on here will change that.

People on this forum are really great, calm and informative and Matt is a great moderator.
He might have made a bad decision that was out of character.

Lets just get some fresh air and wait for a little longer.

There were no limits for Sonny Crockett and Rico Tubbs

Sounds like everyone is over sensitive here. And where is everyones sense of humor.

Ofcoarse we all want an album now. But we wanted one last year, the year before, and the year before. At this point and extra few months wont kill anyone.

I posted months ago that I heard from a source (which I really cant name) that is is most likely to be early next year, and people went mad at me.

U2 only finished 360 a couple of years back. Released a documentary film after that. Achtung Baby had a pretty big rerelease. Bono has had a degree of bad press of late. So it stands to reason they just want to shut up a bit and give the general public some appetite for U2.

I can understand their reasoning in holding back.

Alas releasing great new music often has not been the bands priority for a long time.

But everyone...take a chill...I thought I was a nutty U2 fan.

Let's not eat all our friends with our mouths full of teeth!

Something is afoot, or we wouldn't have all this information/misinformation whirring about.

I wasn't on this forum for the other album releases, but I would guess it was a similar atmosphere surrounding the previous releases?

Can I make an observation?

People on the eastern side of the Atlantic (esp Italy, Spain, Ireland and the UK) love rumour and aren't afraid of letting the facts get in the way of a good story. Gossip is common.

People on western side of the world are much more literal in their communication. When the internet bridges this gap, confusion arises.

For me, as someone that only joined up here in the last few months that seem to have led to the latest blitz on this album, I've mostly been very happy that U2's finally started playing it so close to the vest and they haven't been telling everyone how great the new album is (or anything else). But I do get the frustration with the delays thus far. I wanted/believed Songs of Ascent would be out the same year No the next year Aw, man the year after that CRAP!

And hoping that isn't happening again. I don't think it is. Somehow, I'm still cautiously optimistic it'll come out this year. But even if it doesn't, I'll keep waiting. Playing the old albums, and stuff by other artists I like.
