I'm not convinced that the album's coming out this year, but the more I think about it, the less that lack of conviction has to do with anything that has been "reported" over the last 48 hours.

Yes, this. I am increasingly sceptical, but these "revelations" don't really affect my view one way or the other.

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.
I agree with everything you say  except the pink and blue suits,there are limits.

There were no limits for Sonny Crockett and Rico Tubbs

I wanted to be Sonny Crockett when I was a kid.

I got a full Sonny Crockett outfit my 1st year of high school for Xmas. I wore it every day for a week back from vacation, only changing the t-shirt underneath (one of which was my Clash shirt, the pic from their 1st album cover). I wore those Topsiders out!

Yeah, he's called "Edge" something-or-other now. His last comment to me was really helpful and informative, though.

People are really stressing too much about this topic that Exile started. I've been a member here for years (although I don't post that much) and, as far as I'm concerned, Exile is one of the most eloquent and sensible forum members there is here. Separately, Matt and his team do a superb job of running this website.

I don't think there's anything wrong with Exile saying he doesn't believe the French / Italian rumours, whatever, but Matt is also correct that one of the great things this site does is publish rumours and things we may want to hear about U2. I've also been a paid-up member of U2.Com since 2004 and I hardly ever look at that site for news - because they only publish official news, of which there obviously isn't much at the moment.

Exile and Matt are both right in what they've said in this thread, their opinions just differ - but if we all had the same opinion about the various U2 topics there would be no need for forums would there?

I, for one, am glad that the band are keeping this album more under wraps than previously - it's more exciting than previous releases. We should also all remember that U2 don't owe us anything - let alone another album - and we should just be glad that they are still together. Imagine how boring life would be (and it happen one day) when they've split up and we know that there will never be a new album or tour ever again - what will we talk about then?

well said!
And yes, U2.com...nothing but Zooropa anniversary stuff for the last 2 months!

I seriously hope they do officially announce the new album/single there after keeping it so tightly wrapped on the rest of the internet. Imagine if we hear the first 30 second clip, actually on U2.com?!?!

I feel a certain dictatorship wave hanging on the air. Do you really think that this war environment is needed? While you all are here eating each other, Bono is hanging out with his friends in Monaco not giving a f#%$* damn for this  8)

I can read a bit of French and there is nothing in this article that suggests that the album won't be released this year.

For any late participants to the topic and who may be wondering what's going on - the thread title (which I think provoked the responses) has subsequently changed and likewise I think it's been moved on from.

M2's response has prompted me to move on from this site. Unbelievable.
