It's interesting that the comments include:

Attacking U2's tax affairs
U2's poor output over the past 15 years
Bono being a 'total d*****bag'

Seems spot on to me!

I don't know how you find the time to comment on all these articles, big_willy.  I'm beginning to think you're a spambot. ::)

hahah spambot about sums him up.

A list collaboration, U2 can make a great album on their own. Dance songs? Didn't really turn out well and now they're physically old, won't work.

1. Sing raw punk as if you can never sing it again
2. Don't listen to the naysayers: Annouce the album in a big way; just be tasteful about it
3. Have a couple of radio friendly songs. Every album needs a "Pride" or "One", but also have a couple of brilliant pieces. Every album needs a "BAD" or "Until the end of the world"
4. Soak up demand from casual concertgoers with a stadium tour first - then - the master stroke -
5. Tour smaller arenas (10,000-20,000 people) with a setlist of 60-70 songs, rotating most of the setlist each night to please the long time fans. The casual fans will already have seen the stadium show, so this will be the fanatics in small arenas!!

Yeah, I nearly LOL'd at that.  Have U2 EVER played....that?  Maybe somewhere around Rattle and Hum, I suppose.
