Adam and Edge look innocent. Larry and Bono look experienced. Lol

It's cheeky and humorous.  Doesn't take itself seriously at all.

In the 80a their imagery were stoic. The 90s their image was ironic but still serious in their mockery of themselves, and playing with rock cliches.  Early 00s still serious in going back to basics... Now, they seem genuinely laid back, and having fun, with no masks or alter egos. There is meaning in what they've been doing, but they aren't hitting us over the head with it.  The imagery and promotion surrounding the album has been consistently raw open intimate and playful

...but a lot of fans are still more than serious

Regarding masks, I did wonder if Bono might have taken his sunglasses off for the photos though. Firstly, because they are a mask and secondly, because he surely doesnt go to bed in sunglasses too!?

I doubt the man could actually be embarrassed after nearly 40 years in the public eye.

And, Edge said it was Bono's idea. The world, not us fanatics, know him these days with the glasses. I'd figure that's why they're on.

It's kinda a rip of the Who's cover shot for The Kids Are Alright (the one where they are sleeping under the Union Jack blanket)

At first, i thought it was a porno mag! :p

Maybe this concept is a hint to show everyone of how intimate the new shows could be? You know... like going to bed/sleeping with U2?
