What say ye ? I'm skeptical at best.

Yes in 2017.
No.
Definitely maybe.
Yes but not till 2018.
We will get a new album somewhere between 2018 and 2020 but it won't be called SOE.

Will we ever actually see SOE ?
« on: June 03, 2017, 09:51:19 AM »
I'd have to say "no".

If it was even remotely close this shambles of a tour wouldn't exist.

All of my pessimism aside, I had to vote yes. The band is in too deep for there not to be a release.

I doubt it'll be an imminent release, but we will hear SOE one way or another.

I voted yes.  I think they've been mentioning it too much for it not to be released. 

Of course, I guess the closet comparison could be the Songs of Ascent talk after NLOTH was released.  But, I just don't remember there being as much hype/promise for SOA compared to SOE. 

Really, Bono mentioning tour ideas in the latest Rolling Stone interview has me thinking it will be released.

Yes. Without doubt - way too much smoke on this one for there not to be a fire.

I now expect to see this album in late Autumn this year. I think there has been too much effort put into it to NOT release it....unlike SoA, which didnt get anywhere near as much mentions by the band

Yes - there has been too much hype for the album already.
Will there eventually be a 'Songs of Ascent' even if it is very different to the one talked about 8 years ago?

I am starting to have my doubts. An extended JT tour if that rumour is true, gives them plenty of more reason to delay. They have scrapped so much stuff in the past eg SOI, work with Rick Rubin, that I can imagine SOE being scrapped and re-worked into something else later.

Yes but in 2018...maybe christmas season 2017.  They would be crazy not to keep this tour rolling right now.  It is a hit - i just got back from Chicago and that city went nuts for TJT 2017.  They were selling shots of a drink called the Elevation at a couple bars on the Riverwalk.

Yes and they should move away from this TJT2017 tour as fast as possible.
