New Song on Red Wired
« on: December 01, 2008, 02:50:42 PM »
I just tried listening to the new Father Christmas song by u2 on Rd wired and the sound is absolutely terrible ! This song was always beautiful when it was done by Greg Lake But I think it is just as good done by U2 but I coulnd'nt believe how horrible the sound is! I tried listening to a couple of other songs and they sound horrible,so it is not just the U2 song. Anyone else have trouble?

Conny, the songs all sound great for me.  Have you tried listening to music anywhere else on your computer?  Maybe a connection is loose...

I was online when the song came on and nearly fell off my chair!  Finally, a new U2 song, even if it's not theirs, but still....!!

You know what I found out what the problem was! I turned the sound down on their speaker and now it sounds fine on my my speakers. I love the new song it's sounds great. I especially loved Egdes guitar sounds beautiful. Oh I just can't wait for the new cd to drop!!!

It's great! I didn't manage to watch it on redwire, it was loading forever, but it's out on youtube.
Great to hear something new even if it's a cover.  :)

Not a big fan of xmas songs . But U2 cover this really well and just great to hear from them again .. love The Edge's guitar sound in this song so that bodes well for the new album !! Bono sounds on great form to and for a good cause so no complaints from me .

Welcome back boys ! roll on more new U2 songs :D

I absolutely despise Christmas songs, but actually this is tolerable (about as high praise as you'll ever hear me give). Good decision to keep it low-key too.

Not a preview of the next album, though, which is slightly annoying. Would've been good to hear, if only slightly, what all this talk of innovation and whathaveya is all about.

Oh, this was rapturous!  Just absolutely gorgeous...Edge's guitar...I'm at a loss for words.  Now Coldplay's track with Kyle Minogue, that's the one I'm not yet sold on.  It's rather inert, like a 45 record played at 33 1/3 (sorry, speaking Greek to the kiddies)...maybe it'll grow on me.

The song reminds me alot of 'rise up' from the joshua tree sessions.  its low key and nice...I thought larry's percussion was spot on.

So, I'm not familiar with the original version. Are the guitar stylings of The Edge exclusive to the cover? If so, and that is a hint of their "new direction," I like it very much.

Sign up to the (RED)WIRE service. It's only five bucks (US).

I tried signing up to redwire and when the window opens it just says "coming soon." Anyone else experienced this? Is it just not available in Canada yet? Sigh....For anyone who HAS successfully signed up - do you get all the songs that were in the launch party?
I loved the song...initial disappointment to see it was a Christmas song, but then delight because it's so lovely and low key and Bono sounds so good. And I agree about Larry's drumming - he's so perfectly restrained throughout the whole thing.

Doesn't Edge sound just beautiful?  And so does Bono.  "Singing like a bird!"  He also looks really nice in that suit.  That's a good look for him.  No more 'hippie peace army." (How did Achtoon put it?)  But why does he look like he's wearing eyeliner?

Ya know what? I noticed that too. But I thought no it can't be. At least I hope not. Maybe it was just a shadow from the lighting that makes it look that way. But I'm glad I'm not the only one wondering about that too.
