I've noticed this at the end of the last U2.com newsletter, received today :

"Stop Press! Just heard that we have another exclusive video featuring the whole band all set for the next few days - keep checking in... "

Can't wait !

we should get an album leak in February. Bomb hit the torrent sites about a month before the official street date.

If the album does leak, I'll only listen to 2 or 3 songs at the most...I love the ritual of going out and buying a CD and rushing home to hear it. There's something really amazing about hearing a song for the first time...and I feel like if I listen to a whole album on the internet, it ruins the suprise...I don't want to know 100% of what I'm getting when I buy an album

I wonder if it is early enough to pre-order the album? So I don't have to rush to the music stores.

Well, you can, but it doesn't mean you should. That said, my plans involve getting it from an indie store a couple of blocks away, which will allow me to be incredibly smug and holier-than-thou about it.

The old school way, I couldnt agree with you more. When HTDAAB came out, my buudy got it before the release and I wouldnt listen to it. Ah well maybe a few songs I did!

I agree, too, but usually lack the willpower to wait  :(

Me too. The last album I listened to a day before on u2.com and I think it has detracted from my enjoyment of the songs. One of my favorite memories was the day I bought Pop. (The first album to come out after I became a U2 fan) Now I'm not in love with that album or anything, but I loved just laying on my bed and exploring the newest piece of art from my favorite artist. I'm holding out this time. (But I will buy the single whenever it finally comes out!)
