After two relatively "safe" albums No Line on the Horizon sounds like just what I was hoping for.  It all has the vibe of pre Achtung Baby release and that bodes well for the album

ok, this is exciting news and all, but believe it or not i am a bit disappointed. are we going from the rumour of getting a double album down to only ten songs? i genuinely respect the creative process of the band and never have high expectations, i always take what they give me. but after hearing about the 50 or 60 songs they wrote i expect more than 12 songs on this. more like a hip hop album with 17, 18, 19 tunes. hope Will.I.Am talked them into putting more songs

Bono was testing it to check if it was cold enough to put out The Edge.  ;)

WOW !

Thanks for the link...unbelievable.

...as a side note...if the eyeliner can get Bono off his sunglasses, I'm all for it.

Thank you so much for this sneak preview. Love the site. Love the video. Love all the white lights. Song titles seem a bit predictable to me. I wish they wouldn't say every album is their best work ever, because usually it isn't.

Here are a few quick thoughts on the Q article/interview

Bono meets Green Day Eyeliner Brand

Song Titles: Moment of Surrender...Breathe (Cheap Trick, Pink Floyd)

Descriptions: A hodge-podge of what are the best U2 descriptors....epic, euphoric coda, atmospheric, grand swell, layered, etc.... BUT some other interesting terms as well....funky, electro, swaggering, evocative. Sounds too good to be true!

Trilogies:  Boy, October, War; Unforgettable Fire, Joshua Tree, Rattle & Hum; Achtung Baby, Zooropa, Pop; All That You Can't Leave Behind, How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb; No Line on the Horizon.  The new title fits in terms of longer album titles but it's description thus far seem to indicate a break from the last 2 releases....much like JT & Achtung Baby.  I guess the trilogy thing is an artificial reflection anyway.

The "hit man" does look to be in fighting shape ! Thanks for the fantastic link !!! I think the eyeliner , bowler , and brolly where an omage to "a clockwork  orange" just a guess , I can't see it being a change for the b-man.  Anytime Eno is excited along with Lanois you can bet this is going to be a BIG record !  Wouldn't a single dropped in our laps in 9 days be a nice belated christmas gift..............?

Oooh!  I can't believe I'm getting excited about this.  All this talk so far about the new album hasn't gotten me really worked up, but the Q mag. bit has got me pumped now!  The descriptions of the songs are tantalizing.  Swaggering?  That sounds hot.  Seeing new video of the guys is pretty cool.  They look fabulous.  I knew you'd enjoy Larry in the hoodie, Starfish.  The Curious Case of Larry Mullen.  Adam and the Edge look great, as always.  I'm giving Bono a pass on the eyeliner, not because I love it, but because, as Soloyan said, at least he doesn't have the shades on.  And if it indicates a new, edgier style, then may be the music will be new and edgy too.  Oh my, I'm really rambling here.  Did everyone else get to see the picture gallery?  I couldn't access it on my computer.
