I'm psyched for the "hitherto unheard, funky selves." Very intriguing.

I don't know how I feel about the Unforgettable Fire allusions. I'm beginning to like TUF more and more, but it's definitely something that takes some getting used to, not something that blows your mind right away.

Love Larry in the hoodie! And though Adam looks about 30 years older than Larry, he also looks great. Like some really awesome grandpa.

Grandpa?!  Adam looks great.  I must be getting old, because my first thought was not "grandpa"!

Oh no Edges, if Adam is a grandpa then I am a grandma-frightening thought. But then again, I look as young as Larry. ;) (if I do say so myself!)

Thanks Matt just seen the link ! ;D The U2 band wagon is on the roll again ! can't wait to hear the tracks now . seems to reference The Unforgettable Fire in the review which is great it's my fav album to date .
As for Bono in eyeliner anybody else think he looks like Gavin Fridays twin ? Ive sported most of Bono's looks over the years but not sure how the eyeliner will go down with my mates  :D

I'm sure Gavin has a few more ideas up his sleeve.  Could Bono drift more into Virgin Prunes territory?

I really think the eyeliner bit was a typical "Bono moment" they're getting ready for the shoot and suddenly he gets the idea and voila !  I wouldn't expect it being a semi-permanent thing. Perhaps it's something he's formulating for the tour along with the bowler and brolly. Adam, Edge and Larry are looking as I said earlier in fighting shape......

I am not a native english speaker, so please help if you are. in the Q article it says ''Bono treated Q to a private audience of two further unfinished tracks (one of them is NLOTH)'' and then ''One other track, Every Breaking Wave...'' ok, does it mean Every Breaking Wave is one of those ''two further unfinished tracks ''? if not, then we are talking about 3 tracks.
and, together with the seven tracks Q initially heard (although they only named 6 of them, Magnificent, Crazy Tonight, Stand Up, Get Your Boots On, Winter, Unknown Caller ), plus 2 with ''particular excitement'', Moment Of Surrender and Breathe, Q totally heard as many as 12 tracks.
it's my first post so be gentle to me please.

Good question and thanks for posting. 

I had to look back at the Q mag. article, and it looks to me like they are choosing between their 2 versions of the song "No Line on the Horizon" (that is song 1) and the second song is "Every Breaking Wave".  My count is at least 10 songs on the new album, but the final number and listing will be finalized when the band posts that.  The album page for the @u2 web site is also cautious in that regard.

I like the fact that the band is still considering different versions of the songs, as that means that they could mix it up live, with different versions on different nights (wouldn't that be awesome?).  I am also wondering which songs have been modified into the ones that will end up on the new album.  They often do that as a song evolves (Always -> Beautiful Day, etc.).

I look forward to your future contributions to the discussions and I really like your username.

I would freak out if Bono and the boys went into more Virgin Prune terrritory. It would be great for me. Still, there will never be another Virgin Prunes. They are in a league of their own when it comes to originality. U2 is amazing in their own way-just a different way from their mates. I love that they are so different and remain close friends for so many years.

Don't know if it's been mentioned before, Bono wears the same jacket in the Q video and I Believe in Father Christmas.
I am all for him becoming robert smith (without crazy hair), but he shd have shaved first.

Can´t wait to have this issue of Q Mag in my hands. 28 pages about No Line on the Horizon, that´s what I read elsewhere. Wow!

Cheers, MT

I don't think it was a spontaneous thing, seeing as how he had the eyeliner on in the "Father Christmas" video as well.
