What do U want from this Album???
« on: December 22, 2008, 02:07:41 AM »
To be honest... I'll rank my top 5 U2 albums:

AB
JT
Z
WAR
RAH

You'll notice the last two weren't on my list. It seemed like they were trying to play it safe compared to their earlier days. I want an AB style record where they broke boundries and totally re-invented themselves. Cut the "Do we have the job as the number one band" bs!!! Before they never would have even asked that question. I want to see that swagger back. Thoughts??

Last 2 albums was basically U2 trying to pick themselves back from the ground and launch themselves back into space. Now they've done that with HTDAAB and All That You Can Leave Behind they are free to experiment :)

I think a change in direction again (as per Achtung) The last one in particular felt very 'safe'!

Yeah I agree and it looks like they are going to re-invent themselves with the new album.

Yes they were. And now that they are back on their feet, Im hoping for a more experimental type album like Achtung Baby. I remember being shell shocked when AB came out. But in a good way. Ive never seen a band re-invent themselves as much as U2.

Yea I remember seeing The Fly video and I was like what the....? as well.  But as Bono said, The Fly is  them cutting down the JT, or something to that affect. Help me here.

Achtung Baby was the sound of "four men chopping down the Joshua Tree."

What do I want from the new album?  I want my soul to be lifted, my heart to be broken and my mind to be blown.  Is that too much to ask?  Really?

That's an awesome idea!  I want that too!  Although it would probably scare me if it did happen  :P **has vision of confetti flying with a loud popping noise**

Well, if AB was the sound of four men chopping down the Joshua Tree, then to stay with this so-called theme, then I want the new album to be the sound of four (or 6) men assembling an atomic bomb....then setting it off.
