U2 On Most Hyped Album List
« on: January 09, 2009, 12:45:32 PM »
U2 is on the Yahoo's music blog site. They have made the list of Most Hyped Albums.  The funny thing is the album that is on there is "every album since POP"!!  It said something like they will go to extremes to let you know every new album is the greatest album yet! I think Bruce Springsteen and Prince are on there too. I'm quite sure U2 doesn't give a rat's a** about making this list. I don't even know the nobody who wrote this one but I kind of got a kick out of the "every album since POP" comment! ;D   Oh it's written by that famous writer Shawn Amos at Getback.com site!!!!! ??? ??? :P

U2 has earned the right to hype their albums, IMO.

I dont think they will give a toss either - mind you goes to show the power of the 'brand' U2!!

Every newspaper supplement or magazine I have seen over the last few weeks has had a hype list and U2 is at the top.  I think it is just the media showing interest about the coming year!  :)

I don't know if hype is the right word.  I've seen a lot of lists of the most anticipated albums of 2009, and U2 has been at the top of every list I've seen.

In my local newspaper, on the list of anticipated 09 release....Bruce was at the top and U2 was like half-way down and after Lilly Allen...it got under my skin

Everyone has an opinion.  I'm pretty sure they'll outsell Bruce and definitely Lilly Allen by the time it's all said and done.

Most of the big bands all released on the last quater of 2008 - only U2 remains and for me it looks like they're going for a walk in the park :P

2 Months at #1 then  ;)

I think I was at billboard.com and they had a poll on who has the most hype for a new album in 09 and Eminem was leading with U2 close behind.

I'm loving all of this exciting 'hype'.  And so far all of the 'feedback' from people who have heard the album is getting me even more excited.  Ahhhhhhhh, is it March yet????? :D
