Title: Alright! Lets Settle This Once And For All!
Post by: Miami66 on February 15, 2011, 08:06:47 PM
There are clearly two camps in the "new album" discussion: those who believe that it'll be released before the 360 Tour is over and those who do not. I want to finish this so I need two things from you. 1) Vote in the poll, and 2) Post your vote so I can make a list.

Lets not bite off anyone's head here, this is just a friendly sort-of game. ;)


I vote yes they will.


**The list is in the next post**

Yes, but I'm not confident about it.  With each passing day, I'm getting closer to "No."

I believe we get what we envision, so YES, there will be an album in May. ;D


I hope.

Post by: Sydney_Mike on February 16, 2011, 03:33:35 AM
No.

McGuiness only said it would be releaased in "May", he never actually made a firm commitment to 2011. Based on past performance, I am feeling more confident of a release in May 2012  ;)

But it depends on how long the 360 tour goes on for .  ;D

i voted yes. i think they're trying to dampen down the hype this time around and are aiming to surprise people rather than get their hopes up.
Title: Re: Alright! Lets Settle This Once And For All!

How can I vote for this without knowing for sure?  :P

They have too much to lose. Yes they'll put SOMETHING out before the US dates.
Title: Re: Alright! Lets Settle This Once And For All!

right now its 52-12 in favor of a new album b4 360 is done.

Yes, they better, or some major a$$ kicking will occur when I get over to the UK this fall.  >:( ::)

Did you see the latest article on @U2? I'm not so sure we're getting said album, guys.
Title: Re: Alright! Lets Settle This Once And For All!

Yes.

Post by: JamietheEdgefan on February 18, 2011, 03:48:46 PM
Conversely, i think Q has confirmed u2 for Glastonbury's friday night slot. If so, i think that certainly improves the odds of a may album - i bet new material (that actually contains hits and pleases mainstream crowds) would really help the performance more than the No Line songs, considering u2 want to be relevant and 'with it', which i'd bet is why they're doing Glastonbury at all.

If you really want to get masochistic, you should try refreshing the page every ten minutes like I do. I find myself getting all pi**ed at Matt when there's no new album news.

I voted no because I'm pessimistic. And I want to be wrong. But I'll continue with my happy pessimism, k?

ATTENTION U2!

You are driving your fans into a maddening state of masochism and self-deprecation to the extreme. It is therefore your moral duty to release an album.....TOMORROW (Yes, MG, Tomorrow was on October  :P :D). So, um, yeah U2, GET ON IT.

This is the most overstated post I've read to date.  Having said that.....I'm down.  Just make sure my baggie has my logo on it.  If I'm going down, I'm going down in style.

Dude, the current fan club debacle is the only thing that has ever made me question the band themselves.  Seriously, how can you give out Duels with a clear conscious?  I hope the band has no knowledge of this.  Otherwise, they must think I'm retarded.

Given how anal U2 is about their reputation and image, there is NO WAY that they did not greenlight Duals. It probably wasn't their idea, but they definitely signed off on it.

PS - Maybe instead of all of us killing ourselves, we should all switch to Radiohead avatars on this forum. Plus, it'll pi*s off all the kids on here who think that Beautiful Day is vintage U2!

While my wife put together my avatar for me and I can never change it, I totally understand what you are saying.  If the members of U2 thought their serious fans would like Duels, there is a serious disconnect.  I have most of these songs, guys.  Give me some bang for my fifty bucks.  Larry, if you greenlit this, I'm going to be heartbroken.  You know bull$#%& when you see it, and this is bull$#%&.  Just give me the audio from a concert and I'll be happy.  That's all I need.

Speaking of which, we should all threaten suicide over the fanclub debacle. Crying "WOLF!" is rad.

Dude, the current fan club debacle is the only thing that has ever made me question the band themselves.  Seriously, how can you give out Duels with a clear conscious?  I hope the band has no knowledge of this.  Otherwise, they must think I'm retarded.

Given how anal U2 is about their reputation and image, there is NO WAY that they did not greenlight Duals. It probably wasn't their idea, but they definitely signed off on it.

PS - Maybe instead of all of us killing ourselves, we should all switch to Radiohead avatars on this forum. Plus, it'll pi*s off all the kids on here who think that Beautiful Day is vintage U2!

While my wife put together my avatar for me and I can never change it, I totally understand what you are saying.  If the members of U2 thought their serious fans would like Duels, there is a serious disconnect.  I have most of these songs, guys.  Give me some bang for my fifty bucks.  Larry, if you greenlit this, I'm going to be heartbroken.  You know bull$#%& when you see it, and this is bull$#%&.  Just give me the audio from a concert and I'll be happy.  That's all I need.

Preferably an indoor Zoo TV show.

Again, we are on the same page.  I will take all the MacPhisto you can give me.  And when you run out of Zoo TV shows to give me, feel free to give me some Pop show.  MOST UNDERRATED ALBUM EVER!!!!  Seriously, if you don't like Pop, we can't be friends.

Nola. Pop is my all time favorite album, not just by U2, but anyone!.

Dude, I hear you.  Actung Baby happens to be my favorite, but I totally understand where you're coming from.  I remember when Pop came out thinking "Why isn't this album huge?  It's so much better than anything else that's out right now, and it's not even close."  It made me sad that it was so overlooked.  I was in high school at the time and nobody else even noticed it.  I was like, "You are all retarded.  This is greatness."

Yeah, I was living in Europe at the time and was stoked that it came out a day earlier there. I was at the record shop that morning and was just blown away. I like Zooropa better because it means more to me, but Pop is a stronger set of songs to be sure.

Any chance either of you will be at the Seattle show?

I wish.  I live in New Orleans, a town that the band has forgotten about when it comes to tours.  They'll do charity here, but not a concert.  I would gladly overlook the abomination that was the Marshawn Lynch run to be a part of the Seattle show.  Unfortunately, airline tickets are expensive and I won't be there.  If you will be, cheer some for me.

I'm a believer. There will be a new album before the 360 tour is over.

Indeed. Our Guiness here sucks, though.

(But who needs Guiness in the Pacific Northwest, where our ales are second to none?)

Nice. Thats a good beer.

You know what I miss most of all TD, a good old pint of Bitter, they don't know what that is here in the States. Boddingtons is the worlds best drink for me. Ahhhh, sits back and imagines a nice pint of Boddies.  :P

Better get back on topic eh.

I've changed my mind. I think there will be a new album in 5 days time.

Oh wait, sorry, that's Radiohead  :D

No one visiting Seattle from anywhere is allowed to drink anything but our locally-brewed ales. It's a city ordinance.

I'm just breaking in here to say that I think Seattle is awesome city. I was there last summer for a week visiting a friend and participating in STP (Seattle-to-Portland Bicycle Classic). Very bike friendly city. Great beer, great chocolate (4220 Phinney!!). LOVED IT.

No, based on the past I doubt we'll see a new album this year.

Damn straight! Washington & Oregon: the two best states in the country for microbrews and great beer.

It's one of the many reasons why the Pacific Northwest is the best area on the face of the Earth.

Yes! I miss the PNW; I've been stuck here on the East Coast for too long.

Anyways...can I change my vote?  :D
