Title: It's Official: New U2 Album is Called NO LINE ON THE HORIZON
Post by: Nielsen on December 18, 2008, 12:56:43 PM
Can't say I'm surprised since that title was heard and said over the past year or so. And the release date for NLOTH? It's 2nd March on Monday  :)

Happy Christmas everyone  ;D

Yeeeesssss! U2 albums, more than anything else, make me so excited. I actually really like that title and have since I heard it. Can't wait for March 3rd, 2009, and everything in between (single, video, artwork etc.). It's always cool to have a different U2 themed design that always corresponds with an album. The red HTDAAB chevrons have been getting old for me lately. Anyways, here we go boys and girls...

How many days till the leak?
 
All I have to say is 2008 was an amazing year for me as a Coldplay fan. From the new album, to seeing them at the Pemberton Festival to a surprise EP. I have been spoiled. Nothing beats the feeling you get when your favorite band is going to release new music. Going online everyday to check out the news. Listening non stop to the single. Its amazing!

Now Coldplay are quiteing down, I get it with my all time favorite band...the gods of it all: U2. I have been waiting since 2005 when i fell in love with the band. Now I'll be in line to get the album. To buy concert tickets, and put the album on repeat for the year. U2, please dont disappoint.

Cherish these feelings guys! As we know they dont come often! only 72 to go! And an amazing 72 there gonna be!

Viva La U2

I hope so. It's awesome. Plenty of room at the top of the picture for the title. And the way Edge is slightly blocked is  a very artistic touch.

So you know for sure that's not a red herring?

Also, it's slightly disappointing that once again we have to abbreviate an album title to use it casually. This time it's Enloth, which sounds slightly like some sort of black prog metal album in the vein of Meshuggah. Of course, if Larry has adopted that kind of drumming then I for one have no issue.

Thanks Matt. Don't you think its appearance on Amazon is an indication that this is the cover, though?

As for the five options, the HTDAAB special edition's DVD and book weren't worth it to me. It didn't even include the lyrics, and I hated not having a CD case to put the disc in, which is more convenient and better for the disc than a cardboard sleeve. In the end, I went out and bought the plain old CD. Unless Anton's film is really good, I won't be making the same mistake again. As Vlad says, all that matters is the music.

Well usually U2 album come in 3s; Single worded albums: Boy, Octobor, War; The Unforgettable Fire, The Joshua Tree, Rattel and Hum etc.

And now U2 has developed Long-Title Album-itus >.<

Not necessarily; sometimes they just put the picture up for the sake of it, because a grey space doesn't market well.

Actually, I contradicted myself there, but meh.

Just an assumption but the fact that U2.com included "girls.....with boots" speaks for itself. But as I said: an assumption.

Actually, you are quite right - we have a choice, and I will be one of the ones choosing the $13.98 version, probably at Costco for $11.98.  All of the collector stuff is great and all, but it is really about the music, and I would guess that 95-99% of folks will get the standard $13.98 CD.

Angry at them? For giving fans a choice? What's wrong with that? There's a version for every budget. I'd get angry if the only thing they offered were the limited edition specials, but you can get the music for $10. Isn't that what it's about -- the music?

I'm guessing since the Vinyl edition has 2 records, the album itself will probably be in the 60-70 minute range....does anyone think it might actually be that long?
Title: Re: It's Official: New U2 Album is Called NO LINE ON THE HORIZON
Post by: Nielsen on December 20, 2008, 01:41:23 PM
Well there is rumour that it might be a double album; Paul McGuinnes was saying that they were using technology to find an interesting way to release the album on the CD format and that has certainly got my interest (I'm more of a CD person anyway; I get laughed at in my College for purchasing music. Well I say at least I care about my band and music  :P)
  A $100 album? Can't say I'm surprised. Here in England, HTDAAB was £16- possibly the most expensive studio I've seen ($32-$35).
Title: Re: It's Official: New U2 Album is Called NO LINE ON THE HORIZON
Post by: Revolver7 on December 20, 2008, 01:49:37 PM
Well, the CD version in America is $9.99 on Amazon...the 2 LP Vinyl is $17.98

$9.99 is way too cheap for a double album...if the rumour that U2 is releasing 1 album via CD and 1 album Digitally is true, then I'm guessing the Vinyl Format must have both albums...

Or, the alternative is that it's just a long album. Chinese Democracy was released as a single CD and a 2 LP Vinyl Set

Title: Re: It's Official: New U2 Album is Called NO LINE ON THE HORIZON
Post by: Revolver7 on December 20, 2008, 02:19:51 PM
Maybe!  ;D Only time will tell

I hope they do another iTunes commercial! If they have another big commercial, like with "Vertigo", U2 probably could have another Top 10 hit in the US
Title: Re: It's Official: New U2 Album is Called NO LINE ON THE HORIZON
Post by: Nielsen on December 20, 2008, 02:42:45 PM
But they've got to top Coldplay's one- I admit that was very colourful. Certainly encouraged me to buy their album :P Maybe the return of The Fly in the commercial?
Title: Re: It's Official: New U2 Album is Called NO LINE ON THE HORIZON
Post by: Revolver7 on December 20, 2008, 02:48:37 PM
I think they could top Coldplay's....U2 has got plenty of money, and they're are plenty of artists and designers that could make something innovative and spectacular...

I would love the Fly to return  ;D but I think Bono is too old...he would have to let his hair grow out again, and he wouldn't be able to wear the jacket with no shirt on underneath it, like in the Fly music video...

But either way, if there is a commerical, I'm sure there will be some cool sunglasses involved!  ;)

Doubtful. Nobody gets a top 10 in America anymore unless they append "ft. Akon" or "ft. Rihanna" to said song. Depressingly this isn't far off the mark in the UK either.

You'd be suprised what an iTunes Television commercial can do for an artist. It gives them more airplay and more exposure than the radio ever could. This usually leads to a big boom in digital sales, which will usually result in the song being catapulted into the top 10 or top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100. However, they might not stay high on the charts for a long period of time though...it all depends.

"Viva La Vida" by Coldplay is a great song, but I don't know if it would have been #1 in the US without the great commercial it had

I'm just talking about here in America. In the UK, things may be different.

I'm just talking about here in America. In the UK, things may be different.

I live in the UK and I am happy to say that rock has a firm grip here; The Killers, Keane, Oasis, Razorlight, Metallica, Coldplay (a whooping 6 weeks) , Kings of Leon, The Script have all scored #1 albums here. U2 is no exception: their last album stayed at #1 for 3 weeks and Vertigo was top download for more than a month (Unfortunately all these great artists have left me strapped for cash :P).

I do see your point about Viva La Vida; I assume that it wouldn't have reached #1 without the ad (look at Violet Hill- I think it was within the top 50 of the Billboard 100 and Speed of Sound reached #8 because of the ad).

And as for UK music: the beginning of the year a lot of R&B artists were releasing here but from summer onwards rock/pop/indie have dominated here; Duffy (a wonder soul singer) and Coldplay (well you know who they are) are battling it out to see who has the best selling album of the year. I think the UK is far less commercial than the US and gives all genres a chance - but do inform me if that isn't the case  :P

No, you're absolutely right!  ;D From what I've heard, and from what I've seen, the UK Music Scene is a lot less commercial than the US

I love Duffy, Coldplay Kings of Leon, The Killers, Keane, Oasis, and Metallica!

Rock bands here in the US do well...but they aren't as mainstream as they are in the UK

I think it has to do with the crappy state of US Top 40 radio...they only play a set amount songs from certain artists...usually, rap and pop stuff....

I think if any artist is going to break into the US they may have to risk losing their individuality (but in the case of U2 and Coldplay thats not the case  ;D). It's such a shame though: I really love American artists and the talented and independent ones either get shunned and told to sit in a corner or forced to show bare skin (Britney and *shivers at the image* Madonna- the Hard Candy sleeve is one of the last things I want to see >.<).

I think the CD/magazine one looks like it works for me (the $50.00 one) because I'll have some extra Christmas money.

being a teenager, i think the one with the posters and booklet for 35 is the best bet for me. i love that they are giving us a choice! $100? not for me unless its half my Christmas gifts...

Oh, Revolver & Edges, don't get me started on the state of radio here. I know I spoke of it in another thread. Did you catch the American Music Awards a few weeks ago? The highlights for me were Coldplay's performance and Annie Lennox receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award.  Then I thought-mmm, they're British! Now we can do better than that. Must the rest of the world think that is the best America has to offer to the music industry? :(

America has some great music...it's just that the good rock bands don't get the airplay they deserve  :'(

It's crazy that The Killers and Kings of Leon are bigger in the UK than they are in their homeland...

But anyway, I don't want to get off topic... ;)

Seeing as we have a choice of 5 versions ranging from $13.98 - $95.98 I cant look at U2 right now...I will be back tomorow!

I am so angry at them!

Angry at them? For giving fans a choice? What's wrong with that? There's a version for every budget. I'd get angry if the only thing they offered were the limited edition specials, but you can get the music for $10. Isn't that what it's about -- the music?

(ADDED: Okay, I'm just repeating what others have said. Should've read the whole thread before replying. I'll shut up now.)

Yes I know that but me being a student with £22 in the bank how do they expect me to buy stuff like that! Its hard enough trying to stay alive!

Oh, Revolver & Edges, don't get me started on the state of radio here.

It isn't that bad, as long as you choose a good station. In Chicago, I listen to WXRT 93.1, which has been around for a looooooong time. It plays a very good selection of music, and a lot of U2.

Well at least 2009 will be a good year for U2; all the other top tier bands have all released in 2008 and U2 can come in and take their crown back from Coldplay :P

Bono: "Thanks Mr. Martin for warming up my seat."

Another album, another (insert new U2 milstone.....and usually there is a lot  ;) )

Yeah, if you live in a big city. If you live in a small city, then believe me, there is literally nothing to listen to. Even the oldies station started playing 80s music.

Nickelback's high position reflects the fact that it's currently selling a lot of copies....and the fact that it's selling a lot of copies reflects the poor taste of the people who are buying it...

Either way, Nickelback wasn't that high on pre-orders nearly 3 months before it's release

I've been skeptical about the double album thing all the way along, but when I saw on Amazon that the booklet that accompanies the "CD only" option is 24 pages long, I got a bit excited. It wouldn't be 24 pages of photos. Could that much page space be required to contain the credits to 22 songs?

Also, what's a "jewel case"? For the reason above, I'm hoping there's no such thing and that it's a misspelling of "dual case". But that might be pushing it.

At Amazon's $9.99, I hardly think this is going to be a 2 Disc album... I own many of U2's vinyl offerings, and it isn't unusual for them to be on 2 LP's.  An LP just can't hold as much as a CD, so it isn't unusual for a 1 disc album to come on 2 LP's.  Rattle and Hum is the obvious one, but if I remember right a couple of the more recent albums were also released on 2 LP's. I'd have to dig them out of their storage to be certain.

It wouldn't surprise me though if some of the more expensive editions have a bonus CD of some sort.  Radiohead did this with the special edition of In Rainbows. I'm not sure the 2nd disc was worth it, but it was there.

The rumor that I shared in one of my OTR columns a couple months ago was that one album would be released on CD, the other only via online services. That may have changed, and maybe there won't be a 2nd album, but we never heard anything about 2 CDs.

U2 albums are so much about the whole being greater than the sum of the parts, I don't see them attempting a double album. That said I am hoping for a double album just as much as all of you guys!

From the latest information on the Q minisite, I assume it's not a double album - unless Q have been ordered not to give the surprise away by reviewing more than ten to twelve songs. I have to say, I was relieved at the idea of a single disc with twelve stunners. Quantity, it turns out, is not my priority.

Post by: adam1 on December 22, 2008, 02:34:16 PM
It's virtually impossible to release a full double disc album these days. A single CD holds 80 minutes of music. If the average song lenght is five minutes, it would take 16 songs to fill it. A double would be 32 songs.

I suppose U2 could put 50 odd minutes on two CD's and make it a double. That would mean 20 odd songs. That would be great. But as someone else has said 'Q' have only mentioned a dozen or so songs. 
Title: Re: It's Official: New U2 Album is Called NO LINE ON THE HORIZON
Post by: Nielsen on December 22, 2008, 02:57:22 PM
I doubt they will produce a double album - it's not really reinventing the CD format (Red Hot Chilis recently done it).
Title: Re: It's Official: New U2 Album is Called NO LINE ON THE HORIZON
Post by: adam1 on December 22, 2008, 03:46:04 PM
It's perhaps a bit optimistic everyone expecting a double. HTDAAB was a four year wait and that had twelve songs. Eleven if you don't count 'Fast Cars' which was'nt on a lot of the CD's.

They may have got together 50 odd ideas, songs or song fragments, but they probably want all the songs on 'No Line' to flow in a certain direction. Songs that sound totally different won't be included. I'd like a Beatles sytle 'White Album' which had 30 odd songs different to each other with no direction. It even had a few howlers. But I'm sure 'No line' will be worth the wait.

It's a word you use when the author is writing his/her 1723rd article and he/she is now on their third thesaurus trying to find a word that expresses something vaguely like what they want to say but have said 1722 times before.

My guess is that the guitar in that song features quick, sharp attacks with space left in between.

Quote from: www.u2miracle.com
U2 presentará "Get Your Boots On" en la Macworld
 
   Domingo, 28 de Diciembre de 2008
           U2Miracle.com
   
      Los miembros de U2 estarán el próximo 6 de Enero en la Macworld en donde se presentará el primer single de "No Line On The Horizon"

El próximo 6 de Enero en el Moscone Center de San Francisco (EE.UU) tendrá lugar la presentación inaugural de la Macworld. Hemos podido conocer por medio de Pedro Aznar, coordinador jefe de la web española Applesfera, que está confirmada la presencia de los miembros de U2 en San Francisco.

Según Pedro Aznar, la presentación será dada por Philip Schiller, vicepresidente senior de Marketing de Producto Mundial de Apple y en la misma será presentado en directo el primer single "Get Your Boots On" y Apple sacará el 16 de Febrero una edición especial del iPhone (RED).

El single "Get Your Boots On" estará a la venta en primicia el mismo día 6 de Enero y el nuevo disco de U2 se podrá comprar en la iTune Store dos semanas antes de su lanzamiento. Junto con el disco incluirá cinco temas que no serán publicados en la versión CD, más el video de la canción "Get Your Boots On". También se pondrá a la venta la reedición del toda la discografía de U2, "The Complete U2", que ya publicó en el año 2004, actualizada con los nuevos temas del disco "No Line On The Horizon".

Agradecemos a Pedro Aznar que se haya puesto en contacto con nosotros y U2Miracle.com os ofrecerá el próximo 6 de Enero a las 19:00 horas un seguimiento de la presencia de U2 en la Macworld.



Ok, for those who don't speak spanish...
I haven't got the time right now to translate the whole text, but here are the highlights:

1) U2miracle.com contacted Pedro Aznar (Chief coordinator of the Spanish Apple website), who confirmed that the band will be present on January 6th at the Moscone Center in San Francisco in the inaugural event of the MACWORLD.
2) The band will be there presenting the first single of the new album, the single is "GET YOUR BOOTS ON".
3) The single will be availiable on iTunes after the event.
4) the album will be on iTunes two weeks before the release date (March 2nd) and it will include 5 new songs that won't be released in the CD version, plus the music video for the single.
5) THE COMPLETE U2 will be also availiable, including the new album....

 

so that's about 9 freaking days for the new single!!!!
Enjoy the ride!!!! It's not official but the source seems to be reliable....


 ;D  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D


I'm so sorry everyone.... the s**pid a**s at u2miracle said it was a practical joke for april fool's.... celebrated in spain the 28th of December...
I'm very sorry...
and I'm very very pi**ed.... really..... the april fool's joke is supossed to be a very ridiculous thing and that you believe it anyway... but this was never something ridiculous... I'm very sorry...

Hmmmm. Well, to be fair, there are lots of rumors of another project with Apple coming soon. The thing that makes it less believable is the part about U2 showing up at MacWorld. Steve Jobs has already announced he won't be there, and you'd think he would show up if U2 were doing an event....

I was a little concerned about having to buy the album twice (a physical copy, and on iTunes to get the bonus tracks)
