Title: Has any fans come aboard from NLOTH?
Post by: U2alwaysforever on September 09, 2009, 04:09:47 PM
Seems like we had some new ones from ATYCLB and a few from HTDAAB, so anyone here who first got into U2 from No Line?

You really can't help yourself can you? The topic has nothing to do with "getting out" but rather getting on board. Don't complain that people attack you on this board when you continue to troll like this.

I got 'on board' with HTDAAB, but it was NLOTH which made me join the crew! ;) I was a very, very casual fan, this album was more than good enough to make me hardcore, basically. :)

Yes! I bought HTDAAB when I was 12, but never really got into it much (it's still low on my favourite albums list), and I had the best of the 80's but it didn't get much play. They I got NLOTH and I fell in love, listened to their entire back catalogue and was at Dublin 3. In fairness, I'm 17 so I wasn't around to get into them at any other stage...

On board for all 00s albums. NLOTH is playing frequently and I'm happy with it :)

 I see Johnny Amsterdam still has nothing better to do than to spread his dislike/negativity regarding this album. Really though - got nothing better to do? pathetic, really. Get over it. Some of us like it. You've repeated yourself for months now - what's the point?

The point is Not liking this album and making it known to the world. Why is that any worse than liking it? What's the purpose of this forum that we all look the same way? wouldn't that be just as boooooooring as the last  3 U2 albums?

I don't think the problem is you not liking it, or you saying this, more your insistence on saying it everywhere, including places which are intended for discussing other aspects such as POSITIVES of it...

I only really got into U2 over the last year, before that I was a very casual fan. And then NLOTH was released and I fell in love with U2 even more (if that's even possible). I wouldn't necessarily say this album made me a fan, because I'd discovered U2 with HTDAAB already, but it did make me more of a hard-ore fan :) However, my mum really got into U2 with this album. She never used to really like them, or listen to their music and since she heard NLOTH, U2 is all she listens to.

Well, after the minor suckfest of ATYCLB and the major suckfest of  HTDAAB  I almost went out, but NLOTH is keeping me on board a while longer.

It just needs attention. I fell for the troll trap long enough. The album is quite good and it stands on its own merits.

RE topic: No, got on board when I was bought the best of 1980-90 CD in the 90's. Listened to it all the time!

RE Jonny Amsterdam: Don't agree with his opinion, but agree with his point; this is a forum, for DISCUSSION and OPINIONS - he has evey right to criticze the new album if he wants to.

I personally don't think the new album is great but it's not bad either. Some good songs but the lyrics and composition in some places feels rather forced.

 hey Johnny - I hate to go on obvious assumptions, but do you indeed live in Amsterdam?

hey Ciaz,

I don't disagree one bit with what you said regarding Johnny Amsterdam... But, perhaps you aren't aware of the manner in which he practices his rights to opine(?) Trust me, he's only out here to take the pi*s. God forbid some of us who are entirely annoyed by his antics say something to call out his ridiculousness . If he were to confess that he is only 9 years old - I'd forgive him. His commentary hardly falls under DISCUSSION or OPINION. It falls under a desperate need to be heard and a fulfillment found only in taking the pi*s out of anything and everything to do with the last 3(?) albums.

Yes I live in Amsterdam. And yes I don't take the pi*s about of the three last albums. In my opinion U2 took a pi*s out of their huge talent with those last three album. They're way under parr quality sense for u2.

Johnny,

the reason why I asked if you were indeed from Amsterdam is that it amazes me that you have nothing better to do in Amsterdam? really? I have no issue at all with you disliking the last 3 albums - its of no consequence to me whatsoever. But, what gets me ( and other forum members out here ) is your need to poo all over any thread that even remotely discusses said material. It's almost like you're offended by the band. Maybe your disappointment in the band shouldn't be taken so personally.. You have all the freedom to do what you do out here - but trust me, it gets old. Get over it and put your energy into something a little more fulfilling - maybe(?) That is, unless ( and seemingly so ) you get your fulfillment occupying this forum with negativity ...

Hey these ar just post. It's not like I'm putting out a record. Any way I honestly have to laugh when I read all you so called tolerant fans. If you say something good about u2's latest underpar release every thing's good since the sun always must shines out of their... you know what. But if you complain about the decline of quality in their music you're a.. you know what.

To be honest I've noticed that you all like to look the same way and same the song and that's very boring. Any go ahead I'm not saying you shouldn't I'm just not with singing the same song with you if you don't mind.

Ah I can relate how that would become tiresome then, u2matters. I guess I just have not noticed it as much as everyone else. Didn't seem to be too bad in terms of trolling in this thread though.

I think a lot of NLOTH songs are better live, in relation to the topic. Breate, the title track, GOYB, MOS... my friends, who weren't too keen on the album when i played them a few tracks upon release, seemed to have got 'onside' after listening to it live. They stepped it up a notch from casual listener to slight fandom. Does that count?  ;)

At first, I didn't appreciate breathe all that much. But, I absolutely love it now - and it came to me after hearing it live also. Overall, I see the album as a whole - to be a real grower ( for lack of a description not already used a million times over )...
I'm quite amazed at the band's ability to perform a lot of the material live as well as they do. They are challenging songs. I'm 3 days removed from seeing the show live - excitement is mounting ( to say the least ). I'm looking forward to seeing how the show comes together - outside of the youtube experience!

Ouch!

I came on board a long time ago with U2; NLOTH just reaffirms to me that they are right where they should be in their development as a band. I think that cranking out 4 classic songs on an album (Magnificent, Breathe, NLOTH, and Moment of Surrender) at this stage of their career is an amazing feat.

That's fair - but Mr Amsterdam doesn't agree.

There are way too many people here that assume just because a person disagrees with something, they aren't entitled to their opinion.

Mr Amsterdam likes a certain period in U2's career - and he is allowed not to like the last 3 albums.

I don't like NLOTH at all, I like 2 or 3 songs on HTDAAB and half of ATYCLB.

So, I'm somewhere in the middle of the U2 mafia here and Mr Amsterdam.

I have never told anyone they aren't entitled to their opinion. But when it is repeated ad nauseum on any kind of thread imaginable, including those that are created for those people who actually like the album, then he becomes predictable and boring. I actually haven't seen anyone say that JA or anyone else isn't entitled to their opinion. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough?

Hahahhahhaa awesome! love some good german. I don't agree with your trolling, but I do love the early 90's era the most - its just awesome,
but I still really appreciate todays stuff, its still far far better than most of todays crap (IMO of course).

I knew of U2 before HTDAAB, but Vertigo caught my attention on the Apple adds. I bought the album, loved it, then bought their 90's best of (at the time I knew of their 80's stuff and ATYCLB, but had no clue about the 90's - its now my favourite era :D) - then I gradually bought everything else and finished the collection (apart from the cd version of Under A Blood Red Sky (though i have it on dvd) and Wide Awake In America - should they really be part of the collection? I guess so cause I dont feel like my collection is complete).

I was also curious if NLOTH created fans like what HTDAAB did for me. Somehow this album doesn't seem to have nearly as much publicity as their previous album :(

U2 are keeping with the times, their current music is modern and still really awesome and catchy like they've always made their music - simple riffs and awesome sound effects.

Wouldn't it be awesome for them to do a one-day recording of an album? as in create music on the spot - that produced Party Girl and I love the song, its got a great beat to it and such.

Anyway, U2 are awesome, it'll be good to hear from more people that NLOTH did it for them :)

[/quote]Yeah German is great to speak. AUSWEIS BITTE.
Anyway I'm not trolling. I'm just very critical of the last releases U2's work. How can the have such A great start till POP and have become so tame and boring these days.

I'm extremely disappointed in them not even trying any more to really wow us with their talent. They have it in them, but to me it feels like they've cowarded out.
And that's what's annoys me the most: you know that they have it in them but they're afraid of showing it beacuse they have the feeling that they made a mistake with POP. Like somebody said before it's better to try and fail than not to try at all. and the boys ain't even trying. Imagine yourself what would've happens if POP was a success?

Yeah your point is valid - I can understand you posting it in alot of forums, you feel strongly about it and are annoyed about it, so its fine to post your opinion.
Its similar to me mentioning the Loudness War whenever I remember it - its something that really annoys me about todays music (U2 included - they've made their albums really loud since POP, and the quality has sufferect cause of it - that could be partly why the songs dont have the same power as previous ones).

Everyone's different, I don't really mind what anyone says, cause its the internet, ppl can post what they want (of course with certain limits), its not going to get you killed, the internet is superficial, a bit of entertainment, people can use it how they want, but then at the same time, thats not the best way to put it - i dunno, everyone has a different viewpoint to whatever is said anywhere, your intentions of what you post may be different to how people interpret it.

I would love them to do something really non-mainstream, or more, I was really excited about their new album how they said they recon its an album concept similar to Achtung Baby (the whole "huge stylistic change from their previous album" thing) and it wasnt overly, so I was slightly dissapointed, but I still love the album - I noticed certain bits in the songs that reminded me of AB, so it got me to like it.

I can't speak german, but they're just such awesome people, the language is so funny cause "I love you" sounds more like you want to stab them XD.

I appreciate all their music, Vertigo got me into U2, but somehow I hardly listen to the song - its got its audience, and U2 are doing a decent job of keeping with the times, their music changes alot, and somehow I see AB, Zooropa and POP as similar in style (in some way or another) to those eras in time. The musical trends of today has declined since the 80's and 90's (well, i mainly only like U2's stuff from the 90's, I dont have a heap of other 90's music so that point is slightly flawed), its all lame pop rock stuff that all sounds samey, but people of today like that, and U2 are keeping with those times, so its good they can do that.

Well thats one way of looking at it.

Lets hope the music of the 10's gets better, in terms of a subsiding loudness war (or some form of new music technology for MP3's that allows good sound quality at todays stupidly loud volumes), and in terms of music in general.

What happened to the days of psycadelia and heaps of experimental pieces and such? progressive rock and the like?

On a positive note, I quite like the current Australian band Eskimo Joe - I somhow like their music, its somewhat U2-ish. I went to their concert and in one
of their songs they did this crazy awesome improvisational intrumental part on the spot, I loved it, but then the lead singer apologised, i dont know why :P

I've found I really enjoy 60's, 70's and 80's music cause there's some really awesome stuff there.

Joe G has a point - which Johnny Amsterdam clearly prefers not to address - for reasons up for interpretation...
He's stalking J.Amsterdam just like J. Amsterdam pounces and poos on anything and anybody remotely giving the last 3 albums approval. Just to be heard . He needs attention ( over and over and over again ). He appears to takes U2's output personally.  :'(  That's a hell of a way to flatter yourself, really.

STILL trying to find anyone who has said JA or anyone else is not entitled to their opinion. There's a major difference between telling someone they aren't entitled to their opinion and disagreeing with their opinion.
There he is again. You just can't stop folowing me around can't you?


Your answer isn't in this response. Just an FYI.
Geeh he's back again. Boring and predictable.

You could, but then he might just snidely insult you and refuse to answer while not admitting that he refuses to answer.

Where have I heard that before?

OK the forum preschool is dismissed for the day. Either you discuss the topic in a respectful manner or I'll have to put you in the TIME OUT chair.  ;)

Ich bin ein FOZZIE!!!!!!

To answer the thread question a different way, if I had never heard of U2 and someone gave me NLOTH as a starting point, it would definitely spark an interest in the band.

Du bist ein pannekoek meer niet. Maar goed je bent en blijft een saaie piet in mijn ogen. ok to back back on it. I still don't like their last three album. It's lacking compared to everything they've done till POP. Pop had great and daring moments. No inspiration on the horizon lacks that. They were so uninspired that they had to ask Daniel and Eno to help them writing Now if that isn't a sign.

If anything they were overinspired and needed Eno and Lanois' help to fine tune focus from the 60 plus songs that the band created.

Is IKEA having a sale or something?

I think that the "Crazy Tonight" Blackberry ad will pull a few people that haven't gotten the allbum over to NLOTH, as will the tour itself. I'm sure there's a percentage of people who are going to see U2 that don't have the album yet.
