I've listened on/off the past couple of weeks since its debut. I enjoyed the Edge talk show and Paul Oakenfold's "Discotheque" slot. I haven't really immersed myself and just kept it on all day across devices. But from the time I've spent with it, frankly I'm a little underwhelmed by it. Do we need Matthew McConaughey playing "New Year's Day" or do we really need to hear "One" or "Stuck In A Moment"? It seems like most of the playlists and overall content are aimed at casual fans or growing a new audience. Maybe they will add a "Deep Cuts Only" hour? I would be thrilled to hear "Indian Summer Sky" followed by "Luminous Times".

The Music and Lyrics / Re: Any chance U2 will remix Pop during lockdown?

Pop could have been hailed as a classic in a similar way 'The Bends' & 'OK Computer' were around the same time. 

U2 were at their creative peak after 20 years of recording. TJT & AB showed they were not phased by expectation. Focusing solely on POP & a 1996 release would have resulted in another masterpiece.

Instead the mixed reception to the album & tour resulted in the next album being much safer.

But not complaining as liked the other projects during the 93-97 period.

Pop does sound like it needs another 6 months work. Not to improve existing songs. But to create new songs.

The best songs didn't really need any tinkering - Discoteque, DYFL, Mofo, SATS, LNOE, Gone. But another two or three songs of that quality was needed instead of fluff like IGWSIA.

Not complaining. I liked the other projects they did between 93-97. If they hadn't of booked the Pop tour, the album may have been a much longer wait.

Would hope they are working on a new album instead. Nearly 3 years since SOE.

Does anyone know has there been ANY update on this film of the 2017 Jt tour. Apparently does ages ago and would much rather see this than the boring berlin thing that just came out..
From my understanding, it is scheduled to be released in late 2020 . . . . . maybe November or December.

Now THIS IS THE SHOW I wish they had done in the States.

Instead we got a rehash of the first half of the I+e show and an under rehearsed U2 still trying to figure it out.

Glad they at least filmed this last show so that I could see it.

My original idea was from a quote I think attributed to Bono where he expressed a desire to "finish that album".  So I guess that's a remaster / re write scenario but I agree zero chance of that.  But it did seem to frustrate the band how rushed the album was to the finish line in order to get ready to tour it.

Absolutely love this era of their music. Of course I want a new record and tour but if the songs of innocence and experience were the last release, wow what a great way to end.
