New Member Introductions / Hello from a new member.
« Last post by Kevplunkett on August 10, 2019, 10:38:23 AM »
Hello and thank you. I just wanted to say Hello to everyone and thank the kind people who manage this page. My name is Kevin and I am from Philadelphia but live in California now. I have listened to U2 since I was seventeen (many years ago now:). My favorite records of the band are their first four records and in particular 'October' and 'The Unforgettable Fire' (although I first bought and loved 'War and soon thereafter very much appreciated 'Boy' as well.)
I would like to discuss the older music of U2 and in particular the influence of Dublin and Ireland in general as well as their youth and experience of life growing up in Dublin. Thank you for reading and thank everyone once again.

Kevin

General U2 Discussion / Re: When Will the Next U2 Album Be Released (Poll)
« Last post by laoghaire on August 10, 2019, 09:13:11 AM »
I think late 2022 or early 2023. I voted late 2022 because I like to be optimistic.

I think it will be all new stuff. I think Rubin and SOA are in the trash. Hopefully they can find a great producer, and that producer will not have to develop a serious drinking problem. I'd really like it to be Eno but I have serious doubts as to whether he would ever work with them again. I like Danger Mouse's work. Also, I'm very curious what a collab with Mark Ronson would sound like.

I do think that they are going to want to do another album. And I really want them to do another album. I'd like them to focus on making interesting music that is not formulaic but keeps changing/evolving over the course of the song so it stays fresh to the ear. Examples include Mofo, Zooropa, Unknown Caller (forget the lyrics and chants, the instrumental evolves marvelously), Little Things. For a non-U2 example, Bohemian Rhapsody. Also, stuff without a chorus, or a very understated chorus.

If they are starting afresh, ie new stuff, late 2022 at best. If they're jumping off something old, like SOA/Red One dance album/Rubin rock album maybe quicker. I also would not exclude AB30 tour / zoo 2.0 in 2021 or 2022.

New song “Fear Inoculum” out.  I don’t listen to this sort of music so much anymore, but not a bad song.  Sounds like Tool being Tool.

I will say, as a 90.2% U2 fan, and a 0.12% fan of Tool— the top two concerts I’ve ever been to were Tool, and they were done in such different ways from each other...

I did vote for a date - second half of 22 i think - but honestly - still not convinced where they go after these shows. I don't think we will see Songs of Ascent - I think they have done this part of their journey. So just not sure...
