Maybe! Should I see how long I can go? Test my willpower? Or should I be a normal person and listen to other music? If so, what?

life is full of difficult decisions...

I listened to nothing but U2 for a month to get all pumped up for the new album. Now that I have the album I've been listening to nothing but that
Just keeping listening to them if you're still in the mood

That's exactly what I did!! I decided I was gonna listen to nothing but U2 until the album leaked. I even deleted everything else from my iPod then it leaked, and so i listened to nothing but that. I've now branched out to other U2 but I'm not sure if I'm ready to go to the outside world. If I break my streak it has to be for something pretty amazing, no? What song is worth it?

I've listened to more U2 in the last week than I have in the last year

I've been enjoying discovering other bands, and I've especially been getting more into jazz. It's been nice to be away from them.

I've gone through many periods where I wasn't into U2 as much...especially when I'm into much heavier music...U2 isn't exactly heavy. But now, I mean, I dunno, if I listen to something else I'll feel ...dirty

There's a very nice list.
Even my second favorite band is miles away from U2 in my rank, but it's always nice to hear something else.

I have the new album on repeat since last friday, before that I had NLOTH2 on repeat, before that I had Boots on repeat.

Last year I had WITS on repeat for.. three months or so.. after 999 listens I went back to shuffle.

I think I'm a bad example.

I only gets to play "No Line" repeatedly in my head (until I get my hand on the actual CD). Right now, I'm listening to some old U2, some "Street Fighter 4" soundtrack, some electro-jazz hip hop mp3s, and two new songs from the band "Metric".

US or U2?

I liked the CD when it was leaked, I havent played it for a week or so. I think I played it 10 times total. I just dont have the energy for the U2 hype machine this time around, to be honest. It's too draining and vampiric

With NLOTH, I have decided to absolutely overdose on all things U2. BBC, Letterman, extra tracks, homemade iPod tracklists, youTube clips, you name it. You have to enjoy it while it's here: a spectacular album, where most of the songs appear to be even better when played live. That hasn't happened really since Zoo TV!
