Yes they did...and ATYCLB is a great album. But if it makes you feel any
better "Daniel Lanois with Brian Eno" also have us Achtung Baby. Also a great album and maybe a little more up your alley.

At this point I don't expect a U2 album to change the world or fuck up the mainstream or redefine "cool." 14-22 year olds look at U2 the way I looked at the Stones in '86. As a curiosity with a great back catalogue, but not in any
way contemporary. And fair or not 14-22 year olds define what's cool, not 34 year old farts like me.

I just want a great album with great songs...and that's not too much to ask for is it?

You also realize that AB was a Danny Lanios with Brian Eno album. Danny was very frustrated, but was there from start to finish. Eno would come in and give his pointers, then leave. They said it was very fresh, and easier on Brian to do it that way.

Well, it's more trust-worthy than Bono's comments prior to Bomb's release that it was the band's first guitar record -- suggesting it had more pronounced guitar-work than even "Achtung Baby". Also, no one is saying this record is the best U2 record, unlike Bono who said Bomb might be U2's best record, which was pure nonsense; it was their most Coldplay record, for sure, ie "City of Blinding Lights", "Sometimes You Can't Make it..".

I just hope the lyrics are mature and not the drivel Bono's been writing the last 2 albums, except "Stuck in a Moment", which was pretty great.

I do realize that, so I'm not sure if I'm optimistic or not.

I'd agree that the ATYCLB singles are better than the Bomb ones (save COBL and Vertigo), but overall Bomb > ATYCLB for me... yes, they need to make it better than Bomb.

No, as I first became a U2 fan in '95 or so. And it's taken a long time for each release since then.

Not a chance in hell. It might struggle to sell 10 mill in 2 years.
