keep dreaming for a double album.

a logical scenario is a few actual legitimate b-sides to the singles instead of covers or live recordings or the chris brown , kanye west and trent reznor remix of slug.

perhaps a longer album as well, maybe 13 songs? at VERY best. that is being an extreme optimist.

Wild honey may be weaker than the songs that precede it but it works on a pop album such as ATYCLB, plus it's a good companion to IALW. The real weakest link is Elevation.

With A man and woman around, Crumbs is filler ?

The HTDAAB-sessions produced 25 songs, if i remember correctly, so 30 songs really isn't that much. Hopefully they just choose the best and most 'innovative' songs, and not make it a double album. And like almost every U2 album, the new album will contain 10-12 songs.

As long as they give me enough time to save up for the tour, that's all I care about.

I don't think so. Already in 2006 there were 4 songs almost finished, one of them becoming Window in the Skies. So i think they must at least have about 15 almost finished songs.

When someone meets the band, they need to bring up the fact that as fans, we would rather hear 2 or 3 original b-sides on the singles rather than the endless remixes we had on Vertigo. Not that they were all bad, but, come on, I had a hey day picking up all the ATYCLB singles (as well as some of the Achtung ones) just for the original B-sides. Remixes are okay, but, they barely sell it for me.

Oh man, whoever meets the band should make a looooong list of stuff that fans demand. Maybe they'll break up and never finish the album as a result. I feel sorry for the guys.

I generally feel sorry for multimillionairs, too. Life is rough when you know you could buy a tropical island to live the rest of your life on with a staff of 400 women waiting to meet your.every.demand.

Not much of a financial point in producing b-sides. As much as I loved the JT heyday of great extra material, I don't think it's something they are going to return to. The market has changed too much. I mean, what is a "single" anymore anyway? And if they have something of quality, they are not going to squander it on the romantic ideal of replicating the great 45's or EP's of the past.

The band will continue to hoard material for the next project. It's just a reality.

Get ready for remixes and live stuff. Again.
