I think that was my favorite part of this thread.

The 2! For when you can't be bothered with that extra syllable of "U." But .... oh. "the" is one syllable, too.

I guess I'll just go with 2. I'll call them 2 now.

Great so I guess I have to read this whole thread then.

I think "the 2" should be a tag on this thread.

How could this not be better.
Time moves fast. With a lot of media moving into the internet age and the slow death of print, perhaps the music media has gotten younger in the last 5 years? I can tell you that I'm almost 26 now and its a freaking fluke that I got into U2. Up until Elevation came out I had no idea who U2 was. After Elevation came out I only knew U2 as the band with that guy howling like a wolf. It wasn't until Achtung Baby was pounded into my skull after getting rides to and from campus from my older brother (he worked nearby) that I started to get an awareness of U2. And when Electrical Storm hit the radio thats when I finally took the plunge.

At that time barely any of my friends knew about U2. I did manage to introduce at least half a dozen people to them and 3 or 4 of them became big fans, but still, U2 was not very popular among the young crowd. Beautiful Day was a little bit of a hit, and Vertigo was a bigger hit due to the iTunes commercial.

U2 is in a tough spot commercially. Its been 5 years since Vertigo and once again there is a new commercial audience and perhaps a new critical audience. For the old critics, they are not likely to be any easier to U2 with each passing album.

In some ways this album is in the same position as Pop. The band has had a streak of massive success, people who know them are starting to get sick of U2, and the younger audience don't really know U2 that well because its been a while since their last major release.
