I especially love the binary code metaphor.

I believe it to be a sexual/phallic reference.

Hope he didn't hijack Mercy and give it to Coldplay

This album actually consists of Mercy chopped into 11 parts. A song was then inspired by each of those parts.

NLOTH the album = Mercy!

If you play the VLV LP backwards, every song is actually Mercy.

Confirmed rumor from Perez Hilton.

Not quite. Revionist reviews are usually pretty bad, but initially, they were absolutely glowing,

e.g.

"What we can say immediately is that Pop sounds absolutely magnificent. With Pop, they've defied the odds and made some of the greatest music of their lives." - Rolling Stone, 1997

But then that was back when people actually read Rolling Stone.

Sounds like a bitter Coldplay fan spreading rumours.

The real GOYB video would help tide us over till the Grammys, followed by the real reviews...

this video thing really is a mess at this point.

ok, so I've heard it lucky me... What else can I tell you?

For starters, I would like to hear it again + the more I recall the songs the more I feel the album is Zooropas older brother. Same kind of experimentation but with more muscle and directness.

Also similar to UF in that it shimmers in places and sounds vast and open.

Also similar to JT with Bonos vocals being so direct and effortless. Like a soaring bird.

Also similar to AB with some of the post modern lyrics, heavier guitar lines and dark finish.

Similar to Boy in that there is a wide eyed wonder and an almost childlike fascnation with all things big and shiny yet with raw undertones.

Not similar to pop.

Not similar to October.

Not similar to war.

Not similar to ATYCLB.

Not similar to HTDAAB.

Oh, similar to passengers with some syrupy synth work.

After only one listen, I think it is still part of a trilogy of albums, but with hints of the nxt triolgy. A metaphor for no line on the horizon because the album is an end, but also a beginning.
