I'd love for them to just do something unexpected, but it seems those days are long gone.

Some possibilities would be to continue that ambient style they were exploring on the The Million Dollar Hotel soundtrack, another would be this "future hymns" idea that Songs of Ascent was gonna be (which Moment of Surrender alluded to). Also the sessions from the NLOTH album before they were abandoned or the Rick Rubin sessions (though I rather they not work with Rubin as I don't think he's the right producer for them).

The RedOne dance album could be potentially interesting, or another Passengers project with a different direction, I mean, there are plenty of options. They don't need to return to Eno/Lanois, but I wouldn't mind.

I enjoyed SOE, but hopefully it is their last attempt at relevance and winning the pop kids. Let's go for something fresh and wild. Just lock them in a studio and whatever they make, release it. Don't sit on it for years on end, tinkering with it endlessly. Sometimes less is more.

Nicholas Jaar should work with U2 to create modern Aching Baby

There’s a way to stay relevant; controversial album name.

While I agree,I really enjoyed show when I was in new York. The biggest crime though was boy falls from the sky not being on a U2 album!

Still annoys me to this day - really wanted a studio version of that song.

If they wanted to be hip with "the kids", we'd already have the hip-hop album aimed at rhythmic Top 40. So that's never really been the deal at all.

The Spider-Man musical probably took several U2 songs and ruined them. That said, Boy falls from the sky was a complete U2 song. They could've at least released it as a single to promote the musical, perhaps. The fact that we never got a full studio version of that boggles my mind, in the same vein as "North Star". The fact that a full version was recorded, and even put into the god damn movie, and was never released is one of U2's more head scratch-worthy decisions.

Had Spiderman never happened, we'd probably have to endure "BOUNCING OFF THE WALLS!! BOUNCING OFF THE WALLS!!" at every U2 show now.
