Actually, the original album was probably around 60-some minutes and they added in "Last Dance" and the excellent "Homesick" on the CD, but your point holds that it's still great.

If you really think 53 minutes is "very long", YOU need to listen to more U2 albums.

He said long, not very long, there's a difference.

53 minutes is long enough imo. It doesn't matter how long the goddamn songs are anyway, it's about the songs themselves.

Stop starting threads based on information that is very old and has been discussed over and over. Seriously.

And how many albums are longer? Rattle and Hum doesn't really count and Pop and AB are both pretty close. I'd say this lands on the "very long" end of the U2 spectrum.

You know you have problems when you go to such great lengths to call Bono a liar...

Seriously...

I've always wondered, since I joined, how things went here when HTDAAB got leaked...

It was fine. Most people were too excited at the time for there to be too much bitching and moaning and it seemed the bitching there was, was just ignored.

I think this time will be similar. There will be too much excitement to worry about people moaning.

Now a few days or weeks after the leak will be a different story.

I'm not sure if Jesus Christ is a fan of rock music, but if he was I'd bet he's have a couple of U2 albums in his catalogue

Thanks...

But what about the forum itself? Everything became a mess? Chaos?

almost everybody thought the album was amazing when it leaked... even many of those who now say it's terrible.
