Totally agree on the spiritual aspect of this album, sean. I notice that with every album, but it does seem to be more overt in some places here while still maintaining its universal themes that draw so many people to U2 in the first place. My favorites are "Magnificent", "Moment of Surrender", and "Unknown Caller", but I really love them all. Someone brought this up in "Goal is Soul", but for those of you who grew up in the church in any way, you might notice that the last 1:30 of "UC" including Edge's guitar solo, is the melody of the hymn, "My Savior's Love". I remember my grandma and my mom singing that song all the time when I was little.

I'm not hanging out for new albums, obsessing over band members, making ultimate playlists, or arguing why x album is better than y; so I am probably not a fan.

The reason that I hang around is because FYM is a good political forum where I am a minority of one, and I don't like discussions where people agrees with me, that inhibits original thought.
Well, a non-fan just hanging out here I can understand, but you have a silver membership. I cant honestly say Id pay to be a part of a site dedicated to something I have little or no interest in. Each to their own though.

I did have an interest in it, but interference has grown on me, I have no issue paying for a site which I use pretty frequently.

It's a U2 song that finds Edge playing the "blues".

You'd think that Silver & Gold would be a popular FYM tune.

I am not an FYM'er, so forgive the intrusion. I have completely lost track of what sort of membership I have, or how I got it/what I paid for it. What price senility?

Me too.

I should probably check my bank account to see what else I'm paying for that I'm unaware of.

You in litigation Anitram?

Seems to be the only growth business in the lawyerly world at the moment.

I was disappointed in the last two U2 albums, but I love NLOTH. It has some depth and complexity, something that I've been missing from the band for a long time. I realize it isn't experimental or groundbreaking, but at this point in U2's career I'm not really expecting that.

You can check to see when your subscription runs out by clicking on User CP, then scroll to down Miscellaneous and clicking on Paid Subscriptions.

I think everyone who had a Premium account when the site changed hands got an automatic six month (or was it four? I forget which) extension. And there are now two levels of Premium, but I'm not sure which level does what. Everyone who was Premium when the changes were made got upgraded to Premium Gold, but can change that when they renew.

I think.

I feel the same way. I feel like it's an early album. I love Eno as well. It has a bit of mystery to it, that the previous two didn't have.

What is really amazing to me, is how much I love hearing these songs live, so I'd love to see a live CD in the vein of UABRS too this year.

The news of a more intimate, even more spiritual album coming out this year has me even more intrigued.

I'm into it.

Favorites -- MOS, UC, WAS, COL, but I love the rest of them too.

I'm not, actually.

I totally get that there might be FYM regulars that aren't necessarily huge U2 fans. After all there might be a reason they come mainly to this forum. But I'm curious as to how such people found Interference and thus FYM in the first place?

Were you more of a fan when you signed up, A_W, and then the interest faded over time but you stuck around for the scintillating discussion on global affairs?

I found Intereference while looking for tickets to U2's gigs in Japan (the site--in particular one member, Rambling Rose, I believe it was--was VERY helpful in that regard. I ended up holding a VIP pass and right up in front just across from Adam). It's funny because I was actually warned AWAY from FYM when I first joined. Don't go to that forum, I was told. It's just a bunch of arguing. I ignored their advice and the rest is history.

There's only one as far as I'm concerned. I don't really care for Stand Up Comedy. I'm not a big fan of Boots either, but I don't hate it.
