I downloaded it. It's really solid, and probably his most diverse album. At times, it delves into blues, gospel, and jazz. If I have to compare though, I'd say it's most similar to his album Shine.
The instrumental tracks probably stand out as my favorites. If he's writing and playing like this on the new U2, we're in for a real treat.

I am ashamed to admit that I still haven't downloaded it. I have all of his other albums and I listen to them quite a bit. Right now my favorite is "Belladonna". I have it on my iPod stereo at work. Because it's 100% instrumental I can enjoy it without being too distracted by words. It creates a great space. It reminds me of the live show I saw in Philadelphia in 2005 (I think).

Anyway, probably the single reason that has delayed my purchase/download of the new album is the fact that they gave me a choice between MP3 or WAV. Too bad. They shouldn't give me a choice. I don't know the difference and I don't know if I'll be able to convert to the correct format so I can actually burn it onto CD, put on iTunes, etc. I'll try to figure it out this weekend. If I have to buy two downloads of the album it will be worth it.

I post about Daniel Lanois here every once in a while. I am always stunned at the lack of interest people seem to show in his efforts. The guy is a fantastic musician, and a great artist. Without him, I don't think we would have the kind of U2 we've known over the years.

I downloaded the wav. files... they are much, much higher quality than mp3s, though because they are larger in size, the download will take longer. I used itunes to burn the files to cd.
no conversion necessary, just burn as you would normally

I am so looking forward to hearing the new album ... if it is anything like 'Shine' then I'm sure I'm gonna love it

I really hope this means that Daniel will be touring again ... especially to Australia! I saw him and his band perform (almost 2 years ago now) in Melbourne and it was just a-MAAA-zing. Probably one of the best concerts I've ever been to.

Favorite album? It's gotta be Apollo, right...if you allow it to be a Lanois album, as well as an Eno album?
