Because I want it to be special. And if I listen to it today, the new album will arrive with less excitement than it should. It will be New album. Kind of like Vertigo. The new single is out today, but I've had it for weeks When it arrives, it arrives.

It would be like opening your presents on December 11th. When Christmas does come and the world is alive because they finally got their presents, you will be left out. There is nothing left to unwrap, no more mystery.

Don't answer this, but have you ever had sex with someone too soon? Did you feel like you maybe got shortchanged because it was more animal than spiritual? Did you kind of regret it? I don't know if this will at all approximate that, but I will say that I won't have any regrets if two weeks of my life were spent without HTDAAB. I wish that I could hear Achtung Baby again with new ears. I remember literally bouncing on my Water Bed as I absorbed the new album. You only get once chance at hearing it for the first time, and I'm aiming to make it as special as I can muster.

There are also principles involved, ie, the band hasn't authorized this but I can't muster much passion for that argument.

But Stars...it was special... I downloaded the whole thing and dimmed the lights in the room, light a Midsummer's Night candle and had some wine. It was beautiful.

Besides, I won't be going on the 23rd because I will have a DVD to watch, a book to read, and 4 acoustic songs to hear. I'm more excited now because I have those to look forward to 'enriching' the experience. You really are doing yourself and Bruce Dickenson a disservice by not playing the hell out of your speakers right now.

I can't believe that 4 people who I have never met can turn me inside out over and over again. So far not one bad song. I won't say too much more because I don't want to wreck it for the others, plus I just can't articulate how I am feeling right now, except to say I could easily throw my arms around the world...

Tim - See your point, and I can tell you it will be. I was a bit worried with the what if I don't like it angle (bad u2 fan I know). For me I need a lot of time with a new u2 album - (I'm still playing Miracle Drug on heavy rotation but I starting to edge into SYCMIOYO). The songs - while I found them beautiful from the start - are growing on me even more.

and stars a man and a woman is v.v.v.v. good - adam is amazing in that song

you really want to start this again
speaking of more cowbell - I saw Blue Oyster Club last week - actually quite fun (and half of the people there were wearing "More Cowbell" shirts)

edited to say - it is u2's most slow dance-able song

But, Ive found some other bits and pieces, so I'm working on it...

Back soon....
Sorry guys (and gals!).....I took the files down and put my video clips back up (and the original links to these will still work)...partly out of guilt and also because my name is on the page in bold letters!!

I didn't want to get any emails from my ISP and the album is frankly everywhere now and my copy was only 128kbps.

I have something to scan and post in a little while when I've unpacked my shopping. Probably in EYKIW.

**Slams the doors open - almost breaking the glass in the door**



**Goes up to the DJ and rips off whatever CD is playing and puts on "A Night At The Opera" and plays 'Death On Two Legs'**



I'd like to dedicate this to some in Germany - take it away Freddie!



"...But now you can kiss my ass goodbye
Feel good are you satisfied?
Do you feel like suicide?
(I think you should)
Is your conscience all right?
Does it plague you at night?
Do you feel good feel good?

...

Insane you should be put inside
You're a sewer rat decaying in a cesspool of pride
Should be made unemployed
Then make yourself null and void..."


**Goes up behind the bar and graps the nearest bottle and takes a big drink**
