It is too damn loud though. This is a fact.
I wouldn't say the instruments are mixed properly in songs like COBL - the intro sounds like it's being suffocated.

My only beef with studio COBL - lack of Larry's snare drum beat that he plays live.

I just think. I know its in my case. i've gone out and discovered a lot of new/different music. And I've gone from being basically "centered around U2 for 4 years", to opening my eyes to a whole new world!

The new album might have the same reaction when it leaks, it might not. I know i'll be jumping out of my skin again when track 2 is leaked (well we'll already have track 1, the lead single weeks in advance )
Yeah, and it was my first album as a dedicated fan, so that really ramped up my excitement a few notches too many.

This time around, I'll probably just ignore WTAHNN. Go there for links when you lot say they've leaked and avoid the discussion like the plague.

Yeah, you can hear popping during the intro. It's clipping.

Fantastic song though. The lyrics are iffy, but it's a great tune. Better than most anything off of ATYCLB.

The only bum lyric is the shit about the mouth full of teeth. The rest is fine, especially by Bono standards.

Signing off in agreement on Crumbs.

Until we meet again, NSW.

Yeah, I don't get why this forum slags it off so much. I rank it as one of HTDAAB's top three songs, with COBL and OSC. Wish it had been done live more.
