So Zoofred and friend were teasing us with the longer clip? That's like dangling drugs in front of a junkie.

that sounded great (aside from the quality), i think these songs do show alot of promise though

This September single is seeming more likely now

This exciting for me seeing as i missed out on the last beach clips

Not sure yet. At this stage, I'm 50/50 on going to Sydney. If a third show is announced, I will definitely be there for that.

I'll be staying with a friend of mine - we'll either stay at the house of someone he knows in Sydney, or get a hotel. I'm leaving those plans up to him.

My problem is that this is during the exam period and I don't want to postpone exams unless it's absolutely necessary (I believe I can do it if I must). So I don't want to make a final decision until it's confirmed/denied that there will be a third show. I don't want to be away from Brisbane for too long.

Probably just recorded by the band and engineers.
When they hire a producer, they'll let it be known, at least sometime thereafter, then you can start to smell an album.

Based on these demos, not the quality of the music, but the perception I have about how unfinished they all are, I'd say they are still in the earliest phases, but it's just beach clips, they could be a lot further along than how it seems.

The good thing is generally, without a ridiculous fiasco happening, there is no reason at all why U2 can't finish an album in a year. So if that's the case, fall 2007 is looking pretty good, IMO.

Please, U2, please don't ruin this song. The promise here is great.
This made me laugh because it reminded me of something Brian Eno said in U2 at the end of the World:

"I like it, "but I'm afraid it will be a big hit. We must tamper with it somehow to prevent that."


now back to getting all

The first song is definitely the best, sounds a bit different from what they've been doing, I can definitely see promise in it, and it's more guitar-driven.


The other songs, I'm not too sure of at the minute.

<--- Tears of joy.


Oh my, it all sounds so good. I know this is not much to base a new album off of, but what I hear I really really like.

That third song especially is amazing! Gibby, you totally called it on that solo. Amazing amazing work from Edge. Never heard anything like it before, but definitely needs to be longer. Can't wait. And that chorus is huge, breathtaking. And Bono brought back the "Ohhh ohhh ohh ohhhh"s for that song! Gotta love it!

That's all I can say for now, before I explode. This is already better than all the Htdaab beach clips! Now all we need is that 18-minute cut of this recording! Muhahaha . I want to hear more of the first beach-clip song too! ..And out of my head, yeah oh yeah! Rock on!

There could be a chance we here a few of these songs, completed, rather soon and have to wait a few years for the rest.

All Because of You and Electrical Storm came from the same session, two years apart on the releases though.

With the digital age and the succes of Itunes, and with U2's relationship with Apple, it could merely be one song, one digital download, one video, just enough to make the last several shows more interesting. Electrical Storm had a 'vehicle' to be delivered on, these days, you don't really need anything other than a digital recording.

I like what I'm hearing! I like the first song alot, and the second one sounds pretty good too (almost jazzy IMO).

I love the third song from what I hear, especially the guitar solo, and the chorus!!!

The ideas for these songs sound near finished to me. The structure and lyrics seem to be down pat, as does the instrumentation. They're also playing multiple songs in a row with no pause. Good signs. I'm hoping for a single before the tour continues (won't hold my breath though).

I'm hesitant to get too excited. When I heard the snippets of LAPOE and Miracle Drug I nearly shat my pants, but in the end was rather disappointed. I also didn't like COBL as much when I heard it on the album (although it's still very good).

Just wanted to post again saying how awesome the first song is after a repeat listen. By far the best of the lot! That guitar riff is unreal. Almost sounds like something from Sonic the Hedgehog. Yeah, I know that's weird, but that's what it reminded my off. Oh well, it's still killer!

I tend to think that we'll probably see one maybe two songs released soon just in time for the remaining Vertigo Tour dates.

That could get them some air play on radio stations heading in the the rescheduled dates.

Great songs, perhaps not in the musical direction i was hoping for (although the first song is great). Where's the 18:30 recording already? Is there a revamped Mercy!?

Thanks for this, recorder on the beach.

I've been hyping myself for another lite U2 album ever since I accepted that's where they are as a band. You can't expect them to go backwards in time. They've found their niche as 40 year old men and they are playing music as 40 year old men. You can't ask them for any more than that, really.
So I'll keep the 80's U2, definitely the 90's U2 and accept U2 now for what it's becoming, soft rock.
And honestly? I have no problem. There are plenty of bands to fill that "old U2 void" right now.

Sounds great, especially that solo.
Not too hot on Clocks pt. 2. I think it's been done by Coldplay twice and they don't need the comparisons.

And omggggggggggg, the chord changes in song one are awesome. I'm in love.

WHO'S EXCITED FOR THIS ALBUM?!

EDIT

Did anyone else notice the similarity between song one and HMTMKMKM in the guitar solo?

I'm trying my VERY HARDEST to look past ALL of the hype I have for new U2 stuff and I'm rather disappointed.

Essentially this is the same direction U2 has been going for the last 6 years. Nothing that sounds too experimental except maybe the inclusion of piano. It still sounds at least the quality of the last two albums, but it's not blowing my mind.
