it's all stuff i've already heard, but good to see that the buzz is starting, and that March 8th won't come again without an album.

Yeah, I saw it too, but Mikal's right we've seen most of this already. I agree that it is a good sign to see the media machine starting to crank out the news on the new album. Things will start to get real exciting in about 4 weeks!!!

Swweeeeeeettttttt!!!!!

Yeah, they just complied information for other places. But it's so cool to see! And congrats to @U2 for being mentioned in the article.

Bill Flanagan thinks this album is the best thing they have ever done! You can't have a more reliable source than Flanagan, author of the "U2 Bible."

They always say that, though.

"This album, I think, is the best we've ever done."

Seeing ...er... HEARING is believing.

Awesome! Nice to hear people (other than us diehard fans) taking notice

There is a U2 competition here in Australia that is flashing across the top of my hotmail - big photo of U2.

Tis quite unexpected to 'see them' in my hotmail account but very welcome they are

It is amazing to read the hatred in the messages posted there at Yahoo, it is sad to see how many people out there who hate U2.

One person took the time to add this,

Asked whether he enjoys groups such as Oasis, U2 and TEXAS, George Harrison snorts, "Rubbish! They aren't very interesting. It's OK if you're 14 years old. I prefer to listen to BOB DYLAN." He adds, "You know what irritates me about modern music, it's all based on ego. Look at a group like U2. BONO and his band are so egocentric... The more you jump around, the bigger your hat is, the more people listen to your music... The only important thing is to sell, and make money. It's nothing to do with talent." The Beatles, he claims "had a value which will last forever." Harrison explains, "Today there are groups who sell a lot of records and then disappear immediately. Will we remember U2 in 30 years? Or the Spice Girls? I doubt it."

George was wrong... 30 years from now, we will all remember the Spice Girls and the joy they brought into every little girl's life. The Beatles will be on the way out b/c hip hop will rule all music....

Did you see the yahoo reply thread?

Looks like the music war Bono talked about in 2000 is still going on. U2 are the last of a dying breed. Good musicians who write their own songs and know how to play.

The day after Harrison said this Bono made his feelings perfectly clear at Leeds Popmart by giving Harrison the middle finger in front of 80,000 cheering fans..

I hate to slight George Harrison, and I'm not going to turn this in a u2 verses the beatles thing, but George Harrison would have been a grocery clerk if not for Paul and John.
sorry but it's true.
p.s. the beatles were great and they will last forever.
