thanks for the typing philod, that is very appreciated!

And what an awesome article, really giving us a glimpse of life inside U2. I wouldn't be concerned with the writer not stating his own opinion of the album, I'm sure the magazine has a more music oriented review coming up, remember they exist to sell magazines!!

All the signs point to this album being something much more than a pop/rock record (Vertigo, while great, gives that impression). It seems it may well be the third in the great U2 trilogy - Joshua Tree; Achtung Baby; HTDAAB ...

Thanks Philod, you rock!

I see HTDAAB as an exploration of where AB left off...

Just want to say that I will post scans of the article in the morning or about 8 hours from now, with any luck

Not that I want to steal Philod's thunder, but I should be able to squeeze a high res scan of each page onto my webspace alongside Bono's speech

Nighty night

ps. Guess who's been lynched by the beer monkey?!!

This is a no-brainer purchase for me. U2 cover, U2 tracks described, U2 comedy, U2 politics, U2 religion and some great F'n U2 pictures too!!!

This will be fun ready over again in a few years. Right now I am re-reading articles centered on the release of All That... . Exciting times!!!

I love this part - it's funny, sad and unbelieveably touching.

I haven't heard any of the new album yet, but after reading this article, I'm looking forward to it more than I ever have. Thanks, philod!

It seems as though Bono was very open about things he usually holds back on....very touching interview...

What great sample lyrics there. He Shakes when he sings it? This is the one song title I didnt like, But now with this and knowing its a rocker, cant wait.

It sounds like The Fly has met his match/ equal in 'A Man and A Woman'. Just the words "a man" in the title remind me of "Lemon", in particular these lyrics

"A man builds a city, with banks and cathedrals.
A man melts the sand so he can see the world outside.
You're gonna meet her there
A man makes a car,
she's your destination
and builds a road to run them on.
You gotta get to her
She's imagination
A man dreams of leaving but always stays behind"

Thanks philod!

Great interview, it seems like it will be a very personal album (at least for Bono), with the AIDS and Bono's father being topics on some songs. I have a feeling it will be a dark album too, because of that and 9/11 influence surely coming in too.

I'm interested in hearing the album even more now. Great quotes from the band, especiall girls DJs and Edge mention from Bono I also think Larry was just being himself and not really angry at Bono.

What I'm dying to find out is whether Edge's or Bono's tracklist is the final one, or if its a mix between the two.

I'm just guessing by the song descriptions that it's Edge's.
