Continue as you were.

Last thread we learned..... nothing? Maybe this one will be different.

To start, we've got Adam and Guggi bein' silly. Surely, a good sign

This has got to be the thread surely that we hear some concrete news about SOE. The wait is just too much 😄

I want something new, another departure. Even if i think SOI is a very good improvement over No Line i wish they find a different concept from SOI. Something more ethereal, less direct but with passion. Maybe more like old U2 lol. I know there are now reverse gear on U2 and i admire them for it, but U2 is about big songs, is about layers. SOI is great, but its not that kind of record.

But title has nothing to do with anything you are talking about. In fact experience is a departure from innocence by definition, so it would fit well into the theme. Why one would think they HAVE to sound similar in order to fit the theme is quite odd.

Isn't it precisely the opposite of SOI? You couldn't get further from it...

I just looked through the other Valencia pictures. Bono really does look in good shape. He easily lost 5kg. Maybe that's why he's finally wearing something other than black

All these people getting their photos taken with band members the last few days, I wonder if anyone actually asked about SOE or the tour as we have heard squat.

I would guess that August is the month were the shooting for the video ,of the lead single, will take place.

That should be the first sign that something is imminent

I hope so, but i almost sure that won't be the case. I don't mean they will make a carbon copy of SOI, but since ATYCLB they follow the same pattern in sound, as much different all the albums sound since then.
Since 2000 U2 want to sound like modern pop rock. In your face vocals, crisp instruments, very conventional songs structures. They left behind that ethereal, almost celtic flair they had even in Pop. To me, a song like Exit is much more unique like a wannabe experimental rock like Last Night on Earth. Discotheque was maybe the last example of that U2 unique sound.
Maybe In a Little While is in that category too.
Now Stuck in Moment, Vertigo, Moment of Surrender, and Cedarwood Road, all great songs, all different but at the same time all the same.
You have to have a chorus as strong as Pride or ISHFWLF when you intend to stick with that conventional song structure formula in every single song.
When the album is out you will know what i mean.
