C'mon now people, read between the lines and you'll see that they had every intention to release this thing in the fall. Everything pointed to it. Here's a fact...the majority of U2's ablums have been released in the second half of the year.

So were we that off-base for reading between the lines and making the very valid hypothesis that the album was going to be released before the end of 2008?
If you choose to "read between the lines" as you put it and they do something that isn't what you expected I don't see why you (this is not directed at you personally by the way ) feel the need to get angry. You chose to believe these intentions that as far as I am concerned where more a leap of faith on your part than any kind of substantial information based on fact.

Not true.

If I were angry I'd write something unintelligible like this:


fewhf49tn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Actually, I feel just fine. How are you?

Speaking for myself, I'm not angry or upset about the change in plans, it's just that I don't "get it."

Seriously, how long can it take?

Maybe this is the U2 analogy for Chinese Democracy.

I'd love to see the reaction in this forum when U2 says they're going to bring in Timbaland and kick out Enois.

Well, Ok, they didn't say that, but most of us believed the release date was going to be November 2008, everything we were getting pointed to the album being done and now we discover it wasn't, or may be the band are not all confident in it and want to rework for a time.
What's the drama about? for us it's only an album, for them it's about their work and reputation, let them do it their way.
"Bono exagerates, we can't rely on him when talking about new work", oh, com'on, give him a break, he's the one who has to speak at difficult moments like this, I wouldn't do it better, would you?

thats my exact thought.

I'm just perplexed by the decision.

Yes. He could actually state what's going on instead of raving on about an album so good it needs more work.

Double album ? Need more songs to choose ? Division in the band ? Temporary insanity ?

Yeah, I'm not particularly annoyed. It is what it is. I just want some sort of explanation beyond "we want to keep working; we'll get back to you in 4 months".

I just spoke about this in my previous post.
What's been on their website pointing at a 2008 release?

Pink Floyd took 7 years between 1987's Momentary Lapse and 1994's Division Bell. Will U2 beat that record? Stay tuned to find out!

Honestly, I don't understand how some bands are able to kick out albums every 2 years or even every year and some take so long!

Yeah, Pink Floyd shouldn't be looked at as a role model for anything.

lol they don't owe us anything though! They can do whatever the hell they bloody well want. They can wait 8 years if they wanted. You're still sounding like they're answerable to the fans.

It would be nice to know exactly why we have to wait beyond 4 years, with all the hype and "it's done" talk.
