Can someone enlighten me on what the Melbourne outtakes are?

From comments made by Bono, the sound is going to have a harder edge than ATYCLB.

The original article comes from the www.u2star.com site, reading the news they say pictures coming soon! I can't wait to see them!
No idea of how these songs could be!
I want to go to Dublin!

I wonder what that is too, hopefully somebody can shed some light. Still wonder if that snippet from the 60 minutes Bono's car is going to be on the new record!

the melbourne out takes stem from a recording fans made on the popmart tour of new material being played during a soundcheck in, you guessed it , melbourne.

the only version i have ever heard is of very poor quality. you can however hear bono singing, something, and some other music but to my ears it is really nondescript. perhaps there is a better or cleaned up version which does better justice to the band but i've never been overly impressed with it.

I really like the Melbourne soundchecks so this is wicked news. Obviously they aren't finished songs, but what there is of them there is really cool.

Edit: Then again, achtung baby was going to be a dance album and Pop was going to return to their rock roots, so we can't take these things to head too readily.

Maybe they just heard them reworking an old Achtung Baby outtake or b-side ala Sweetest Thing...

god, only fans could compare new material to the Melbourne Soundchecks

I guess they would have said the same if they had heard U2 play early versions of Beautiful Day and Stuck in a Moment

What a wonderful world we live in with this thing called the internet...some lucky Italian fans living in Dublin hear the band rehearsing a few new songs at the Quay, and as soon as they can break away, and email a U2 site that will believe them, we are all hearing about what the new album might sound like.

In the old days, I'm sure stuff like that happened all the time with fans hearing new stuff coming from Windmill Lanes, but by the time we finally got the news, the new U2 album was already released.
