They're the only guests, so they're gonna have to talk about SOMETHING. My guess is they hem-haw around it, make a few jokes about how it'd be out by now if it weren't for Edge, maybe play Little Things, and leave it at that.

Once they announce this South American leg, and we know for sure if it's JT or IE, that will pretty much seal the deal for a 2017 release or not. We should know soon.

May be, The Little Things is cut out from the album at the last minute just like NORTH STAR was left out of SOI. It will be played live for a while but will never be heard as an album version.

When will u2 realise that their joyful songs suck? Their best albums like AB, JT, Zoorpoa and TUF have all had a dark edge to them.

I fear that this is going to be another disappointing ATYCLB type album.

Have to admit, I totally agree. I could give a shit about another Walk On, or Yahweh, or even BD. Upbeat is ok, if it's in the vein of Crystal Ballroom, or Mysterious Ways, but I would much rather have darker, moodier U2.

I have to admit that the song from the end of the Fender video sounded a bit "joyous" but still sounded great, so hopefully that's more what we get.

But probably the most fire was on God Part II. I just need me some tough Edge back again. Enough of the echoey background strumming. Come to the forefront!

Even in the darker songs, Edge still would play like Edge. He would mask the delay and other Edgey sounds with pedal/effects that it sounded out of this world.

Every since Vertigo, he seems to be on this 60s/70s riff style, almost trying to be Jimmy Page, and he'll never come close. I don't mind the delay, the classic ringing tones (OOTS is lovely and could listen to the chorus guitar for days) but he has had far too few moments of WOW.

Aside from Bono throwing in as many syllables as he can into a lyric, I feel Edge has really been a let down over the past decade and a half.

Hopefully no more of these styles that we've seen too often

Walk On Riff
COBL Riff
GOYB Riff
SFS Riff
