also, someone over at atu2 says Dallas was asked about whether SOE would sound like the raw rocking sound we hear in the fender clip, and he says there are a couple songs like that but that there are many "heartfelt songs"

Well the world is ours
And every door smells of fresh paint
When the ?
Says it’s friction that makes you a saint

When we've seen enough (?)
To know it’s children that can teach
When you’re free enough
To wake up on a bed of beach

You’re the best thing about me
The best thing that ever happened to a boy
You’re the best thing about me
I’m the kind of trouble that you enjoy

You’re the best thing about me
The best things are easy to destroy
You’re the best thing about me
Why am I walking away
Why am I walking away

I’ll be crying out
How bad can a good boy be
Shooting off my mouth
That’s another great thing about me

I got everything
But I feel like nothing at all
There’s no risky thing
For a man who’s determined to fall

You’re the best thing about me
The best thing that ever happened to a boy
You’re the best thing about me
I’m the kind of trouble that you enjoy

You’re the best thing about me
The best things are easy to destroy
You’re the best thing about me
Saved me from myself

I’m honestly in love with the way you dance
I’m honestly in love with you

The best thing
The best thing
I kind of thought I heard "when the golden book says it's scripture that makes you a saint". Not long till we find out!

When the girl involved says it's friction that makes you a saint ...

When you're free enough to wake up on a bed or a beach ...

I've been finding out (or maybe: trying out?) how bad can a good boy be ...

Against the Extra Long Pop Album | Pitchfork


I was always wondering why mainstream artists seem to release gigantic albums left and right; i didnt see the benefit because most of those sounded like mixtape but without coherence/consistency in quality. now i get that, because more songs/singles = more revenue!

Well lets celebrate then because U2 manage to achieve this with their regular length albums.

I've had a listen recently as well. The album is boring and just leaves me disinterested. I'm hoping SOE is a little more experimental.

It is definitely amongst their blandest work for me. It feels very lifeless, despite the personal lyrics which I do actually like . Musically its just so sterile and not U2 at all for me. I didn't mind RBW CWR and Iris live. And I liked the TCB on record, fell a bit flat live.

That'll happen when you play it twice and then give up...

Songs of Innocence to me is the second straight album where they set off with a particular vibe in mind, got scared at the last second, and tried to reel it back in.

I think the fear wasn't over the album, though... I think the fear came when they tried to play Danger Mouse's production live.

Probably why they wanted to go back and rerecord this album after playing back the arrangements live.

I like SOI, but I just wish we could have heard the full on DM product.

I actually liked SOI a lot when it came out; considering there were all kinds of weird rumors about dance albums and changing producers made me think that new album would've been a directionless mess. but instead, it had consistent atmosphere

Yep - really hoping for something cohesive

Mind you, HTDAAB is pretty cohesive sonically, save for the jarring Vertigo > Miracle Drug transition. Otherwise just a little uneven

So, fingers crossed for a cohesive and consistent SOE

Well, I have just been listening to the new Imagine Dragons album Evolve. Very refreshing and uses synths and keyboard on many songs on the album. I am a sucker for synths and keyboard so am hoping SOE will have them on it.

Dance album? I don't remember that one, but it seems like every album since post RH someone somewhere has this ridiculous fear.

i probably meant the rumor that said that U2 was working with pop producers like RedOne.
