Where are you guys getting the idea that Solar has been delayed?

Chris Evans sent back his pizza. Hence, the album delay.

Solar was delayed because of the solar eclipse! Bono felt he needed to rewrite some of the songs given the recent solar eclipse events! They better get it it out before the next American eclipse in 2024 or else the band members will be dead by the time they release solar! And they are having trouble on the song called "sky of blinding lights" they don't want to offend those who watched the eclipse without the eclipse glasses.

Parts of the blackout remind me of abc - the look of love

5 million views up - good effort all things considered.

Especially given the sound quality. Loving the song, but the cheers are preventing the appreciation from going to another level

They really aren't that distracting.

I dont know what I am listening to then. I mean you can get a fair idea of the song... but its bot clean or crisp. And I dont mean the production. Just the live recording is terribly muffled at some points. Not saying that it will be a completely different listening experience without those elements, but it will be much improved.

You are all welcome to send me what you think is the best, cleanest version. I would be okay with that.

I really don't think that the issue is with the crowd noise; it's probably just the distortion that happens via the shitty Facebook Live video compression.

Still the same really. Really enjoy it instrumentally. I doubt I'm ever going to rate present-day Bono that highly for either performance or lyrics but this is fine. I've listened to it about 5-6 times, not feeling the need to either rush into another listen or to avoid it. I do wish it was on Spotify so that I didn't have to make the effort to go to Facebook.

I've only listened on Facebook. You can hear every instrument easily, and with the exception of a few short parts, the crowd noise is not at the front of the mix. Some posters here seem way too distracted by a bit of clapping.

That could well be the case. Its just not good quality. Like I said, a non U2 friend of mine just didnt even want to listen after hearing the first verse, saying that the quality sucks.

So what do we think?

1. The Blackout
2. You're The Best Thing About Me
...
11/12. The Little Things That Give You Away

Could be wrong of course but seems possible.
