Great album. Much better than I was expecting.

It’s very early days but this could be their best album since Achtung Baby.

But all kidding aside it’s a great album. I can’t put it anywhere yet amongst other u2 albums. It will take a few months atleast until I can rank it.

Got it :-) downloaded the wetransfer app then the winzip app and I can listen to the songs on the winzip app.

Is there any way of getting these winzip files to my iTunes on my iPhone.

This has all been done on my iPhone no computer has been used so it can be done. But can I now move the files it iTunes on my phone?

Yeah, not gonna go down that path yet. But just viewed on its own, if someone gave me this album as a gift and I never heard of the band, I'd say it's a fantastic album

Yep, good album, and it only took three years!

Listening to The Best Thing, it does sound like the mix was finessed slightly. The bit where the volume on Edge's guitar jumps and cuts off abruptly at the end of the first chorus is fixed.

Haven't done enough full listens. The Lights of Home is a pretty good Oasis song.

I am not sure how to do it from your iPhone. If it was from your computer it’s pretty simple, just put the songs on a new playlist plug your phone in and drag the new playlist. It took me two hours to do this until I figured out that the songs were not dragging to my phone cos of the iCloud settings.

My favourite is 'Book of Your Heart'.

This particular track is the best thing they've done since Achtung Baby. It's like Leonard Cohen guest appearing on The Joshua Tree, but then arriving via time machine to Hansa Studios in Berlin in 1991 to record it with Achtung era U2 instead of Joshua Tree era U2. A seminal piece of music that is criminally absent from the regular edition of the album.

As for the rest? Absolutely amazing. I just wish they'd used the strings version of 'Lights of Home' instead.
