The pressing is super quiet and has great dynamics. It was mastered very well.

I absolutely adore summer of love, gives me goosebumps every time I listen to it at the minute . But it's December now and it's been 2 degree all day, freezing cold. Just don't think a song called summer of love should be released just yet. Maybe release it as the last single at the start of next summer. Might be to late by then though and there all singled out

Not even in the news today
So many drowned in the sea last night
But one word that the sea can't say
Is No

Outrageous. How is this not as poignant and as enraged as Sunday Bloody Sunday?

Sounds like another new song. Leftover? SOA will be the quick follow up?

It’s in the Showman.

All through the video they isolate instruments from songs as background - just strings or synths.

Great question! With Best Thing still rising on the Hot AC chart in America where it’s been in the top 20 for weeks now, that has seemed to delay the announcement of the “official” 2nd single. All signs still seem to point towards Get Out, which we know they’ve filmed a video for and have played in various appearances.

But, Red Flag Day and Love is Bigger would make great choices for future singles as well.

The album kind of finishes where it started – in the dark and alone. There’s a point about 1.50 around the bit where he sings ‘and all you’ve got is grieving’ and then wanders off ‘la da da da’ with the gentle piano that I found heart aching. It’s got flashes of that Irish/Scottish lament about it – deep melancholy, lonely and spiritual at the same time. This might just be the album’s crowning moment for me. I really think this is the best Bono has sounded in voice and lyrics in a long long time.
I absolutely think 13 is the best song on the album. And their best song in quite some time. It's a complete heartwrench. Wanting to hear a song and yet not somehow feel up to it is the best compliment an artist can be paid.

Red Flag Day brought me to tears first, then the album version of Little Things... Landlady,13, Lights of Home, Book of your heart... even Love is Bigger is special in a way. Showman is a very unusual U2 song, but I like it... because it is performed in this laid back way

The Showman is really growing on me. Fun, a little silly, catchy chorus, and the loosest they've sounded on record since... I really don't know. Lacks that little element of calculation you can hear in Vertigo and Elevation.

I completely agree - this is the direction I hope U2 takes on their next album (assuming this is not their "good-bye" album).

SOE is an album by parents for parents. And I like it.

Flame away.

Yup, strip away the generic typical 2000s U2 songs like "You're the Best Thing...," "Get Out of..." and "Love is Bigger" and you're left iwth some really good nuggets. Red Flag Day and The Showman, Summer of Love and American Soul... those don't feel extraordinarily unique or anything. But they feel like a good direction for U2.
