Songs of Innocence - Album Discussion

I thought we needed a thread to discuss the album as a whole...

So U2 just surpassed Taylor Swifts album on iTunes in the U.S. - Joshua Tree is at number 19 and she is at 20. This puts 8 albums of theirs in the top 50 now. And rising.

It looks like Apple got the message about people are having a hard time actually getting the album, and why.
I just received an email this morning explaining that they had given me the new U2 album. LOL

Will be listening to it for the 6th time later today. My song rankings have been mostly unchanged - what a fantastic album.

BUT ONLY 200,000 PPL DOWNLOADED THE ALBUM THAT WAS FORCED UPON THEM U2 SUX AND R SO NOT REVELNT ALOS I HAIT B0NO

I'm waiting to see the articles that mention the fact that an album from 1987 is in the top 20. U2 achieved exactly what they were hoping for by releasing it the way they did.

and on the original thread topic - yes. Song of Innocence. I'm a fan. Wayyy too early for me to try and rank it among other U2 albums, but I'm quite impressed with this one. It manages to channel every decade from the 60s through to today and yet sound more modern than anything they released in the 00s.

It's early days, but I'm getting a stronger sense from this one than I ever did from No Line.

Immediately, I loved Moment of Surrender; strongly liked No Line on the Horizon and White as Snow, but that's about it. The rest ranged from okay, but nothing earth-shattering to stuff I don't feel like listening to.

This one intrigues me more with every listen. There is some fantastic material. As always, a couple will probably get skipped down the road as I listen, but it seems much stronger to me.

Part of it is the musical biography of the teen years nature of this album. To me that's a more compelling theme than bland, cliched statements about love and community.
