what if u2's next album is a pop one.

i have read alot of reviews on the net and u2's next album will be out in 03 next year and will have pop tunes damit ill post the review.

Workaholics to a man and clearly unable to grasp the concept of time off, U2 already have much of their next album (due out in '03) in the bag - and apparently it's poppier and "more immediate" than All That You Can't Leave Behind


Adam Clayton has revealed that U2 already have a sizable chunk of their next album in the can and awaiting 2003 release.

dam you what the fuck is going on .

A: I'll buy it. I'll wish it were something else, and I'll hate it at first. But I'll buy it and then I'll eventually end up loving it.

Now here's my question: How the in the blue fuck can an album be any poppier than ATYCLB?!!

Let's keep in mind that when ATYCLB came out people said it was more hard-rocking and had more of "an edge" to it. (No pun intended.) And even if the pun were intended, it didn't have much of him in it either. Hmph!

here is the rest of the review.

Everything we had left over (from All That You Can't Leave Behind) was finished, which was unusual for us," he tells Rolling Stone magazine. "There are maybe another ten pieces that are more immediate, slightly poppier tunes that I know will turn up because they're good."

As for current work practices: "Nowadays, Edge tends to do his homework and discipline some chord sequences. Then, as a group, we find an interpretation, a unique way they fit together. Or a sound will get thrown out from a jam, and we figure out a melody to go with it."

lets just hope that adam is just fucking with the media.
oh i will buy the album even if its in spanish but i dont want to do the same thing ive been doing for 5 years that is going bach to Achtung baby oh ya.

fuck, I keep hearing all kinds of shit, Adam says it's "poppier," Edge says not a fucking thing, Bono says it will be "rock hard," which maybe good for the girls in PLEBA but what about The Gangs of New York Soundtrack and these extra tracks for The Best Of... ?

I think radiohead's next album will be out before U2's, and they haven't even begun writing it yet

Um, excuse me, but where exactly does it say "the next album will be a pop album" in any of these interviews? Don't get so worked up over a casual word or two thrown into a conversation. Just because Adam says the tunes are poppier doesn't mean it's going to be a flat out pop album, and it certainly doesn't mean you now have the grounds to bitch left and right about what a shame that is. The - album - is - not - finished - yet.

Quote:

Give me a "fricking" break. Give U2 a fricking break. I think they know what they're doing a helluva lot better than you do. As far as acting like a rock band - I'd say this past tour showed everyone what a rock band should be like. Now you're going to let a few rumors of poppier material (oh the horror!) scare you into this knee-jerk reaction?

And I'll remind you again. The album isn't out yet. No one on the outside knows what any of these finished songs sound like. Don't condemn the album before it's even an album.

This kind of reminds me of how the media took hold of the rumor that Pop was going to be a dance record and proceeded to blast U2 for it just on the basis of the soundclip of Discotheque. At least they heard a soundclip. Fact is, you haven't heard one tiny little snippet and you're already whining.

I'll reserve my judgement until I hear the damn thing, thank you very much.

If it's U2 I'll ike it. I have no issues with the term pop. Pop and U2 in the same sentence usually means damned good music. Yeah, I mean that.

did anyone else find this rather funny?

Shaun...
Dude...
Chill...

Or maybe you're right. I think Bono better look out cause I'm writing songs as I type with my feet and my aunt maisie is coming over tomorrow arvo round tea time so we can work on some guitar licks for the next album which is gonna show U2 how bad they really are.

Just you watch your back Bono Vox, Im comin at ya with a big fat pound of U2chomping flesh on a stick.

Diemen said pretty much what I was thinking.

I'm ready, I'm ready for the laughing gas, I'm ready, ready for what's next...and ready for the never-ending "new album" rumours and paranoid speculation that will be swirling about this place for the next year or two.

‘Pop’, as in Pop Music is an abbreviation of ‘Popular’.

This can be read in 2 ways.
that the next album will be popier than ATYCLB in the pop music sense, wich is not posible.
or that is more Pop in the sense of the Pop album, which I will love.
Once Bono said....Pop is the first album where U2 sounds like MEN, and I agree.
