it's depressing as fuck that they've been using ATYCLB promo soundbites for half their career

oh boy isn't everyone so excited at this news.
Thanks for the translation

I'm quite surprised they're continuing to work with Ryan Tedder. I figured they'd drop him after neither SoI or SoE produced a 'hit'.

That part about the band aiming to make a less produced album, and that it'll be 'easier' does give me a little optimism. I'd still love to hear some more raw recordings from them, and maybe a more straightforward approach would take less time (though by now I know not expect anything but an ultra-polished album that'll take 5 years).

I’m just glad that they’re making another album. I also liked the last 2.

I didn't dislike the last two albums. And I'm excited for a new album, even in its infancy.

But the following things dishearten me

-Edge saying they need to keep up with where music is going. No. No you don't.

-Four guys in a room. Gzus Christ get a new line.

-Ryan Tedder. Go away.

Bono thinks that the last two albums got great reviews so he probably also thinks they had hits.

they have a very narrow idea of where music is going. to them it means mainstream music that only gets airplay because of payola and seems popular because of inflated stream counts.

the artists they cite who had productive, respected late careers only got the acclaim and success after they stopped trying to keep up with mainstream music. well, aside from Cohen - he never lost the acclaim. But Bowie and Dylan, they regained their mojo when they gave up on the charts and settled into doing their thing. U2 should follow their leads. They won't, though.

And so begging the months/years of speculation/ rumours and endless discussions over every little tidbit of news! I love album release cycles. It will be atleast another 2-3 years before we get this so called very different from last 2 albums album!

I loved the last two albums but I did want them to ditch Ryan Tedder

Saying that when a band gets 40 whatever years it is into their career just be happy their making new music

Ok, I’d like to revise. I like the last 2 albums... but I don’t really care for GOOYOW - American Soul. I used to think nothing could be worse than GOYB or SUC. Now, compared to GOOYOW and AS, I love GOYB and SUC. I don’t know how Bono could lack that much self awareness when he wrote AS. Please, no more of that shit.

I’m usually not too worried about who the producer is, because at the end of the day it’s U2 writing the songs. Brian and Danny helped them make UF, JT, AB and ATYCLB, all of which I consider to be near masterpieces... but they also produced NLOTH, which I consider to be meh.

SOI has an army of producers, but I love it. It connected with me a lot. SOE not so much... I still like most of the songs, but it just missed the mark for me in some ways that SOI did not.

Also, no matter what they say, this next album will sound 90% like all other 00’s U2, with a few new colors sprinkled in.

I'd really like them to get back together w/ Brian Burton. Just hash things out, produce whatever the audio equivalent is of makeup sex, and release that shit w/o hesitation...

plz.

Even if the band wanted to do this, I don't see any chance of Burton wanting to work with them ever again.

I liked the last two albums enough but they're not even cracking the top 50% of my U2 album rankings. I'm disappointed that they are working with Ryan Tedder. I've said in the past I wonder what another collaboration with Eno and Lanois would produce. But in a way I will be pumped for a new release.

Given Bono talking about going away after Berlin/Edge saying 2019 is about regrouping, I am surprised there is studio talk at all. This late in the game, nothing wrong with more output.

Tedder ? I liked last two albums, and "different" sounds good. I hope producer of Book of your heart gets involved.

I know I’ve said this before, but Andy Barlow was the big success in all of the producers they have worked with in the last 10 years. Him and Declan Gaffney.
