If U2 wanted to record in isolation, they could have found a way.

The iTunes thing is still a thing.

Dionne Warwick’s social media is better managed than U2’s.

Just noticed that Brian Eno was on 'Close To The Edge' a couple of weeks ago.

One can only wish they rekindle their musical collaboration again...

Get Eno working the loops, and keep the outside collaborators. Except this time, it's Robert Fripp and a deck of cards.

"Prog Rock from Venus!"

"The Edge is on Frippertronics!"

On second thought...

Remember this advert from five years ago? What was that song at the end?



Sounds very much like early U2. Whatever it was, much better than the limp saccharine shite Ryan Tedder gave to the band*.

I actually think about this quite a lot. Sounds like a modernized Boy or October sound. Really like it.

One of the riffs was very fly like

The one with Bono or whomever was backing vocals reminded me of Blow Your House Down

Absolutely! I know they have modernized this sound to an extent recently (Volcano, Invisible, Reach Me Now, Red Flag Day, even Ordinary Love somewhat), but I would still like to see them explore this sound more.

The recent songs inspired by that era are some of the best ones and I don't think that's an accident. For all the changes in their sound over the years, to me, the early sound and especially, energy, never quite went away. We can find signs of it on every album and tour. It seems to be not only their original DNA, but the strongest part of it.

There are so many examples, but a few stand out. For all the bells and whistles of Zoo TV and Popmart, there's lots of times watching the performances that you can easily see the same urgency and earnest energy present in the early years. On JT, especially on leg 1 in smaller arenas, Streets was introduced as the story of U2 forming, taking a leap of faith and trying to make it in the world together. In both theme and sound, the early U2 elements of the song were emphasized. In the 2000s, Beautiful Day and City of Blinding Lights, in live performances, have similarly had way more of an early U2 sound and energy than portrayed on the record.

Point is, they seem to be never far from this part of their career, so I don't think they've yet modernized the sound to its full potential. It's just such an exciting, urgent sound.

Also, this was 7 years ago tonight!

Unbelievable on so many levels. I remember all of us here being so optimistic about this being the start to the 2014 campaign. Everything suggested it would be full speed ahead from here. This era, with a little bit of time, still stands out to me. Makes the Apple incident and bike accident seem all the more unfortunate. They really seemed to know what they were going for, they believed in it, and presented themselves well. Performances such as this and Ordinary Love on the couch were fantastic, same for later European promo performances. Hell, even after the bike accident and backlash from the Apple saga, they still came roaring back, seemingly unbothered by the entire setback, and embarked on one of the best tours of their career.

There was an authenticity and comfort to the Innocence era that didn't lend itself to any cringeworthy moments like Boots at the Grammy's or Get Out on the barge. There was also an appetite for new U2 music, as it had been 5 years since NLOTH and a solid 3 since the end of 360. If just a couple things didn't go wrong, I think we're looking at a very relevant and memorable era. As it was, the whole era did give me an Elevation 2.0 vibe. What could have been.......

However, watching this video hits me on a whole new level tonight. The whole world was in such a different and comparatively innocent place. COVID wasn't even thought of, and there was everyone, in the epicenter of the US outbreak, all together enjoying U2 on top of a skyscraper. Personally, I was in a good place in life at that time. I also had an amazing experience 5 years later in Manhattan in September 2019. That trip included my first NYC rooftop experience, and since, the overwhelming majesty and sense of awe you get looking at that skyline has fascinated me.

I'm hoping someday soon, we're back to seeing U2 in settings like this.

the past 7 years have really been rough (perhaps even TUF) on Bono. poor guy.

invisible is an awesome song, filled with adrenaline and longing, and i'm sorry it didn't go how they wanted.

It was one of those nights that just looked cold! As good as everyone performed, you can see they're struggling with it, too.

Of course!

Invisible, more than any other U2 song I can think of now, is the one I always forget how good it is until something reminds me to revisit it.

Amazing song. I'll never forget waking up from a nap and playing it for the first time during the Super Bowl that year.

Ordinary Love is pretty great, too.

I get similar feelings when I revisit it.

I wanna say the temperature was in the upper 20s on the ground, which is cold. Except it was also 900 feet in the air, which is colder. At night. Think they filmed it just after sundown. Played the song twice and called it a day.
