Because their current nature is bad. Not to say Radiohead's way is the only way, rather that U2 is the type of band that SAYS they want the songs to do the talking without actually ever meaning it.

Which was the bane of my existence around the release date of SOI, especially given that I quite like the other three albums from this century. I thought it was a lame album then and my opinion really hasn't changed even if a few tracks had their reputation improved live ("Iris" and a stripped down "EBW").

But it's just been an Interference tradition for the new record to be released and practically every poster goes insane because OMG NEW U2 and because they listen to about three new albums a year. Everybody else comes into it with tempered expectations, but can await a barrage of vitriol aimed at them if they mention not liking the latest release.

Other than ATYLB, SOI is my most listened to U2 release from the past 16 years.

HOOPS STATION

I'm ready
I'm ready for the no-look pass
I'm ready
I'm ready for "Defense!"
I'm ready to Dirk
I'm ready to Clyde
I'm ready to play like Shaq in '95
I'm ready
I'm ready for the swish
Uh huh

In the cool of the lights
I'll be raining threes
I'll be taking my talents
From the Cavs to the Heat

Two shots at the line!
Hoops Station
Got to shoot it on time!
Hoops Station

I'm ready
I'm ready for the pick and pop
I'm ready
To dunk it in your face
I'm ready to hustle
Ready for a steal
Ready for a fast break and a big shoe deal
I'm ready
It's triple double time
Uh huh

Two shots at the line!
Hoops Station
Don't brick 'em this time!
Hoops Station

It's not just a game
Makes the future the past
Leaves you standing in the low post
Your hook shot banks right off the glass

Excited for this one, also their first show in about 9 months. Should be fun to watch, even if they don't play any new songs.

I'm sure the prospect of updating U2Gigs for this has you quaking with anticipation.

I'm usually in bed before 10 because I'm old, but if they're only playing a short set, I'll probably stay up and watch it.

Bono said in an interview with iHeartRadio that the album's coming out next year. At time of posting, they still haven't taken the stage. We shall see what unfolds during their set, but don't expect much.

But Bono lies, so that means it's coming out as soon as they take the stage.
