more clues that the album is finished from Bono and Sam o Sullivan

U2tour.de, from their friends at U2achtung.com:

Bono has said : "I have just one thing to say: it's a boy AND a girl."

Sam O' Sullivan, one of their technicians, confirmed the album is finished and that the band are in vacation.

I wonder what that means...a boy and a girl...oh, I know:
"All that I was talking in the last 4 years about a big rock album with strong guitars is bullshit! You're gonna get another ATYCLB! Hahahahaha!!! You're gonna listen to pop U2 and cliched singles like Beautiful Day and Elevation!"
Yeah, I feel pessimistic today.

No, it appears to be a "Sammy Official Statement."

If ABOY is about Bono's dad, then maybe AGIRL is about Gavin:

Would be great if "a boy and a girl" meant a double album.
But i guess thats just in my dreams, haha.

They should call the album Dr. Love and the Whole Catastrophe
If it's a double disc

Disc 1 - Dr. Love

Disc 2- The Whole Catastrophe

whoever can identify where that title comes from, you will earn my eternal respect.

I like the way you think!

Personally, I wanted an elephant ... just stomps in and thumps you with its grandeur.

Or, as fans like to call it, Hermy


in all seriousness, IMO the "a boy and a girl" description from Bono could mean that on one hand we will get fast/guitar songs (the boy part) but also the couple of mentioned ballads and more melodic mid-tempo songs (the girl part).
"Punk rock on Venus" could have meant something along those lines, too.

Well,to me the best scenario for the new album would be: mixture between lyricism of Achtung Baby and music of Joshua Tree,but let's wait...Oh,u2girl,i think that the album will hit stores in October-they've waited enough..
I also heard a fan(i think from USA) had a chance to hear all the new songs(12)--is that true or is it a rumour?I don't know

Tilen, someone did post that they heard all 12 tracks - believe it if you'd like.

Well, the same thing happened with ATYCLB--i got some cracky beta version or something-most of the songs there wasn't even Bono singin'!And where i think he did- on the album there was no such music.
But if that fella heard the songs, he must be very close with the band or the management,don't you think?
