To all who did listen to the leaked album

How would you rate it compared to other U2 albums? Where does it fit in terms of quality?

Its hard to compare to other albums cause I've had over a decade to digest Achtung Baby, and its still my favorite album. In terms of after about 10 listens, this is up there with JT and AB. Is it better? I dont know, only time will tell. But seriously, for me at least, there are NO weak tracks on this album. NONE...its so great. ATYCLB was incredible to me, but after buying it and playing it straight through once or twice, I started going for the tracks I really liked and just repeated them a lot. With the Bomb, I am playing the whole album straight through, over and over again. What a brilliant effort by the greatest band ever!!

I think its better the ATYCLB and has its own unique sound to it.

It´s a weird mix between some Acthung Baby and ATYCLB, but in the end is pretty new, is not a re-issue of any other U2 album. Worth listen, very nice album. For me, the best songs are Miracle Drug, Sometimes..., City Of Blinding Ligths, All Because Of You, Crumbs For Your Table and Original Of The Species.
Is not the best U2 album indeed, but is better than ATYCLB.

I agree with RademR. I find myself going "oh boy" here comes "fill in song name here."

It is right up there with AB, I agree.

Original of the Species is soooooooo good.

I agree, we've got another Achtung on our hands, and I don't evoke AB lightly.

It's much better than ATYCLB, that´s all I'm able to say for the moment...

I listened to AB for the first time ten years ago and now rank it as a masterpiece.

I have only listened to the new album for 24 hours, it´s great but I have no idea if it will faint as quickly as ATYCLB (though I don´t think so) or suddenly shine as Pop did (after I listened to some of the songs live...)

Ask me again in a couple of years - but for now: It´s marvellous :-)

I'm hearing exactly what I read that it's a mixture of all their album era's. Plus new sounds. My opinion listening right now to Yahweh is slightly similar to JT album sound and or maybe POP.
There's hints of Zooropa, and Im still trying to analyze Love and Peace or Else. I'm really loving it. Heavy guitar to soft to heavy again. There's a lot here and it's hard at this stage to pin it down to any one sound or influence. It changes even within the song. If that makes any sense. Some slight hints of ATYCLB on ABOY. These are strictly my opinions and is subject to change with the more I listen.
They've really outdone themselves on this album. Can't wait to get the DVD and hear where they say certain songs influence's come from.

msvagelj @ yahoo. co. uk

Sej je itak samo še dva tedna do izida albuma (mogoče zdej še manj, če bojo izid premaknili).
Je pa zmeraj težje, ko berem, kako so vsi navdušeni

Its far too early to rate it to other albumes they've done - it'll take years to appreciate how good it is (or not). But the songs are strong, Bono's voice is strong and all the guys playing is superb and totally on-form. Some of Adam's best playing on any album is present here and Edge has found a whole rack of new guitar sounds whilst managing to still sound distinctly "Edge-like".

But the main thing is the songs are fantastic. Each listen is revealing something new. ATYCLB had some great songs in it, but IMO HTDAAB has 11 better and stronger songs overall.

It's truly amazing - I also don't invoke AB lightly - it's my favorite album of all-time and has been since it came out. But HTDAAB has lived up to and gone beyond the hype for me.

Astounding.

the best thing to come from U2 since AB. Stand out tracks for me are Miracle Drug ABOY and a man and a woman.

The problem with this album is that the first 6 songs are so good, that you are waiting for a dissapointment when you start listening to song 7 or 8...
And I think the majority will say that the second part of the album is weaker. It doesn't have a "The Fly" to "wake up" the album. (So what the Fly did on AB after WGRYWH and SC)

So no, it is not as exciting as AB or JT but it's definately a masterpiece IMO

For me it is atmospheric like UF and lyrically heavy like AB. There is a ton of emotion in Bono's singing. That being said I think this album is the most complete album they have ever done. Even songs that have been rated as weak by others are very good to me. For those who have not heard the album yet I predict that you will really really ejoy it....I am not going to say it will blow your mind....it is just really really really good IMO...by the way right now I am really digging Yahweh.
