Electrical Storm: "...a magnificent song that begins slowly and ends with a roar."
Okay, doesn't this pretty much describe about half of U2's entire catalogue? 'Bad' would match this description; so would many of their "rock ballads". Any guesses as to what we'll get with this song? Apparently the song ends with "crystalline" drums and guitars. Can't wait to hear it! (Oh, and for the record: I think this song will be hard-rocking. Well, at least at the end!)

aaaaaaaaaaanyway...methinks bono has a habit of describing their upcoming albums totally off from what they really are. i remember when bono said their next album (he said this in 95) was gonna be a rock-and-roll album. he's been saying it ever since. where is it? :huh:

pinkfloyd 08-23-2002 09:56 PM

i think pop was an extreme rock'n'roll album mixed with alternative ,underground and Art .

Cowgirl 08-23-2002 10:14 PM

ooh i like that..

mixed with art..very cool pinkfloyd, very cool.

The Wanderer 08-23-2002 10:15 PM

pinkfloyd, you are right on the money with those posts, good work old boy

Zoomerang96 08-23-2002 11:43 PM

i read that too, i can only theyre right.

imagine if its along the lines of fake plastic trees, now that would be cool. ofcourse, it wouldnt be a ripoff but i mean heavy guitars at the end and all ya, enough sorry.

what does crystalline guitars and drums at the end mean?

just so you know, ive read another quote from a person saying the song has a very slow tempo.




Cowgirl 08-23-2002 11:44 PM

u have absolutely no cred now
i mean..

The Wanderer 08-23-2002 11:45 PM

The Wanderer 08-23-2002 11:46 PM

Zoomerang96 08-24-2002 12:04 AM

cant you see?? im turning into u2...a kinder more loving guy that wants everyone to love me even if that means going against my artistic integrity.

The Wanderer 08-24-2002 12:08 AM

but you're showing so much heart and sweetness, you're sure to have lots of girls over our house now!!! will you still be a dynamo in the sack though? I mean, everyone will love you, but won't your art suffer?

Zoomerang96 08-24-2002 12:17 AM

shove "art" up your ass, i want sales at the record stores.

wanderer, i was serious about the person saying that it is slow in tempo.

do you like that?


i hope u2 eventually turns into a fullblown aerosmith.


could they sing about angels anymore?

The Wanderer 08-24-2002 12:29 AM

i would take mortigo tempo

but it's U2 man, let's take whatever we get!

believe and all that shit, they prognosticated all this, I remember Bono saying during the ATYCLB pre-tour kiss-up that they didnt want to become a dinosaur band that just sold records and tickets that relied on their past, so I guess they figured they needed some more pop tunes to generate commercial interest again

zooshadow 08-24-2002 12:53 AM

It's from a story that I found at U2Achtung.com. It's been posted already in the 'Electrical Storm' video thread. Here's the link to the story:
Here's the story:

YouTwo.net: U2achtung.com reports from the set of U2's new video

August 22, 2002
U2achtung.com reports that Bono and Larry met with fans on the beach of Eze during a break of the filming of U2's new video
Wednesday afternoon. Having completed several scenes during the afternoon, Larry indicated to the fans that the "real" filming
would begin later that evening.

Around 9 p.m., a fireworks show was seen in the sky over Bono's home to honor Bono and Ali's twentieth wedding anniversary.
There were a large number of security guards surrounding the home, preventing fans from seeing too much of the video shoot.
Part of the set was visible from a distance; the other was protected by a wall surrounding the home.

U2achtung.com staff could hear the song being played for the filming. They describe it as a "magnificent song that begins slowly
and ends with a roar."
It was played repeatedly.

During the shooting, fans could see Paul McGuiness, Ali, Morleigh, Ann, Jordan, and Eve watching the filming of the video. Paul
McGuinness approached the fans and asked that no one take photos of the filming.

The video shoot went on through the night, with the band taking only a few breaks of no longer than 5 minutes.

Around 1 a.m., a small number of fans were allowed to move closer to the set, where they could actually see the band. Bono wore
a black leather jacket and sunglasses. The Edge wore a white cowboy hat, t-shirt, and jeans. Adam and Larry were dressed "as
usual." Bono was visibly exhausted, but took the time to acknowledge the fans with a wave. When the band wrapped up the
video shoot, Adam came over and spoke to the fans briefly.

on the money
I think you are absolutely when you observe, that description kind of covers most of the things U2 have done.But the first song that came to mind after reading the description, TGBHF.I think it begins rather timidly and then ends with a roar.The outro fits the description of "crystalline" guitar.That said, I think its going to be more edgy, cause neither Eno or Lanois is producing it.(Hopefully)

This is my take.Take out Eno and Lanois and you will have more edgy U2.I was reading an old interview of the band on Hotpress.com and Bono was saying Eno and Lanois "calms" U2.I think if ATYCLB would have been a non Eno/Lanois thing it would have fit the description of "sound of four men", cause it sounds like that in Live.But I thinks it's good for U2 to have a balance of classic production and alternative feel.Let the War of the Fans begin :lmao:
