    Pop 25th Anniversary Thread... What do you want?

    I am strongly in the camp that Pop was U2's last great adventure. I could never say it better than Stereogum's article, Pop at 20 in 2017 which sums it all up perfectly. An epic piece of music journalism: The last three...

    2022 subscriber gift: Achtung Baby 30 Live

    'U2 Achtung Baby 30 – Live' This could be interesting and great. In all likelihood though, the tracks selected will probably be previously released live b-sides . What I'm most curious about is what they will use for So Cruel, since it's only been done full band live twice in 1992. I imagine...

    RSD 2022 release: A Celebration 12" with unreleased studio outtake I'm very interested to hear an alternate studio version of A Celebration. I'm curious if it's a different performance or just a difference mix. I also wonder if this means the regular version will be a new master sourced from...
  6. TheWanderer's latest subscription "gift"

    "The complete tracklisting will be published in early 2019 with shipping beginning in Spring 2019. " Here we are one day into summer 2019, and unless I can't find it, still no full tracklist revealed.

    my band's cover of Mercy

    While we are still working on our ninth studio album, my band decided to record an album of covers to stay sane. The idea was to take a break every fourth week and record a cover to keep the musical juices flowing, and have fun without the pressure of writing from scratch. One of the songs is...

    U2's discography now Mastered For iTunes

    I couldn't find a thread on this... U2's entire catalog has been mastered for iTunes and went up last week and all albums are on sale at $5.99. SOI and JT30 had already been MFiT, but all the other are up there now too. For those not aware, MFiT is where the compressed AAC is ripped from...

  10. TheWanderer's latest subscription "gift"

    Ugh, terrible. Better than those lame lithograph prints, but that was the worse gift ever. Why don't they just release a live album from the vault every year? U2 are one of the greatest live bands and there is such slim official releases, and mostly fan club releases. Another Tine Another Place...

    Did the new version of Red Hill Mining Town leak out yet?

    Both copies from this transcode rip are pretty terrible to judge the EQ of the mix. God, I hate transcode rips with every fiber of my being. I dunno, the brass and strings are a bit much. The louder guitars and backups vocals are nice though.

    Kendrick Lamar - "XXX." ft. U2

    Featuring U2? What is Edge doing on this track, anything? Doesn't sound like his piano style.

    Why is Larry's tattoo on vinyl labels and both covers of SOI?

    Why is Larry's tattoo essentially on both covers of SOI, and also on the vinyl labels? The B&W with this son (great cover), it just happens to be on him, but it seems odd that it is also on the iTunes release cover and huge on the vinyl labels. Surely there is artistic intent behind this. I'm...

    Sunday bloody sunday sound guitar setup

    Looks good. On the album, he doesn't actually use any delay, funny enough (anywhere on the album, actually). But live in the 1980s, the Strat -> Memory Man -> AC30 is how got that sound. Best heard for SBS of course in the Rattle & Hum movie. You're using the Super Overdrive which is a good...

    I thought it was going to be about the 2017 gift CD, which I was hoping to be impressive.

    U2 Get Set For Summer

    They do A Celebration, nice. Love it. Also nice to hear Rejoice. That tune is stronger than I remember.

    Stereogum article "Pop At 20"

    This article is long but a great read. Pop Turns 20 - Stereogum As a HUGE fan of their '90s material, and the shift post-2000 they made, I feel the author totally nails everything that was great then and less than great now. The last paragraph is harsh but true:
  20. TheWanderer – Joshua Tree 30th Anniversary Editions

    I'm excited to hear the eight remixes. That's pretty cool. We could have just got the same B-sides and outtake we already have, and nothing else. That being said, I'm sure more sketches and demos like Rise Up exist. Shame we don't get those. Rise Up is so brilliant! Bummer UF and Bad are cut...
