The NEW Album from U2

Release Date: November 23, 2004

The first single, "Vertigo," is set to be released before the end of the month.

Steve Lillywhite produced the new album, his first time producing an entire U2 album since Boy, October and War.

The new album will include 11 tracks, six of which are entitled as follows:
Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own
City of Blinding Lights
A Man and A Woman
Crumbs From Your Table

Early Praise
I've heard it, it's great. It's the best album they have ever done. It's going to knock them out! -Bill Flanagan, U2 Biographer
There's no crunk-style rapping, no gospel choirs or techno experiments. Instead, this album is just full of confident, expansive guitar rock from the masters of the form. -Time Magazine

November 22nd will be a great day! :D


October then War then Joshua Tree is my own favourite order.

They always seem to release around November, maybe Bono knows it's my birth month and that is his thankyou for my buying all his books and music.

I have 'Boy' on a cassette, might be a good idea to buy boy on CD and the new album together, i wil drop hints to ' her whom must be obeyed'! (The Girl)

I'll be interested to see what they sound like when the first single hits the radio. One song won't define the sound [like it used to] but these days I never know what they'll come up with next.

edit: it will be leaked early tho.
And, of course, sadly, it already has.

I'm listening to the album for the first time right now, and it is amazing! It's beautiful, classic U2 and I'm loving it the first time through. This isn't one of those you have to listen to a few times to start getting into it... what else can I say? I love it!!! :D

Album performance so far...

At the end of the first day of sales, "Vertigo" continues to be the #1 single on iTunes and the new album is #1 in the top albums slot. Also, "The Complete U2," the first-ever "digital box set," is #3 in sales. The box set is 445 songs -- including every album, single and b-side the band has ever recorded. The set is being sold for $149.99, instead of nearly $450.00 at the usual $0.99 per song. $149.99 is a bargain, but still quite a bit of money to shell out, so it's impressive that so many people have bought the set to push it to #3 in sales. Also, early predictions are that the album will surpass $1 million in U.S. sales by week's end.

Tough to choose a favorite so soon, but I'm really loving "Miracle Drug" and "Sometimes You Can't Make it on Your Own" at the moment. :D
