OH NO!!! U2 are busy in the studio working on a new album Songs Of Ascent. Even the title has me throwing up in my mouth. Ascent??? Yes, U2, WE2 can reach for the stars. Ugh. Ugh. Ugh.
The Edge threatened “There’s a bunch of amazing pieces that we didn’t finish from the work we did in Fez [for No Line On The Horizon], and there’s the songs we started with Rick Rubin, some of which are amazing songs that I’d love to get back to at some point.” Apparently this was in the unreadable front cover story in Rolling Stone which, well, I seriously skimmed. I picked it up on UK website Live Forever. http://www.live4ever.uk.com/
I wish I still had the issue of RS because it is unintentionally hysterical. These planks really mean it, man? Remember punk, it was made to irradicate bands like U2 from the face of the earth. Neither do these guys.
By the tour the year after next about 75% of it will be new millimium material. Hey, Guys: ascend this.
worse than I remembered it being
a contender for the next Michael Jackson
the indie gorgeousness of mood and quiet desperation
smooth jazz and horns
Taylor was no longer my secret
punk blasts of energy
