Re: U2 - No Line On The Horizon.

They wrote the album with Lanois and Eno, so the rest of it should be good, but Daniel Lanois does sometimes have a bit of a cliché streak which probably rubbed of on the rest of them.

I figure the lyrics have something to do about Israel’s conflict with Lebanon a while back, the “Get on you’re boots” line is referring to going out to a nightclub(Lebanon is infamous for their nightlife) and they mention bomb scares and wars between nations. Probably wrong about that, but it makes the song a lot less nonsensical.

Edge, Larry and Adam are in high form, and besides the odd lyrics Bono sounds good. So hopefully the rest of the album is better then the first single.

Here's the leaked video http://dreamoutloud.tumblr.com/ It's a bit strange, kind of like a Bond opening credit. It was supposed to be released officially today, but was held back because it contained Getty images water marks. The inclusion of stock images has led some to believe that the video will somehow be remixable, there is also a rumor that the album itself will be remixable.

Walmart has 30 second previews of every song on the album, if it won't load then U2 the fan page has a stream and download of all the samples in one file.

The track listing is as follows.

1. No Line on the Horizon

2. Magnificent

3. Moment of Surrender

4. Unknown Caller

5. I'll Go Crazy, If I don't Go Crazy Tonight. (wow that's a bad title)

6. Get On Your Boots

7. Stand Up Comedy (wow that's almost as bad of a title as I'll go crazy)

8. Fez/Being Born

9. White as Snow

10. Breathe

11. Cedars Of Lebanon

My DVR's almost full, I'll have to get rid of some stuff. Or just get the vids off the internet, it's still a couple weeks until they're on so I don't have to worry that much.

Two albums this year?

This should make 2na happy.

"It bodes well for the album that will follow No Line on the Horizon, which has, he says, "the idea of pilgrimage at its centre," and is made up of the "quieter, more meditative songs" that did not make it on to this one. "Intimacy is the new punk rock," Bono added, laughing. But is it the new stadium rock?"

I have no idea where people are getting the idea that this follow up album will release in 2009, most likely just blind speculation.
