U2 in full flight

Get ready for the wind beneath their wings. The Edge talks to Launch on the follow up to ATYCLB: “Right now, my instinct is to make a very raw kind of guitar, bass, drums–an album with a lot of attitude and a lot of that kind of life force, vitality that I associate with guitar bands in full flight. That’s kind of the feeling I want to put into our next record.” (via Thomas @ U2star.com)

  5. I wonder what Bono means by this ? “We’ll get back into the studio soon. We’re halfway through a record that will burn down all our good works!”

    ????????

  7. they have talked like this before every album. It’s raw, it’s heavy, and then it always seems to be produced and mixed into radio friendliness. So personally, I’ll believe it when I hear it!!!

  11. Sounds great, Edge, now make it real this time! Record the whole album in the “loud room” that Lanois talks about. Keep these words on the table: raw, Ramone, rejoice, riled, rude, Rock. Keep these words off the table: review, revise, remix, re-record. Need assistance? Give me a call, I’ll be happy to help:-)

  13. It sounds like the band is ready to come full circle! If ATYCLB was a preview this record should be a killer!

  15. Riiiight. I recall hearing that ATYCLB was going to be raw, full of life force, a big rock record. Instead we got an adult contemporary mess filled with bland guitar solos weak rythms and the worst lyrics of Bono’s career. They followed with Beautiful Day 2 (Electrical Storm) and horribly weak mixes of their Pop tunes. “You dind’t like Pop? Oh sorry, we’ll make it more mainstream for you.” Not the typical attitude from the “punk band” Bono claims U2 to be. Really, I’d love to be blown away by the next U2 album. But I heard these exact comments before, and the dozen counts of polish on ATYCLB ceratainly didn’t eqaul “raw.” I’ll believe it when I hear it and be the first to eat crow.

  17. Yep, and ATYCLB was going to be “platinum soul” with a “fire in its belly”. Not exactly the outcome, was it? It’s Peter and the wolf all over. I wonder if it’s true this time? Or the next? Or the…?

  19. Watts: Go and break into the studio and make damn sure that U2 do as you say. No more crap ballads. More ROCK and even a bit of sleaze…
