  3. I heard Bono actually stopped recording in the studio last week because he had to take a piss. Can you believe it? He left the room, pissed, and returned 3 minutes later. Can you imagine the magic they could’ve created in that 3 minutes? I can’t, it makes my head hurt.

  5. Debaser, since you work at the studio and know his recording/work habits, can you tell us what the new songs sound like?

  7. chill out, i dont mean to imply bono isnt working on the album. but you cant deny that bono has been everywhere doing everything these days. its just a hell of a lot, but maybe i’ll just leave the log for a while and come back in a few months! everyday its like “this is what award bono’s winning, this is what cause he is fighting for, and tomorrow: news on his space mission.”

  9. They’ve taken 3-4 years since the ’80s to record the ‘major’ albums (excluding Zooropa) so it sounds like they are on track. If it takes 4 years and we get an Achtung Baby standard album then I’m happy!

  11. some of you guys actually act like you own Bono’s time!

    Please! U2’s music is a privelidge, and even if you ‘ve spent way too much money on u2, that is your choice and your statement is really uncalled for.
    There are more important things in this world than the next u2 album.
    Get a life.

  13. I wish the people above would not make such negative comments. I think this is really great. I have done some things myself to help the cause for these war efforts.

  15. hopefully pav will give bono a good clip around the ears for doing such a bad impression of him on the “hands…” tune. 😉

  17. I agree with Julie, I think what Bono does for Africa and other things are more important then the next U2 album, and anyway they have been working on the Album a lot and I am sure it will released by the end of this year or early next year. I am sick of people’s comments, no matter what it is about Bono doing something, “oh but he has to work on the album” leave the guy alone! And don’t worry the album will be out, but more importantly maybe what Bono does will make the world a better place and I am sure you will all agree it is more important!

  19. i am kind of getting the feeling like some of the ‘shut up’ comments were directed at me, and i would like ot clarify that i don’t think bono’s projects or war efforts are BAD, just that he is doing a damn lot of stuff recently. so excuse me for making a comment. i seriously am gettting sick of this comment bashing. so here: I think another duet with Pav would be awesome. Now I’ll shut up.

  21. I think overextending himself is a legimate concern. He himself hasn’t been speaking out against the war in iraq much because he wants to focus on DATA and related issues… if he is seen as a champion for every cause it dilutes his influence. Also read in sundays new york times that the creators shoebox christmas aids relief thing he spoke at/supported had said things to the like that mohammad was a “pedophilic man possessed by the devil” and islam is bad. I think he just thought it was a good cause and joined in, but he needs to research these connections perhaps.

  23. It feels good to know that there are some people out there trying to improve nowadays situation.
    I admire Bono for his determinatio and compromise.
    Instead of worrying about the next album, you should worry about all the hatred that is being produce by the war.
    I congratulate Bono, and I want to say to him that I really do believe that there are angels in this world and for me he’s one of them.
    keep going!!!Sometimes life seems complicated but with god’s love; everything gets back to normal.
