U2 answers your phone

Anyone who would like the mp3 of U2 singing the hold music for Letterman can find it over here. I've trimmed the mp3 down to just their bit, but I don't have the gear to eliminate the crowd noise in the background, if that matters to you.

There are various other Letterman segments in other recent posts there as well if you're looking for anything.

NLOTH formats and an album poll

Out of curiosity, did anyone buy the 60-page magazine format of NLOTH? What's actually in it, that wasn't included in the digipak version? Just wondering if it has extra pictures or what. For that matter, what's the book in the boxset version all about?

And now, a poll. I realise it may be too early to accurately rank the new album alongside its predecessors (either because you're still giddy with excitement or it hasn't had a chance to grow on you yet), but just answer according to how you feel right now.

And a further question which you can answer in the comments - how easy or hard was it to choose for each decade? For me, HTDAAB is by far my favourite album of this decade, and AB is my all-time favourite, although I very much enjoy all the '90s stuff. The '80s album was much harder to pick, it comes down to weighing up how many tracks I would tend to skip on each one, and how strongly I love the best songs on them. The Joshua Tree is the only '80s album where I know every word off by heart, so I guess it must be the most consistent overall, but I certainly don't see it as an obvious winner.
