Sigh.

But I'm glad to hear they're feeling creative and taking their time, although I was getting a little bit excited.. But that's my fault completely. Oh well, it's U2.

No, no, no! And I was looking forward to the single at the end of this month, too!

Argh.

*GASP!* Do you think they've changed Paul's mind about HAVING to release an album in the fall?!

This seems to be a common mentality, since pre-Christmas sales are the biggest time for record buying in a dwindling market. But it just makes that time period really crowded with high profile releases, making it easier for some artists to be overlooked. (I feel, at least.) U2 doesn't really need that so much, people will buy their album one way or the other.

*sticks fingers in ear* alalalalalala not listening not listening.

They've released an album every 4 years at the end of the year for aslong as I can remember. I don't cope very well with change....

Its odd but U2 always does this. Gets you hyped up for an new album;only to be delayed for another year. typical U2 but its the price you pay. I will take it.

At least it'll be released in early 2009, which means they've broken free of their late fall mind set.

Something different. I'm excited.

Mixed feelings on this, but um... I guess it will give me more time to save money for seeing the tour?

How about a small EP then in the meantime? Please please?? But to be honest, this news actually makes me happier. Happier because they're not 'timing' it for Christmas, they're actually making an album for the sake of music.

When this stuff gets you down, just think of it as extra time to catch up on other musician's you haven't fully explored. Believe me kids, there's more great music in the world than you will ever have the chance to listen to.

Me = crushed.

Just think about this...Last time they came out with an album (not counting 18) was in 2004, and I was a senior in high school.
Now they're saying 2009 for an album and by then I WILL HAVE GRADUATED COLLEGE.

But I'm all about them taking time and not rushing things. And the fact that they hit a great point in their songwriting just makes me smile.

But still! DAMN!

*blink blink* *pout*

Oh well, I guess if they hit a creative high, then it'll be better for the album in the long run. And this gives me more time to take in David Cook's album since it's being released the same time this new album was supposed to come out.

I wonder what this means for the songs they've done so far. I mean, I thought the album was pretty much done. Are we talking a double album? Two back-to-back albums? Are they scrapping some stuff?
