Even Better Than......the original thing! @ 09:28 pm

carobanano:
I'm currently feelin: :D

For those who want to cut to the chase: my friend cleaned up the Vertigo clip and put a new copy of it here: http://users.adelphia.net/~destra96/u2.mp3

The whole story: one night, some weeks ago, my friend (his name's Eric) and I were IMing each other. I was being my normal fangirly self and rambling about U2 when he said, "I'm actually listening to 'Gloria' right now." To which I of course, being the obsessed fangirl I am, responded, "You are? Really?! Cool!!" He told me he did indeed have UABRS. (Am I the only one who gets really excited to discover that friends and acquaintances own U2 albums? Or am I just a major fangirl dork for that?) I advised him to check out some of their 90's stuff. And about an hour later, out of nowhere, he said, "Hey, I'm listening to Achtung Baby right now, and I really like it!" Continuing to be a fangirl I said how awesome that was, etc. etc. He has now, apparently, converted to full-fledged fandom. YES! I am so proud. And so, yesterday, he wrote this:

I was bored this morning so I took a couple hours to clean up this mp3 clip of the new u2 album: http://www.stuckinamoment.net/Songs/u2-2004niza.mp3. It has a couple guys talking and being generally noisy (I think one of them unzips his fly about 30 seconds in). I couldn't get of them without ruining the music, too, so I had to settle for eliminating the background noise and what sounds like the ocean (maybe that's supposed to be there, but I don't care) and trying to fix the resulting mess by boosting the lower end frequencies. Also I normalized the volume to make the voices a little quieter with respect to the music. I don't know how well I succeeded with my overall mission, but here's the resultant mp3: http://users.adelphia.net/~destra96/u2.mp3

My sounds system is thoroughly screwed up, so I haven't listened to it yet. Let me know how it sounds and I'll pass along the word to Eric! (Unless he joins the community which I may just have to make him do.)

Caroline! This is wonderful. You can definitely hear the music better...the lack of ocean is excellent. There's still a bit of that in there but not as much as there was. And the guys' voices are quieter for sure. Thank you for the link and thank Eric for doing it!
