Edge is a technophile, he can use that telnet thingie to access their new stuff and release something? Discuss.

The Edge: “[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ‘You know what? We’re not going to second-guess any of this. Let’s just go for it.’”

U2 Fans: We'd all love to see that, Edge.

If I were The Edge, I'd be working right now.

A band could certainly write an album the 2020 way. I dunno hiw U2 would feel about it, though. They songcraft in a room together.

But Edge can definitely be working on riffs and ideas. Even if they have to be in a room together eventually, he can get the first phase rolling very nicely right now.

Bono's phone would be on its charger permanently as he facetimes everyone all day, all night. I can't imagine Bono sitting still by himself at home all day!

Say a prayer for Ali.

I don't want a song or a snippet. I want an album. If we got a song we'd chew through it too fast even if it was decent. Need a full album for it to be a feast.

A turd, like Ahimsa, is a something where I'd rather have nothing.

Well I think Bono and Edge at the very least need to be in the same room to riff off each other. Larry and Adam have phoned it in at times, but watching behind the scenes of NLOTH and other recordings, they're all present when thrashing out ideas and recording. I just can't see U2 recording something with all of them on separate continents and doing a Zoom session.

Unpopular opinion: Ahimsa sucks except the chorus, which is one of the best parts of any U2 songs since SOI. Sucks that it's surrounded by bland verses and terrible autotune at the end.
