New U2 album, Songs of Innocence...

...what do you think of 1) the album itself, 2) putting in in every iTunes account?

Re: New U2 album, Songs of Innocence...

If it's in my iTunes account, I'm sodding well deleting it. Most overrated band, ever.

Re: New U2 album, Songs of Innocence...

No idea how it sounds, and I delete every iTunes promo. email without reading anyway.

All a bit of a storm in a spy plane, if you ask me.

1) Have not listened to it
2) Acknowledges that the music industry is broken anyway, so might as well get paid directly by Apple for the effort.

Re: New U2 album, Songs of Innocence...

1) I think of it as one of the best U2 albums, with a lot modern yet retro sounds
2) a bit of showing "we can do with your account whatever we want"

Re: New U2 album, Songs of Innocence...

I'm not particularly in agreement with Apple stuffing an album into my account, but if it's free I'll give it a listen.

Re: New U2 album, Songs of Innocence...

thanks for the thread, I was wondering why that was in my Ipod, I deleted the email from Itunes!

I would rather listen to Coldplay. Actually scrap that I would rather listen to Avici. That's also bollocks, I going to throw my Ipod into the lake

it sounds like a tactic from a band who know they won't sell very much of their new album

Or a band that has a grandiose idea of reaching to as many people as possible?

Unlikely, as I've never purchased anything on iTunes, so a Purchased section cannot exist.

Re: New U2 album, Songs of Innocence...

Well, final people acted about that event. I found the article only in German, so absolute sorry for those who are not very well in that language.

Tough translation would be: How do I get ride of that (your choice to put in the word you think makes it here). It is of course each personal choice to think about what ever he feels is good for his taste.

Here we go:

Re: New U2 album, Songs of Innocence...

You only found the hating of this U2 album being foisted upon every iTunes user?! It's like a rash all over Twitter and the news

Re: New U2 album, Songs of Innocence...

finally, Apple shows some innovation and everyone complains again.
keep in mind that they just invented spamusic (or iSpaMusic but definitely not spa-music).

would they have it patented?

#1 - "I've just found out a free album has appeared on my iTunes account."

#2 - "You, too?"

Re: New U2 album, Songs of Innocence...

I quite liked the first track .. But then i really liked the Ramones so maybe that's why..

But hey, just accept the freebie, or delete it. No harm done.
