I was in Madrid the day this Album came out. No publicity: nada! Vinyls? Not yet! At least I bought the extended version whereas I was able to listen to the Book Of Your Heart. I did not expect U2 to come up with such a fine (unfinished?) masterpiece anno 2017.
Looking at the crazy prices for the upcomming Tour, I still said to myself that I have no idea for how long U2 will continue touring (with grand and imporoved quality).
The guitar, Bono's voices and His lyrics remind me of The Unforgettable Fire or any other historical stuff. I didn't expect to be surprized, but I was! True art.
My five cents (no, 473.80€, actually, for two seats + extras).

"I'm of the opinion now that if people have time to be on computers 12 hours a day listening to bits of U2 songs recorded over telephones.. fair dues to them. I wish I had that much time again."

did you know
The guitar in the Discotheque video (the mirrorball Les Paul) is the heaviest Les Paul guitar ever made.
