We have a new You Too poll, you can vote for this new poll on the frontpage and discuss it in this thread.
The question of this new You Too is:
You Too: How much do you still listen to SOE after 4 months?
- Still on a regular basis, every few days or more often
- Less then when it came out, but still regularly
- Almost not anymore, occasionally
- I don't really listen to Songs of Experience anymore
- I barely listened to Songs of Experience at all
Please vote on the frontpage of the website, in this topic you can tell us why you voted for your answer.
Still really often. I give it a full or almost-full play through pretty much twice a week... Although if this poll had gone up a month ago, it'd be less. I've kind of gotten back into the album again after a break.
I’m listening to a lot more u2 than usual in general right now but SOE tops the list. I’ve just recently made a mock playlist which consists of my Setlist prediction + landlady slotted in so that will start being my go to and features plenty SOE songs.
Far too many vinyl records to listen to than get hung up on just one. It gets an occasional listen because in fairness there are some great songs on the album. No doubt it will get a good few spins leading up to the gigs in the UK.

Larry Mullen Jr. is well-known for his dislike of the Passengers album. In 2002, when reflecting on the album, he mentioned while it hadn't grown on him, Miss Sarajevo (with Luciano Pavarotti) 'is a classic'. The song was played subsequently on the 2005 - 2006 Vertigo Tour and 360 Tour (2009 - 2011).
