I listen to mainly u2 tbh just try and play different albums and different gigs/live performances. But I always check out new material from artists I like and listen to the classics now and again. I’ve completely lost touch though with popular new releases. I don’t really know many new bands coming through so it is just new material from well established bands that make up my other listening time.
I have heard thousands and thousands of songs from hundreds of different types of artists and bands for the last 35 years or so..... Now I find only U2 among them standing tall...... All other bands or artists I have heard or liked have vanished.
I’m into different genres of music everyday.music is my life and i play records and cds daily
But at least once a week something of U2 comes to my ears....now I’m playing this little box of Sigue Sigue Sputnik with Flaunt it remastered
Yesterday I played R&H because I bought another issue ( another translucent brown Canadian issue) and on my list i have Agnes Obel Paul Weller Carcass and D.R.I...........btw weekly i play U2
I'm probably about 50-50 but tend to listen to different bootlegs more than albums. As much as U2 are the centre of my musical universe, I'm always on the lookout for new local artists and have been listening to a lot of young, female singer-song writers over the last 4 or 5 years.
"If we’re going to make an album, it’s very important to us that every song on the album is a '10'. I think the reason people aren’t buying albums is a lot of times they only get one or two good songs. For us, every song had to be extraordinary, and special, and unique, and the whole had to be better than the sum of its parts. You’ll have to decide if we achieved that, but that’s what we were attempting."
