Not Bad Boys !
After giving the tracks a listen I'm a old duffer and ❤️ the reimagined tunes like Stories for Boys ,11 o clock tick tock ,I will follow ,and out of control Though everyone has different thoughts and favs I certainly feel you've fitted the correct jigsaw pieces into the correct positions
New album
So excited about this new adventure….This album feels like starting new relationships with old friends. Can’t wait to experience the acquaintance all over again…
So many gorgeous surprises
So many in this universe of an album. Every emotion going on listening to this. Thank you, U2!
Under No Circumstances
No way was I falling for this but I was WRONG…. It’s a thing of beauty & I’m obsessed U2 Go Raibh Maith Agaibh
Gratitude To You, U2!
Made it a I2 night after work. My fiancé sat on my lap while on the couch and we listened to the album! Breathtaking, moving, powerful! Just like a Bono whispering the song into your ear. My fiancé has been introduced to U2 by me and now inherited my love and passion. You boys have grown up so much and got this down. You have entered your sweet spot and it’s evident, the best is still yet to come! Brilliant work! We think we may choose one of the songs off the SOS album to walk down the aisle after getting married! They are just so beautiful and it’s hard to choose! Perhaps, Bono & Edge you could come to my wedding and help us sort it out?!
Like it!!!
Must say I was a bit negative after hearing One and WOWY, but after my first listen to the 40 songs I was very surprised. It's a great collection of songs actually!! Headphones are definately recommended to get the full experience. Then again: Release it on blu ray with hi res audio, it was mixed in Dolby Atmos, so bring it on physical media.

6 out of 40
6 songs out of the 40 I like. Stories for boys, who’s Gonna ride your wild horses, ordinary love, lights of home, little things that give you away and 40. Will be glad when the new material is released and Larry is back to perform it live.
as always, music is always about personal taste. I really loved some of these new versions, such as Bad, Two hearts, Until the end, Pride & 40 to mention a few. And some are just not my thing, or I just prefer the original versions. Thanks guys, really enjoying listening to it ! Love & peace
We found what we we were looking for!

A Sort of Homecoming
I watched the Letterman documentary last night after listening to SoS. What a well put together documentary. A great insight and a great overview of the great journey the band has been on and still is! Love the reworkings. I suspect it'll be playing on repeat for some time!
Old songs made new, songs finished and u
I'm currently listening to Bono in the "A Sort of Homecoming" documentary discussing how "Songs of Surrender" has allowed the band to revisit, update, and finish their songs after all this time. It must feel nice for the band get them to the place they've always wanted them to be. That being said, let's not forget that sometimes the "sketches" can be just as good -- and "40 Foot Man" is a strong argument for this point.
A Sort of Homecoming with Dave Letterman
I wanted to watch the documentary before listening to the new album. Amazing insight into the new versions of the great hits that made the band who they are. Can’t wait to see the full version of the live event. Don’t keep us waiting too long, get this show on the road. Looks fabulous. Well done bhoys.
Happy St. Patty's Day
Thank you for the Tiny Desk Concert - what a great St. Patty's Day gift - the back up singers are awesome - so are Edge and Bono - of course!
Great News! Happy St.Patricks Day to all. I am here in Galway to celebrate this special Irish Blessed day. The craic is lively for sure. Will be heading to Dublin Sunday then to Dalkey where I might just get lucky and enjoy a pint with B man and "The Egg:" lol. Yes this re-imagined SOS turned out great. TY for the teasers. Peace
