    Yup, I had this last week, not a bad album

    With any major release, the record companies start about a week in advance flooding the networks. That way users are more likely to download a spoofed copy," said Jim Graham, a spokesman for California-based online piracy tracking firm BayTSP."But over time, the pirated versions win out. It's very cat and mouse. It's like the Cold War," he added.
    Cawk, like the Cold War

    Is it anything like their past stuff, or totally changed?

    Always did like U2...even when they first came out in the early 80's.

    Try the CD's "Under a Blood Red Sky" & "The Unforgetable Fire"

    I think you'll like them.

    U2 have been known for changing their sound...this time its got all bits from their previous albums *except the disco shit they did in the mid 90's thank gawd*...But yeah i got all U2's stuff and i really like this album...its a real emotion packed one...My favourite song from this album is "Love And Peace Or Else"...its a real sleazy rock sound...very nicely done...But i don't think U2 would care about a few thousand downloads...they have enough money to last the rest of their lives...and with Bono's charity work...he surely has enough money...
