Somehow, in the midst of a bajillion dollars worth of touring, back surgery, and philanthropy... Bono, The Edge, and the other guys that less than 25% of people who claim to be U2 fans can name have nearly completed THREE ALBUMS worth of material.

Really?

Yes, or so Spinner reports, including some hilarious advice from Coldplay's Chris Martin:

"Across those four, there are 25 to 30 songs. Now we have to decide how we go about releasing them? Do we release them in their groups? Chris Martin called me and said, 'I hear you've got all these albums going. I have a great idea. Why not just pick the best songs from all of them and put them out now?' And I'm like, "Hmm ... "


Admittedly, the group is "not very modern", ignoring the internet/free MP3 promotions in favor of private back-room discussions of how to release the material (fair for an older, established act). Bono claims there are not only 25-30 songs, but each fits into one of these groupings: "'Songs of Ascent', which is the meditative work that was meant to complement [last year's] No Line on the Horizon... a rock album... a club-sounding album. And then we have the Spider-Man [musical] stuff". Oh WOW. I forgot about that. Maybe Ted Leo has something to contribute?

Time will tell if U2 can return to their glory days of anthemic gold, or if they are still just treading water with their clout. -joe puglisi
