U2 - Get on Your Boots

I liked this the first time I heard it, but now I'm having doubts.  Sounds a bit forced.  It either feels really old or like the poorly sister of Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me.  Anyway the whole album's been leaked but I've thus far resisted the temptation to, ahem, download it.  Apparently the record company in Australia put it up on the official website early and it's available as a Torrent already.  Not that I've checked that...

Even if the new album is a dud, they'd still make the Isle of Wight Festival, which at the moment John Giddens is turning into a personal crusade to ruin my life!  Seriously, I'm gonna get lynched by the Ledgers, two of whom I've convinced to attend, if the line up doesn't get sorted soon.  But the chances of U2 turning up are about as likely SKY+ HD turning up before the end of the season.

Elbow, though, on the Sunday would indeed be awesome.  Simple frickin' minds, would not. Apart from Don't You Forget About Me.  Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey!!
