U2's Invisible Review

Invisible the second song or technically the first or just a single, heck at this point who knows, we all have been waiting for the next release for what seems to be months and yet we are no closer to any actual announcement of the next studio album.

We like to call it “Lucky 13” just because we have no real title to announce at this time.  “Invisible” is a bit different and yet the same for those U2 fans that have been around for a while.  LA Times review was not as flattering, which is nothing new for reviewers. 

Bono did say once or I am guessing he did that he was listening to Kraftwerk which we can pick up within the single.

U2 does not depart from the message of hope, peace, and faith that is one of the staple trademarks, and you can really start to dig into the idea that God has not departed the room, yet.  Musically the band seems challenged to find its way into this new music world and yet bring forth their devoted fans as we all march towards 60.  The single may provide us the framework for what is to come of U2 or it might be a floating balloon to which the band will see who hangs on.  One thing is for sure. U2 is coming straight toward us this year with a full album that might just be released in the middle of darkness. We give it a 5 stars for different yet the same and with a splash of possibility

 

U2 "Invisible Lyrics

Invisible

Its like the room just cleared of smoked
I didn’t even want the heart you broke
It’s your to keep, you just might need one


I finally found my real name
I won’t be me when you see me again
No, I won’t be my father’s son

I’m more than you know
I’m more than you see here
I’m more than you let me be
I’m more than you know
A body and a soul
You don’t see me but you will
I am not invisible

I don’t dream not as such
I don’t even think about you that much
Unless I start to think at all

Out of (ALL) those frozen days
And your frozen ways

 

They melt away your face like snow

I’m more than you know
I’m more than you see here
I’m more than you let me be
I’m more than you know
A body and a soul
You don’t see me but you will
I am not invisible
I am here

There is no them
There is no them
There’s Only us
There’s Only us
There is no them
There is no them
Only us
There’s only us

There is no them
There is no them
There’s only you
There’s only me

There is no them

U2 Wants to be Relevant in 2014

Should U2 call a day after this next album ? Staying relevant has already been a center point for Bono and the boys. Clearly today's Superbowl release embarks the boys on a new journey with new direction from Guy  Oseary and Live Nation.

“U2′s been on the verge of irrelevance for 20 years. We’ve dodged and we’ve dived and made some great work along the way and occasional faux pas, but this moment where we’re at, to me, feels really close to the edge of irrelevance.” Haunting words from Bono during an interview that we can be sure the marketing machines at Live Nation never wanted to see published.

Should they quit ? 360 Tour  was amazing however it was only amazing because of their 30 year discography and not with standing their current album at the time "No Line On The Horizon"  which failed to achieve the success that the boys had hoped for.

U2 debuts a song off its first album in five years--"Invisible," an anthemic, reflective look at lead singer Bono and the band leaving their native Ireland as young men.

"Invisible" is inspired by Bono's migration with the band to London as they tried to land a record deal nearly four decades ago, and the emotional consequences inherent to all hometown departures, its lyrics ("I'm more than you know") suggesting a man on the cusp of reinvention.

U2 marketing machines have been fast at work rebuilding the U2 of yesterday and bringing forth some new elements to grab the attention of this new digital single age.  Reaching across the pond to engage Hollywood the boys created "Ordinary Love" as the the entry back to the center of the music world winning an Golden Globe and scoring a Oscar nomination you can see that U2 plans to remain relevant.  Today's Super Bowl commercial can be viewed as the official start of the year of U2.

U2 Single "Invisible"

Just in from U2.com "There's been some online buzz this week about what the band have been up to in LA. Here's the scoop. It's all about a new song called 'Invisible', a track the band will be releasing as part of an initiative with (RED) to support the fight against AIDS. Everybody's really excited about the song and the band have been shooting the video in LA."
