    they will dress you
    suggest every purchase and every step
    there's a rulebook been written for you
    by the video set
    and unless you just turn it off
    and figure out what you want
    they're gonna program what you find
    because they work so hard at making
    up your mind - Tonio K

    I'm not a huge fan of U Who but I think that the presumption that everyone should have the new album and will have it forced upon them is a bit lofty. What, do they own the music business and peoples personal devices? I say ask before.

    A friend in Singapore told me that there was an incident where there was a jail escape and everyone in the country received a notice and description of the escapee on their mobile phones.

    That's a potential public safety issue, so I can understand that. This is a U2 album.

    this reminds me of back in the day when folks said life wasnt worth living because rock and roll had devolved into Steely Dan and Yes, that something had gone terribly wrong. Enter Johnny Rotten, who 50 years later, and many singing lessons later, still cant sing if his life depended on it.
    i guess the next U2 record, Songs of Experience will only be available via limo from Ireland in gold plated disc, at 500 dollars apiece.

    if the young geezy album appeared on my iphone, should i have had an iphone, i would have ignored it and carried on. of course i cant really tell the difference between the young geezy and the shark valley sisters.

    If any of the new Young Jeezy album is as good as My Hood, I'd like it.

    With 500 million people across 119 countries getting it just because they happen to own a telephone I suspect there are quite a few people who have no idea who U2 are.

    Jeez, there's always someone ready to take the moral high ground.

    I'm pretty sure no one forces you to listen to the new album - it's just there if you want it. No different than all the stuff pre-loaded...

    I agree with the OP. As long as Apple insists on wasting space on the phone with crap like Apple Maps, there are bigger things to complain about than the new U2 album.

    Great comparison - except you CAN delete the U2 album, and you can delete it pretty easily. Took me all of 15 seconds to do that...

    I just clicked on the album in my iTunes "Albums" area, hit "delete" and that was that... :shrug:

    something so imposing and presumptuous shouldn't be associated with the word 'free'.
    there's another audience besides the 'i haven't heard U2 yet,' listeners that they were targeting.
    it's the 'i've heard plenty of u2 and I would prefer not to' group.

    I caught the thursday night football add on tv
    Nice song interesting video that channels Ramones, Patti Smith and that other corporate rocker Springsteen
    Thats a bit much
    Then "free on itunes"

    Fine, go grab it, cool message

    Loading it to accounts is wrong on so many levels


    Radiohead with In Rainbows handled this the best
    We made an album
    Come to our website, decide if you want it
    You tell us what you are willing to pay for it
    Surprisingly people were willing to pay good money

    Of course there they were working in an outside the industry money grab machine
    U2 are part of the machine, getting paid by Apple I'm sure and wanting to force their music into your rooms
    Bono probably thought he was doing a saintly thing

    There's another crowd

    The I used to like U2 but the last x albums have been mediocre and I doubt you have another Actung Baby crowd

    Not if you have things set up to auto download purchases to all or your devices. Then it gets pushed out since it's considered purchased by everyone who has a iTunes account. I don't purchase from iTunes except for Zappa birthday releases and an occasional free track from Starbucks, but I still don't want that stuff on my phone. It's a pain to get it off once it's there too, so after the first time, I turned off cloud services. I got a new laptop and forgot to do it and I opened iTunes and there was a U2 album that I didn't want. The only think I could do is hide it or download it. I can't say I don't want it.
