Looking at the iTunes Deluxe edition, it comes with 2 bonus tracks(one exclusive to iTunes and the other a pre-order bonus), Anton Corbijn's film "Linear", Digital Booklet, and a Digital Booklet - Magazine. All for $17.99.

I don't know what bonus tracks come with the other retail versions but I'm curious as to what they are.

I've heard the album several times, and I can say I like it. It's not Joshua Tree. Sorry. How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb is a better album.

Was it supposed to be the Joshua Tree? Second part is your opinion of course...

You are right, it's not The Joshua Tree.

As for the second part, are you serious? I think ATYCLB is a better album than HTDAAB. I remember popping HTDAAB in the first time and saying, "Yeah it's good, but it sounds like the last album except not as good."

No Line is by far better than How to Dismantle.

Agreed. I liked a few songs from HTDAAB but overall it was not a very good album. For me, it ranks down at the bottom with Pop.

I'd like to get the super deluxe edition but not for $65. Looks like you get a book with pictures, a poster and a DVD. Oh boy! I'll stick with the $25 digi-pack deluxe version.

64.99 is the cheapest so far but none of the ads for next week are out yet. I've had pretty good luck getting U2 deluxe versions at Best Buy on release day for less than their pre-order price. I'm hoping for a 49.99 boxset on the day it comes out.

Yeah, but it still boggles the mind. I feel guilty spending an extra $3 for the deluxe versions of albums that come with DVDs.

$25.99 for the Digi-pack Limited Edition through Amazon and they don't even give you Anton Corbijn's film on DVD, you gotta download it. So, I guess you pay the extra $15 for the download link and a Poster. I might just stick with the CD only version. lol

Has anybody heard any more concrete info/news on what the Corbijn DVD contains? No way am I shelling out for the ultra-mega set until I see what all the fuss is about. I think I'm only in for the standard version for now.

Given how terrible Atomic Bomb was, I can only imagine how unlistenable the reject tracks from it are.

In other U2 news:

Originally Posted by Qthemusic.com
U2’s Spiderman musical could open within a year, guitarist The Edge has revealed.

He and Bono have been writing the music and lyrics for the project which is being made with Tony-winning director Julie Taymor.

Speaking for the first time about the project, The Edge said a number of the songs had already been written and the musical is “in a pretty good state”.

In an interview for the new edition of Q, he explained: “I think the musical had its heyday back in the ’40s, ’50s, ’60s era. I don’t think there’s been anything that interesting done in it since … Anyway, we’ve always harboured this sneaky ambition that maybe one day we might try our hand in that area."

Since hooking up with Taymor, who won Tonys for her work on Disney's Lion King, Bono and The Edge have teamed up with scriptwriter Glenn Berger. "He’s come up with some great dialogue. The overall story was really Julie working with Glenn, and Bono and myself riding shotgun with the odd idea here and there – as they do for the songs.

"We love to delve into other people’s creative worlds and figure out how it all happens. We’ve written a lot of the songs at this point. It’s in a pretty good state, and I hope it’ll open this year. We’re not sure where in the world, but most likely it will be in New York."

It is not the first time U2 have been associated with a comic book movie - they wrote the theme for Batman Forever, Hold Me Thrill Kiss Me Kill Me which featured an animated version of the band in the promo.

The guitarist said he and Bono would be around for a "good few weeks" of the rehearsals: "There won’t be a full orchestra – it’ll be something like 18 or 20 musicians: string players, brass, some woodwind. The core will be a rock’n’roll band. But it is going to be interesting to write for other people. We have already written a lot of songs that are for women to sing. That’s a whole other set of challenges, to write in the right key and all those technical things."
Sorry if this is a repost. I hadn't heard about it before.

I heard this on the radio this morning and thought that Bono & Edge would be playing the music, not just writing it. Still, it should be interesting. The radio said that it was the highest budgeted musical ever at $40 million, and that it is supposed to be on Broadway.

So I watched the video of what each set looks like and am I correct in that the Deluxe set basically contains the book from the magazine version + Digi-pack version + the movie on DVD?
