"I think this record is just as innovative as Pop, it's just that the thing we're pushing to the forefront is the chemistry of the band playing together, and I think that is why people are referring back to earlier projects."

Gavin Friday: New U2 Album is 'Most Exciting Release Since Achtung Baby'

With Bono apparently on media lockdown (did you know he specifically asked to not speak to reporters a couple nights ago when he was honored in Paris?), it looks like his best mate Gavin Friday is picking up the slack a bit in the album hype department.

Speaking at an event in Dublin this week, Friday told the Herald that he's heard U2's next album and it's their "most exciting release since Achtung Baby." Here's his full quote in the paper:

"I've heard the new album and it certainly is a development. U2 turns corners very quickly and what hits you is how fresh it sounds. With Edge involved, there is still plenty of guitar.

"They asked me what I thought and I told them I really liked it. It's definitely their most exciting release since Achtung Baby."

He also said that U2 has "plenty of their own ideas for song titles" and he hasn't offered any suggestions.

He didn't say anything about when the album might be released, which ... you know ... would've been something we'd all like to know, too. (Maybe the reporter didn't even ask. Sigh.)
