    Can you hear it without buying it?
    I have an iTunes gift card I need to use, but I want to hear it first.

    Yes, you can preview each song for 90 seconds. I downloaded the album earlier today, but haven't listened to it yet.

    Isn't it free?

    Yes, but you either need to own a iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to download it via iCloud.

    I thought it was free to all iTunes users. Doesn't matter to me. I hate U2.

    I took a screenshot of the rules from iTunes, but after reading the rules. You need an iOS device, but it does say iTunes music library from your PC or Mac. So I guess, you can download it from iTunes? I tried earlier on my PC and couldn't find the download button, so instead I downloaded it from my iOS device.

    I got nothing. In the U2 ad it says "purchased"; in my library, it doesn't appear in my purchased list. I don't have a cloud button. I have an iPod shuffle.

    Did you click the download button? (Don't know what the interface looks like on your Shuffle.)
    I clicked purchase, then had to click the download icon. It's doing it now.

    I had to logout of iTunes and then sign back in for it to work... Then the songs magically appeared

    I'll try again. I heard one tune on SXM yesterday and it wasn't bad at first listen.

    I plug it into my computer and use iTunes.

    I found this on an Apple forum:

    I have the album now.

    I think the album is very listenable. It's like Coldplay--inoffensive, radio-friendly. (I hate Coldplay.) I didn't find anything that grabbed me right away. Cedarwood Road has a nice little hook played by the Edge and Larry Mullen Jr. but it's buried in a Coldplay song. I'm still wondering where the U2 of "Red Hill Mining Town" and "God Part II" went, but I'm old and irritable.
