Bono Says New U2 Album Will Be Shorter

Bono told Billboard.biz that U2's next studio album, which is due out some time in 2011, will be a wee bit shorter than 2009's No Line On The Horizon. It's U2. They can do whatever the hell they damn well please.
"We were trying to write an album with No Line on the Horizon that had a kind of narrative and if I look back on it now, it's probably too long. Maybe just by one song or two," Bono mused reflectively. "It's incredible that people think 'Oh gosh I can put 17 songs on this' … it's like more cornflakes in a better box."
More Corn Flakes...better box. That's my new phrase of choice.
Did you like No Line on the Horizon? Are you looking forward to U2's next studio effort?
