The Edge is in fine form on guitar. Even though the guitar sounds are not always front and center, the solos are pretty unique from track to track.
Bono is a bit inconsistent in the vocal area. On tracks such as Mofo and If You Wear That Velvet Dress, he sounds muffled as it is difficult to make out the words. However on If God Will Send His Angels and Last Night On Earth the emotion is quite strong.
Overall, this is a good effort by U2 as there are seven pretty good to excellent tunes. They experiment with different sounds without going too overboard. Change is a good thing. However, songwise, the effort is a little short of Achtung Baby.
