Standard U2 brilliance.

Way above average cd, compared to the rest of the world, but only slightly above average in U2-land. It's no "Joshua Tree," but that was just amazing kizmit coming together. NLOTH is still a great cd, though I don't see any "stand-outs" right off-- maybe I need to get back after I listen to it a while. It will be interesting to see what floats to the top of popularity. Powerful music - they are just the kings of the music world. Worth a listen.

review by . March 23, 2009
In the seventeen years (and counting) that I have been a fan of U2 I have noticed that all U2 fans do not stand united with regards to the style of music they enjoy to hear from U2. Allow me to elaborate, U2 music can fall into two different categories (and these categories have subtext and layers), rock and roll is the first category and outlandish experimentation is the second category. It is then a safe assumption to claim that there are two different types of U2 fans the ones that prefer straight …

Pros: "Magnificent," "Stand Up Comedy," "Breathe"     Cons: Studio magic overwhelming at times     The Bottom Line: Please, no more war songs told from the soldier's point of view.     At this point, the praise for any new U2 record being their best since the legendary Achtung Baby album is redundant. It's been done to death. First they released Zooropa, which was their best since Achtung Baby mainly because it couldn't possibly be false. …

Title: No Line On The Horizon  Band: U2  Producer: Brian Eno, Daniel Lanois  Label: Interscope  Parental Advisory: No  If You Can Only Buy One Song Make It: No Line On The Horizon    Unlike most music lovers I'm only an average U2 fan. Oh don't get me wrong: They write great music, but it's not like I've been a loyal fan for their whole career or anything. It's only fairly recently I've gotten into their material, and even then …

I've been looking forward to the release of U2's latest album since I first listened to their last album, HOW TO DISMANTLE AN ATOMIC BOMB, about five years ago. U2 is one of the few rock bands that is able to make music that is not only good to listen to, but that is full of spiritual and philosophical meaning and I enjoy most everything of theirs that I've heard.    After having purchased the album and listening to it several times, I admit that I'm a bit disappointed by NO …

U2 definitely cares what listeners think of their albums--based on listener reactions, the band corrected "Rattle and Hum" with "Achtung Baby" and "Pop" with "All That You Can't Leave Behind." "No Line on the Horizon" corrects the too-close-to-home "How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb" by leaving home and then setting up on Mars. Accusations that the result is too airy or hollow miss the point: just as "Achtung Baby" arose from the nowhere-bound aggresso-alienation of the Nineties, "No Line on the Horizon" …
