iTunes Review

In 1991, U2 received much critical kudos for Achtung Baby!. The four-piece band had reinvented themselves as an entirely new group, abandoning their chiming moonwalk atmospherics for the explosive, impending electronica age. However, the '90s didn't turn out quite as they planned and by 2000 the band were back with their old producers trying to re-find their inner U2. Can you go home again? Well, it seems you can bury the point all together by simply writing and recording songs that make it feel as if you never took the detour in the first place. Atomic Bomb, much like the previous All That You Left Behind, features trademark U2 moves delivered with their sonically commanding depth and unashamed emotional range. "Vertigo" opens the album with a stark, yet full-bodied, blast. "Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own," "Crumbs From Your Table," and "Yahweh" yearn with spiritual concerns that no amount of material success seems to satisfy.

U2 at their absolute best! Vertigo is a brilliant song and City Of Blinding Lights is a really great tune. The whole album is a mix of pure musical genius. Buy This Album!


I have been a fan of U2 for 22 years now and I have to say that HTDAAB is a real treat as it takes me back to when I first heard such luminaries as War and of course The Joshua Tree, which takes a lot of beating. Tracks such as Original of the Species, Yahweeh, Miracle Drug Man and A Woman fit in very nicely with the more classic rock sounding tunes of Vertigo, Crumbs From Your Table and City Of Blinding Lights, although I have to say having seen them perform on the Vertigo Tour it just makes me want to listen to this album more and more. Superb, if you have not already bought this album, then what are you waiting for.

All because of U2!

I wasn't really into U2 before but after hearing song's such as 'Vertigo', 'Sometimes You Can't make it on your own' and 'Original of the species' I decided to buy this album, and I have to say it's Brilliant! I'm now a massive U2 fan and plan to buy there back catalog! Buy this, It's Great!

Through a combination of zealous righteousness and post-punk experimentalism, U2 became one of the most popular rock & roll bands in the world -- equally known for their sweeping sound as for their grandiose statements about politics and religion. The Edge provided the group with a signature sound by creating sweeping sonic landscapes with his heavily processed, echoed guitars. Though the Edge's style wasn't conventional, the rhythm section of Larry Mullen, Jr. and Adam Clayton played the songs...
