iTunes Editors' Notes

With each subsequent album, U2 has pushed itself into new forms. Though evolving, the band is able to underpin its releases with that same rally-cry, post-punk take on rock 'n' roll that has been with the group since the beginning. The group's 2009 return to the main stage comes in the form of No Line On the Horizon. From the striking minimalist cover art (from Japanese artist Hiroshi Sugimoto) to the production powerhouse trio of Brian Eno, Daniel Lanois, and Steve Lillywhite, this album positions itself in the same vein as the expectation-ignoring Achtung Baby. First single "Get On Your Boots" is slightly misleading — the album is not all chunky riffs and electro-jamming. Fact is, a good solid third of the album contains some of their most meditative work since The Unforgettable Fire (see the slow burn of "Unknown Caller" and "White As Snow"). But if you're looking for the big songs — and no one does big like U2 — "Magnificent" and "I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight" are the standouts.

Customer Reviews

U2 gör det bra

Efter U2 hade släppt första singeln "Get on Your Boots" till albumet så började jag oroa mig lite - visst man vet aldrig vad man har och vänta sig från U2 i albumväg men det var inte helt min stil. Ni som har hört låten, jag kan säga att den är rätt så representativ för resten av albumets mer fartiga låtar (vilket är runt... en eller två till bara), men det är i de mer långsamma som U2, med Bono i spetsen som albumet står ut, och det med besked. Min favoritlåt är utan tvekan "Moment of Surrenender" - modern poesi om något! Även andra lugna låtar som "White as Snow" och "Cedars of Lebanon" är mycket bra. Gör inga totalt radikala utsvängingar som de har gjort i till exempel i albumen "Pop" och "Zooropa", men frågan är om vi inte är lite tacksamma för det också? Albumet representerar U2 mycket bra; de utvecklas och är tidsenliga, men de släpper aldrig sina rötter, något som märks - albumet har det speciella U2-soundet; lite preteniöst - men vad är U2 utan det?

Much better than expected

Bought this album for one single reason - I was going to the concert in Gothenburg, Sweden and the only thing I heard from this album was "Magnificent". To my surprise there was a lot of great songs - the title song, Moment of surrender, I'll go crazy... and Unknown caller is my favourites, but the other song are growing day by day. Sometimes it feels good to be wrong, I thougt U2 was finished after "Achtung Baby", but this album proves that I was totally wrong. U2 is still one of the best groups in this genre.

Inget nytt!

Låter precis som gamla albumet, inget nytt!

Biography

Formed: 1976 in Dublin, Ireland

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Through a combination of zealous righteousness and post-punk experimentalism, U2 became one of the most popular rock & roll bands of the '80s. They were rock & roll crusaders during an era of synthesized pop and heavy metal, 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,...
