Great band! Great album!

This album has so many good songs.


Why isn’t it free?

I had it on my old phone but now have to pay for it. 😑

$17 is a definite improvement over free

It has been a little over two years since the fateful morning when millions had auditory rape thrust upon them. In that time skin has thickened and the rawness of the indignity of finding U2 on a device normally reserved for music has subsided. At least that’s the hope. Apple for their part in the debacle has corrected the technological aspect and iTunes users must make several misclicks or taps and pay to be punished with banshee-like wailing and infantile lyrics; no longer are these “songs” inflicted on the innocent!

The album itself is perhaps the best that U2 has to offer. At worst Songs of Innocence is classic U2 but there are several points where the album becomes surprisingly listenable. The Edge displays glimpses of musical talent when playing the piano on several tracks. There can be no doubt that picking up the guitar is where things went wrong for this poor rich man and the listening public.

In closing Songs of Innocence is objectively a dreadful piece that should be avoided by those of good musical taste. Masochists and U2 fans will enjoy it for reasons as disparate as their fetishes.
