iTunes Editors’ Notes

As a young band with the burning desire to become an epic and legendary one, U2 placed an even greater emphasis on their overall sound and impact than on their individual songs. Sure, they had their anthems – “New Year’s Day,” “Sunday Bloody Sunday” – but the band was always more interested in finding ways to expand their sonic palette and fill the arena with grandeur. For their fourth album, they enlisted the help of producer Brian Eno and his protégé Daniel Lanois, an engineering team noted for their experimental and ambient processes. The results came in as expected. The mood was thicker with atmosphere than riffs (“A Sort of Homecoming,” “MLK”) and when the band did embark with ambitious anthems — “Pride (in the Name of Love),” “Bad” — it was with layers of shimmering guitars and dynamics that went from whispers to screams. Their self-mythologizing “Elvis Presley and America” pushes them to the edge of their pretensions. But the overall moodiness here makes for an entrancing listen of a group about to be catapulted into the stratosphere of superstardom.

Customer Reviews

An Amazing Album That Is Nothing Short Of Wow

Weather you’re a U2 fan or not you probably have always regarded U2's first great album as being The Joshua Tree. Well The Unforgettable Fire came out 3 years before Joshua Tree did. In my opinion it was the first real "Album" that they had released to that point. From the soaring atmospheric sounds of 'A Sort of Homecoming' to the powerful and moving ‘Bad’ and then to the quiet yet overpowering 'MLK', this album is just that. An Album. It might not have there most well known songs like 'Where The Streets Have No Name' or 'With Or Without You' but what it does have is a surreal kind of Quality that just flows over you the second you start listening to it. When I listen to The Unforgettable Fire it takes me to another place. The drums and bass are heart stoppingly powerful, the Guitar is so vast and unique that it just catapults you into the stratosphere and the vocals take you to somewhere beyond that. The best way I can put all of what I’ve said into perspective is this: Me giving this album 5 Stars doesn't do it justice. It just scratches the surface, which is really what this album did for U2. They followed it with all of their most well known albums. If you have the money then I highly recommend this album to a U2 fan or just a casual music fan in general for you will more than enjoy it.

Hands down U2's best album

In many cases, a band's best album is its transition album--the one in which the band finds a slightly different sound on it's way to major success. This holds true for U2, one of the greatest bands in the world. Overall I like their material from the 2000s even more than the 1980s, but The Unforgettable Fire is the album I keep coming back to, and in my opinion "Bad" captures the band's energy better than any other song they have done.

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,...
