U2 are always U2.......
As always U2 is fresh! This is a band that cannot make you become bored of them, because they never make the mistake of using old succesful themes.
I hope they will live enough to release another ten albums, at least!
Absolutely brilliant album! I really lost faith with U2 for years and this album is U2 being U2. Soaring chorus', chiming guitars and fantastic melodies from Bono! Screw the critics, pump this album full blast! Volcano should do the job in making you feel good to be alive!
This album is a coming of age for U2, the best thing they have done since All That You Can't Leave Behind. It has catchy tunes, great guitar riffs, and Bono's voice seems to get better with age. Just like Achtung Baby bought a new life and the start of a new era for U2 in the 90's. So does Songs of Innocence, a new lease of life under a new manager and in a new country. I love this album to bits and I put it on an even par with Joshua Tree, Achtung Baby and All That You Can't Leave Behind.
