They need to live on the streets again for awhile.
With a lead voice as unmistakable as Bono's, deeply touching lyrics, and elegantly-crafted songs, this album is easily one of U2's best. Sure, it doesn't have the impact of "The Joshua Tree" or "Achtung Baby", but it is far from mediocre. Continuing in the styles that they have made so famous in the past, U2 has once again raised the bar on how great rock albums can be.
It's hard to describe everything on this incredible work, but I'll give you the highlights:
'Beautiful Day': The perfect opening to the album, 'Beautiful Day' is an anthem-laced track about embracing life with all its difficulties. An ideal song to lift your spirits.
'Stuck in a Moment...': Though grossly over-played as a tribute song in the wake of the September 11 attacks, 'Stuck in a Moment...' is a wonderful piece when taken in context. A bit lighter and poppier than the rest of the album, it is nevertheless great.
'Peace on Earth': Perhaps the sequel to the rocky 'Sunday Bloody Sunday', this track is a pleading look at needless violence in the world, examining its roots and futility.
'Walk On': Of all the U2 songs I've heard, this is probably my favorite. Easily one of the best songs the band has ever come out with, it is truly in the spirit of great hits such as 'Pride', 'One', and 'Where the Streets Have No Name'. A great message and touching melody - all elements that have made U2 great.Read more ›
