If U2 hadn't used the title already, "A Sort of Homecoming" might have suited this, their 10th studio album. All That You Can't Leave Behind sounds, at various points, like any or all of U2's previous albums, as if the band is sending postcards back from a protracted ramble through previously conquered territories. The euphoric opening track, "Beautiful Day," reintroduces Edge's signature delay-laden guitar, which has been pretty much absent since The Unforgettable Fire. Elsewhere, the gospel stylings of Rattle and Hum resurface on "Stuck in a Moment," and the deranged, Prodigy-influenced dance textures that characterized 1997's Pop crop up on "Elevation." None of which suggest that this commendably restless bunch is running out of ideas. Having spent the '90s making three of the most bizarre and adventurous albums ever delivered by a stadium-rock band (the consecutive masterpieces Achtung Baby, Zooropa, and Pop), it's as if they're now trying to figure out what is the one particular thing they've always done best. Based on the evidence presented here, their forte remains a facility for making the epic statement alongside Bono's increasing lyrical intimacy: "Walk On" and "Peace on Earth" are two of the best things he's ever written or sung. All That You Can't Leave Behind confirms that U2's laurels are still making them itch. --Andrew Mueller

When U2 first emerged, they were hailed as the rock voice of a generation. Now, two decades later, they are providing the soundtrack to the lives of those original fans' children - truly making music for a new generation. "All That You Can't Leave Behind" is what introduced the Irish rockers to Generation X, and it's as incredible as the band's past work.
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.

This is one of the most overrated U2 albums ever. It did not deserve to win so many grammys and I'm glad it did not win the grammy for best album of the year. However, it is not one of the worst; it is good compared to the rest of the junk on the pop charts. ATYCLB is a safe U2 album, so safe that it's nearly sunk down to the level of adult contemporary and adult alternative hits, pleasant and uninteresting filler.
Bono's voice is horrific, a pain to the ear, especially on such tracks as In A Little While and Elevation. His lyrics are uninspiring, mostly reduced to simple maxims, such as "Believe in yourself!" and "Everything will be all right," which is apparent on Stuck In A Moment and Walk On. Bono realizes that life isn't that easy on better, previous U2 songs that urge people to find their own solutions and leave the door open for interpretation. Of course, complexity doesn't sell nowadays in pop music and that's why U2 has to feed mainstream listeners the answers to common problems. Also, the poor guitarist's talent is hardly visible. Wild Honey doesn't allow for him to do anything earth-shattering. Grace is possibly one of the dullest U2 tunes in all of the band's history.
Fortunately, Kite, though relatively mellow, is the exception to the rule, one of the only songs on ATYCLB that matches the previous high quality work of U2. A song about immortality and life, it is emotional and a soaring anthem. If the next U2 album takes its cues from this song, I will be one happy U2 fan.

Ok. So I didn't really start listing to much u2 until the "Pop" album. Their most artsy, darkest, and least liked album. I loved that album and have become a huge fan of U2 since then. Now, onto the album review. Don't get me wrong, I've heard better versions of some of the songs on here (e.g. the single version or live version of Walk On, or the live version of Elevation), but overall this is another masterpiece.
Anyone saying that u2 is aging or "losing it" is probably sitting around wishing for the Joshua Tree days to come back. Nothing wrong with that, I mean, the Joshua Tree is incredible. But really, there is really nothing to criticize here. There are always multiple versions of u2 songs (from every album), and occasionally non-album versions are slightly better than album versions. Basically though, every song on this album is great.
ATYCLB kinda goes in 3 cycles to me... the first 4 songs kinda kick the album off in full gear, very upbeat for the most part (Beautiful Day, Elevation, Stuck in a moment, Walk On). "Stuck in a Moment" being the mellowest of the four. The next few songs are great as well, but more mellow and acoustic-y (Kite, Wild Honey, and In A Little While). Then, "New York" spices things back up a bit and the last few songs (Grace, Peace on Earth, and When I Look At The World) kinda settle into some sort of religious feeling that Bono often conveys in his lyrics. Personally, I like the first four and last four songs of the album the best, but most of my friends who are more pop-oriented like the middle few. hm.
Great album. Great tour. Probably the best album that came out in 2000. 5 stars easy. Older u2 fans may not like it as much as some of their prior work, but honestly, this album is just as strong as anything they've ever done. Don't get stuck in a rut. Give this album a chance, and u2 will again prove themselves the greatest band on Earth.
