The album is full of very densely filled soundscapes and subtle tones very reminicent of 80s U2 for the most part but unlike the last 2 albums this does not sound forced and sounds like a massive step forward.
Track by Track Review:
No Line On The Horizon - Probably the most "Achtung Baby" type track on the record. The album comes out with a cluster of sound that wont be soon forgotton.
Magnificent - My personal favourite on this record has a very "Where The Streets Have No Name" flair to it but in a new way. It is like a new car with a new coat of paint.
Moment Of Surrender - Very Pink Floydish type ballad, again a very dense soundscape and really instead of U2 being a 4 piece band on this one they are a 6 piece band by including Lanios and Eno on the track in a major way. A gospel song if you were going to compaire it to anything it would probably have to be "I Still Havent Found What Im Looking For" but again in a very different mold.
Unknown Caller - A pretty experimental track that is hard to describe sound wise because it does not sound like anything really that U2 have done in the past. One of the real hidden gems of this record. U2 also show that they are Apple computer fans for you tech nerds out there :)
I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight - A very All That You Cant Leave Behind sounding track. A very nicely crafted pop song, fully expect that this one will be a radio single as it is very uplifting in the mold of "Beautiful Day".
Get On Your Boots - An uptempo rocker again with a lot of layering of sound. Most people should have already heard this track and will either love it or hate it.Read more ›
U2 are an amazing band and I thank god I got to grow up with their music but maybe it's time to call it a day. Or get down to trying to make another classic album and stop worrying about how many CD's, Downloads and concert tickets they can sell. You guys are already rich don't you think it's time to get back to making great art and not just another product with the U2 brand Stamped on it?

Great addition to the U2 discography. There are a ton of great tracks. As an avid U2 listener, this has been a frequently listened to disc in my collection.Published 13 months ago by lmg
This disc tends to grow on you, with fewer of the melodic song structures typical of U2, and using technology, but not over-using it... Read morePublished on Oct. 29 2010 by B. Keith
After buying How To Dismantle a Atomic Bomb before this I was very dissappointed. It's average album but better than most out there, but not a classic by a long shot. Read morePublished on Aug. 30 2010 by Ben Nicholson
The packaging is a real treat and quite worth it to me, given that it comes with not only the deluxe version CD, but also a DVD, and hardcover book. Read morePublished on Nov. 18 2009 by Muldfeld

This latest offering by U2 really caught me off guard (that's an understatement). For starters, electronic icon Brian Eno not ONLY had a hand in the production of 'No Line On The... Read morePublished on Sept. 27 2009 by Mike Reed
After being the undisputed main rock act in the world late 80s/early 90s U2 somewhat lost the plot. Pop was a disaster, influenced by the sound of Prodigy (of all groups) and the... Read morePublished on Aug. 13 2009 by gnagfloW
