Let me just say this: No Line On The Horizon is not the best record they've ever done, but it is nowhere near their worst (if they even have a bad record). For the fans that have followed faithfully from whenever, there is much to listen to. The casual fan, however, might get lost and wonder where tracks like "Vertigo" and "Elevation" ended up. I'm glad they've gone the experimental route, involving Eno and Lanois in the writing of many of the songs. The Edge is doing what he loves to do by crafting melodies and guitar hooks that get stretched out over aural landscapes as only Eno knows how. Bono's vocals are showing a little wear, but he wears them well on this record. His lyrics on the other hand, might be the weakest thing about the record, but not by much. He's challenged himself to write in the third person, creating characters that he can't inhabit - a Moroccan-French traffic cop; a soldier in Afghanistan; a war-correspondent. Bono as The Fly, Mirrorball Man, and MacPhisto wasn't a stretch; these are characters he was, is, and will be for some time. These guys are extensions of Bono on stage. By not writing from his point of view he may have shown his limitations. That said, this is sonically an ambitious record and worthy of most (but maybe not all) of the praise from the press.

Standout tracks: "No Line on the Horizon", "Magnificent", "Moment of Surrender", "Fez - Being Born", and "Breathe".

This is an album that has taken many years to write and it shows.

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.

Sorry all you U2 fans I know you don't like hearing negative things about your group but this record is a dud. When Actung Baby came out i hated it. In fact I sold it. When I gave it a shot a couple of months later I ended up loving it. In fact it became one of my all-time fav. records. So because of that I gave this album time to grow on me. Well it didn't. The year U2 won their Grammy for All That You Can't Leave Behind Bono said it " was time for U2 to get back to being the biggest band in the world" and I think it's that mentality that is killing this group. After Pop kind of flopped U2 have been making safe records. Were with Pop they tried something new that didn't work that well. I liked Pop but since then I feel each record has been worse then the one before it. U2 has turned into their own cover band. Anyone that saw the 360 Tour has to admit that the crowd really died down during the new songs. I just think U2 is so afraid they might not stay the biggest band in the world that they will not try anything new.
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?

I got this item because I'm a huge fan of U2 and I have pretty much everything they ever did (CD, BOOK, DVD..). This limited box set is amazing if your the type that keeps everything sealed, but if you use it like I do, its not worth it. The CD is the same as any other (content wise), the movie too, the hard cover book is only pictures (most of them U2.com members have already seen them) and the poster is nice but small and is folded so not too nice to put up. Basically i wish I had only got the regular CD and saved 70$.
