4.0 out of 5 stars Achtung Baby! This is not their best album ever! March 6 2009
Format:Audio CD
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".

5.0 out of 5 stars U2 write their 3rd classic album Feb. 23 2009
Format:Audio CD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Collectors edition yes..... but not worth the $$ April 3 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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$.

2.0 out of 5 stars I'll wait for the show . . . March 4 2009
Format:Audio CD
I'll try and be brief. As a big U2 fan I must say that I'm bored stiff with this album. U2 sound tired and uninspired - I'm hoping this opinion improves with future listens. I have seen the band 5 times (twice on ZOOTV, once on POP, once on ATYCLB, and once on VERTIGO) and each time I come away with a better understanding what the band was trying to do with the respective album. For instance, the POP album meant nothing to me until I heard the songs live - I think this is how U2 is really meant to be heard. I love a lot of their music - but they are not really "in their element" as a studio band. True, some of their studio albums are great, but I don't feel like they really perfect the songs until they perform them "live". In my opinion U2 are really made for the stage.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good but not their best March 10 2009
Format:Audio CD
I was extremely excited to get my hands on this CD, as a big fan of U2 I was crossing my fingers...and I have to say that overall, I am pleased. No, this isn't going to go down as "the best U2 album ever" but it's definitely worth more than the 1 star that I've seen some people giving it. This is the kind of album that improves with repeat listenings, I don't think anyone will love it right off the bat unless they think everything U2 ever put out is amazing.

Certain tracks (Moment of Surrender and Magnificent for example) grabbed me from the first note whereas others (Get on your Boots, Stand up Comedy) took a while to grow on me. I still think Atomic Bomb was better and more exciting overall, but this is a great CD nonetheless.
