So I just purchased the new U2 album, and I must say that I am in love with it. This album has a depth of emotion that I haven’t heard in popular music for a long time.
As a way to get my self in the mode for this new album I listened to every u2 album, and I came to a shocking realization. All That You Can’t Leave Behind is really not a great album. Yes it has a lot of great songs, but it lacks a certain unifying quality to all the songs, “New York”, “Peace on Earth” and “Wild Honey” stand out as tracks that are just so different from the rest of the album that it diminishes the flow of listening. They are not bad songs but they just don’t fit.
I am pleased to say that Atomic Bomb does not have that problem, the band really put together a great unified album that tugs at the heart and soul of the listener.
Right of the top I knew this album was going to be great even if Bono can’t count.
Now I can’t wait for the Tour that I am going to make every effort to attend.
