What can I say? Desparate for the release date, and being in New Zealand at the time, I was waiting to get my hands on the next U2 album. Then, there it was!! AWESOME!!!! I think U2 have realised what they're best at, pleasing their huge following of fans, but at the same time, music fans in general. A difficult collaberation!! The album has gone back to the days of "Unforgettable Fire", "The Joshua Tree" and even " Rattle and Hum". I will have to go and see them for the fifth time now, and I know, as ever, I won't be disappointed!!! "Peace on Earth" lyrics are just plain haunting. The melody is like silk. "Wild honey" is a quirky little number and could be enjoyed by many varieties of music fans! "Kite" is simply great! Ofcourse, "Beautiful day" and "Stuck in a moment.." speak for themselves. In fact, the only track that I think is not up to their usual standard is "New York". It's good, but not that good!!! If you are a fan, you already have it!! If you're not, go get it. You may be pleasantly surprised!!
