I was very excited while standing on the cold street in front of a CD store on midnight, 22 november. New U2 album is something worth waiting at that conditions, especially if you can get a Box Set (last one!) at special price.
What's in there? Fist of all, a CD. It is great, you've probably heard about it. I've posted my review on CD's page, I think it is one of the U2's best.
But what about the rest of the package? If you are U2 fan, you would like to have it. If not, then it is not a big deal. Booklet is something only a fan will love, others might consider it boring. But it is interesting, and I recommend it to everyone. Try to read it, at least the Declaration of Human Rights, which is "stamped" with band members palms. Nice.
DVD is better part of a package. It contains small documentary about making some of the songs, plus several versions of three songs (Vertigo, Crumbs, Sometimes), and it shows that U2 with only voice and a guitar can still record a hit song which sounds better than many bands with several performers!
In my opinion, it is better to buy CD+DVD version, especially because it is packed in standard CD case. Booklet is something you will hardly place in your CD rack.
But if you are a trully U2 fan, this Box Set is something you should consider.

Although I really rate the Achtung Baby era, All that you cant leave behind was a sign that U2 had rediscovered what made them great. This album has confirmed it. After hearing the hard rocking Vertigo single I was expecting a heavier, distorted new album in the flavour of tracks like The Fly. So when I heard HTDAAB I was at first disappointed, but if your expectations were the same as mine please stick with it, after a couple of listens you realise although it is a quiet and simple album like the early era the songs are very strong. Best track has to be Sometimes you cant make it on your own, Bono's emotions grab you through his voice maxing out on the chorus. That song will be unbelievable live, having just seen them perform it on Jonathon Ross' show.

As a matter of fact, I think this is U2's best ever collective effort! SHOCKED??? Well, to be quite honest, it took me at least 3 to 4 times to get used to this latest release, especially with the opener "Vertigo" which is really my least favourite. This is U2 back to form (credit to Steve Lillywhite's presence?) an album which could have easily followed "War". Let's face it - every album will have your lease favourite tunes - be honest: "Unforgetable Fire" was brilliant, but do you really recall all the tunes following "Bad" ?? Or what about "Joshua Tree" ??? Almost the first half of it was made up of the excellent single releases. The rest?? And "Zooropa" or "Pop"??? HALT!!!! I guarantee you will keep on humming to ALL the tracks on "...Atomic Bomb" for years to come! All tracks - and Bono's voice - really stand out, and this is no mean feat by a band which has been around for so long! In particular, "Miracle Drug", "Sometimes", "City Of Blinding Lights", "A Man And A Woman", "Crumbs From Your Table" and "Original Of The Species" (all excellent single release contenders) have the classic U2 homegrown, warm, mellow yet vibrant trademark sound (the Lanois/Eno influence) and an eclectic Edge dominates the scene, along with Larry's and Adam's revitalised natural punch, void of any techno/electronic mishmash from the "Pop" period. If "..Leave Behind" was the turning point, "...Atomic Bomb" is the peak...and what the heck, I will still keep on saying that it's my most favourite U2 album to date!!! Live with that!!!
As for this special edition, the DVD is really a collector's affair - it's interesting with regards to the making of "..Atomic Bomb" but if you ain't particularly in U2, don't bother spending the extra cash. As for the book, I would have preferred seeing something more readable and concise than a load of colorful scriblings and excerpts. But what the heck, that's U2 4U - Love 'em or hate 'em!!!

The biggest rock band in the world's 11th official studio album kicks off with the gilt-edged riff of lead off single 'Vertigo'-a call to arms if ever there was one from The edge.Indeed,much of this follow up to 2000's far gentler 'All that you can't leave behind' relies on David Evan's crazy guitar playing- witness the slide and distortion which set the backdrop to 'city of blinding lights' or the Stones-esque mantra of the excellent'All because of you'.
This then,is U2 back at their most expansive and best,although reports that the album is 12 all out heavy rock tunes are inaccurate-some of the bands most heartfelt and provoking work in years has been included here.'Sometimes you cant make it on your own' is a follow up of sorts to 'stuck in a moment..' in that it refers in part to Bono's father who passed away almost two years ago.There is also the brilliant 'Original of the species'-a fantastic melody and chorus will surely make this a future hit single.
New ground is also explored here with the UK and Ireland bonus track 'Fast cars'-a house style tune which sees U2 change their style of playing around to a more world music style audience.Despite the political correctness of the album title and songs such as 'Love and peace..or else',this is actually a personal album that is one minute bombastic with electric guitar solos,the next as quiet as the proverbial whisper of an acoustic strumming away softly.
The bonus dvd footage is amongst the best seen to date in an album,a superb 42-minute documentary summarising the impact of the production,as well as 2 videos for Vertigo and brisk live airings of other album tracks.Well worth the money for any self-respecting U2 fan-cant wait for the next tour!
