right after the experimental period of "zooropa" (u2 on the moon, according to the edge) that followed the succesfull "achtung baby", U2 owed brian eno a favor. like david byrne with "my life on the valley of ghost", they left the safety of pop to adventure on the eno-dimension, outer space as you are suggested from the painting on the cover. the results couldn t be better, a soundtrack for art films, with the collaborations of luciano pavarotti (out of place on miss sarajevo) and howie B (elvis ate america), that apart from 4 of the films, only exist for the mere reason of musical landscaping. great job by the edge on hipnotic guitar . highly enjoyable, a must for u2 or brian eno fans.
