Wow! this is totally what I did not expect from a musical soundtrack: Fully formed and well produced (thanks to Steve Lillywhite) 'pop-opera' songs that combine camp pop-art ("A Freak Like Me" - a wonderfully dirty song that could have been released as a Lady Gaga single and "DIY World" - the most theatrical song bono and edge have ever concieved) with the sinister dark comicbook underworld. The edge's song "Sinistereo" sounds macabre and wicked and even uses the lyrics of one of Edgar-Allen Poe's poems to stunning effect. The best melodies on the album "I Just Can't Walk Away" and "Rise Above" are instant classics and very memorable and which convey a super hero vulnerability. On the epic rockness of "Boy Falls From The Sky" we can envisage a parody of Bono's larger than life ego more than ever before as spiderman is portrayed as an anti-hero that is weighed down by the unforgiving world. Here spidey sings "I'll search through trash for a melody in this junkyard of humanity". There are a few brilliant haunting ballads ("If the World Should End" and "Turn Off the Dark") sung by a female vocal that give the album a extra quality (the latter song sounding a little like Clannad). To me this feels like the Seargent Pepper of musical scores. Even though the whole musical was a struggle to get right and took it's time this album was recored very quickly in the end. Well done Bono and The Edge and the whole cast and crew for never giving up with this project. This album is a testament to their hard craft and a great piece of art that can be revisited for generations to come. I hope the musical is a success.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice! 7 July 2011
By JohnSMS
Format:Audio CD
Having read all the negative press this show got I was unsure what to expect from the soundtrack. I saw the performance of 'Rise Above 1' on American Idol and decided it had to be worth a few quid and it sure is! Like them or hate them, Bono and the Edge can never be counted out. Their ability to produce records is uncanny. There are no number 1 tracks on here but there is a set of songs that make you feel as if you are right there in the audience at the Broadway show. From the opening instrumental right through to the finish you can hear the storyline in the music. The variety is fantastic, there are punchy rock songs such as 'Boy Falls From The Sky', 'Rise Above 1', 'DIY World' and 'Picture This'. There is 'A Freak Like Me Needs Company' and 'Pull the Trigger', which are totally unlike anything Bono and the Edge have done before. And of course there are some touching ballads which follow the love story part of the musical. All in all, a great album for someone who is willing to be open minded and appreciate what Bono and the Edge are trying to do here, i.e. tell a story; not get to no.1.

Some solid tunes and an interesting listen with subtle complexities amongst the bog standard fare- worth a fiver though! Good buy

The cd as quickly delivered. I am going to see the show later in the year, and we'd to hear the songs before seeing the show. The music is fine
