U2 have done it again, 7 Dec 2004
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.
