Second Only to Unforgettable Fire,
This review is from: All That You Can't Leave Behind (Audio CD)
I wouldn't call myself a huge U2 fan, but I do like them. Unforgettable Fire is easily my favourite U2 album but this runs it a close second. This album just transports me back to a particular year in my life when everything was turned upside down and my only escape from some particular troubles seemed to be when I was out in the car, where I would endlessly play either this or Oasis' Standing on The Shoulders of Giants'. There are some catchy, iconic songs on here that received a lot of radio airplay at the time. Sky Sports even used to use 'It's A Beautiful Day' as part of its live football covereage every weekend. But for me the stand out track is In A Little While which is just a sumptuous bluesy track that you could easily beleive is the band caught jamming by the sound engineer ... one of my all time favourite U2 tracks.
It sold in massive numbers and for good reason ...love them or not, you have to admit that U2 always manage to come up with some catchy, signature tunes and this album is no exception.
