This is coming at you from what you would call an old school, hardcore fan. I have followed these Fair City chancers around the globe and even lived in their home town for five years...rubbing shoulders with them from time to time whether it be at The Olympia, Patrick Guilbaud's or the late great Lillie's Bordello. So I do consider myself an authority and a keen watcher from afar. A real fan speaks truthfully with realism. Ya gotta see their bad and good. Too many starry eyed, born again christian Yank fans treat them like they do their own flag- with blind patriotism. No band always makes the right move, the best song, the best album. The bombast and the soundbites can wear thin across the years oh Cuban heeled one. Alas, I digress...the album in question.
As the title says- So close...yet so far. This could have been one of the greats. The atmosphere and cover art of No Line set us up for something deep and melancholic. The title track sent the hairs up on the back of my neck and I got very, very excited. Bono has to try just that little bit harder for the upper register these days, but he's still got it. (Please stop when you don't...do not do a Billy Idol or Bon Jovi. Not that they are in your league.) Magnificent is just that, trademark uplifting U2. Some might say, not this again...I say spot on. Moment of Surrender- just as beautiful. What you must understand here is they are setting a mood. A very good one. We are heading for Classic Album territory here. Unknown Caller...yes! Yes! Love the intro...build, build harmonies. Thank-you Eno! My god this is going to be up there with some of their very best...nooooo! The next track marks the demise, the near miss, the big mistake. You just had to try for the single didnt you boys.

Awesome ! on continually in the car ! I'm putting this on the shelf next to Joshua Tree. ...just so it gets the warm cosy feel it deserves!

Poorly received upon release, this one got past me, so I've just picked it up, after having received the new album free, through Apple. (Don't know why everyone's getting their knickers in a twist over that, by the way) Anyway, I've only listened to NLOTH once but I quite liked it and I think it will be a grower....and they're the ones that last!

An admission - I love U2, and always have done. An amazing live band especially. However, here they are maybe trying to be too cute and too experimental (in my view). What's wrong with recording more melodic anthems a la 'Streets' etc? Having read the reviews the interesting thing for me was that almost everyone remarked that 'Magnificent' was one of the stand out tracks on this album. Why is that interesting? Simply because this track (which everyone seems to like) is classic U2 and a guaranteed crowd pleaser for the live shows. So all I would like to know is - why is there not more of this type of track and less of the dreary numbers such as 'White as Snow' & 'Cedars of Lebanon'? Boys, stick to what you do best and stuff the experimentation. I buy your albums cos' I want to hear that inimitable U2 sound, and according to the majority of the reviews everyone else still seems to like that sound as well! Having said that, this album does get better & better with each listen.

Try as I might, I cant find any reason to listen to this again. Its had a few go's with healthy gaps inbetween to deliver some kind of sonic reasoning to my ears but it seems positively devoid of any musical and lyrical substance. I mean, Sexy Boots, and as a single!! Talk about an insult to my intelligence.

Its like they all met at the studio on a set date and crashed out an album. Then handed it to the producer hoping he could make it interesting. Whilst he's given it his best shot, he didn't have much to work with. Bonos lyrics have become too obtuse and try hard for my liking and the edge hasnt really brought any intersting material to the party either on this occasion. Leaving Larry and Adam to apply backbone to what was always destined to be a rather floppy animal.

In my opinion they need to put all the electronic gizmos in to the cupboard for a while and get back to basic songwriting again. And it wouldnt hurt if Bono could share a little soul rather than aim to be controversial or world savior.

I have had the album for two weeks now. I have read all the reviews on Amazon, both UK and USA, and perhaps if I had written this review after a couple of hearings then, well, it would have been a only a 2 star review. I would imagine that the reviewers that had been hasty and given only one or two stars might now be having regrets to write off this album too soon.
It is certainly a grower and I am still playing it constantly. This is best album I have heard in ages, it just gets better and better. Album of the year already? Could well be.
The problem U2 have is that the expectations are so great. How can they live up to this and please everyone? By delivering their most adventurous album since Pop. After about 3-4 hearings it all comes together and you grasp how good this actually is. It really is exciting that a band that has been around so long, can produce a set of songs this good. This is what albums should be like. In todays times we have no patience, we want it all to sound superb on the first hearing. Well, sorry, it does not always happen. If you put in the effort then you will be rewarded with a wonderful album. Even Get On Your Boots starts to make sense as part of a this collection.
I could list my favourites, but believe that this should be heard from start to finish. It is Magnificent!
This an album for adults made by a band who have taken care to produce the best that they can. You cannot ask for much more than that!
Larry was right when he said that this album contained some of the best songs that they had ever written.
Enjoy!
