A beautiful and reflective album- Classic U2,
This review is from: All That You Can't Leave Behind (Audio CD)
Do not listen to the other reviews- this is a great album. It is full of poignant and beautifully crafted melodies, and does much to demonstrate Bono's ability as a great lyricist.
Each song on this album could have been released as a single- Beautiful Day captures the essence of U2 in the 80's, yet retains a futuristic sound. Walk On and Elevation are both great rock songs, but the real stand out tracks for me are New York; pumping full on modern rock at its best; and the beautiful ballads Kite and The Ground Beneath Her Feet.
This may not be the best of U2, Achtung Baby and Joshua Tree are their more defining moments- but this is certainly an album which will be remembered as a classic. Do not hesitate in purchasing it.
