I couln't believe this had a review saying that this album is tenth behind pop on this website! I challenge anybody to find a professional review giving this a bad review. this musically is one of the best albums done by U2. Bono said that he wanted an album that was musically like The Beatles and that is what he done. When I bought this album I liturately listened to no other album for months. it also changed me into unconditional fan of U2 (unconditional fan bare pop and October), where I used to say I didn't wanna choose one band to stay behind because it would leave me blinkered. Music is absolutelt brilliant because they don't set out to wow you and keep it traditional U2.

Bono does it different here becuse if you listen to any good U2 album he chooses to be poetic while here he chooses to be real ife and look at the world and tell it how it is. This is why I understand how he familiarises the album with Beatles' works of art. As always Bono's voice oozes pure emotion and I can appriciate all the lyrics because I can empathise with it as can other people because I've loved, lost, felt sad and then been spiritually fulfilled with everything around me.

Rolling Stones Mag said that this is their third masterpiece after The Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby hard to argue with song. This is right up there with The Beatles work with great songs like Kite, when I look at this world not to mention my favourite stuck in the momoment. By the way the person who thinks this is a bad album this is only second to the Joshua Tree!
