U2 "No Line" Update

Listened through the new album about 5 times....

I agree with Scott that the opening track, No Line on the Horizon, might just be my favorite. The opening set, tracks 1-5, is just an impressive set of music. Love Moment of Surrender and Unknown Caller. Truth be told, I know a lot of people don't care for Boots, but I think it really works in terms of the album.

Musically, I thought "interesting" about a number of songs the first time through. The more I listen all the way through, the more I like. The first time, I was just listening. The second time, I was "moving and grooving" even though I was driving my truck (which fortunately continued to stay in its lane.)

There's a ton of interesting lyrics to digest, and I'm not ready to do so yet.

I imagine a STRONG live performance...quite different from the last two tours. It's just that type of album. (Don't ask me to explain it any more than that right now...)


Very pleased!!!

It's been a while since I've bought a U2 cd. For years they were my favorite--gotta check 'em out again. Funny the things that come second when so many things come first.
