Happy Birthday Joshua Tree!!!

U2's best known album was released 25 years ago today.

Can you imagine a U2 concert without Where the Streets have no Name???

Me neither.

Add With or Without You, Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, Bullet the Blue Sky, Running to Stand Still, and In God's Country (and apologies for not mentioning the others by name), and you have an album that, in it's decade, can only be rivaled by Michael Jackson's Thriller. 

The Joshua Tree remains one of the great albums of all time, with it's vivid and compelling lyrics as well as The Edge's soaring guitars and Bono's unmistakable voice.

Happy Birthday:  the gift is ours.
