Is the line in MOS really "Vision of Invisibility"? I guess that kinda fits with the theme of surrender. But I thought it was "Vision over Visibility," which is actually a repeat of the title to one of Bono's paintings he did in the 90's. Always loved that title.

I just saw that, U2.com with scans of reviews, the day the mags are out! Wow, not only is this new site looking better, but they seem to be really on top of things so far Even faster than Interference

The good thing is I really agree with these reviews and they reflect my own feelings about the album. They seem to have taken the time to really listen to it carefully before writing too.

It's quite interesting that all of the seemingly "major" reviews from the bigger magazines etc seem to be highly positive.

Has this been the case with past U2 albums? and is it also generally the case for other bands?

AdelaideNOW rated it 3 stars out of ??? stars (with track-by-track review).

AdelaideNow... Hear U2's new album - No Line on the Horizon

Not a thorough review, mind you.

I love it how major magazines are raving about the album and they give it mostly 4 or 5 stars, but they all see the best bits of album in different areas.
Some prefer Magnificent and UC, while for UNcut they are the weakest tracks...It seems that U2 really hit the right note and that everyone will find something to love about the album

5* by Q Mag "U2 Greatest Album"

Just picked up the latest Q mag and it has a double page spread review and it has given it a very rare 5* saying this could be U2 greatest ever album!

No Line on the Horizon 2 : The rockiest moment you will hear brings back the funky groove for the album’s closer.

Isn't Cedars of Lebanon closing ?

This is already been discussed in the review thread, and more importantly there is a link to U2.com which has a scan of the review (along with the Uncut and Mojo ones ) Just go to the U2.com news page.

Here is the Arizona Republic's review, posted for no other reason than completeness.

I have no doubts that by the time all the reviews are in, every song will be called either a classic or a dud.

AZ Central (3 1/2 out of 5)

"No Line on the Horizon" isn't a landmark album like "The Joshua Tree" and "Achtung Baby," but repeated listening reveals it as a satisfying step in U2's ambitious musical journey.
