I cannot believe they've just defied history and released such a brilliant album in their forties. Whoever thought bands faded with age?

I was so afraid that this wasn't going to live up to the hype that Bono's been giving it for months. I'm glad I was proved wrong.

Seriously, U2 has once again fucked up the mainstream!

This album is such a powerful polemic against the notion that they had ran out of things to say.

After this album, U2 will be recognised as an act greater than or equal to The Beatles.

yeah, and it's not even "punk rock on venus" and thank God for that.
if he came out and said "it;s our best record since achtung baby" I would've been like "no way", but it's absolutely true.

I certainly did not feel this way after atyclb or pop, as great as those were.

OK... but U2 carried the torch into the 80's... the 90's and the 00's!

Ok, all the comments you lot are making are getting me excited for the new album...I do wonder though, if it really is this good, where do U2 go from here? Its hard to make back-to-back classic albums..

But still, you know, I do have a point! They've said before they'd rather go out on a high than become a pale shadow of themselves...so unless they have another classic set of songs kicking about then they might be tempted to quit!

well you know their time is coming. we've got to be realistic. i am expecting them to finish out the decade, but then again if this album explodes they may well put an end to the u2 phenomenon early, and i wouldn't blame them one bit. they deserve to go out on top.

Eh. U2 were better than the Beatles when they released U2:3. I can't think of a single Beatles song I actually like. The only time I enjoy Beatles songs is when U2 cover them.

It's all subjective, folks.
