Where did U2 go?
It continues to sadden U2's original fan base as this iconic band is in steady decline. As U2 pushes further into the world of "Pop" not "Rock" it would be nice for them to return to their creative past and show this new fan base what a great and better band U2 use to be.
U2 songs of experience

Very Effective Songs always with the Magic touch of love. Amazing album
Even better than the real thing...
Pleasantly surprised. Not blown away like Unforgettable Fire, Achtung, or Atomic Bomb but wasn't expecting another reinvention either. U2 has definitely settled for more Elevation as their signature sound at best and formulaic at worst. They are still a consequential band in their fourth decade but definitely in the legacy phase; i.e. their fan base is not growing but getting older.
Masterful string arrangements by Brandon Collins taking some of these tracks over the top.
Finally! A album worth listening to!
Okay I admit when the album firist came out I gave it a very quick going over. I thought um I don't think I like this very much. Now that I have actually been able to listen to it entirely I can honestly say that it is very impressive. I love it! The boys have put much more effort into this album compared to the last 2 albums,which I hated. My favorite song is The Book Of Your Heart. My boys do still have it! Thank you U2!
Another awesome album from U2
By Rocket XYZ
Another great album by one of the greatest bands of all time. U2 continues to produce albums that speak to the heart and inspire. There is no equal.
Where did Edge go?????? Can someone please find him and bring him back please?
Searing guitars are no more..............sad!
Hoping this will grow on me...
Full disclosure: I've been a huge U2 fan from the beginning and will continue to go see them live and buy their studio offerings. That said, I'm really wondering if they've run out of ideas. There's a few hints of greatness along the way, but not a single song -- not one -- that you could see yourself listening to 2, 5, or 10 years from now. The Edge has some decent moments, some unique playing we haven't heard from him, but the songs just don't hold up. I gave it a dozen complete run-thrus before writing this. Maybe it will take more time to grow on me but I'm disappointed this is so "average."
Not a single memorable song
A huge disappointment, and that’s coming from a long time U2 fan. A number of really insipid songs, and none with the power that I associate with U2.
