Released:
Label: U2 /Island Catalog
With help from Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois, U2 created an album that, in losing the post-punk guitar, gained instead a gentle, epic sound that is both warm and completely emotional. Despite some lyrical pretensions, this is a stunning, beautiful record. By adding this new, dreamy approach to the more direct, anthemic sound of War, U2 would come up with 1987's Joshua Tree. The bonus disc houses the Wide Awake in America EP, which has their transcendent concert reading of "Bad," as well as numerous B-sides, alternate takes and remixes.
