"The opening bars may sound like others but there's no mistaking Bono's soaring entry - this band already know enough to be different from the pack. They're committed and ready to take a chance, so Another Day is champing, bright and blowing and overflowing with harmonic strength. There's a lot of love on this record - repay it."
Dermot Stokes in Hot Press, Feb 29, 1980
"I remember getting Edge an echo unit and saying, Use this, because this will get us to another place. This will get us outside of the concrete - into the abstract. I just knew that the echo unit would do that. Atmospheres - we were very interested in atmospheric music. Punk started to look incredibly limited. It seemed so...rigid, not just musically, but it started to have a rulebook and codes. And then I remember Joy Division came along, and I really related to that, because of the moods and atmosphere. And David Bowie's "Low" - that was very interesting. That's where we were. So we started with that thing."
