All that You Can't Leave Behind is regularly appearing  at the top of media lists of the best music of the past year. Latest with plaudits is Entertainment Weekly, where critic David Browne puts the album at No.2 in the year, commenting:

'Just when the idea of a traditional rock band playing things called songs seemed hopelessly passe and cute; along comes this unexpected bounce back. Leaving his wraparound sunglasses at home, Bono aims to counsel and console, while the Edge and the boys aim for a middle ground between their old gravity and their latter-day sardonicism; all achieve their goals on an album of assured, stick-to-the-ribs rock & roll.

With the band appearing in so many year-end lists, we can't track them all - but maybe you can. If you see something we've missed, e-mail us the review and the link to the site carrying it - and we'll publish it on U2.Com in the coming days.
