'Classic', 'Masterstroke', 'Breathtakingly modern', 'Brilliant'. NME thinks the new record is quite good!


'Buy the new U2 album and keep rock's premiere political pest in work,' is the recommendation of the UK's NME, which hits the streets today, with a stunning review by Dan Martin of 'How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb.'

Here's a few choice extracts:

'Bono's genius is that his inner monologue is so huge and heroic that it matches the scale of the music. And, even more so than on 'All That You Can't Leave Behind', the music is enormous.'

'Edge, cast as the Last Guitar Hero; Clayton and Larry, always one of rock's most propulsive rhythm sections, sounding like they're strapped with booster rockets.'

'All Because of You' could be the garage single to make The Hives want to hang up their suits.'

'This is a classic U2 album, but also a breathtakingly modern heavy fucker.'
