One Love!
Of course its number 1, its a u2 album. Good Album not the masterpiece I was waiting for, Breathe is a classic, so to White as Snow! When r the presales for Ireland????????????

I really love the album, especially "Magnificent" (a must for a single), "Unknown Caller" & "Breath". Already I regard this album as another U2 classic, even "Get On Your Boots" has now grown on me although initially I was disappointed with it,makes sense now to me where placed on the album and I get it! Never loose the faith and can't wait to see them at Wembley in August. Great also going to see them in Regent Street a couple of weeks ago!

Average
With only a few anthems on the album, it's far from their best, they've nicked stuff, and we're not hearing the best from bono's voice. Shame - although better than Pop.

This album is U2phoric!!!
No line on the horizon? No competition on the horizon, more like... this album is great and I still have to take it all in. Moment of Surrender gave me goosebumps on the first listen. Magnificent is the most U2 of songs on the album but is awesome and I'm looking forward to seeing it live... and I love NLOTH (the song)... NLOTH is great too - the boots B-Side. A superbly strong opening to a U2 album (bettered only by JT and Achtung). :o)

NLOTH is Awesome!
I was in the hospital and had recently woken up from a medical induced coma where I was asleep for two weeks. I was in total in the hospital for about a month. As my mind started to clear a bit is when the U2 album was coming out. I was still week and could not move, my hubby downloaded thier album and played it for me set on repeat. My mind still foggy I only heard words like, "Stand Up and take a step, Restart and Re-boot yourself" also many other inspiring words which gave me the strength to begin to move. I am still in the process of recovery and still listen to my beloved group U2 and thier awesome album which will forever be in my heart and have such a strong meaning for me.

Greater Things to Come...
The most innovative album which keeps on growing on you since Achtung Baby. Magnificent is THE song. I have had several experiences of crying uncontrolably and uttering curious but releasing words when hearing that song! There is certainly some spirit to it... Rock on Bono & Co!

Maybe It's Just Me
I love. No. LOVE the album. But, is it just me, or does anyone else hear snippets and sounds from previous works? And I am not talking Edge's guitar tone... Listen to Achtung B'sides, Zooropa and Passengers. Vocal effects, synth sounds... No harm in extracting gold from an existing vein, eh?

A pleasent awakening
Boots got me a bit worried,then i heard the album and it all fell into place. From the perfection of Magnificent to the haunting vocals of White as Snow this album has it all and alot more ,which will come with many hours of enjoyable listening. Its not Actung or JT but NLOTH,a 5 star classic!

It will grow as time goes by.
They did it again. Shot to nr 1 in most countries around the world. The question is whether this album willstand the test of time.No doubt NLOTH is an album that will only grow as time goes by. The young pop-kids might need some time to digest this piece-of-art, however as time goes by NLOTH will turn out to be one of U2's most daring albums.Both musically and lyrically it is exceptionally strong.

BEST ROCK BAND IN THE WORLD
Truly Awesome. "No Line on the Horizon" proves why U2 is at the top of their game, even in this transition album. It's true, every beauty does need to go with an idiot!

It had to be #1
It goes without saying that this album is on another planet! Its not so much #1 in the world as it is out of this world!

awesome!!!
I think that no line on the horizon is a good record, but not the best u2 album ever, but it definetly deserves to be at the top for a long time.

It looks like we will have to do our Tonight Show residency another time - we're one man down. Bono has injured his arm in a cycling spill in Central Park and requires some surgery to repair it. We're sure he'll make a full recovery soon, so we'll be back! Much thanks to Jimmy Fallon and everyone at the show for their understanding.
