Billboard October Review

Yet another British band working on the outer fringes of rock. With a deep, rich production U2 makes music which is hypnotic in its swirling images and textures. Though the quartet is often experiment in approach, each of the 11 tracks maintains a certain accessibility much as Pink Floyd does. The use of what sounds like a xylophone or vibes throughout is a different touch for a rock act. As usual, Lillywhite gets a fiery, percussive sound which gives the LP a kick from beginning to end. Best cuts: "I Will Follow," "An Cat Dubh," "Another Time, Another Place," "Out Of Control," "Twilight."
