'Their best album since Achtung Baby'

20 Feb 2009


Rolling Stone gives the new record five stars and a glowing review.

'Bono knows he was born with a good weapon for making the right kind of trouble: the clean gleam and rocket's arc of that voice,' writes David Fricke.'"It was one dull morning/I woke the world with bawling," he boasted in Out of Control' written on his 18th birthday and issued on U2's debut Irish EP.

'He is still singing about singing, all over No Line on the Horizon, U2's first album in nearly five years and their best, in its textural exploration and tenacious melodic grip, since Achtung Baby.'
