Released: 30th October 2000.
This album doesn't fit in with all the rest of today's releases. After the experimentation phase that was their last big release, "Pop," U2 are back playing real music.
And boy are they good at it. It took a long time to get used to the idea of this album, but not because it's not catchy. U2 have always created good melodies. The thing is, they're playing like they played 20 years ago. It's not what you'd expect, which , of course, is a good thing.
Starting off with the No. 1, "Beautiful day," the album continues to deliver quality music track after track. Personal favourites include "Walk On" and "When I Look At The World." Honestly, there is no bad song on this album.
You won't find that U2 are breaking new ground, but then again, should they be after having created a style that just can't go wrong? Just hit "play" and enjoy!
