Biography

U2 formed in 1978 after Larry Mullen pinned a 'musicians wanted' ad to the notice board at Dublin's Temple Mount School. Adam Clayton had discovered rock'n'roll as a thirteen year old, buying his first acoustic guitar and then talking his parents into buying him a bass guitar. 'It just sounded good to me. Deep and fat and satisfying.'

From the beginning, U2 ... Read more in Amazon's U2 Store

Editorial Reviews

Limited edition hardbook boxset includes CD, DVD, poster and 64 page book. 2009 album from arguable the biggest Rock band in the world. Written and recorded in various locations, No Line On The Horizon is the group's 12 studio album and is their first release since the mega-million selling How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb, released in 2004. the album calls on the production talents of long time collaborators Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois with additional production by Steve Lillywhite. 11 tracks including the first single 'Get On Your Boots'.

Customer Reviews

U2's best album since Achtung Baby.
J. P. Morris
These don't sound experimental, they sound pretty similar to songs on the last albums, but just bad ones.
Casey S. Thomas
From first listen it is good but gets better every time.

This review is for the deluxe box set. Since the cd is the same the question is whether you want to pay anywhere from 65 to 95 dollars for the extras. You get 2 posters - 1 a large reproduction of the album cover that to me has gotten boring pretty quickly. The other side of that poster and the other smaller poster show the band standing around looking serious and important as they are prone to do. There is a large sharp-looking high-quality white hardcover book with some nice pictures and an interview with the band. I've read it through once and enjoyed it, and will probably read it once or twice again before my death hopefully many years from now. I guess I bought this set primarily for the dvd by Anton Corbijn, a film that is played over the new U2 songs. Mostly it shows a man riding his motorcycle and walking. The only U2 content is the band playing Magnificent on a staticky cafe television, really too distracting to watch. I want to say that watching this dvd was as exciting as watching paint dry but I think that would be insulting to paint. I don't think I will ever watch it again, even if I live a long long time. All of these things are packed in a big mother of a box (12" x 9" x 2"). I absolutely love the NLOTH cd, but with this box set and with U2 bigger is not always better. Like with their new stadium tour called U2 360 - the band will play from a stage "in the round" so more fans can see the band (and their backsides) than would normally fit in a 60,000 person stadium. As far as the De-luxe edition it currently takes up a large space on my bookshelf, always reminding me that I could have bought the regular cd for $10. UPDATE ONE YEAR LATER 3/20/10: Another thing that bugs me about these "De-Luxe, Limited Edition, Collectors Items" is that they never are. One year later you could pick up a new copy here on amazon for $25, a third of the original price. Any collectors item or high priced deluxe edition mass produced for a major artist will NEVER go up in value.

If you want to nit-pick that this album isn't Joshua Tree or Achtung Baby, and is thus by default a steaming pile of cow manure, go right on ahead and live in your own pool of negativity. No this isn't those albums. Those are masterpieces, pure and simple.

OK, for this album just sit back, put on the head phones and soak it in. Like any U2 album, it plants a seed, sprouts, grows and matures if you listen to it more than a simple fast forward on your ipod like many shortened attention span detractors probably did. I believe it lives in the top 5 of the band's compilations. Sonically, the Edge continues to expand his boundaries. The man has given us a lifetime of musical gifts. How many other musicians can continue to create interesting music after 30 years! Bono continues to spew his classic Bono-isms. The words, poetry, and one-liners that stick in your head and make you think. I find his lyric effort the best since 1991. As usual, Clayton and Mullen Jr keep things tight and round out the experience.

My favorites?
1) Magnificent - might place in their top 10 songs. Made the hair on the back of my neck stand up. Like Streets have No Name did when I first heard it.
2) Being Born - Interesting direction in sound that I hope they explore more in the upcoming sister album.
3) Unknown Caller - Vintage U2 take on things. your personal interpretation necessary
4) I'll Go Crazy - Yeah, its got to be the first song played at the live show
5) Moment of Surrender - Might live long as one of their best. Like "One" did after AB.

I've loved this band since the War days. I can't believe they are still pumping out great music! Thank you U2!

No Line on the Horizon is an inspired and moving work. The record is imbued with the sense of urgency, passion and clarity most reminiscent of U2's 1983 release `War'. When U2 wrote `War', it had been a particularly difficult and violent time in Ireland's history, and U2's response was to tell stories about the personal journey of those caught up in the crossfire created by forces bigger than themselves. This record captures and updates that theme on a global scale, as the first decade of the 21st century has been marked by war, poverty, religious and ethnic division, economic collapse, ominous climate change, lost opportunities and an emerging hope that people can ultimately seize their own destinies, write their own future, and break away from the destructive patterns of the past. No Line on the Horizon is the right record at the right time for U2 and its audience.

Musically, U2 has drawn from its own past to create a new sound. Though not as striking a departure as Achtung Baby was from its predecessors, U2 has eclectically lifted from its own past to create a more varied and less predictable sound. U2 has incorporated more of the ambient/electronica experimentation they did on Pop, Passengers, Zooropa, Achtung Baby and the Million Dollar Hotel, through the keyboards, samples and effects of Brian Eno, Daniel Lanois and The Edge. The role of Eno as primary keyboard player has added a new dimension, complexity and power to the songs. Many of the band's jam sessions are not relegated to the cutting room floor but are incorporated into the tracks, making them longer, less predictable, and an interesting ride.

Scott:

I would much rather actually LIKE the songs before I hear them live. I enjoy hearing a new perspective on the song. But if the songs REQUIRE me to hear them live, that doesnt say much for the album. There are about five songs on No Line that I dislike so much, I doubt a live... Read More

"Moment of Surrender" audio squeak?
This thread is crazy. It's just an "oh." I knew that right away when the original poster replaced "oh" with "<squeak>" and it's obvious from listening to it.

YOUR 20 FAVORITE ALL TIME U2 SONGS
In chronological order:
1. I Will Follow. Despite Bono sounding like he's 12 years-old, the sound was just so distinctive and unique sound for its time.
2. Sunday Bloody Sunday. It just has such an undeniably great riff and great lyrical statement.
3. New Years' Day (sometimes the singles do... Read More

Another hole in "tiny" Boy's logic
I just looked up some of Steven Guy's reviews. An interesting collection to say the least. I only found one for U2. He especially likes to blast Norah Jones and Coldplay. I don't remember the name of the guy I'd consider the biggest troll I've seen on amazon. I found him when I looked up negative... Read More

Calling U2 Bashers: Put Up or Shut Up!
Read the Rolling Stone best of decade list, dude.

Seriously (its your favorite magazine after all).

And stop dressing up like a woman when you go to see U2 and winking at Bono.
1) He is happily married
2) Your Adam's apple gives you away.
