When U2 had put out their third album, the excellent "War" in 1983, they were already gunning for something new. Parting ways with producer Steve Lillywhite who collaborated with them on their first three studio albums, they tried and nearly lost the opportunity to snag producer Brian Eno, of Roxy Music fame, until Bono talked him into going out to Dublin. Eno showed up with his sound engineer, Daniel Lanois, and was going to bow out of the whole deal. Something about ambient sound recording caught his interest, and the result is my personal statement of sacrilege to any U2 fan: this is the best album U2 has ever made. Yeah, yeah, I know about "Joshua Tree" with its reflective deliberation, and I know about "Rattle and Hum," which could be the very sound U2 made when it invaded America with an all-out rock assault, but for me, "The Unforgettable Fire" is the masterpiece. Will always be. Listen to the very first song, "A Sort of Homecoming," and you can hear the passion in Bono's voice, the complementing style of Larry Mullen's drum work and the solid spine of The Edge and Adam Clayton just helping drive this song right into your heart. This was U2 announcing to the world that they were put on this Earth to be rock gods...
