U2 is a band that's been around long enough for most people to know whether they love or hate them. For me, I'm a long time fan that recalls vividly first experiencing U2 back in 1983 when the "Live at Red Rocks" video was released. I was in junior high and with "O'Neill" as a last name I was just starting to try and figure out what it meant to be Irish. "Sunday Bloody Sunday" immediately became an anthem and I wanted to delve into the troubles as they call it over in Ireland and learn what I could. Years later, when I stood on that same land in Derry where "Sunday Bloody Sunday" occurred I knew that I owed U2 a lot of gratitude for making me want to know about my roots. Here on "Songs of Innocence" U2 takes us back to their roots.

Since I've been listening to the album for over a month now I've already gone through a few stages of appreciation for it. Right off the bat I thought it was a pretty good record, but I didn't hear any of the raw and edgy tracks that made me fall in love with U2's first few albums. After a few listens I started absorbing the lyrics to the songs more and more and I realized this was one of the most personal records that U2 has ever released.

The album has many personal threads throughout the songs starting with the first track "The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)." The song is about sneaking into a Ramones concert way back before U2 was really a band. Bono has said that particular experience, seeing the Ramones live, and hearing Joey Ramone's vocals showed him that his higher pitched vocals could be punk rock. Without Joey Ramone it is very possible there is never a U2.

September 9th 2014 and Apple's iTunes subscribers (estimated to be about 500 million) found themselves with the new U2 album "Songs Of Innocence" whether they wanted it or not. The backlash was immediate and massive and Apple was forced to allow people uninstall the album.

Over a month later, the album gets a physical release with new cover art, and on the deluxe edition, 3 new songs, and 8 acoustic or alternate versions. Unfortunately, the earlier snafu caused loads of people to condemn the album as crap and U2 as desperate with hardly anyone discussing the music.

Fortunately for fans, the album is rather good, better than "No Line On The Horizon" and at least as good as albums like "All You Can't Leave Behind" or "How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb". While not a dramatic reinvention, this finds them mining their best bits from the past to very good effect. Supposedly their most personal and produced mainly by Danger Mouse (one of my favourite producers), with additional production by Flood, Ryan Tedder, Declan Gaffney, and Paul Epworth, it has synth and light Hip hop flourishes, similar to "Pop" or "Zooropa".

After the ambient lull that was their previous album, we get rockers like the anthemic punk/glam rock-tinged "The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)", the gently jangling "Iris (Hold Me Close)" which builds and builds (about Bono's mother who died when he was 14), the stomping "Volcano" with a chorale bridge (and Bono declaring "You and I are rock & roll" - should please fans of "Beautiful Day"), and "Raised By Wolves" (punctuated by explosive bursts, and lyrics touching on violence in Dublin in the 70s).

"Every Breaking Wave" is a gently pulsing song similar to "With Or Without You" but not as affecting.

I've only been a U2 fan for a few years. Nonetheless, I'm still a huge fan. My exposure to their albums was scattered as the first album I bought from them was "War", which is still one of my all time favorite albums. I've listened to all of their albums since. Almost everyone goes crazy over "Joshua Tree" or "Achtung Baby", but my favorite to this day is still "How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb". I remember going on a U2 binge leading up to the release of their album "No Line On The Horizon". It was a different sound again for the band but still amazing in my opinion. A lot of people were disappointed with that album for some reason. I was disappointed it wasn't as popular as their others. Non-U2 fans don't know a single song from NLOTH unlike how nearly every other U2 album had a song known by virtually everyone like "Beautiful Day", "One", "Vertigo", "Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For",etc. Many were calling it the start to their decline, even though the concert tour for the album ended up being the highest grossing in history. Ever since that albums mixed reaction I have been anticipating U2s next move. I would literally search at least once a month for information regarding a new release from the band. First I found out that Danger Mouse was helping with production which was an interesting thought. Then the songs "Ordinary Love" and "Invisible" were released and hinted at as singles for the new album. Luckily those songs didn't end up in the cut because I personally found them lacking a bit even if they were good. Then finally, in September of 2014 they make history when they released the album for free to Itunes users for a month. Even that got a mixed reaction sadly. Either way it became the most popular album of all time because of the stunt.Read more ›
