I miss a strong concept on this record. It is good but could be better!

To me this is a very meh album, this is my typical response to most of their post Achtung baby output. To me the band has become a caricature of themselves. it always seems like they are trying to be U2 instead of just making music.

When I first heard "Vertigo", I was encouraged because perhaps U2 finally came out with a record worthy of their legacy. Unfortunately, that turned out not to be the case. It drops off dramatically after the first track.

How to make a crap album. More derivative, uninspiring noise from the neanderthals of rock.

First 6 songs are fantastic... and then it falls flat. First U2 album I was disappointed with in their 25 year career.

How to dismantle an atomic bomb, is in my opinion, U2's best album since, acthung baby. Most U2 albums start of well then tend to fizzle out towards the end, HTDAAB, is one of the band's most consistent LP's. Kicking off with the rocking, vertigo, probably the group's most breathless start to an album. Sometimes you can't make it on your own, Bono's song to his father, is possibly the most beautiful and moving song U2 have ever made, it's brilliant. Other highlights are the rock of, all because of you, the majestic, city of blinding lights, and the superb, original of the species. It's all good here from, miracle drug, and, love and peace or else, to, Yahweh, and, a man and a woman. Excellent album.

Vertigo and City of Blinding Lights are really good

Maybe Original of the Species

That's it.

Replace U2 name with generic rock band and this is quickly forgotten as uncreative unoriginal mid tempo rock.

The U2 name is the only thing carrying this

I know many hardcore U2 fans that don't like this album but I do. I am not a true "diehard" but have their complete discography & do love the band. This is less experiential more safe popppy / ballads, but it works. A- MEZ
