It's like the Stone Roses with more sonic experimentation, perfect.

I'm generally not a big U2 fan, but this is a really good album. Definitely hear the Americana influence over this album. The first three songs are among U2's best.

"The Joshua Tree" è una spanna sopra qualsiasi altro lavoro degli U2, almeno musicalmente, e pazienza se "il fuoco indimenticabile" qua si è in parte affievolito in virtù di una raggiunta maturità.

Its a good album, and i guess it sounded spectacular in the 80s when it came out. But listening to it today, it just sounds dated.

Good. Very poppy! Bullet the Blue Sky is easily my favourite. War is a much better album.

I hear the instruments and Bono's singing and they sound great. I definitely see Paris, Texas when I hear some of these songs.

Mostly brilliant. Almost impossible to sustain the momentum of side one, but side two tries awfully hard.

Absolute classic. Nearly all the songs hear are great and remind me of warm summer mornings. These songs invigorate me and excite me. Timeless.

I listen this album full in The Joshua Tree Tour 2017. One of the best days of my life. Just perfect
