||Creme de la Creme|
Before their huge commercial success with "The Joshua Tree", U2's non-commercial art reached a zenith with "The Unforgettable Fire". This is an elusive, amorphous album, difficult to describe, full of eerie suggestion. The first U2 record I ever heard was "Pride (In The Name Of Love)", and I instantly loved it, but I soon realized that it paled in comparison to the dramatic statement of the title cut, or the gut-wrenching "Bad". What can I say? The CD is breathtaking.

||One of my all time favorite CD's|
Pride in the name of love is one of my all time favorite rock songs, you can't go wrong dancing to a song about Martin Luther King and Jesus rocking as tunefully hard as Zepellin. All the other songs are incredible sonic landscapes of beauty and passion, the lyrics are equally smart and moving about spirituality, political dangers and human frailty. The Edge really exploits the G and D notes on the guitar in a terrific style of beauty from harmonics to every fret he can find them with incredible atmospheric backing from Eno. These guys were at their artistic peak and truly inspired, no wonder they became gigantic stars.

even though I am an absoloute huge D.M. fan I submitt and realize that U-2 are thee gods and I laugh at anyone to attempt to try to come to half the genius of this opus!!

||A MARVELOUS RECORDING|
Quite different from their earlier albums, "The Unforgettable Fire" explored new sonic and lyrical territory. Very atmospheric and even mesmerizing in places. Stand out tunes include the hit "Pride" as well as the title track and "A Sort Of Homecoming". Not your traditional hook oriented pop tune songwriting, but something much more,and much more memorable. Possibly U2's best.
