Have you purchased U2’s new album “No Line on the Horizon Yet?” If not, I am here to tell you that you will not be disappointed in this flat out masterpiece. At first I was hesitant, even after Rolling Stone magazine rated it 5 stars, which denotes an “instant classic.” However, after a few turns through the whole disc, I am completely hooked and can’t stop listening to it. My prediction on this summer’s hottest song will be “I’ll Go Crazy If I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight”- listen below to their performance on Good Morning America where they played at Fordham University.

I’m telling you right now folks there is not a track on the album that you will pass over and it is really hard to pick a favorite. Die-hard fans will flock to “Magnificent” “and “Stand Up Comedy.”
The track “Fez: Being Born” is the way U2 is suppose to sound in 2009, totally relevant and fresh. “Moment of Surrender” is an epic classic that any band would wish they wrote. Listen to its beauty and you will not want the song to end. I can’t get enough of this song. My personal favorite track on the album is “White as Snow” and in my opinion is pure perfection. “Get on Your Boots”, the first single released, has really grown on me and contrary to the negative reaction to the song, if you really give it a chance- it will not disappoint.
“No Line on the Horizon” has pulled me back to the U2 bandwagon, I was gone for a real long time but I think this is the best album they have ever made. Yes that’s right better than “Joshua Tree” and “Achtung Baby.” So do yourself a favor: run out and get this CD right now!!
