I like it in many ways. Taken individually, a lot of the tracks are impressive. Despite many people appearing to disagree, “Unknown Caller” is a favourite of mine, and similarly, I enjoy the “Subterranean Homesick Blues” feel of “Get On Your Boots”. The title track is instantly accessible, as is “I’ll Go Crazy If I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight” and “Stand Up Comedy” has a killer riff. “Fez” is interesting with its echoes of David Bowie’s “Berlin” phase. “White As Snow” is rather beautiful. “Breathe” has a staccato feel and a nice keyboard/guitar interplay with a good hook chorussy bit. Bono does go on about a “Ju Ju Man” and Chinese stocks and shares and Asian viruses” in a paranoid Paul Simon-esque lyric though. I do like this one, however. “Cedars Of Lebanon” is one if those classic sparse bass and drum backed U2 slow burners to end things off, for the next four years. A very evocative song though.
I have to admit to enjoying it, surprisingly, when giving it my full attention. Although there is a “same-iness” to listening to it in full, the stodgy feel I mentioned earlier, there is a way it just sort of insinuates itself into your consciousness. Dear me, I am beginning to sound like Bono.
I guess my main point is that it is easy to dismiss these later period U2 albums as lazy product from multi-millionaires whose mojo left them long ago. Not so. Give it a chance, as I did, however late. It is a good album. Maybe in a few years, I’ll listen to “Songs Of Innocence”.
U2 at their best, plus a very clean pressing, is all any vinyl-head could ask for.
