Just a reality check here... these guys were in their early 20's when this album was recorded and while some may comment on what and who Bono is nowadays you must remember he was a very young man then in the 1980's and it is incredible to me how profound much of their early music was.

Just got served this by PSD. No complaints here.

If you don't like it, walk on by, walk on through.

Ha - I love when U2 comes on so I can quickly peek at the comments hating the band. Haters gonna hate. Largely agree that this was their peak and it was more or less downhill after this (yes, including Joshua and Achtung, which were also solid albums). The Unforgettable Fire is my absolute favorite U2 song.

 
I disagree. Though this might be my favorite U2 song, I don't think this album (a great one,yes) is their peak. For me, that would be Achtung. Most people I know see the Joshua Tree as the peak.

It's amazing how a single song can instantly transport you back in time, to a place where you first heard that particular song and it touched your heart/mind/soul.  This song has done that for me today.  Thank you, RP!

We are so lucky to have radio as good as this and Tidal for streaming. Both well worth supporting. 

 
Here Here, to my like minded fellow from across the pond.  I live in the great american southwest, and for me, this band embodies much of the reverence that some of the ancient places on this planet exude.  I like U2, not everybody does, that is just how it is.

One of U2's best songs. That and Bullet and Blue Sky. They were best earlier on though.

I've tried for 30+ years to understand the appeal of these guys, but I just don't get it. Coincidentally, I happened to watch Bruno last night and noticed that Bono even managed to be boring in a song about anal bleaching! This song is better than average for U2, at least. 

 
Wait - is that what the Unforgettable Fire is about? {#Eek}

The opinion is the same as mine, and I'm no hipster. It's just the right call about this period. Unforgettable Fire was amazing, and then they started losing their drive - except to be the new Beatles, via coasting on their name. Mistake.
