  • The aftermath

    Oct 9, 2005 by silktempest is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Music
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Revival
    Cons: Time waits for no one

    Summary: You are the salt of the Earth, the wave of the future. You are the vanguard of the Revolution. So, the Revolution! ... What comes next? U2 was on the midst of this existential zeitgeist in early 1990s. Hailed as "THE band of ... read more

  • A Definitive U2 Album

    Jul 21, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: A Great Beginner's Guide to U2
    Cons: More commercial than former ventures

    Summary: U2 is my favorite band of all time, and I must say that this album is one of their greatest overall. I listen to all the tracks on this CD, without having to jump over any track, which spells a solid album. I think U2 did a great job of re-branding ... read more

  • It's A Beautiful Day For Number 100

    Apr 30, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: U2.
    Cons: Bland music at times.

    Summary: All That You Can’t Leave Behind may very well be the album that changed my entire scope of what music I listen to and why. It was 2004, and the hype for How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb was reaching its boiling point. I was 15 and ... read more

  • In the stillness of the evening, when the sun has had its day

    Mar 4, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: U2 swings for the fences and knock several out of the park in the process
    Cons: Sugary production, a fistful of weak numbers, poor sequencing

    Summary: U2 is... Bono - Vocals, guitar (snicker) The Edge - Guitar, vocals, synthesizers, etc. Adam Clayton - Bass Larry Mullen Jr. - Drums Growing old. It's not a subject I'm terribly familiar with on a personal level, but it's something I've ... read more

  • U2: All Grown Up and All That You Can't Leave Behind

    Oct 6, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Some outstanding and classic songs...
    Cons: Toward the end, I lose interest...

    Summary: Nearly thirty years after forming in Dublin, Ireland U2 is still making excellent music. They began as politically charged new wave punk and have morphed into one of the most lauded pop/rock bands of the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s. In thirty more years, ... read more

  • Not Even Close to U2's Strongest Work

    Nov 14, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A few great songs, catchy melodies, good production values
    Cons: Does not reward repeated listens, some of the songs never go anywhere

    Summary: When I first listened to and attempted to review this album, I felt it was very strong, but unlike the other U2 albums, this one just did not stand the test of time. It's probably their most accessible album, and the one that attracted a new fan base ... read more

  • U2 begins a return to what they do best.

    Mar 31, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: U2 presents a reprisal to their earlier works, touching once again on their unique 'Sound'.
    Cons: The flip side is weak, lacking the fire that the first side promises.

    Summary: I was 14 when I first heard a song by the then radical band U2. My mother had just bought their new album, on vinyl no less, and was playing it at deafening volumes in the living room. I was, of course, disgusted. What was this crap? I thought ... read more

  • "are you still growing wild with everything tame around you?"

    Mar 17, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: stuff
    Cons: and nonsense

    Summary: Right down to the title, U2's All That You Can't Leave Behind is one of the most blindingly overt bids for the respect of a lost 'audience' as i've seen in my (admittedly short) tenure as a music writer. Long-time fans packed it in after ... read more

  • What do you see when you look at the world?

    Feb 24, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: One of U2's best records... period.
    Cons: Of course musically it's not Joshua or Achtung.. it's up there though.

    Summary: This album has been with me a while now. Perhaps I should review it already. Going… not gone. The closing chords of Gone still resonate in the air under Boston FleetCenter’s roof when the Edge steps on his ... read more

  • What goes up...must come down.

    May 28, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Strong songwriting brings U2 back on top again.
    Cons: Watch out for that midlifecrisis.

    Summary: The honest way to judge an album is to look at it after a few years... once the newness and in U2's case the overkill airplay have worn off and one can judge wether U2's 10th studio effort is truly a thing not to leave behind. In all honesty, ATYCLB has ... read more

  • U2: All that you can't leave behind

    May 24, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Beautiful lyrics and vocals
    Cons: Sometimes a bit too depressing

    Summary: Around the world, many see U2 as the greatest band of all time. They have released too many albums to keep count of, have been around longer than my mother has been alive. And they have never really gone down. When I first bought this album, I ... read more

  • Don't leave this one behind.

    Mar 17, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: One of U2's many great albums...but this one's different. It's supernaturally great.
    Cons: Minor. Maybe some sequencing could be better, but probably not.

    Summary: The 90s was U2's season of indecision, doubt, and critique on society. It was changing the packaging of the same message for the new decade. But the 90s are over, it's a new millennium, and America is mad at U2 for releasing Pop, so ... read more

  • Grace makes beauty out of ugly things

    Mar 19, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Top-notch songwriting. Bono's best vocals in 15 years. Soulful performances from the band.
    Cons: I wish they hadn't used loops on "In A Little While."

    Summary: Bono, The Edge, Larry Mullen, and Adam Clayton, collectively known as U2, are true survivors. After almost a quarter century of being in the self-proclaimed greatest rock band in the world and numerous best-selling albums and tours, not to mention ... read more

  • U-2 lover rejoice

    Feb 25, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: A lot of the things about U-2 that we've missed since Joshua Tree
    Cons: A few lapses into definite mediocrity

    Summary: They're (mostly) back, folks! The first track, "It's a Beautiful Day" drives along gloriously with great lyrics and is our favorite. Close behind: "Elevation" (very sexy); "Walk On" (dedicated to Aung San Suu Kyi, who is under house arrest in Burma); ... read more

  • U2 is back!

    Jan 9, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great Lyrics, Bono's voice aged to perfection, return to the old style
    Cons: None

    Summary: I have been a die-hard U2 fan for about 10 years now, and I used to hail The Joshua Tree as the best album ever. That was until I bought All That You Can't Leave Behind and popped it into the CD player. I was over come with joy when I realized U2 ... read more

  • U2 Does It Again

    Jan 4, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: U2 returns to straightforward rock and does it well.
    Cons: Second half of the album isn't as consistently strong as the first.

    Summary: In October 2000, rock seemed to be in a slow period. Many of the 90s leading rock bands had either broken up or radically changed direction. The music scene had been overtaken by hordes of teen pop bands and rap-metal frat boys. It was then that those ... read more

  • "U2 Can't leave this record Behind"

    Dec 4, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Beautiful lyrics and sounds that show, but don't tell.
    Cons: Very Simplistic, lacks intensity.

    Summary: I personally like this album. This record is something that you can't leave behind!The sounds are beautiful and are classical U2. The lyrics are very uplifting in a realistic context. It allows you to have hope but yet still question with some ... read more

  • Shoulda' left this one behind-my rant.

    Nov 18, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: its an attempt.
    Cons: albeit a pathetic one.

    Summary: It must be me. I was hoping to wipe the slate clean and forget the 1990's for U2. Sorry fans, I even thought that Achtung Baby was crap. I am a jazz piano player, and I own a decent synthesizer/sampler and sequencer. What U2 did with ... read more

  • U2’s “The World is Great”

    Nov 9, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: a very inspiring album, one of U2's best
    Cons: perhaps one or two tracks I didn't care for

    Summary: U2 has long been my favorite rock group for many reasons. Bonoís vocals are unparalleled, The Edge is one of the greatest guitar players of the modern era, Adam Clayton uses the bass guitar like itís an extension of himself, and Larry Mullen Jr. brings ... read more
