The album is out. Something disappointed.

I would stretch to say this is their best album since Achtung Baby. I think it's that good. Wow.

It's not a bad album, of course not. But something is missing, there are things that I like a lot, 3 or 4 songs that sound very refreshing, and others very well written, but ... it lacks more movement, maybe a couple of rock songs or something more exciting .

In any case, I've only heard it a couple of times, so this album may grow over time.

Summer of Love is simple but beautiful.

This sums up how I think as well.

There are lots of ballads, but they don't mean as much, when they're all next to each other and you have no rockers in between. Good albums usually have a balance of both. Songs of Innocence, while not overly impressive on a song-by-song basis, had that balance and thus was more enjoyable to me.

This is their equivalent to The Circle - not necessarily bad, but is essentially modern U2 by numbers, unwilling to take any risks or "let their hair down".

I have read that U2 will finish their career with Songs of Ascent. The last record.


U2 close off their career with Songs of Ascent. The last song on that album has some lyrics reflecting Out of Control, their very first release. U2 come full circle. The album does have a bit of ‘Swan Song’ in it.

A new version of Mercy would be in the works, and The Edge says he’s already “working on some new ideas and compositions”


And even more, it could become a double album. SOA could see the light in 2020, its forty anniversary.
