No Line On the Horizon

U2 has released their latest album, No Line On the Horizon, today. I'm no music critic and won't try to be one just because I host a blog. As a fan, though, I will say that I'm not floored by the music from the get-go as I have been with previous releases.

But I am looking forward to reading the lyrics more carefully. A big reason I am a U2 fan is because their songs don't just "mean something" but they mean something that touches on the universal, the pertinent, and the existential whereas so many songs that flood the airwaves and zoom through the internet possess a meaning that is inconsequential or little.

So, I'm gonna need a bit more time of letting the music and lyrics soak in.
