Shuffling out for more work-related fun this morning, so it’s a quick one. I picked up U2’s No Line On The Horizon with some trepidation–the first single, “Get On Your Boots,” is mind-numbingly awful, especially when compared to the stellar debut singles–“Beautiful Day” and “Vertigo”–from their last two albums (think R.E.M. launching New Adventures in Hi-Fi with the wretched “E-Bow the Letter”). I’m happy to report, however, that the rest of the disc is quite good. Nothing to match the bombast of All That You Can’t Leave Behind–the band’s finest moment, as far as I’m concerned–but it doesn’t sink to the levels of Pop, which I’d feared after hearing “Boots.” The title track, “Unknown Caller,” and “I’ll Go Crazy If I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight” are the standouts. If you’ve heard it, give me your thoughts in the comments. Or feel free to tip us off to any insider info on U2’s alleged guerrilla gig in Boston next week. Tickets wouldn’t suck either, Jackson.
