A step back (in the right direction)

This is a very interesting album.
I was worried that we would have a three-peat with All You Can't Leave and 'Atomic Bomb which I felt were very much doing it by numbers with no real diversity that I had come to expect from U2 with their previous work.
Whilst I thoroughly love the experimentation that was Achtung, Zooropa, Pop, The Passengers and the slightly skewed MDH Band, this album seems to go back beyond those. It is almost as if this is what U2 would have given us had they continued from the Joshua Tree without the aforementioned detour. Eno and Lanois contributions are clearly evident and there are some simularities with Lanois' Shine album in parts and the recurring choruses which you can faintly tell as Brian and Dan, and Eno's synths are everywhere on the album, as mentioned by others the layering is heavy and some vocal levels I thought were a little uneven.
It is a very absorbing album, particularly with Corbijn's footage to accompany the original track order (I watched this first before listening to the amended order on the ablum) being a real treat.
The book whilst very minimal does have some good photography, but it's a token gesture for a limited edition box. Also mine was dented in the corner :( but thats the posties fault, not Play.
An exciting and understated album which I hope leads U2 to further their older works

It's definitely the best U2 album of the 21st century, some great songs and a good range of light and shade. Standout tracks are the beautiful Breathe and the title track.
The package is great too. A really well thought-out design, both of the whole package and the individual elenments within it.
I've yet to see the DVD, but having seen Corbjin's work before I know I'm in for a treat.
