EAN/UPC: 731452433428Get one thing straight: Techno is merely the fairy dust sprinkled atop another massive, brilliantly conceived slab of dense, drug-like rock & roll from the only band this side of the Smashing Pumpkins who could pull off such a feat. Mainstream audiences are desperate for something fresh yet familiar, and this Warholian treatise on the plasticity of pop culture expertly mixes new sonic colors with the band’s signature art-rock genius. “Discotheque” is an exhilarating opener, “Staring at the Sun” is their answer to relative upstarts Oasis’s hit “Wonderwall,” and “If God Will Send His Angels” has the makings of a crossover anthem. This is U2 in peak unit-shifting form. –Jeff Bateman

How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb by U2

// July 20th, 2013 // 3 Comments » // Music, U2

How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb by U2 is one of my favorite albums of all time.

They got better!

U2 formed in their native Dublin in 1978 and remains intact with its four original band members: Bono, Larry Mullen, Adam Clayton and The Edge. The band has sold more than 120 million records worldwide in an extraordinary career that has firmly established them as one of the world’s greatest rock `n’ roll bands. Along the way, U2 has earned a phenomenal 14 Grammy Awards, seven of which were for their last studio album, 2000’s `All That You Can’t Leave Behind,’ including two consecutive awards for ‘Record of the Year.’ As popular for their legendary live shows as for their groundbreaking albums, U2 innovates and inspires while packing football stadiums and sweaty clubs around the world. What is next for the group that continues to reinvent themselves and push the boundaries of music?The album that carries U2 into its 25th year–and likely the mixed blessings of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame–is one of its most frank and focused since the days of October and War. But its gestation was anything but simple, in part salvaged from ’03 sessions the band deemed subpar. Enter Steve Lillywhite, the band’s original producer and sometime collaborator in the decades since, who helped retool the track “Native Son” (originally an antigun screed) into the aggressive iPod anthem “Vertigo” and leaves his distinctive stamp on the muscular “All Because of You.” Perhaps weary of ceaseless, fashion-driven reinvention in the wake of monumental success, U2 seem only too happy here to re-embrace their original sonic trademarks in service of more daring, pop-melodic hooks than they’ve collected in one place in decades. The Eno/Lanois produced “Love and Peace or Else” may shimmer with the duo’s electro-production conceits, but it’s Edge’s lugubrious, postmodern John Lee Hooker guitar swagger that drives it. Elsewhere, Bono’s trademark dramaturgy is spotlighted on “City of Blinding Lights,” the unabashed romance of “A Man and a Woman,” and the confessional “Sometimes You Can’t Make It on Your Own.” It may come wrapped in a conundrum–is it nostalgic retrenchment or a sum of the band’s endless musical catharsis?–It’s also the album where, Fly and MacPhisto be damned, U2 boldly claims its arena titan mantle with apologies to no one. –Jerry McCulley

U2: From The Sky Down [Blu-ray]

In 2011, U2 returned to Hansa Studios in Berlin to discuss the making of Achtung Baby. From The Sky Down, is a documentary film directed by Academy Award winning director Davis Guggenheim (It Might Get Loud, Waiting for Superman, An Inconvenient Truth).

Screened in the UK as part of the BBC’s Imagine Series, From The Sky Down was the first ever documentary film to open the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival. From The Sky Down includes bonus footage of So Cruel, Love Is Blindness, and The Fly shot in May 2011 during the band’s visit to Hansa Studios to mark the 20th anniversary of Achtung Baby; as well as a Q&A with Bono, The Edge and Davis Guggenheim filmed at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2011.

Twenty years after the release of U2’s Achtung Baby (1991), Davis Guggenheim charts the path toward this groundbreaking album. Guggenheim uses animation and unseen footage from Berlin and Dublin alongside conversation to reveal what is now a key chapter in U2 s career.
