I've listened to the album 3 times and I think it's Great! it's like 'Boy' and *POP* have collided on this album  B)

Whoa... I really like this description. Well said, BB. Now that I think about it in this light, I have to agree -- especially since I've been playing U2's entire discography since 9/10 to give Songs of Innocence some historical U2 context.

I think Songs of Innocence is great. While, of the last three albums, I *loved* No Line on the Horizon the most and was hoping for more experimentalism in that regard, I do like the direction Songs... takes. It's a back-to-the-roots move without being a blatant back-to-the-sound move of ATYCLB.

I read that the band, Rush, goes through 3-album cycles but I think it can be said U2 has as well:

 

1) Boy, October, War: The "raw" albums

2) TUF, TJT, R&H: The "refined" albums

3) AB, Zooropa, Pop: The "electro" albums

4) ATYCLB, HTDAAB, NLOTH: The "really long title" albums (ok, ok, more like "The back-to-the-1990 fork in the road and down the other path" albums)

5) Songs of Innocence, Songs of Experience (assumed), Songs of Ascent (hoped/wished for): The "next move" albums

Although all of the songs are very good, none of them stand out as 'great' to me. My favorites are Iris, The Troubles, The Miracle, and Every Breaking Wave. I think there should be another option of 'very good'. I would choose that if it was available.

MJG3, I love your perspective !!!

Must be my Romanian heritage.  ;) Grandpop came over to the US with his parents in 1922 when he was 2.

 

 Wow ! Do you know from which region of Romania did his family come from ?

 

That would be Constanţa, though I would have to ask my dad or his extended family whether that is the county or the city proper.
