This album is the epitome of hit or mmiss. There are a good few songs on there, although none of those humungous essential U2 hits. I really, really love Numb, it’s one of my OG U2 favourites. And Some Days is a great track too. But the problem with this album is that it really doesn’t fit together. The transition between Numb and the next song Lemon (some kind of disco number) is really jarring. And at the end, we suddenly jump to old school slow and meandering country with the wonder that is Johnny Cash. Getting Johnny Cash on your album should be a highlight but actually I sort of wish it wasn’t there. So mixed feelings from start to finish.

Rating: 3 / 5
