If you don’t already know what to expect from U2’s twelfth studio album then you’re either a goldfish with Alzheimer’s or newborn, and if that’s the case then there are probably much better places for you to start than No Line On The Horizon. However, for the rest of us this is everything it should be, even if it’s nothing you wouldn’t expect. The lead in single "Get On Your Boots" might have forgotten to pack a chorus and instead crammed in a bewildering mash of Nancy Sinatra, Cameo’s "Word Up" and Led Zeppelin in an effort to reignite the pop art dervishes in them that time washed down the creek, but it does actually get more singularly feisty with every listen. "Stand Up Comedy" is equally absurd ("Stand" by REM/"Love Spreads" by The Stone Roses/generic Red Hot Chilli Peppers in a light funk sandwich), but the album’s not all about them trying to prove their creative audacity. The title track vibrates with the mild threat of modernity and a chest-beating, loud-hailer bravado, "Moment Of Surrender" allows Bono to shed some passion over the measured, subdued backdrop and the triple of "Unknown Caller", "I’ll Go Crazy If I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight" and "Magnificent" make no bones about being classic U2, ringing chimes reverberating from The Edge’s guitar like endlessly reproducing embryos under the microscope; the kind of stuff that professional obsessives The Killers would, you know, kill for.
