“The Beginning Stages of…”

While not the pioneers of anthem rock, U2 find themselves the bearers of that torch on this new album… with a twist. Many of the songs found here are both anthemic AND emotional, something not found in many of the predecessors (like the contemporary Guns N Roses or previous rock acts). I dare you not to belt out at least one of the hits on this album. I dare you.
