CD Review: U2 - The Unforgettable Fire
CD Information and Notes:
- U2 is Paul "Bono Vox" Hewson (vocals); Dave "The Edge" Evans (guitar, background vocals); Adam Clayton (bass); Larry Mullen, Jr. (drums).
- Recorded at Slade Castle Co., Meath, Ireland and Windmill Lane Studios, Dublin, Ireland.
The title of this album was taken from an exhibition of paintings by survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
- The Unforgettable Fire confirmed U2 as one of a handful of bands able to tackle such vast and emotive subjects with dignity and musical integrity. There are few artists capable of writing about religion, war, race, the Irish problem and life with such ferocity and global commercial success. 'Pride (In The Name Of Love)', a hymn to Martin Luther King, was a worldwide hit, and almost every track is an anthem sung by millions. The production by Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois was a taste of things to come.
