U2 – Get On Your Boots (Justice Remix)

April 6, 2009

u2_justiceAs I’ve said before, U2‘s single didn’t do much (or anything) for me but Justice makes the original not only listenable, but completely enjoyable.

U2 No Line On The HorizonBy far the biggest new release today is U2′s 12th studio album, “No Line On The Horizon.”

I’ve been enjoying this album for a couple weeks now and am surprisingly impressed with it, which is noteworthy since I haven’t liked much of their stuff since the “Joshua Tree” days.  And apparently I’m not the only one enjoying the album: Rolling Stone gave it 5 Stars and EW an A-. (Pitchfork, which rarely thrives solely on being different, gave the album a 4.2).

I still don’t care for the album’s lead single, “Get On Your Boots,” so I’ll instead leave you with the album’s first two tracks:

Buy the album: Amazon (on sale for $3.99!) / iTunes

Kelly Clarkson & U2 Leaked

Kelly Clarkson All I Ever Wanted U2 No Line On The Horizon

Kelly Clarkson‘s new album (due Mar 10) and U2‘s new album (due Mar 3) have each leaked. I’m on the eighth track (of 14!) on the Kelly album and am loving it.  Totally impressed.  Haven’t listened to the U2 album yet but Rolling Stone apparently gave it 5 stars, if that means something.

Head to ALi’s Blog right now as the U2 link is getting yanked on Friday and the Kelly link on Sunday:

Kelly Clarkson, “All I Ever Wanted”
U2, “No Line On The Horizon”

U2 is set to release their twelfth, yes, twelfth album March 2. You can pre-order the album – “No Line On The Horizon” – now at iTunes.

I don’t really like this track and the album’s cover art looks like an HRC ad but you can make up your own mind.
