U2 - The Joshua Tree 2LP (180g)


Deluxe 20th anniversary remastered edition back in stock once again! Having nearly exhausted its capacity for pop-song politics on War and The Unforgettable Fire, U2 turned toward themes of personal identity and complex relationships on The Joshua Tree. Not that the group was willing to come down off the barricades entirely: "Mothers of the Disappeared" and "Bullet the Blue Sky" turn a jaundiced eye toward Central America and the United States' role there. But the predominant mood here is one of self-discovery and the hunger for something more on tracks like the pulsating "Where the Streets Have No Name" and the gospel-tinted "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For." The album's masterstroke, however, is "With or Without You," a divided love song dressed up as an ode of devotion. The band will be out on the road again in 2017 celebrating the 30th anniversary of The Joshua Tree and performing the album in full, every night.
