U2 - UNFORGETTABLE FIRE
U2's fourth album, The Unforgettable Fire is the first with the production team of Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois. And while they take a strong hand in wrestling U2's music out of the mainstream and into a more individualistic area, it's the songs themselves that demand a more subtle approach. Moody gems such as A Sort of Homecoming and the entrancing Bad set the table for more explosive fare such as Pride, Wire and the title track. This is the album that made U2 a career act, showing that their music could grow by leaps and bounds, even at the hand of another, without sacrificing its soul.
