How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb CD

In 1991, U2 received much critical kudos for Achtung Baby.  The four-piece band had reinvented themselves as an entirely new group, abandoning their chiming moonwalk atmospherics for the explosive, impending electronica age.  However, the '90s didn't turn out quite as they planned and by 2000 the band were back with their old producers trying to re-find their inner U2.  Can you go home again?  Well, it seems you can bury the point all together by simply writing and recording songs that make it feel as if you never took the detour in the first place.  Atomic Bomb, much like the previous All That You Left Behind, features trademark U2 moves delivered with their sonically commanding depth and unashamed emotional range.  "Vertigo" opens the album with a stark, yet full-bodied, blast.  "Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own," "Crumbs From Your Table," and "Yahweh" yearn with spiritual concerns that no amount of material success seems to satisfy. - iTunes
