Progrography

U2
Most of their contemporaries were murky in vision, artistic in bent: Siouxsie and the Banshees, Echo & The Bunnymen, The Cure. These bands were like mad prophets in the wings while U2 and Big Country charged to the front lines of rock, idealist standard-bearers of big hearts and big ideas. Of the early Lillywhite albums, War was the winner; then came the Eno/Lanois albums like The Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby. Those three albums represent some of the greatest rock music in the last 30 years, although the whole U2 phenomenon has been a bit much for me at times: the costumes, the social crusades, the cult that surrounds them.
