Review by Will Johnson

U2's All That You Can't Leave Behind (Universal-Island) **** - a title to combine their best qualities from the '80s and early '90s, leaving out more recent experimentations. It's post-Pop pop, which Bono calls "big music". From the Joshua Tree panoramics of 'Beautiful Day', the Achtung! Baby technophonics of 'Elevation' or the Rattle & Hum gospeldom of 'Walk On', the appetite for heart and soul music is back, the sonic soundbite has eaten itself. And, quite possibly, the best modern pop/rock album recorded by a band of 40-somethings ever.
