So apparently the “No Line on the Horizon” I heard before was totally a b-side. Whoopsiedaisy! That must’ve been the “punk-y Pixies/Buzzcocks homage” version that Q Magazine mentioned some time ago. All the better. Anything unexpected shall always surprise. And “No Line on the Horizon” surprises in spades. And by surprises, I mean this song is awesomely ridiculous. Check out U2’s Myspace page if you don’t believe me; they’re streaming that ridiculousness.
So in honor of all the ridiculousness and surprises No Line on the Horizon seems to be holding, I’ve decided to do these track-by-track reviews as haikus, because that’s also surprising and ridiculous (and I also don’t know how to properly discuss music worth a damn; I studied film, lay off me!).
So here we go, y’all:
Well that was fun (?). And ludicrous. And an exercise in absolute nonsense. And there’s still 10 more to go. Ruh-roh. Looks like this is going to be a bumpy ride on the crazy train…
Next up: “Magnificent.”
