Songs of Innocence

U2 has been making many headlines recently with the release of their new album (!!!), Songs of Innocence. The album was made available for free on iTunes before Apple eventually decided to simply put it in everyone's iPod anyway. Now, this has angered some people who feel that Bono, Edge, and the crew were already pretentious enough, but that doesn't mean the music was bad. The songs were actually pretty decent. Sure, they were average U2 songs. Heartfelt, emotional, sweet, anthem-y, but still. Some of my favorites were Volcano, Song for Someone, Cedarwood Road, Sleep Like a Baby Tonight, and, the album's single, The Miracle (of Joey Ramone). I do recommend it!

  1. I think Apple shouldn't have assumed everyone wanted it, but the gesture itself was good. Even if there were ulterior motives. I am sure U2 fans were happy!
