What I've learned at college: when school gives you massive amounts of assignments, pray (and reach for the records).
My 17 songs of the year in a post inspired by the lovely Olivia over at MusicLovingLiv.
Today, I take on the Shuffle Music Tag that The culture club nominated me to do.
Unfortunately, today we're digging into my second-least-favourite U2 album. But at least there are still some bright spots to it...right?
Today we're covering U2's dense and industrial "Zooropa," the EP-turned-album that despite its flaws, offers some fascinating and creative musical moments.
Have you ever wondered what "the sound of four men chopping down The Joshua Tree" would sound like? Well, look no further, because it's the wild, sensual and industrial "Achtung Baby" we're looking at today.
Today, it's "Rattle and Hum" we're digging a little deeper into. So go on, Edge, play the blues.
The time has finally come. Today I take a closer look at the album that lead to U2's first "peak"-the 30-year-old "The Joshua Tree."
Today we cover the album that represents U2's critical step from the anger of "War" to the thoughtfulness of "The Joshua Tree" and cemented their official sound. I'm talking of course about "The Unforgettable Fire," one of the band's most underrated albums (and also one of my favourites).
Continuing in my U2 series, I take a look at the most openly political and punk-inspired album in the group's catalogue-the furious and indignant "War."
