Finally, we can see the cover art for U2’s latest album, “How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb“, scheduled to be released on November 23, 2004 (yet already available to be pre-ordered). Frankly, I don’t love the cover, but I will go with the old adage: “don’t judge a book by its cover”… The first single, “Vertigo” rocks! (and you can also check it out serving as the music to the latest iPod ad… which also rocks!)
So, long story short: I keep excited about this new release, four years in the making. I feel it will meet my expectations, much like R.E.M.’s latest did. If you haven’t gotten your copy of “Around The Sun“, in a nutshell you are missing on the “Automatic for the People” of the new millenium.
