About this album

No Line on the Horizon is the twelfth studio album by Irish rock band U2, released on 27 February 2009 in Ireland, 2 March in the rest of Europe, and a day later in North America. The album is U2’s first since 2004’s How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb, the longest gap between studio albums in the band’s career. It was accidentally leaked onto the internet before release. On the first day of the official release it reached platinum status.

The unreleased album found its way onto BitTorrent and was downloaded hundreds of thousands of times. As a result, it was rumored that the RIAA asked social music service for data about its users’ listening habits to find people with unreleased tracks on their computers. denied such situation occurred.

    Apart from one or two tracks, there's nothing particularly brilliant here but it's all surprisingly memorable and just plain well-done.

    I really love this album. The only problem I have with it is its running order. It took me a while to find one that really worked for me.

    Today, after a long break, I decided to listen through this album, and I must agree with those who say it's one of U2's most underrated albums. This album really is very good, with amazing energy and emotion.

    I like this album, as well as October. I don't understand why those two albums aren't more recognized in the U2 discography. "Magnificent" is great and "Moment of Surrender" is probably my favorite U2 song since something from Achtung Baby.

    I like the album, even though the album cover suggests something boring inside. Damn, does that cover bug the hell out of me. (Must be my graphic design background acting up.) The linear notes cite the photo as the "Boden Sea - Uttwil".
