I was in Madrid the day this Album came out. No publicity: nada! Vinyls? Not yet! At least I bought the extended version whereas I was able to listen to the Book Of Your Heart. I did not expect U2 to come up with such a fine (unfinished?) masterpiece anno 2017.
Looking at the crazy prices for the upcomming Tour, I still said to myself that I have no idea for how long U2 will continue touring (with grand and imporoved quality).
The guitar, Bono's voices and His lyrics remind me of The Unforgettable Fire or any other historical stuff. I didn't expect to be surprized, but I was! True art.
My five cents (no, 473.80€, actually, for two seats + extras).

"When you sing, you have to open yourself up, you have to be raw. And you have to reveal yourself, and sometimes it's very difficult for me to listen to that back, because it might not be as macho as you see yourself."
- Bono, 2002
