SOE to me is the first interesting record U2 has done again since Pop. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it's the first "good" record they've done, but the first interesting one since. Sonically it's beautiful, and lyrically it's just poetic as all hell. Bono's firing on all cylinders (except on American Soul lol) and it shows.
Sincerely hope the next album follows in its footsteps. Get Andy Barlow to do the next entire album, and make sure Bono has a near-death accident just before again (totally kidding, TOTALLY KIDDING!).
