"'War' is important to me, to the whole band, but make or break? I don't think so, more of a progressive build up. We have developed the sound, taking it a stage further. It is far more rhythmic with music more depth. 'War' is our heaviest album yet."
- Bono on War, 1983

Larry Mullen Jr. is well-known for his dislike of the Passengers album. In 2002, when reflecting on the album, he mentioned while it hadn't grown on him, Miss Sarajevo (with Luciano Pavarotti) 'is a classic'. The song was played subsequently on the 2005 - 2006 Vertigo Tour, on the 360 Tour (2009 - 2011) and also on the Joshua Tree 2017 tour (even though it was tiitled "Miss Syria" then).
