No Line on the Horizon is the twelfth studio album by Irish rock band U2. It was produced by Brian Eno, Daniel Lanois, and Steve Lillywhite, and was released on 27 February 2009.

The Edge predicted that, despite its lack of a big hit, No Line on the Horizon would grow on listeners over time.

Mullen refers to the album as "No Craic on the Horizon" and said, "It was pretty fucking miserable. It turns out that we're not as good as we thought we were and things got in the way."

David Fricke of Rolling Stone gave it a five-star score and called it "[U2's] best, in its textural exploration and tenacious melodic grip, since 1991's Achtung Baby."

Voted for Fez because it's the only one I think I remember positively. Not gonna relisten to verify, though.

Magnificent or Breathe, the only two worthwhile songs on this album. Haven't listened to this album in years but Fez was only a half hearted attempt at something interesting, iirc

Moment of Surrender, full stop. Sometimes I think it’s their best song.

I like this record. It’s not great, or as life-changing as the band imagined it to be when they conceived it. And there’s a bit of a sense that they might’ve gone to the Lanois/Eno well once too often. But fuck me if its best moments aren’t amazing.
