U2 rises, shines on 'Horizon'

CD "No Line on the Horizon," U2's best album since 1991's "Achtung Baby" arrives today, and it reclaims the Irish quartet's title of Best Band in the World. "I was born to sing for you," bellows Bono early on. While nothing is as immediately radio-friendly as the band's best moments of the last decade, the lyrically provocative songs -- about faith, love and war -- work well together and create a crescendo that is powerful and affecting, buttressed by the same rich, dense production textures of "Zooropa." The Edge further reinvents himself on the guitar, this time adding groovy grunge to his palette. Getting better with each listen -- trust me -- this is a bold album to push us through 2009 and beyond.
