An amazing album. There was a lull for me in getting exited about albums through out the early eighties. The early seventies when everything except radio was albums. And really no one typically dropped a phonograph stylus any where but at the beginning of an album. So you see kids, back then you had the good, the bad and the ugly all smooshed together, which pressed the competition to create GREAT ALBUMS. this seemed to wane, for me at least, in the eighties when the explosion of music made singles seem to dominate the airwaves. See instead of 50-60% of the albums content every getting air play, the eighties as a perpetual parade of one-hit-wonders.


Joshua Tree was a huge breath of fresh air. Not only was it more rooted in tradition rock than increasingly popular "MTV type" pop diddy songs that kept dominating the airwaves, it flowed. It soared. It was groundbreaking and familiar all at the same time.

This album is an outstanding piece of musical art unmatched. In a class all it's own... in my book at least.
