Product Description:

U2: Bono (vocals); The Edge (guitar, keyboards, vocals); Adam Clayton (bass);
Larry Mullen, Jr. (drums).
Additional personnel: Paul Barrett (synthesizer); Brian Eno, Daniel Lanois.
Recorded at Slane Castle, County Meath and Windmill Lane Studios, Dublin, Ireland.
With a title inspired by an exhibition of paintings by Hiroshima and Nagasaki survivors, THE UNFORGETTABLE FIRE confirmed U2 as one of a handful of bands able to tackle such vast and emotive subjects with dignity and musical integrity. There are few artists capable of writing about religion, war, race, politics, and life with such ferocity and global commercial success. 'Pride (In The Name Of Love)', an elegy for Martin Luther King, was a breakout hit, and every track--wrapped in the Edge's impressionistic guitar splashes--reveals a quartet hungry for the world stage. The production by Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois was a taste of things to come.
