Songs of Innocence = Album of the Year

U2’s Songs of Innocence is the top album of 2014, according to Rolling Stone.


The album tops the magazine’s just-published list of the 50 best albums of the year. Taylor Swift, Bruce Springsteen, Lana Del Rey and The Black Keys are also in the top ten. The short write-up explaining SOI’s position includes this:

This is a record full of the band’s stories and triumph, memory and confession detonated with adventure and poise. In its range of sounds, there may be no more complete U2 album: The band bonded its founding post-punk values with dance momentum in “Volcano” and the raw, jagged “Raised by Wolves,” and humanized the digital pathos of “Every Breaking Wave” and the harrowing “Sleep Like a Baby Tonight” with the vocal folk-soul warmth of The Joshua Tree. “I have a will for survival,” Bono sings in the closing track, “The Troubles.” Songs of Innocence is the proof — and the emotionally raw rock album of the year, at any price.
