Josh Hurst hosts a U2 love-in. Meanwhile, at artsandfaith.com, Andy Whitman of Paste, who is working on his review of the new album, lets this slip:
Don’t believe the hype. This is not U2’s best album, but it is a really good non-reinvention. I think “Magnificent” is the best U2 worship song since “Gloria,” and that “Unknown Caller” is in the Top 10 of greatest U2 songs ever.
