Album : The Unforgettable Fire. A Sort of Homecoming is the first song of U2's 1984 album, The Unforgettable Fire. A live version of the track is found on 1985's four-track EP, Wide Awake in America. It is also the only song with lyrics inside the sleeve for the album. As the opening track on The Unforgettable Fire, A Sort of Homecoming epitomises the new direction U2 had taken. A far more atmospheric album than the previous overt-rock of War, the album has a rich and orchestrated sound. Like much of the album, the song replaces.

Similarly, the wet, shimmering textures of the title track, the charging A Sort of Homecoming, and the surging Martin Luther King, Jr. tribute Pride In the Name of Love are all remarkable, ranking among U2's very best music, making the missteps that clutter the remainder of the album somewhat forgivable. The Unforgettable Fire. 01 October, 19845. A Sort Of HomecomingLyrics. The Unforgettable Fire was U2's first studio collaboration with Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois. There were several significant re-issues including one in October 1996 as part of the Island Master series and one as part of the MFSL Ultradisc series in both the 12 vinyl and 5 CD formats with a slightly longer version of 4th Of July. Meanwhile, in Switzerland, The Unforgettable Fire reached on the album charts and stayed in the charts a total of 3 weeks. It was also selected as Best Album at Ireland's Music Industry Awards and in the Hot Press Reader's Poll, it was voted the No. 1 album by readers. To: jamesb Subject: CRD: A Sort of Homecoming U2.

Unfortunately, with The Unforgettable Fire, U2 flickers and nearly fades, its fire banked by a misconceived production strategy and occasional interludes of soggy, songless self-indulgence. This is not a bad album, but neither is it the irrefutable beauty the bands fans anticipated. What happened Initially, U2s decision to abandon the pop-conscious ministrations of its previous producers, Steve Lillywhite and Jimmy Iovine, and to hire instead the veteran experimentalist Brian Eno and his current collaborator, Canadian producer Daniel Lanois, seemed not only interesting but also admirably.
