Review #135: The Joshua Tree, U2

#135: The Joshua Tree, U2

I got dressed for a fish funeral while listening to this album for the first time. RIP Birdie II, your life was brief but my love for you is everlasting.

The second time, though, I was struck by just how many of these songs I knew. Did this album come out when I was a kid? No, turns out this came out in 1987, so it’s older than me by almost ten years.
