Achtung, Baby

Laugh if you must, but U2 is, was, and always shall be one of my favorite bands, so this news is a nice early Christmas present. So are the rumors that the album might move away from the earnest, stripped-down "classic rock" stylings of the last two records back to the more lyrically ambiguous and sonically interesting work U2 did in the 90s (the record was produced by fifth Beatle Brian Eno and longtime U2 collaborator Daniel Lanois, the gentlemen behind many of their best records). After all, a return to those goofy "Fly" goggles Bono used to wear can only be a good thing.
