An exploration of the underlying theme in the story of the stone angel

Background[ edit ] Before The Joshua Tree, U2 had released four studio albums and were an internationally successful band, particularly as a live act having toured every year in the s. U2 began writing new material in mid following the Unforgettable Fire Tour. I saw the spoiled child of the Western world.

I started thinking, 'They may have a physical desert, but we've got other kinds of deserts. Bono was embarrassed by his lack of familiarity with the genres, as most of U2's musical knowledge began with punk rock in their youth in the mids.

He realised that U2 "had no tradition" and felt as if they "were from outer space".

I wrote words on the microphone. For The Joshua Tree, I felt the time had come to write words that meant something, out of my experience. We had done quite revolutionary things So we felt, going into The Joshua Tree, that maybe options were not a good thing, that limitations might be positive.

And so we decided to work within the limitations of the song as a starting point.

We wanted the record to be less vague, open-ended, atmospheric and impressionistic. To make it more straightforward, focused and concise.

The Edge recalled it as a difficult period with a sense of "going nowhere", although Bono was set on America as a theme for the album.

To aid in sound isolation, gobos were built in the drawing room, although the production staff still faced issues with audio spill from the monitor speakers.

Lanois said that due to the setup, "you have to make a commitment to what you put down and either use it or throw it all away.

More contemporary references included the textural guitar work of the Smiths and My Bloody Valentine.

The band's musical vocabulary had improved after their previous album, facilitating communication and collaboration with the production team. The large drawing room, with a tall ceiling and wooden floors, created an "ear-splitting" drum sound that caused issues for the group.

The band in particular were labelled hypocrites for their participation. I think there were a lot of headaches, isolating people and having to build baffles around the place. Lanois said that most of the record was done there, [16] and that it was the preferred location for mixing.

Robertson was in Ireland to complete his self-titled debut solo album that he had begun with Lanois. However, the group struggled with the chord and time signature shifts, [32] forcing significant "screwdriver work" to fix a recorded version of the song.

Ultimately, the erasure never occurred. The vocalist had another set of lyrics for most of the record, but the other group members were dissatisfied with them, forcing rewrites.

There was this one album, the 'blues' album that Bono was talking about, and another, much more 'European', which is kind of the way I was led. If we even consider any of them we'll still be here in three months time.

Rough mixes had been created throughout the sessions after each song was recorded to, in Lanois' words, take "snapshots along the way The final weeks were a frantic rush to finish, with the band and production crew all suffering from exhaustion.

Eno and Flood had minimal involvement with the final mixes, [16] as they had other commitments. Facing understaffing, [18] in late December, U2 hired Steve Lillywhiteproducer of their first three albums, to remix the potential singles and make them more appealing to commercial radio.

The band told her to put "Where the Streets Have No Name" first and "Mothers of the Disappeared" last, with the rest sequenced according to her preference.

The track was re-recorded as a single for the group's compilation The Best of —Sometimes some of the best horror writing can be found in anthologies and collections of short stories.
