U2 

No Line on the Horizon (Vertigo)

Once inspiring to world-conquering bands like Radiohead and Coldplay, U2 now has to work to keep up to its prodigy. The veteran rockers make it look easy with the risk-taking on this album, resisting the urge to rewrite either "Beautiful Day" or "New Year's Day." While nothing here will shock the faithful as much as Zooropa, the guitar-driven melodies wed to churchy hymns, underpinned by the hypnotic, pulsating electronica of producers Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno, take the band in new directions: Witness the rattle, hum and pop of the title track, the soulful gorgeous "Moment of Surrender" or "Breathe," the best song Pearl Jam never wrote.
