How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb

Published November 25, 2004.U2How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb(Interscope)How To Dismantle an Atomic Bomb is being heralded as U2’s return to their rock roots. Press play and you’re launched into “Vertigo,” the misleading single from Bono and Co— it’s a rock-leaning track, but after Atomic Bomb really gets going, it never lives up to its billing. It’s standard pop-rock U2. If you dug All That You Can’t Leave Behind, you’ll dig Atomic Bomb. The old adage “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” applies here. Hard-rock fans will have to begrudge another pop U2 disc. —Trevor Savory
