U2 conveys their pain of the attacks in Ireland through the music of War. Sunday Bloody Sunday truly shows they are not just doing this for money. This is a great album because every song belongs in there every song reprsents War and they flow well.

Buy WAR because it is truely one of U2’s all-time best. But buy it because it contains the song: Drowning Man. A classic, one of U2’s best, but most overlooked and unappreciated songs ever.
The ORIGINAL American Idiot
by War of the Achtung Tree - 17/11/2016
Green Day’s American Idiot was obviously based off of War. They both have the same main theme: the world is seriously messed up. The main difference is that Green Day decided to load it with explicit language and War is much better. Here’s my song-by-song breakdown!
1) Sunday Bloody Sunday 11/10: This is the greatest song ever written by anyone ever. An amazing combo of deep lyrics and an insane drum part! The only song that I will ever rank above 10/10.
2) Seconds 9/10: Contrasting happy-sounding instruments and creepy lyrics (and little kids) makes a great song!
3) New Year’s Day 10/10: War’s other gem, a song with a great climax and bass part.
4) Like a Song 8/10: Only forgotten because its right behind three classics. Very underrated.
5) Drowning Man 7/10: A little forgettable and slow, but not that bad.
6) The Refugee 9/10: This song always seems to be forgotten, but I love it, mainly because of the African sound.
7) Two Hearts Beat as One 9/10: A great song, and perfect for running to.
8) Red Light 6/10: Worst on album. Female singers and U2 do NOT mix.
9) Surrender: 6/10: Another boring and predictable song. Makes you wonder why the album is downward spiralling.
10) 40 9/10: A great closer, even though it doesn’t match the rest of the upbeat album. Love the Psalm lyrics!
