U2 - The Unforgettable Fire download album

The Unforgettable Fire is the fourth studio album by Irish rock band U2. It was produced by Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois, and released on 1 October 1984 by Island Records. The band wanted to pursue a new musical direction following the harder-hitting rock of their previous album, War (1983). As a result, they employed Eno and Lanois to produce and assist in their experimentation with a more ambient and abstract sound. The resulting change in direction was at the time the band's most dramatic.

About The Unforgettable Fire. This album brought U2 a different direction with their music, helped in no small part by influential producer Brian Eno. This dramatic change helped U2 in achieving greater fame later in the 1980s. The album’s title comes from an art exhibit about the dropping of the first atomic bomb over Hiroshima, Japan in 1945. The Unforgettable Fire Q&A.

Ultimately, The Unforgettable Fire would play out as a transitional record for this band, and over time would become regarded as the album that had to come before the success the band would enjoy with their next album, the instant classic "The Joshua Tree". It would also serve as a measuring stick of just how far this band could go and give them something to build back on for the future.
