" 'The Joshua Tree' will prove a braver and better record than anything else that's likely to appear in 1987."
"More than any other U2 album, though, 'The Joshua Tree' has the power and allure to seduce and capture a mass audience on its own terms. Without making a show of its eclecticism, it features assertive rock ("Where the Streets Have No Name"), raw frenzy ("Bullet the Blue Sky"), delicacy ("One Tree Hill"), chugging rhythms ("I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For") and even acoustic bluesiness ("Running to Stand Still") - all of it unmistakably U2."
