U2 – The Joshua Tree

“The Joshua Tree” thrust U2 from being underground heroes to international rock and roll superstars.

With the help of producers Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois, the combined open ambient atmospherics and tight edgy forcefulness combined on nearly every song created a perfectly balanced sound that helped “With or Without You”, “Where the Streets Have No Name, and “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” become three of the biggest hits for U2. Those songs in turn, propelled the “The Joshua Tree” to the top of the album charts in more than 20 countries around the world, including the US and the UK.

As a part of its legacy, “The Joshua Tree” holds the record as the fastest selling album ever in the UK.
