"a guitar is an instrument of change"

Rather taken with this comment which Fresno Dave highlighted, from here:

[On NLOTH] the "big statements"... masquerade as rock, but they have a spiritual pull that suck[s] you in and overwhelm[s]. On previous albums, Bono brazenly beseeched listeners to fall to their knees, but on tracks this potent, he doesn't have to ask - the impulse is instinctual.
...More significantly, it's the first album in eons in which U2 aren't noticeably trying on somebody else's clothes.
