Cry Without Weeping

As in the line from the fifth song on U2's The Joshua Tree: "Running to Stand Still."

You've got to talk without speaking,
Cry without weeping,
Scream without raising your voice...

I feel a certain affinity for this album because the music is like the wide-open and eversharp landscapes of the American Southwest, where I live; and too because I saw U2 at Denver's McNichols Arena on the album's tour back in 1987---one of the sites where the band filmed Rattle & Hum concert footage.

And also because this is the best rock album ever produced.

Talk amongst yourselves....
