The Joshua Tree" is the fifth studio album by rock band U2 and was released on 9 March 1987. It won the 1988 Grammy award for album of the year. The release of The Joshua Tree saw the band on the cover of Time Magazine billed as 'Rock's Hottest Ticket. In 1999, The Joshua Tree CD was re-issued with the clear band photo that appeared on the original vinyl LP rather than the blurred picture on the initial CD release. The Joshua Tree entered the US album charts at N. and reached No. 1 three weeks later. It was U2's first album to reach N. in the United States. In 1999, The Joshua Tree was awarded the RIAA's highest certification, Diamond, with 10 million units sold.

Released on 9 March, 1987, The Joshua Tree was a record concerned with the state of America. The eleven tracks within were informed by personal tragedy, political upheaval and Bono’s own experiences volunteering in South America. Their second collaboration with influential producer Brian Eno, the album contained some of U2’s most enduring hits, such as With Or Without You, I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For and Where The Streets Have No Name. It’s no surprise that the album went on to win Album of the Year at the 1988 Annual Grammy Awards.

Using the textured sonics of The Unforgettable Fire as a basis, U2 expanded those innovations by scaling back the songs to a personal setting and adding a grittier attack for its follow-up, The Joshua Tree. It's a move that returns them to the sweeping, anthemic rock of War, but if War was an exploding political bomb, The Joshua Tree is a journey through its aftermath, trying to find sense and hope in the desperation.

The Joshua Tree entered the US album charts at N. The album also peaked at N. on the UK, Canadian, West German, Dutch and Australian charts. In Switzerland, the album reached N. on the charts and stayed there for a total of 33 weeks. The album and sleeve cover also placed No. 1 in Rolling Stone magazine's annual Music Awards chosen by readers

  • Expansive and well-drawn out, U2 take their rich sound and mesh it with hopeful/hopeless lyrics to paint a Mona Lisa, otherwise known as The Joshua Tree. The album explores the remnants of desperation and offers intriguing points of view on how the pieces can come back.together. The biggest inspiration for U2 was America. With all its flaws, inner beauty as well as outer, the band take in the American experience and paint a picture so fragile, yet so strong that it gives hope to the hopeless. The Joshua Tree is the pinnacle of U2's sonic texture period, and the lyrics complimented the journey they were on. Key tracks are Where The Streets Have No Name, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, With Or Without You, Bullet The Blue Sky, Running To Stand Still, and In God's Country.

  • A gem on its own right, The Joshua Tree is the album that helped U2 to reach a much wider audience, following 6 years in the underground side. This 1987 masterpiece includes three of the major hits of the Irish band which have become timeless classics, a must for any fan of the band and concert favorite on each tour: Where The Streets Have No Name, I Still Haven´t Found What I´m Looking For and their memorable With Or Without You. Incidentally, The Joshua Tree also includes other interesting tracks such as the politically-inspired Bullet The Blue Sky, which is a comment on the presence of U.S. Air Force fighters around the world, the end of the Reagan Administration and the Cold War era with the then Soviet Union, Running To Stand Still, the socially-conscious Red Hill Mining, the religiously tinged In God´s Country and the Human Rights-inspired Mother Of The Disappeared, which is a tribute to the missing people in Chile and Argentina, during the Military dictatorship affecting those South American nations. Trip Through Your Wires and Exit complete this magnificent masterpiece, a must-have for any respectable music fan and for all U2 supporters, as well.

  • One of the iconic albums of the 80s, the Joshua Tree is U2 at their most focused, passionate, and mysterious. Side 2 is often forgotten which is a shame. Void of the mega hits, it is a dark, haunting listen, even years later. Another forgotten piece of the puzzle that catapulted them to world stardom was their Live Aid performance prior to this release. The band did border on oversaturation at this point, and basically reinvented themselves with brilliant effect on Achtung Baby, the huge follow up. Many diehard fans accused them of selling out, and if they did, it was a strange but effective way to do it. The original gatefold LP is the way to go sonically IMHO. "Run to the ocean, run to the sea" are great, dramatic lyrics, evoking Yeats, and other great poets.

  • I bought this album when it came out and it, along with War, represents my favorite U2 work. Although pretty much everything they do is good, those two albums are it for me. Thought it was funny that the Allmusic reviewer dissed Bullet the Blue Sky, as it's an absolute classic tune, whether he believes it or not!

  • Throughout the early and mid '80s U2 had steadily established themselves as significant stars in Britain and Europe, part of a great cluster of 'Big Music' rock bands along with Big Country, The Waterboys and Simple Minds. But here they emerged from the pack and became global superstars with their masterpiece, The Joshua Tree. Directing the theme of their songs away from Britain and their native Ireland towards America was a very clever commercial move, one which had already shown hints of success with 'Pride (In The Name of Love)' from The Unforgettable Fire album becoming their first U.S. top 40 hit. But the reason it wasn't just a tacky money making exercise, the reason it went off without a hitch, is that U2 retained their sense of emotional impact and care, taking time to study their subject before writing songs that struck a chord with people in the States and across the World.And did they ever strike a chord, with 'I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For', 'Where The Streets Have No Name' and 'With or Without You' all becoming gigantic hit singles, each featuring the polished artistry of Brian Eno's production, the signature fiery yet tasteful guitar work of The Edge coupled with Bono's ever impassioned vocals and driving the album to the top of just about every chart imaginable.U2 would produce many more great songs over the next 20 years and indeed a few more good albums. But in my humble opinion, none of their subsequent full-lengthers ever came close to hitting this type of peak again. It would be near impossible to even try.

  • I'm not a big U2 fan, but there's no denying the excellence of this album. While "War" is my favorite album of theirs, "The Joshua Tree" really is the quintessential U2 album. As for the AllMusic review; "only the clumsy, heavy rock and portentous lyrics of "Bullet the Blue Sky" fall flat," seriously?! This has to be one of the best songs on the album...

  • This is the best album of their career. Every song is a masterclass in songwriting. The production is nearly perfect as well is the performance. The band have released some classic tunes on future releases but no album since The Joshua Tree has U2 been this close to perfect.

  • One of the few rock albums from the 80's (that I've heard so far), that I truly love. The entire first of half of The Joshua Tree in particular is something special. Where the Streets Have No Name is a marvel of epic, ambient influenced rock sonics that is utterly euphoric in nature, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For and With or Without You always get me going emotionally (I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For in particular makes me want to cry despite being an atheist), Bullet the Blue Sky is trippy, visceral hard rocking stuff, and Running to Stand Still is just devastating. The second half of the album is admittedly not as striking and satisfying as the first half, but it's still got it's gems like Red Hill Mining Town, the somber Mothers of the Disappeared and the driving, cinematic In God's Country although Trip Through Your Wires almost brings it down. Despite this, the immense power of the first half of the album make it essential.

  • "The Joshua Tree" was a historical snapshot of U2's position as one of the leading rock bands in the world, borne from relentless touring and exploring American musical culture, and lead singer Bono's increasingly single minded effort to expose inhumanity and social injustice to a largely ignorant world. Recalling the services of producers Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno, who, rather than expand on the dense sonic textures of "The Unforgettable Fire", peel back the layers to reveal sparsely filled compositions, subtle guitar tones from The Edge, more melodic basslines from Adam Clayton, and Larry Mullen's simplistic, clearly punctuated rhythms. There's a deeper sense of the roots of rock and roll, with touches of blues, gospel, and traditional Americana weaved into the remnants of their post punk roots. Bono had toiled over his lyric writing like never before, an effort to make sure his lines were as poetically justified as the weighty subject matter he presented. It's a mixture of loss, love and longing, both radical and reactionary, politically nationless, carefully detailed, and a far cry from some of the hastily hashed studio scribbling of previous recordings."The Joshua Tree" opens with a triple salvo that's quite simply stunning in its emotionally charged minimalistic intensity. Indeed, it's difficult to consider that there are many collections that have a three song introduction as vital as this. As the passages close on "Where The Streets Have No Name", one hears an almost spiritual swell of quivering guitar that meshes with the massively climactic burst. In contrast, "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" revolves slowly, with acoustic and bottleneck embellishments from The Edge, and Bono's yearning for the next borderless world. "With Or Without You" echoes from a tune that was a relic from "October", with an increasingly more agile, confident vocal performance from the singer. "Bullet The Blue Sky" shows that the band are both in awe and horror with the U.S, as barbaric militaristic intervention in El Salvador and Nicaragua saw bombing and destruction of civilians. "Red Hill Mining Town" confronts the continuing break down of the British coal industry, with emphasis on its effect on the family. The softly haunting "One Tree Hill" is a perfect evocation of the loss of band roadie and friend Greg Carroll, who had been killed in a motorcycling accident the previous year.Some commentators would consider Bono's politicized pontification a little too earnest, but in many ways that's what makes "The Joshua Tree" such a bravely triumphant album. The tree that bears the album's name represents life and hope in a barren, unforgiving wilderness. U2 may have committed themselves to a moral crusade that laid their career on the line, but they backed it with a truly outstanding record.

  • U2's best album. This was the album that catapulted them to superstardom and everything good about U2 was executed perfectly on The Joshua Tree. Fav Tracks: Where the Streets Have No Name, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, With or Without You, Bullet the Blue Sky Least Fav Track: NONE. All the tracks are great.
