Best Rock Album: AC/DC, Eric Claptop & Steve Winwood, Green Day, Dave Matthews Band and U2. Tell us what you think !
U2 seemed to have a 360 degree view of the world this year, setting attendance records at every stop on Bono and company’s high tech world tour. But it was “No Line on the Horizon,” the band’s twelfth album and its strongest recording in nearly a decade, that lifted the band into the outer stratosphere. THe band sang with a new urgency on singles like “Get On Your Boots,” “Magnificent” and “If I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight,” a song that herlads back to the finest moments on its breakthrough “The Joshua Tree.” U2 debuted “Boots” on the 2009 Grammy Awards broadcast despite the song not being eligible for an award; they hope to collect on that down payment this year.
