The Unforgettable Fire is the fourth studio album by Irish rock band U2. It was produced by Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois, and released on 1 October 1984 by Island Records. The band wanted to pursue a new musical direction following the harder-hitting rock of their previous album, War (1983). As a result, they employed Eno and Lanois to produce and assist in their experimentation with a more ambient and abstract sound. The resulting change in direction was at the time the band's most dramatic.

Album: The Unforgettable Fire (1984). Charted: 6. Get the Sheet Music License This Song. Dave from Cardiff, WalesThe album of the same name was U2's magnum opus of the 1980s. Many will argue, but personally, I don't think they ever bettered it, not even with The Joshua Tree. Angela from Hagerstown, MdThis is probably THE most beautiful U2 song. Ashley from Wouldntyalyke2know, In When I think of that line, "And if the mountians should crumble into the sea", I think of the "Stand by Me" song and it also makes me think of when Jesus was talking about faith

OBI is a wrap around sticker rather than the paper sleeve style seen on later releases. All tracks recorded in Ireland at Slane Castle, County Meath and Windmill Lane Studios, Dublin.

So The Unforgettable Fire isn't U2's biggest commercial success (that would be The Joshua Tree) or its most rewarding artistic coup (Achtung Baby), but without it those records would not exist. It's a transitional album of the highest magnitude. The hits- "Pride", "Bad"- still hit, and even its sometimes-derided abstractions like "Promenade" and "Elvis Presley and America" contain enough mystery to keep unraveling 25 years later. The opener tells of an ambiguous return.
