No Line on the Horizon is the twelfth studio album by the rock band U2.
Released on 27 February 2009, it was the group's first album since How
to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb (2004), marking the longest gap between
studio albums of U2's career. Work on the record began in 2006 with
producer Rick Rubin, but most of the material from those sessions was
shelved. From June 2007 to December 2008, the band collaborated with
Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois, who produced and co-wrote many of the
songs. Writing and recording took place in the United States, United
Kingdom, Ireland and Morocco. Prior to the album's release, U2
indicated that Eno's and Lanois's involvement, as well as the band's
time in Fez, Morocco, had resulted in a more experimental record than
their previous two albums. No Line on the Horizon received generally
favourable reviews, although it was not as commercially successful as
anticipated and many critics noted that it was not as experimental as
previously suggested. U2 are supporting the album with the U2 360°
