Info for Other Worlds
“Other Worlds” is yet another testament to Bono’s inventiveness as a guitarist and composer. Ever present are his sensitive, virtuosic ideas. What’s new is the electrified edge — especially in his guitar and in Li’s keyboards, and the interstellar places they take these songs. “I wanted it to be a floaty, dreamy, ethereal soundscape,” explains Bono, who began composing the album after reading Alan Lightman’s surrealist science fiction novel Einstein’s Dreams. It is exactly the sort of creativity listeners have come to recognize in Bono across his previous four albums.
