Bono, 1987, on the album and its producers, Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois: "The Unforgettable Fire
was a beautifully out-of-focus record, blurred like an impressionist painting, very unlike a billboard or an advertising slogan ... In America there was such a backlash when we put out The Unforgettable Fire
. People thought we were the future of rock'n'roll and they went, 'What are you doin' with this doggone hippie Eno album?'" Bono added: "We owe Eno and Lanois so much for seeing through to the heart of U2."
