U2 produced by Rick Rubin. I like the idea.
Rick gives off some really confusing vibes, but then so does his work. Here’s a man that can’t and won’t be stereotyped as anything other than eclectic. However there are a few things that can be said about Rick Rubin. Like how he seems very capable at bringing bands back to basics, cutting all the crap and producing a very clean, stripped down sound instead. Or how he seems to be able to breathe new life into a band’s sound and career, like he did with Cash or the Peppers. Another trademark has been having artists cover unexpected material in their own style, of which Johnny Cash’s cover of One is but one example.
