With all of the attention surrounding the free distribution of U2’s 13th album, it’s easy to overlook the solid playing of veteran Adam Clayton. On an album that doesn’t change color very often, Clayton does plenty to alter the vibe with his fast, moody picking on “Iris (Hold Me Close)” and with his mid-focused, distorted bass tone on “Volcano.” With the help of producer Danger Mouse’s vintage taste in tone, Clayton delivers a solid performance.
