37 years ago today, U2 reached the top of the UK Albums Chart for the first time, with their third studio album, War. The album would ultimately spend a total of 147 weeks on the chart. To celebrate, we're revisiting Liam Mackey's review of War – originally published in Hot Press in February 1983.

The Edge: “[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ‘You know what? We’re not going to second-guess any of this. Let’s just go for it.’”

U2 Fans: We'd all love to see that, Edge.
