U2's new album (Songs of innoncence): Every Breaking Wave

Last week I listened to 'Songs of innoncence', U2's much discussed new album. It's good, not exceptional. The best song in my opinion is...

   ..which (suspiciously) reminds me of this old, nowadays almost unknown 80s song

...from The Roaring Boys. An almost forgotten new romantic band which produced only one  eponymou  album (with a three good songs on a total count of eleven, including 'House of Stone'). It's a complete ripoff? Absolutely not. But I think maybe Bono and the Edge owe something to those six old former new romantics.
