If you're a U2 fan, make your Songs of Experience review known by ranking all the songs from best to worst below. Bono took an innovative approach while drafting his lyrics. Songs of Experience could easily be classified as an epistolary album as each song is a letter penned by Bono to someone or something that had a profound impact on his life. A companion to Songs of Innocence, an exploration of adolescent naivety, Songs of Experience tells more nuanced stories about both the cynicism and wisdom that come with aging. The fourteenth studio album from the Irish band features great U2 singles like "You're the Best Thing About Me" and "Get Out of Your Own Way."
