It is considered a pivotal album for the band since it distanced them from the more experimental conceits of the previous decade. ''Magazine/RollingStone'' listed ''All You Can't Leave Behind'' as the #139 [[UsefulNotes/RollingStone500GreatestAlbumsOfAllTime greatest album of all time]] in 2003, though it later dropped to #280 in 2012. The group's ensuing tour, the "Elevation Tour," became massively successful thanks in part to their performance at the UsefulNotes/[[NationalFootballLeague]] UsefulNotes/SuperBowl halftime show, where they honored the victims of [[TheWarOnTerror the 9/11 attacks]].

The recording and production of the album was delayed due to Bono's increased activism, something the rest of the band viewed as a distraction. Nevertheless, the group quickly reunited with Music/BrianEno and Daniel Lanois, who had produced ''The Unforgettable Fire'', ''Music/TheJoshuaTree'', and ''Music/AchtungBaby'', solidifying U2's return to form. The record came together effortlessly, thanks to the group's embrace of former styles such as The Edge's signature, atmospheric guitar tones, which he had abandoned during TheNineties. While keeping newer techniques such as synthesizers and electronic drum beats on "New York" and "Beautiful Day," the band branched out and used acoustic guitars and pianos on "Stuck in a Moment" and "Wild Honey" to convey a more simplistic sound throughout the record.
