iTunes Review

This deluxe album is Mastered for iTunes and includes 14 bonus tracks. By the end of the ’80s, U2 already ranked among the planet’s rock titans. Rather than rest on their laurels, the quartet tapped into throbbing club beats and ambient electronic sounds to create 1991’s Achtung Baby. The band’s spiritually inspired idealism and bracing guitar textures remain. What’s strikingly new here is a groove-driven approach that puts fresh meat on U2’s previously lean sonic bones. Bono is equally adventurous as a lyricist, adding a potent erotic charge to his themes of redemption and unity. “Even Better Than the Real Thing” and “Mysterious Ways” pulse with transcendent passion, while “Trying to Throw Your Arms Around the World” marries salvation with sensuality. From the metal-tinged fire of “Zoo Station” to the smoldering grandeur of “One”, the band creates music both timeless and boldly contemporary. From its first track to the last, Achtung Baby is a risk-taking work that re-defined U2 for the rest of the ’90s.

Customer Reviews

Buy this album - SCHNELL!!!

Totally agree with the I -Tunes review. ACHTUNG totally sold U2 to me. Like a few of their singles before this, but this was the album which made me go and see them on their ZOO TOUR, blown away by them.
This 2 CD edition is a must, featuring b-sides which are good enough to be A-sides. Also NIGHT & DAY, a COLE PORTER cover U2 recorded for the RED HOT & BLUE album.

The sound of the Joshua Tree being chopped down

How do you follow up one of the most perfectly realised and complete rock albums in the history of contemporary music? The answer - by chopping it down and virtually reinventing yourselves. This is one of the boldest and bravest musical statements ever made by an an established global act. It lost them some, but by no means most of their original fans, but gained millions more. The Zoo TV Tour that followed was even more innovative, and has still be bettered either in terms of scale or imagination.

20 years on it sounds as fresh and pioneering as it did at the time. Get the Deluxe version because much of the material that did not make the cut would be considered the very best output by many of the present day's best selling rock acts.

If U2 did B-sides they'd probably be the best B-sides in the world...

This is THE definitive U2 album in my books and the b-sides are just fantastic. I remember buying the singles on cassette and loving every note of both sides...Enjoy people as this is real sound you can move and sing to...


Formed: 1976 in Dublin, Ireland

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Through a combination of zealous righteousness and post-punk experimentalism, U2 became one of the most popular rock & roll bands in the world -- equally known for their sweeping sound as for their grandiose statements about politics and religion. The Edge provided the group with a signature sound by creating sweeping sonic landscapes with his heavily processed, echoed guitars. Though the Edge's style wasn't conventional, the rhythm section of Larry Mullen, Jr. and Adam Clayton played the songs...
