Reseña de álbum

U2 is one of the handful of major rock acts that hasn't exploited their back catalog as much as they should. Their early albums have not been remastered since the '80s, there are plenty of early singles and EPs that haven't shown up on CD, B-sides that aren't easily available, and rarities tucked away in the vault. In other words, they're the perfect candidates for a deluxe edition reissue campaign, a project they finally began in a big way in 2007 when they released two deluxe editions of The Joshua Tree. Although this 1987 album was neither their debut nor their first great record, it made perfect sense that The Joshua Tree would be the first deluxe reissue as it was the album that made U2 international superstars — plus, the group was ready to embark on this reissue campaign just in time for the album's 20th anniversary, perfect timing for all concerned. The two reissues share restored artwork (the original CD release zoomed in on Anton Corbijn's photograph, distorting the four members) and the same bonus CD, which essentially rounds up all the B-sides from the extended CD singles pulled from the album, adding a couple other non-LP rarities along with a handful of previously unreleased outtakes. Of these, the most musically substantial are the B-sides, which are among U2's strongest, boasting such staples "Sweetest Thing" (here in the original 1987 version, not the re-recording for The Best of 1980-1990), "Silver and Gold" (present in both the band's take and Bono's country-blues duet with Ron Wood and Keith Richards for the Sun City album), "Luminous Times (Hold on to Love)," "Spanish Eyes," and "Deep in the Heart." The unreleased songs are more demos and mood pieces than finished songs — although Bono did go into the studio prior to this reissue's release to add vocals to "Wave of Sorrow (Birdland)" — but their incompleteness is their appeal, as the ideas are still intriguing even if they're not polished. Despite its gloomy title, "Desert of Our Love" is a light, infectious number with slight soul influences that would have been out of step with the rest of The Joshua Tree (yet it points the way toward Rattle and Hum), "Rise Up" is almost to insistent in its desire to be an anthem, "Drunk Chicken/America" is an Allen Ginsberg poem delivered like a piece of bad Jim Morrison poetry, while "Beautiful Ghost/Introduction to Songs of Experience" is eerie atmosphere, as is "Wave of Sorrow." None is great, but they are interesting, and they help round out the already-known B-sides to make this bonus CD as a truly useful and entertaining expansion of the original album.

The bonus material stops with this second disc on the simple deluxe edition — for the three-disc, super deluxe edition, the entire package is housed in a hardcover book, containing liner notes from band biographer Bill Flanagan, along with previously unpublished Corbijn photos and reminiscences by Bono, the Edge, Adam Clayton, Brian Eno, and Daniel Lanois. Also, there is a DVD contains an 18-song concert, "U2 Live from Paris," which documents a July 4, 1987, show, a brief documentary about their American tour called (what else?) Outside It's America, an alternate version of "With or Without You," and, most interesting of all, the never-seen Neil Jordan-directed video for "Red Hill Mining Town." Even if the $59.98 suggested retail price is a little steep, this book and video are nice additions that will please hardcore U2 fans, of which there are many — plus, that high price justifies the release of the relatively bare-bones deluxe edition, as it's not only more affordable, it has the truly substantial musical rarities that should be heard by the widest audience.

Warning to "Complete U2" Owners...

I spent $50.00 on U2's The Joshua Tree Remastered Limited Edition 2CD + DVD set, ripped it to iTunes @ 256 AAC and think my iTunes Store purchased "Complete U2 - The Joshua Tree" sounds better (even at [the lower] 128 AAC level). For whatever reason the "The Joshua Tree" version contained in iTunes' "The Complete U2" comes off clearer (and louder?) than both the new Island remaster and the old/Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs version(s). Your money would be best spent to retain your previously purchased files and only chase after tracks 20, 22, 23, 24, and 25 as these tracks are indeed new to iTunes and are not in "The Complete U2" which should now be renamed the "Incomplete or Almost Complete U2" if you consider the mound of missing songs from compilations, b-sides, guest appearances etc. that are absent.

What Mastering Does:

1. Volume Level Maximization 2. Ensuring a Consistent Balance of Frequencies 3. Noise Reduction 4. Encoding 5. Error Checking This ensures the integrity of the data stream during CD duplication / replication at any CD manufacturing plant.

REMASTERING STINKS!!! DO NOT BUY THIS ALBUM!!!

THE SONIC FIDELITY OF THIS CLASSIC ALBUM, ONE OF THE GREATEST ALBUMS OF ALL TIME IS DESTROYED BY DIGITAL COMPRESSION!!! I JUST COMPARED EVERY SONG! NOT ONLY MYSELF BUT IN A BLIND HEADPHONE TEST WITH MY GIRLFRIEND WHO KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT MUSIC AND SHE PICKED THE ORIGINAL 1987 CD EVERYTIME! IF YOU BUY THIS - YOU WILL EXPERIENCE A SLIGHTLY LOUDER VOLUME, BUT YOU WILL LOSE CLARITY, SPACIOUSNESS, THE DELICATILY OF THE HIGHS AND LOWS AND DIGITAL COMPRESSION KILLS THE ORIGINAL SOUND THE ORGINAL PRODUCERS CREATED! HERE IS A QUOTE FROM AN ARTICLE "Music nostalgia is nothing new, but this is different. There are solid technical reasons why CDs mastered today sound inferior to those made 15 years ago. The engineers who make the "master" - the mix from which the CD is pressed - are under irresistible pressure to compromise sound quality.Tim Young masters albums at the Metropolis Studios in London. He has impeccable credentials, having worked with bands from the Clash and the Smiths back in the 1970s to Madonna, Iron Maiden and the Sugababes today. "Everyone's chasing immediate impact," he explains. "What happens is all the loud parts of the album have to be as loud as the opening track. So you get a fatiguing effect. There's no light and shade in it." EDUCATE YOURSELF! READ THIS ARTICLE... http://technology.guardian.co.uk/weekly/story/0,,1992325,00.html

Biografía

Género: Rock

Años de actividad: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

U2 se convirtió en una de las bandas de rock & roll más populares de los 80, famosa tanto por su sonido contagioso así como por sus grandilocuentes discursos sobre temas políticos y religiosos. Fueron "cruzados" del rock & roll en una época en que reinaban el pop de sintetizadores y el heavy metal. La banda logró mantener su popularidad en los 90 reinventándose deliberadamente como irónico grupo de pop rock influenciado por el dance; y pudieron confirmar su status como una de las bandas más populares...
