EDITORS’ NOTES

U2’s fifth album cemented their status as the greatest rock band to rise out of the ’80s. Bono’s bell-like voice and The Edge’s ringing guitar lines were honed to a deceptively simple melodic perfection, bolstered by the rhythm section’s propulsive marches and airy atmospherics of producers Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois. They're firing on all cylinders here, attacking social barriers (“Where the Streets Have No Name”) and insipid politics (“Bullet the Blue Sky”), while making heartbreak sound anthemic (“With or Without You”). This 30th-anniversary Super Deluxe set includes new remixes, b-sides, and a stunning live set from Madison Square Garden in 1987.

Doing Geometry ,

I love the remaster, but miss the old staticky sound for some reason.

This albums great, and the remaster was well done. I just like the original version more.

Don't fix what isn't broken.
