Super Deluxe 10 disc (six CDs + four DVDs) edition including the original Achtung Baby album, the follow-up album, Zooropa, b-sides and re-workings of previously unheard material recorded during the Achtung Baby sessions. Four DVDs including "From The Sky Down", Zoo TV, all the videos from Achtung Baby plus bonus material. hardback book; and 16 art prints. Digitally remastered edition of the Irish quartet's groundbreaking 1991album, their seventh studio release overall. While the band had been successful before the release of Achtung Baby, nobody could predict the worldwide domination that followed. Features the hits 'Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses?', 'The Fly', 'One' and 'Even Better Than The Real Thing'.
Even though it was greeted at the time as U2's reinvention as a dance/rock post-modern revue, with a bit of post-Wall Berlin thrown in for luck, distance now shows that Achtung Baby is in fact a suite of extraordinarily perceptive and tender songs on the breakdown of the Edge's marriage. "Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses", "The Fly", "One", "So Cruel"--it's as if Bono shuffled into the studio and said "Er, Edge. Was it a bit like this?" And the Edge wept until his hat became soggy. U2 fans will argue until the end of "Until The End Of The World" which is the best album in the band's exemplary canon, but with Bono sounding like a scorched St Paul, the Edge augmenting those electrified sheets of sound with deft funk-flicks and producer Brian Eno keeping it spacious, hot and holy, chances are, this is it. --Caitlin Moran --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

Joshua Tree, Boy, The Unforgettable Fire. These are great U2 albums. This is where the slide into electronica started. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Sir Steven
In my opinion, Achtung Baby may have been U2's greatest of all time and certainly one of the best albums even released by any rock band. Read morePublished on June 25 2013 by S. Ciampa
