Product Description


The ill will that initially greeted Rattle and Hum--the follow-up to the band's massively successful Joshua Tree album--was due in large part to the bloated and self-important feature film that accompanied it, which showed the band as being simultaneously naive and pretentious as it "discovered" America. But as the film mercifully slips from memory, the music has remained, from the furious swirl of "Desire" and a clutch of live hits to insightful musical nods to heroes such as Bob Dylan, John Lennon, and Billie Holiday. Songs like "When Love Comes to Town", a supercharged blues duet with B.B. King, suggests the quartet knew more about America from listening to its music than Phil Joanou's unintentional mockumentary suggested. --Daniel Durchholz

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a strange record April 19 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It was good to hear some of U2's "Joshua Tree" material live. It was great to hear some unreleased/never heard material as well. The most annoying part was the carry over dialogue from the film. Listening to the interviewer try to "interview" the band is nothing short of painful.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Massive Than It Seems June 23 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
During the "Joshua Tree Tour", director Phil Joanou captured a massive amount of footage, to be sorted and used in a documentary about U2 and this tour. To quote Edge: "No one could really remember when it went from being this small project that we all knew what it was and could deal with it, to being this big thing, but at some point that shift occured." Indeed it did, and this documentary morphed into a massive project, resulting in a movie and eventual home video, and a new album, a double album of sorts, a mix of live material from the "Joshua Tree Tour" and brand new studio material.
As far as the live stuff is concerned, U2 are a phenomenal live band, so the live stuff is great. But some of the best live performances that were in the movie were left off the album(Streets, With Or Without You, Running..., and the powerful Sunday Bloody Sunday on the night of the Enniskillen bombing, featuring his now notorius 'f**k the revolution' speech). The best thing to come out of "Rattle And Hum" is the new material. 'All I Want Is You', 'Angel Of Harlem', and 'Desire' are classics, and are part of the live set to this day. The B.B. King collaberation, 'When Love Comes To Town' is a sore spot among U2 fans...some love it, some hate it, I think it's good but not great. Lesser-known gems from this record are 'Hawkmoon 269', 'Heartland', 'Love Rescue Me', and 'God Part II', and 'Van Dieman's Land', which is one of three songs in the U2 catalog to feature The Edge on lead vocals(the previous one was on "War" and entitled 'Seconds').
U2 recieved quite a bit of backlash when "Rattle And Hum" was released, labeled as arrogant and presumtious to put themselves in the rock pantheon of the Beatles and Dylan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rattle and Hum Oct. 21 2011
By Ms Dee
Format:Audio CD
Loved Rattle and Hum; unfortunately had to see my whole cd collection when I got sick. Played the heck out of it. Favorite song is Angel of Harlem. Good live album. Am not crazy about later stuff put out. I feel like Rattle and Hum was one of their best works. Am buying it again and will be buried with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Severely underated June 10 2006
Format:Audio CD
I bought this record when it came out a long time ago, but I still get goose bumps and break out in a sweat every time I listen to it. This is a great album, make no mistake. The power of the lyrics are directly channeled through the music. It's all raw emotions. My fave song is Bullet the Blue Sky. If you like U2, buy this album, listen to it a few times to let it sink in. It'll then start to hit you hard. It'll never let you go.

5.0 out of 5 stars U2's Energy is truly felt on this album! May 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
More often than not, you can only tell what kind of band you are listening to by seeing them in concert or by listening to a live recording. Rattle and Hum is a recording of various concerts in the same tour of U2 in the 80's just after the Joshua Tree. the energy is incredable!
The first track starts out with the cheering of the croud. Then you hear Bono say "This is the song Charles Manson stole from the Beatles...we're stealing it back." And then Edge plays the opening riffs to Helter Skelter. The hole album is an experiance. If you are a new comer looking for a good taste of U2, or an old fan looking for somthing classic, but unique- this is the album you've been praying for! "F*ck the revolution!"~Bono

2.0 out of 5 stars Mix of good and bad tunes. Feb. 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
I'm amazed how inconsistent this album is. Here you have one outstanding track (Heartland), some decent tracks (Angel of Harlem, Desire, All I Want Is You), a few mediocre tunes (When Love Comes To Town, Hawkmoon, God Pt. 2), and the rest is...plain crap, including poor live performances (a tuned down version of Pride, with no delay on guitar). Also why does Bono try to sound country in every song? You know what I mean, that frog in throat trick he employs. It sounds TERRIBLE. Two stars for being a double cd and ergo twice as expensive when instead it should have been separated into a live cd and a studio b-sides compilation.
