Achtung Baby is a brilliant album but it's such a complex album that it's not one i loved right away. Having listened to this though, I knew how great U2 was and I had the faith in them to keep listening to it, and pretty soon I was hooked.
That's what a lot of fans who already had all their albums don't quite understand. They already know how great U2 is, they don't need this. This is a new fans cd.
Thats why I don't listen to it much anymore, (except for songs like Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill me and Miss Sarejevo, which I don't have) because I'm not a new fan anymore, but when I was, I was literally listening to it all the time.
This album isn't getting the reviews that it deserves. Thats why I give it a 5/5.
While most of the pre-1997 hits are not touched on here and thankfully unaltered on here, the singles from their vastly underrated "Pop" album are redone and these new versions of them particularly "Discotheque" are inferior to their original versions. Not that they're bad, just the originals are far better.
"Hold Me THrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me" is an awesome song from an awesome movie. It's the only great soundtrack song on this collection in my opinion. THe other one "Hands that Built America" is kinda boring in my opinion.
THis is a decent if seriously flawed album of their's. Worth having nonetheless
