When listening to this album, one can definitely hear the progression of the band's talent. When you compare it to their earlier work like Boy it's a giant leap forward. Like their previous albums, it is an enjoyable listening experience. The digital remastering has improved the sound quality which is an added plus. U2 fans need to have this as part of their collection.

I own all of U2's albums, and all of the remastered editions as well. While I love the beautiful booklets accompanying these re-issues, and they all sound good, I haven't noticed a HUGE amount of sound improvement. Not that I'm complaining, but "WAR" for instance, still sounds a little "shrill" (to my ears at least). "Unforgettable Fire" is the U2 album most noticeably improved with the new mastering. "A Sort Of Homecoming" has a nice "roundness" to the sound and mix which the previous CD release lacked. There are even "incidental noises" which can be heard now that I never noticed before on the previous edition. Things like the odd cable buzz etc. actually add to the CD. U2 were, after all, recording fairly "live" in a castle. These "imperfections" really take you right into the recording session. These noises, I should add, are really only at heard discreetly at the start of certain tracks. The sound is GREAT. I have absolutely no complaints with this disc.
On another note, I've always felt that "Unforgettable Fire" was sandwiched between two rather celebrated U2 efforts "War" and "The Joshua Tree". For this reason I've often felt it's somewhat overlooked in the catalogue. True, "Pride" was a big hit, but listening back to this album now I realize how much artistic "gold" I had overlooked. "Bad" is absolute classic U2, "MLK" is beautiful, and "Unforgettable Fire" is another haunting piece. Basically, I've been most impressed with this particular U2 reissue. I'm really glad such an important artistic milestone for the band has now been given a proper release on CD.

While some may say that War really pushed the band into the spotlight, it was this album that allow them to expand world-wide especially after their Live Aid appearance where Bono goofed by spending too much time during Bad cutting their setlist from 3 tracks to 2. If it wasn't for this album, The Joshua Tree may not have been so huge on it's release. The album itself is a bit of a departure from their gritty rock, heading more towards a US orientated album [Pride, MLK, A Sort Of A Homecoming].

The Unforgettable Fire Limitred Box Set will feature the remastered album and a second CD featuring bonus audio material, including two previously unheard tracks from the Slane Castle sessions: 'Yoshino Blossom', and 'Disappearing Act' (a track which the band recently completed).

The set will also include DVD including music videos, a documentary, unreleased live footage from the Amnesty International Conspiracy of Hope Tour in 1986, a 56 page hardback book with liner notes by The Edge, Brian Eno, Danny Lanois, Bert Van de Kamp and Niall Stokes, and 5 photographic prints. [Some were hoping for a UF era concert or the Live Aid footage.]

Maybe not as essential as The Joshua Tree box set, The Unforgettable Fire being a less accessible album (and, consequently, less popular than it's 1987 followup), but still an absolute must for fans of U2's work with the Eno-Lanois production duo. This was the first album recorded by U2 with the duo, which would later go on to producing some of the band's most popular albums, including The Joshua Tree and 1991's Achtung Baby.

The remastered edition of the original 1984 album is highly superior soundwise to the original CD edition. Lanois had worked very closely with drummer Larry Mullen in the studio, and all the subtlety and detail in the drum tracks is more evident here than on any other U2 recording. The Unforgettable Fire has always been one of my favourite U2 albums, I've listened to it a lot over the past 25 years, and I must admit that I had never paid as much attention to the drumming as I feel compelled to do when I listen to this version of the album. Larry Mullen fans will not believe how clear and detailed the sound is!

The bonus CD, as with all of U2's remastered box sets, contains all the singles, b-sides and outtakes from the 1984-85 experimental phase that served as transition between the more accessible War and Joshua Tree albums. The scope of the band's musical experimentation becomes even more evident when confronted with these complete recordings. Included here are all the tracks that were released on the Wide Awake in America EP (1985) and on the various versions of the Pride and Unforgettable Fire singles. A special mention goes to an alternate version of A Sort of Homecoming, featuring African rhythms and Peter Gabriel on back vocals!! A completely different song, like nothing U2 has ever recorded either before or since!

I only recently heard U2's song Bad, which was used at the beginning and ending of Angelina Jolie's film "Taking Lives", so i decided to order this remastered album and was I ever shocked that I loved every single song. The remastering is excellent, he didn't jack up the volume to the point where it is unlistenable. I am not a U2 fan at all but this album is a masterpiece.
