The Joshua Tree Remastered Super Deluxe Edition was listed as "NEW". It was clearly repackaged in shrink wrap and the box was covered in greasy fingerprints. The box had 3 major dents in it. The special edition lithographs had been cherry picked through. There was supposed to be 6 - mine had 2.

The remastering sounds great. The B Sides bonus disc was great. The DVD was great. So kudos to U2 for doing it right.

Shame on this seller for not being honest.

Believe you me, I know music so I don't want to get a lot of angry "you're an idiot" responses. I don't get it. When I say "it," I mean this fascination with U2. I've listened to the Joshua Tree since I was just a kid and even as a child I could tell the band was terrible. The Edge is an overrated guitarist and Bono's sappy lyrics and complaining voice are nore than I can handle. U2=most overrated band in history. I hear they are good live performers but I don't care because the music is ludicrous. Pick up something from the Velvet Underground, early Bowie, or the Band if you want some truly compelling rock music.

Ya know, i don't get it. What do people see in this band of garralous babbling morons? sure there albums reflect the politics of blah blah blah, but the music is so repetitive and dull, it puts me into a hypnotic trans which probably everyone else has been droned into. Bono and his gang are severly overatted and dull to the ear. Not to mention that there hit singles "still haven't found what i'm looking for" and "In the name of love" sound exactly the same. If I write anymore I'll get a headache thinking about why these guys are so popular

"greatest album of all-time." "most soulful band of all time." blah blah blah. all i can say in response to the idiotic hype around this band is a simple:no. they WISH they could have been the clash. Bono's a joke. sure, they HAD a message, what happened to it now? lost it on the way to the bank i suppose.

yup...although most people attribute this being their best work, it is probably the most boring...the lyrics are as bad as Tori Amos and the sound quality is worse Dokken.
Steer clear from this rusty, over-hyped album.

All this album does is mark the beginning of U2's commercial era and puts them into the "sell out" category. I'm so glad The Smiths/Depeche Mode/even The Police didn't follow the same path.

The beginning of the end for U2. This release marks their decent into selling out. If you want a real U2 cd, go get Boy or War, youll thank me later.

"The Joshua Tree" is without a doubt the worst album in the history of rock by the worst band in rock. Not even the Beatles are as annoying as U2.

Nothing repulses me more than Bono's delicate voice. U2's music makes me nauseous. The simple bass and drums with typical, safe rock and roll guitar are wretched. It's tailor made for yuppie hipsters that need to be told what type of music to listen to.
"The Joshua Tree" hit the big time when I was in junior high and it was in heavy rotation on the radio and MTV. I remember walking into my junior high and seeing a sea of identical "The Joshua Tree" concert tee shirts on the backs of the yuppie kids. First, there was "With Or Without" you that makes my blood boil because of Bono's high-pitched "whooooooo". Then, there is "Where The Streets Have No Name" which is the most pointless song ever written. "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" is equally pointless and very, very boring.
The worst part is, every time I hear a song off "The Joshua Tree" it gets stuck in my head and it's almost impossible to purge for the rest of the day. If I want to become extremely angry or frustrated all I need to do hear a song off this album. After being tortured by this music, I need to listen to Slayer to calm down.
The icing on the cake for my contempt for U2 is that the rock critics say U2's early records are post-punk. They DO NOT even come close to being any type of punk. The rock critic saying that U2 has punk roots is like saying that Britney Spears has heavy metal roots; it's just ridiculous. Maybe because U2 is from Ireland makes the rock critics think they are punk rooted. Who knows?
