Biography

U2 formed in 1978 after Larry Mullen pinned a 'musicians wanted' ad to the notice board at Dublin's Temple Mount School. Adam Clayton had discovered rock'n'roll as a thirteen year old, buying his first acoustic guitar and then talking his parents into buying him a bass guitar. 'It just sounded good to me. Deep and fat and satisfying.'
From the beginning, U2 were ... Read more in Amazon's U2 Store

For many "The Joshua Tree" is one of the finest rock records made. Others see it as overwrought and overly earnest. But this was a band with a conscience and who on the evidence of this record could write damn fine songs. After the bold experimentation of "The Unforgettable Fire", with its sprawling ambience produced by the winning partnership of Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno, "The Joshua Tree" was a more focussed affair, with the production more subtle and assured. The remastering on this re-issue, supervised by The Edge, brings out all the details and nuances in the Lanois/Eno soundscape. Just listen to the shimmering sound of The Edge's "infinite guitar" on the intro to "With Or Without You"! Never has it sounded so gorgeous!

The post-Joy Division sound of U2 showed a more classic rock feel on this album, partly due to the American viewpoint the band were aiming at. Though they would make more boundary pushing albums like "Achtung Baby" and "Zooropa", "The Joshua Tree" is a classic album of its type. In some ways it can be seen as part of a trilogy of albums around that time, all produced by Lanois. The others being Peter Gabriel's "So" and Robbie Robertson's self titled album. All shared a certain similar sound, feel and even personnel.

This re-issue is something quite special. The deluxe box edition is a thing of beauty. Containing the original album, another CD containing material recorded at the same sessions and a DVD containing a complete live performance, documentary and videos, each are housed in separate gatefold sleeves. There is also a cardboard folder containing photo prints and a thoroughly informative hardback book with essays by the likes of Brian Eno and The Edge.

By Mark Barry HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I remember it vividly. It was the summer of 1987, probably August, and I was standing in the HMV Megastore in Oxford Street in London browsing through their CD racks looking for something else to punish my long-suffering credit card with. Back then the 'video' was king. I mean the buggers were everywhere. MTV had them on rotation on our television sets at home all day and the more elaborate and expensive ones even made the news. 1987 was a year when a pop video was given as much credence as the release of the album it was promoting. And HMV was no different. The flagship shop had loads of black TV monitors hanging out of their Oxford Street ceiling covering every square inch of floor space in their huge new store. So I'm standing there in this busy Megastore browsing like everyone else. And then it happened.

On came the new U2 video for "Where The Streets Had No Name". It was filmed in California on top of a building with the band playing live without announcement while American street goers below simply stopped in their tracks and looked up in amazement. And so did we. We all stopped and we all looked up in amazement. It was the only time I've ever seen this. The entire music store stopped and looked up at the TV monitors - hooked instantly by this incredible song and this dog's bollox of a band. The tune creeps in - building, building, building - then it bursts out of the speakers with this stunning chiming trailblazing guitar work and Bono's impassioned growl and lyrics. It was mesmerizing. I remember looking around me and noticing people's smiling faces. No one was browsing anymore. And I remember thinking - my God - they really have hit the Global zeitgeist with this.
