Product Description

Critical review of U2's 1990 album 'Achtung Baby' featuring live and studio performances, rare behind the scenes footage, previously unseen photographs and comment from close compatriots of the band, U2 experts and archive interviews with the guys themselves..Also contains second film on DVD exploring what came next - 'Post Achtung!'

Product Description

At the dawn of the 90s, tensions in the U2 camp were fraught. The band fought about the direction they should take for their next project having received some harsh criticism for the backward looking Rattle & Hum a couple of years before. Bono & Edge were keen to tap into Alternative Dance Music and European Industrial landscapes while Mullen and Clayton wanted to continue with the sound that had assured their success for more than a decade already. When solutions were not readily forthcoming, the band even considered splitting up. But a communal belief in the power of the group to overcome such obstacles bought U2 back from this lowest of ebbs, the result of these discrepancies allowed U2 to offer up the strongest statement they had made to date. Changing the entire musical background in which they existed - it may be unfashionable to suggest now, but without this pivotal album laying a fair bit of groundwork for alternative music generally, it would be doubtful if the likes of Radiohead and Coldplay would have achieved quite so much - U2 had triumphed. Recognised today as one of the greatest albums ever produced, the first film in this two disc set looks back at the development, production, reception and aftermath of Achtung Baby and features interviews with the band and those closest to them, plus a host of other features making this programme the finest document yet to chart the album that saved U2 from extinction But this most classic of albums did nothing if not pave the way for what came in its wake, and disc two in the set covers the post-Achtung era - follow up projects, as well as their arrival in the second millennium. Over three hours in length across two discs, completed in digi-style packaging, this visual celebration of 20 years of Achtung Baby will remain the ultimate tribute to a modern classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE GREATEST ALBUNS OF ALL TIME!!!! 29 Mar 2012
By Rio Fluz„o - Published on
ACHTUNG BABY is without any doubt in my list of the MOST RELEVANT ALBUNS OF ALL TIME!!!This is a high quality album where i trully think ALL the songs ARE AMAZING!!!! UNTIL THE END OF THE WORLD, THE FLY, ACROBAT, EVEN BETTER THAN THE REAL THING.....These songs are sooooo brilliant! By this time, U2 incorporate a more funky spacey sound, which i think brings the best from THE EDGE...His guitars in ACHTUNG BABY are unique! BONO's lyrics are powerful here! BONO bring some true poetry to music here...Well, this is really a classic album! ENJOY!
