5.0 out of 5 stars Costly, but worth it for the fans, 6 Dec 2011
This review is from: Achtung Baby 20th Anniversary Über Deluxe Box Set (Audio CD)
Became a U2 fan because of Achtung Baby, so this set really was a self-indulgent treat. Well packaged on arrival, and very heavy, I unwrapped each layer of this set and spent hours on a trip down memory lane to 20 years ago looking at countless photographs, posters and reading the reprint of Propaganda within the extensive printed materials.

There is a code that enables you to access all of the digital media inside online so that you don't need ever to open the CDs - and so many tracks to listen to. My favourite is actually "Kindergarten" - the pre-worked songs of Achtung Baby. All so familiar, but still so far from the final masterpiece.

The DVDs make for hours of interesting viewing too, from the rockumentarys of the time such as MTV and the Outside Broadcast specials, to the recently released 'From The Sky Down' review of the Achtung Baby sessions. My gripe? Why not include Blu-Ray versions where possible as some items available separately are in this format.

Clearly one for the fans, they'll be delighted with ths and will go missing from family and friends for days.
