Watch more TV,

This review is from: Achtung Baby (Audio CD)Be in no doubt; this is the ultimate U2 album. December 31st 1989, Dublin; U2 announce on stage that it's 'the end of something for U2. We just have to go and dream it all up again'. They succeeded. Reappearing on the world stage in 1991, they released Achtung Baby... From the opening of Zoo Station with it's dramatic use of stereo sound, through the dancy Even Better Than The Real Thing (watch the video if you get the chance), it's gritty guitars and punchy vocals, with Larry and Adam providing a powerful rhythm. 'One' is one of their best songs ever, and a popular listen for those in need of solice everywhere.
The album continues, with not a single moment letting it down. The Fly and Mysterious Ways are two further highlights, but really this whole album is a joy and a pleasure. They invented irony in music, and this album shows it off. There's a full spectrum of slow and fast songs, quiet and loud; a wonderfully diverse album.
This album has not dated in 9 years, and possibly never will. It's U2's best album, and one of the best albums ever written. Make sure you listen to it sometime.
And if you want more, try the Zoo TV video - an audio-visual spectacular...
