5.0 out of 5 stars Mainstream lift off,no longer a cult band!, 12 Sept. 2010
This review is from: The Unforgettable Fire (Remastered - Super Deluxe Edition) (Audio CD)
This Brilliant album HAS got better and better!I originally got this on cassette in 1984 as a 14 year old boy.Pride was a huge hit and was played on the radio also,which was a big deal in 1984.Footage of U2 on the telly was even rarer at the time no MTV europe back then or VH1!Compared to the 1st 3 U2 albums, Pride and Wire most sound like those early albums.Textures,atmospheres different rythmn patterns are to the fore,all done in a powerful and melodic way.This album may take a few spins ,but is definitely worth the effort as there are some fabulous songs on here Homecoming,Bad,Promenade and the title track itself ,to this day probably contains Bonos greatest ever vocal,which is some statement as his voice on this album is awesome throughout!There is a clarity with the mix and production that U2 hadnt previously had and Larry & Adam are right up there. Only 4th of July and Elvis & America leave me cold and seem a bit filler,otherwise this is inspired! The 2nd disc contains stuff you can find elsewhere ,however a finished version of Disappearing Act is here,extended version of Pride and my favourite a Lanois inspired remix of A Sort of Homecoming ,is an unashamed 4 minutes of absolute joy,which a U2 fan MUST own.The DVD is a slight disappointment,again some of the content here is available elsewhere and theyve missed a trick by NOT including the short set from 1986's Self Aid gig,however there is a little footage from 86's Amnesty tour and 85's Croke Park,pity its not a full set.That said, any U2 fan should own some version of The Unforgettable Fire,totally essential!
