5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the best U2 Album, 6 Aug. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: War - Remastered (Audio CD)
It was hearing "New Year's Day" on the radio nearly 25 years ago that first switched me onto U2. I rushed out and bought "War" on tape and played it everyday for months (student days !).

With this remastering, one of U2's best albums becomes even better. The remastering gives us a crisper cleaner sound particularly noticeable through much clearer vocals. Every song is improved by this treatment and it is wonderful to hear the lyrics properly on 40, Drowning Man, Sunday Bloody Sunday and the other songs. On "Seconds" Adam Clayton's bass is emphasised turning this from a fairly dull filler track to a really enjoyable piece. "Drowning Man" is also vastly improved, though, sadly, clearer lyrics can't really improve the second-rate "Refugee", "Red Light" and "Surrender".

I decided not to buy the deluxe version of this remastering - four versions of "New Year's Day" and three of "Two Hearts" are not really worth an extra tenner for me.

This was my first U2 album and my favourite for many years. I think this remastering lifts it back to the top spot in my mind (at least until "The Unforgettable Fire" gets the treatment). Brilliant.
