Thematically, Achtung Baby is darker, more introspective, and at times more flippant than their previous work. Seeking inspiration from German reunification, U2 began recording Achtung Baby at Berlin's Hansa Studios in October 1990.

U2 - Achtung Baby (1991).

Achtung Baby was widely regarded as a sonic and visual reinvention of the band: a step too far in some territories, where Adam's nude image on the sleeve was covered with an appropriately fixed X or clover. At U2's request, Achtung Baby was the first album by a major act to be released in two eco-friendly packages - the jewel box (without the long box attachment) and the cardboard Digi-Trak

Few bands as far into their career as U2 have recorded an album as adventurous or fulfilled their ambitions quite as successfully as they do on Achtung Baby, and the result is arguably their best album.

That is not the case with the 2018 remaster, issued on vinyl, in a remaster that was directed by The Edge, with remastering engineering by Scott Sedillo, and the Audio Master Transfer directed by Declan Gaffney. Also included is a single double sided sheet with the album lyrics. The vinyl is accompanied by a digital download card which will allow users to download the tracks included on the vinyl, in wave format.

Designed and produced explicitly as the sound of a band cutting down the Joshua Tree, Achtung Baby was U2’s opening statement at the start of the 90s. Rejecting the earnest rock and roll of their mega-hit The Joshua Tree and their 80s work in general, Achtung Baby created a new sound that would follow the band for the next three albums (Achtung Baby, Zooropa, and Pop). Embracing electronic dance music, the album presented itself as a rebuke of the past and the start of a new chapter of the band. The album spawned several iconic hits (One, Mysterious Ways, Even Better Than the Real Thing) and the album’s track listings have become permanent live staples for the band (with Ultra Violet (Light My Way) and Love Is Blindness in particular becoming the default final song played live at concerts).

Achtung Baby is the seventh studio album by rock band U2. Produced by Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno, it was released on 19 November 1991 on Island Records. Achtung Baby and the subsequent Zoo TV Tour were central to the group's 1990s reinvention, which replaced their earnest public image with a more lighthearted and self-deprecating one. Background. U2's 1987 album The Joshua Tree brought them critical acclaim and commercial success, but their high exposure precipitated a critical backlash, whereby they were accused of being grandiose, over-earnest, and self-righteous.

The album after Achtung Baby, 1993’s Zooropa, is also being reissued on double vinyl, as is The Best of 1980-1990. All three are due on 27 July 2018. U2. Achtung Baby 2LP vinyl. What I would REALLY love to see is the Passengers album re-released, and perhaps subsequently reappraise. t truly deserves a wider audience. Fingers crossed for those, but looking forward to these.

I have one for sale if interested. Just message me.
Mave Mave
Does this edition come with inserts or does (w/ the printed lyrics for example) or does it just come with the inner sleeve?
Nalmezar Nalmezar
I think this sounds great. I have a basic turntable with nice speakers but their is a discernible difference between this and my old CD. Bernie Grundman consistently does beautiful remasters.
Ffleg Ffleg
Anyone have the first Achtung Baby cd for sale? Mine is defective. Please comment with any info you might have.
Mmsa Mmsa
Someone has this version with the Adam Clayton photo not naked or censored? I hear that the naked photo was censored later on this issue but I don't have any more information.
Zeus Wooden Zeus Wooden

Rigiot Rigiot
Does anyone else think the bass level in "Trying to throw your arms around the world" is way too heavy? It took some serious EQing on my system to have the neighbors stop knocking my door down!
Rias Rias
This release sounds very good and the packaging is absolutely beautiful but let‘s be honest: if you already own the original pressing you may skip this reissue without any regrets as the original version sounds great as well.
Ochach Ochach
Agree with your comment. I have both and may sell the reissue. I don't find one to be that much better than the other and with limited room the reissue may not make the cut.
Siratius Siratius
Pah! I didn't get any inserts. And mine is definitely a first pressing - I won it on a Radio One phone-in a week or so prior to release. They assumed I'd want a CD and were surprised when I asked for vinyl :)
ZEr0 ZEr0
With around 15 min per side, the cutting could be much louder which would be much better. The level of the cutting is something you find on records with around 25 min per side.
Wooden Purple Romeo Wooden Purple Romeo
I am not enthusiastic about the sound of the vinyl. It sounds a bit pinched or compressed. There is sufficient bass but I miss dynamics and it is not sparkling. I am not sure if this is specifically related to the vinyl, too many songs per side, or to the mastering. I am not able to compare it with the CD sound.
Vudogal Vudogal
This is an excellent sounding reissue of a classic album. Thank you!!
Jediathain Jediathain
Originally released at the height of the CD era, Achtung Baby has been much sought after on vinyl for many years. With only limited edition vinyl releases it has also been very expensive to obtain, until now. Finally! Was it worth the wait? The original CD was pretty good, and still packs a punch, however as you would expect, the vinyl opens up a whole new level of insight across a much wider soundstage. There's a deep and rich bass, and a vivid mid range and for the most part it is fabulous, however sometimes unpacking a dense production style doesn't work so well. So Cruel and Mysterious Ways probably benefit the most, but on occasions by spreading the soundstage impact is reduced and the drums sound a bit thin in the mix. Overall though i'm delighted to have this, and the artwork presentation is top notch.
Mr_Jeйson Mr_Jeйson
Anyone else notice this version seems under-produced. I have to jack up the volume on my receiver or else it's very soft. Sounds great when it is jacked up. Just have to remember to drop my volume before I play anything else or I blow my ears out.
Elastic Skunk Elastic Skunk
Missed oportunity, IMO. Most of the songs are congested, the channels and instruments poorly separated. Sonic vomit. It seems like the only track they really worked on is Mysterious Ways. I too have long hoped for this to be repressed as the original pressings are inaccessible. Why do they continue to boast about Berni Grundman mastering when most of what I've heard from them is mediocre at best. This entire album is quality songcraft. I think, U2's best since Unforgettable Fire. They should have stepped up to the plate and delivered on every song on this album. They deserve it. Saving grace, Love is Blindness is also well mastered.
Nidora Nidora
I agree. This pressing is borderline better than the original, and if it sounds crappy on your end, it ain’t the record’s fault.
Getaianne Getaianne
If you think "most' of what you've heard from them is mediocre, your comment holds no weight with me. Bernie's work on all the Peter Gabriel 45rpm Clarity vinyl releases from Classic Records, the all analogue Zeppelin cuts for Classic using the un-eQ'd original stereo master tapes and his work on the first four all analogue cut Dire Straits albums for WB in 2009 speaks for itself, at the end of the day you may not like every title and some artists will make requests the mastering engineer will follow even if they don't happen to enjoy that (ie - loudness), but the line about "most" and "mediocre" suggests this comment is perhaps more malicious than informed.
It's so easy It's so easy
I would echo exactly what colin.brown1978 said, nothing to add apart from that.
Banal Banal
Nobody boasts about Bernie Grundman Mastering, their track record speaks for itself. If you find this remastering congested I'd re-check your audio system, something is wrong.
Sha Sha
Fantastic repress, worth every cent. Buy it, enjoy it. Exceptional sound.
Phalaken Phalaken
Another upvote, I don't have any older pressings to compare to, but don't feel like I need to... this sounds excellent!
Tholmeena Tholmeena
I would agree with other reviews, I have the original U.K. pressing and this is a much fuller sounding record with a lot more overall emphasis, especially on the lower end. Sounds fantastic! And... comes with poly lined sleeves as well as printed! Thank you!
Hallolan Hallolan
I have to agree - this is a very good remaster and repressing. I have the 20th anniversary JT as well, also an excellent job. Both these two records for me were their really big stand-outs and captured both sides of the band; pre and post super stardom.
Llallayue Llallayue
Hey, the download is WAV (I think 16 bit). The whole download was about 587mb if that helps.
Ynneig Ynneig
Good to know! I've waited for a proper reissue (remaster) for so long. Glad this and Zooropa are spread over 2 lps. I've heard the remaster via Apple Music and it does seem more open...wider soundstage than the original cd. Getting this on vinyl is a no brainer. Does anyone know if the download voucher is for lossless (16 or 24 bit wav) or just mp3s? Hoping for hi res...
Lestony Lestony
Very good pressing. Not a gatefold, but the sound is so fantastic.And "naked Adam" isn't naked anymore !

Does anybody know who pressed the vinyl? Not sure if I’d purchase it without knowing beforehand.

Maybe the problem lies with your CD playback chain? I have the original vinyl, the new 2018 vinyl and the original CD and my go to is still the original CD, it's a terrific mastering from before the loudness wars reared their ugly heads and the overall sonics are stupendously good.Just my $0.02, there are plenty of releases I prefer vinyl for, plenty where the SACD is the best, some where even a Blu-ray Audio rules the day, I love being format agnostic. This does appear to be GZ Media not Optimal, perhaps people answered without bothering to look at their records?I don't doubt someone prefers their new vinyl release over the original CD, but to suggest the CD was capable of being "blown away" isn't a statement I can resolve on my system.

No, it was cut by Chris Bellman with assistance from Scott Sedillo. BG had nothing to do with this one.

This reissue has a GZ matrix, whereas Zooropa has that of Optimal...
Frostdefender Frostdefender
Optimal in Germany-- best version I've ever heard. Blows away the CD!!!

To clarify my initial post, Chris Bellman cut the lacquer for this one. Done at Bernie Grundman's studio.
Qusserel Qusserel
To my knowledge. Both Chris Bellman and Bernie Grundman were involved with this reissue.

Have original european press in nm condition and now the remastered vinyl. same as All that you can't leave behind. fantastic and subtle remastering for vinyl. as mentioned before, clean and open but not too loud and compressed. just as if the "old" masterpiece got a little bit freed from dust so you can enjoy the patina even more. the kind of remaster i really like!!! absolutely worth the money. just a gatefold would have been nice but that's the only thing if i have to say something critical
Blackseeker Blackseeker
Sound is perfect and clean, not a gatefold but comes with quality sleeves as well as original sleeves. I've wanted this album on vinyl for so many years.

Hows the pressing quality of this compared to an EU original?
Aver Aver
I think it is comparable to the original in sound. I had my original on last week and I am playing this one right now. Cons: not gatefold and they censored the back (not that I care, but the original wasn't).Pros: You don't have to pay $100 for the original, it sounds about the same to me, you own the albumI think overall the original and the new pressing are similar. There might be a bit more punch to the latest, but I would have to go and listen to my original after to compare.... its really a toss up for me.
Era Era
its not a gatefold but a single sleeve that holds the 2 LPs and a booklet in the same format

This is about to be re-released on a 2LP set!

has anyone sold one with the 16 art inserts? can't see any that have sold anywhere with these?

Is the version of Zooropa included in this set also remastered?

I’ve loved this band since seeing them on a tv show in the late 70’s in N. Ireland but as U2 records go.. this is shite... sorry.!

I just got this pressing, finally after years of wanting it.I can't get over how much better the LP is than the CD I have; it's like night and day. There is more depth to the LP and it has that extra 'kick' in it.
Androrim Androrim
I'd be more moderated than other comments,yes the sound is bad,but only at the end of sides (fangle effect due to bad pressing)
Dordred Dordred
Wow, this sounds really nice. I always thought the sound of both the initial CD version and the remastered CD version were much to dense and compressed, surely owed to the very "fat" multi-track production. This vinyl version sounds much more open and wide, drums and bass guitar i.e. on "So cruel" are so alive and kicking.

My Dvd of the Sydney concert will not play in any kind of player. I bought it from Best Buy in Michigan U.S. It says that it's PAL. Any other Americans have this problem?

Surely a multi region DVD player can be found for peanuts nowadays? €25 - €30 for one in Europe.

Horsecrap, just like all bootlegs - avoid and wait for the album to be reissued again on its 30th anni

this Vinyl is original or remastered ? i'll wait an asnwerLorenzo
Orevise Orevise
It is from 1991 so, it's a bit too early for being a remasterr as it is the original vinyl.
Ieslyaenn Ieslyaenn
Very bad pressing with many optical bubbles and sound is bad too, sometimes skips. One of the worst pressing i ever seen.

Unbelievable SOUND! Bernie Grundman's vinyl mastering - adventurous remixes. Great warm & brilliant sound - high volumes. Housed in a beautiful box including paper cover + inner sleeves + 4 vinyls (two of them in blue color). This 20th anniversary vinyl release album sounds 10 times better to my ears.
fr0mTheSkY fr0mTheSkY
Picked this up at HMV on its release and couldn't have been happier , as you said 10 times better, maybe 11.

Agreed... On the whole of side one, there's this soft "shwoosh" sound with every spin of the record....

For those of you who might want this, Easy Street Records in West Seattle has a used copy for sale - asking price is $400 which is too rich for my blood even though I would LOVE to own this.....

This is not the mexican pressing of 1991. This is a re-issue from 2000-2003. That early pressing has no picture disc.

Some of the remixes in this box set are actually re-edited remixes, not the original versions of the remixes.

The slight remastering. This 20th anniversary edition has been remastered under the direction of The Edge. Apparently, it was decided to retain the original character of the sound as much as possible, although it had been having a pronounced digital shade. Perhaps, just such character of the sound was used as an additional tool of expressing the album concept. Nevertheless, some audio characteristics were slightly improved as music perspective and music detail, mainly on treble and on low levels of music signal. By using high quality audio system, you can really hear such details on this CD, which are missing on previous edition. However, the main problem remains the same. There is a lack of clarity, lightness, crispness and air supply in this recording. Also it can be added that the CD booklet does not contain any additional jubilee information with the exception of one page of credits. Hopefully, the next anniversary edition will be issued with improved quality.

U2 never was a rock'n'roll band in the early Stones sense of the genre, they were and are a pop band. Their early records do sound like the 80`s, little cheesy but very popular. Good music, reaches far, and carry mild political "soft riot" messages. It works. U2 is purifying music, puts you in a nice contemplative mood, it flows and you're feeling good.Every old band went through changes in their career to update software and hardware. Depeche Mode is a good example or the U2. I grew up on my dad's early hard rock tapes went through goa and now into experimental electronica, I do like this electro-pop-rock U2, same little cheese as in the 80's but rich. So I don't see the point blaming them for playing popular music. It's not politics after all, being a populist in music, if it's honest, is totally acceptable. U2 sounds true, it's genuine, honest music. My favorite song on this album is Acrobat. it's simple, powerful, emotional, all you need from the modern Western Pop-Zen

No, they are a rock band, not a pop band. Micheal jackson, katy perry, madonna, etc are pop! So stop your nonsense

Very Rare Venezuelan LP with Sono-Rodven labels.

One of the most overrated rock albums of all time. I just can't get into this no matter how hard I try. One of the biggest let-downs for me are the lyrics. There's just so very little substance contained in them. I consider "The Fly" the best track here, but its lyrics are just throwaway. Even as late as the Joshua Tree, U2's stories had political and social depth, though the pretentiousness had started creeping in by then. But this album is almost full-blown pretense. Overplayed, nauseating crap like "One" signaled the end of meaningful commentary.Musically, there's too much electronics; they were never a synth band. What makes their early albums enjoyable now is that they don't sound like 80s albums -- they're pure rock and roll. And although Achtung Baby does not exactly sound 20 years old, it still sounds more dated than their earliest efforts, mainly due to the instrumentation and production.

If you haven't closed the door on Achtung Baby, you might take a look at Steve Catanzarite's entry in the 33 1/3 series on the album. http://333sound.com/2011/07/28/bono-steve-catanzarites-33-13-on-achtung-baby/ It explores the album as about the Fall of man (the title 'Adam' was considered for the album) as The Edge was going through his divorce.
Goldfury Goldfury
Actually, I couldn't disagree more. Achtung Baby, while a departure from their earlier works in terms of its style, nevertheless kept the band's political and social relevance and potency, especially with tracks like One, while redefining what a U2 album could sound like. It is one of the best albums they have done before or since, and one of the coolest also.

Hello TeenageFC,grow up. TeenageFCIf you don't like it...don't commentThat's a stupid attitude.Personally, I disagree with Globe199's comment, but yet it's totally legit to voice their opinion. And it might be useful to some users.Your comment, however, is like saying: "If you don't like a comment...don't reply".

This is an excellent LP from the 90's not only for the new electro (dirty) Rock sound of U2 but also for the artwork by photographer Anton Corbijn using saturation of colors, opposition of cold and hot. Black and white are also submitted to such treatments. If U like U2, get a good original 1991 copy (black vinyl) and enjoy the sound and the picture of this great U2 collector!
CopamHuk CopamHuk
Would you say it's worth paying $100 for NM copy?My favorite U2 albums are this and The Unforgettable Fire.I need this, but wasn't sure if I should just wait for a repress. Thanks

The colour vinyl editions in yellow, red or transparent vinyl are counterfeits and sound like it too.
Arakus Arakus
Cover (almost photocopy), vinyl & sound are so pooooor....
Lanionge Lanionge
turns out I have the yellow one, and this explains a lot. I always thought the record itself was poorly made and the sound was bad, so being a counterfeit explains a lot.
Wel Wel
Absolutely! I owned a red one, sounded terrible.Was also confirmed by the U2 fanclub and a german U2 website owner.
