I'm a big U2 fan, but one odd thing about them is that I almost never like their albums until a few years have passed...seems like they take some time to grow on me. Probably because they are pretty good at creating a new sound with each album.

Achtung Baby was no exception, but looking back now I'd probably consider it their 3rd best album and the end of their 3-album creative peak of Unforgettable Fire-Joshua Tree-Achtung Baby (of course I've left out Rattle & Hum, which I actually quite like but wasn't really a true studio album per se in my mind).

If you have chance, check out the DVD from the Boston concert on the All That You Can't Leave Behind tour. The version of The Fly that they play is the best I've ever heard. Better yet, just find it on YouTube.

I'm a bit agnostic about U2, but find The Edge's guitar work to really keep me listening.

I've always liked their tours. Rock needs a little spectacle.

Have you seen the documentary, It Might Get Loud? I would highly recommend it. It provides great insight into Edge's thought processes and also features the briliant Jimmy Page talking about some of Zeppelin's recordings. Cool

Agreed. Very unique style and by far the best thing about U2. The very first time I heard I Will Follow was an eye opener.
