ACHTUNG BABY by U2

actung

The Joshua Three album turned Irish rockers U2 into a worldwide stadium band in 1987. After 2 years of non-stop touring Bono & his gang went to Berlin, as so many other artists did before and after, to reinvent themselves musically and mentally. New impulses from
a legendary – for wrong and good reasons as we know – city. Artistically an extraordinary place that inspired outstanding albums by David Bowie, Iggy Pop & Nick Cave among others. And it worked for U2 too! ACHTUNG BABY was/is without a shadow of a doubt their best record ever. New sound, new drive, new look. Big vibes, big tunes, big grooves! Magnum opus! An adventurous, inventive, electr-o-fying and no fillers/all killers album. The LP was released on 18 November 1991. Twenty-five years ago. Champagne! Here are three ace firecrackers to celebrate…
