PRE-ORDER ANNIVERSARY EDITION OF ACHTUNG BABY

Twenty years ago, Bono described Achtung Baby as ‘the sound of four men chopping down The Joshua Tree’ while Jon Pareles of the New York Times wrote that ‘stripped-down and defying its old formulas, U2 has given itself a fighting chance for the 1990’s’. The album won a Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance and became one of the most significant records of the nineties and of U2’s career.

To mark twenty years since its 1991 release, an anniversary edition of U2’sAchtung Baby is due on October 31, 2011.
