In anticipation of the upcoming 20th anniversary re-release (and gargantuan money sink opportunities) of U2's Achtung Baby!, Q Magazine (UK) is issuing their December issue with a bundled CD of covers of every track by big name stars. You can find a couple of them now for listening online -- Damien Rice doing One, Garbage doing Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses, and Jack White doing Love Is Blindness.

The full covers album will be available October 25, but the CD will (reportedly) only be bundled with UK shipments of the magazine. Order a single copy here if you live in the appropriate areas of the globe, or find it at your local newsstand. (Those outside the UK will have to find alternate methods of obtaining the tracks).

Also currently-available Achtung Baby! madness -- From The Sky Down, the film festival circuit documentary about the recording of the album which is part of some of the higher priced anniversary sets, and which will be making its Showtime premiere on October 29. In 6 parts: 1 2 3 4 5 6.

Bonus: An apparent leak of a new U2 track from earlier this year: Light Speed. Whether this will ever actually appear in any form on an upcoming album remains to be seen.

When the U2 2-disc 'Best Of' came out 10 or so years ago, I would say that I didn't need a U2 best-of, as I already owned Achtung Baby.

I'm rather excited for this.

Wow wow wow wow.....I need this CD of covers.

My favorite cover of One is by R.E.M. - Mr. Rice's cover here is pretty good, too.

I've got the Super Deluxe on pre-order. (The Uber is just a bit too uber.)

Achtung Baby changed my musical life. It was one of the first CDs I ever bought, based purely on the album art. I'd vaguely heard of U2 before, but since I was mostly a classical music snob before then, I wasn't all that familiar with them. From those first discordant chords on Zoo Station to Love is Blindness's haunting conclusion, I was fucking mesmerized. There's not a dud on the entire album.

If you're a U2 fan and especially if you're an AB fan, you need need need to read U2 At The End of the World. Amazingly personal and intimate stories of U2 throughout the creation of AB and then ZooTV, Zooropa, etc.

And thanks for reminding me, I'd gotten a copy of From the Sky Down but I haven't watched it yet.

However...and I've thought this a couple of times in posts lately... lately, the 20th anniversary of [X] album/movies/video game/etc. really reminds me how genuinely fucked up life was 20 years ago*, even when I didn't know it. And yes, a lot of people -- probably most, maybe all -- can say that about their high school years, it's just that, though I love these albums/movies/video games/etc., they can still be really weird reminders of what one was feeling at the time -- even before you do the math, you'll always know when X came out because of where you were at in your life.

* But as they're saying these days, kids, it gets better. And even if it doesn't, as you get older, the years just blur together.

This was played in heavy rotation during my university days... Probably the only U2 album I still regularly listen to.

Obligatory comment about feeling old, as I still think of Achtung Baby as new, late-era U2 and remember lots of discussions with friends (after college!) about whether it was a good direction or they had finally jumped the shark after years of good records, and eventually deciding it was pretty good.

But I didn't ever bother with anything after that. So anyway, I'm old. These covers sound pretty cool though.

I am even further in the "feeling old" camp than freecellwizard - I wasn't even aware that Achtung Baby! was considered a "classic" U2 album at all, as I only remember it as "that one they did after they got way too famous". Looking at the track listing, I might recognize a few more songs if I heard them, but the only one I know how it goes is "Mysterious Ways".

Hippybear's earlier writing about Achtung Baby on Metafilter got me to check out the album a few months back. I had put it in the same "too famous" camp as Curious Artificer and never really listened to it as it's own work rather than a collection of singles. I really like it now, and hear a lot more nuance and bitterness, especially in One, which is now a go to sad morning headphone song for me. (Hippybear's also turned me onto other music I had previously dismissed- his comments about music are insightful and personal, check his comment history. I was just rocking Barry Manilow today thanks to his recommendations in the Meatloaf thread.) So thanks for this post HB.

I've never really understood the appeal of U2. Never connected with them at all, but damned if that Uber Deluxe box isn't cool.

Uber Deluxe Box: a magnetic puzzle tiled box which will contain: 6 CDs including the original Achtung Baby album, the follow-up album, Zooropa, B-sides, remixes and re-workings of previously unheard material recorded during the Achtung Baby sessions. 4 DVDs including From The Sky Down, Zoo TV:Live From Sydney, all the videos from Achtung Baby plus bonus material. There will also be the Achtung Baby double vinyl album plus 5 clear 7" vinyl singles in their original sleeves, 16 art prints taken from the original album sleeve, an 84-page hardback book, a copy of Propaganda magazine, 4 badges, a sticker sheet, and a pair of Bono's trademark 'The Fly' sunglasses.

I mean, stickers, a puzzle box, sunglasses? Awesome.

I don't think they were trumpeting media saturation as a good thing necessarily. They were talking about broadcast, which is mostly one-way communication. ZooTV is eerily prescient of things like the barrage of 24-hour cable news networks and 500+ channel TV packages.

I was a big U2 fan from the beginning and by Joshua Tree thought that they could do no wrong. But I was pretty "meh" on Rattle and Hum and by this album I'd really soured on them. It just seemed like they gave up doing anything but pumping out ready-made album rock station hits. I heard all the singles from it incessantly throughout the early nineties listening to rock radio while working in construction and could happily not have to hear "One" ever again.

I was studying abroad in a small town in the North of Japan (Nakajo in Niigata) when the album came out and I got it to listen to on the train. I was actually kind of over U2 at that point having been a fan of Boy and October from much earlier. But I was in a mood for something that combined new and exciting of travel with the homesickness salve of a known entity so I bought it.

It turned out to be a remarkable fit for that particular time in my life. Riding the Shinkansen to Kyoto for a Thanksgiving holiday trip was enervating yet, for an introvert loner, slightly scary. Zoo Station perfectly captured that mood for me and helped me transform a little bit of panic at the idea that I might get lost in Japan into a little bit of ecstasy that I might get lost in Japan.

my roommate got a copy right when it came out... he put it on and when I heard the opening of Zoo Station, I stopped in my tracks, looked at the CD player - thinking it was broken or skipping or something - and thought "what in the hell is THIS??" (in a good, shocked, mind-blown way) -- went to the show, bought the shirt-- it's been a favorite since. I'll get the deluxe dealio.

also.... for a fun discussion, try debating which is better "Joshua Tree or Achtung" with a music fan... (the answer is 'Achtung' bytheway)

As a fan I parted ways with U2 during the Unforgetable Fire era due to a combination of overkill and my feeling that they no longer had excitment that made me love them in the first place. Achtung Baby is the record that brought me back into the fold and made me a fan again. It was nice to see the band pushing their sound, apparently having a great deal of fun doing it, and trusting their fanbase to come along for the ride. It even made me go back to Unforgettable Fire and Joshua Tree and finally appreciate those records.

Isn't this album the beginning of Bono's "perpetual sunglasses" period?

U2 marks the time for my memory of my youth. I had a poster of The Unforgettable Fire in my room, growing up, and picked up Joshua Tree after standing in line for its release. I remember going to college and finding other, new people, who loved all of the small perfections of that album and who may have listened to it as often as I had. When Rattle & Hum came around to local theaters, my (the woman who would one day marry me) girlfriend took me, and I refused to speak to her during the entire play of the movie.

Achtung Baby marks the period prior to my first son being born (he turns 19 on November 5th), when I was starting to really hear sounds like Pearl Jam and the Smashing Pumpkins, and coming to regard U2 as something belonging to my youth. Still, Edge playing at the beginning of Zoo Station brings back such clean memories of that time, I can't deny its impact.

I didn't really connect with U2 again until All That You Can't Leave Behind, when something clicked in me (and most of the listening public) after the events of 9/11, and their music seemed extremely relevant.

I'm not sure if I'm missing your point here, but Achtung Baby wasn't full of the type of rock radio hits that were popular at the time. It came out around the time "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was getting big and just breaking into rotation on mainstream radio stations. In my corner of the world, Achtung Baby was a pretty refreshing break from the kind of rock in rotation on mainstream radio. I could be wrong but I remember 1991 rock radio as having a lot of Bryan Adams, Sting, and the tail end of the big hair metal bands.

Except One. Jeez, they played the hell out of that song. It was good too, but now I turn it off every time I hear the opening notes cuz I'm just so sick of it.

Ya know, it just sort of occurred to me what a leap this one was from it's predecessors.

I think on its release in 91 I was just young enough to think "of course they sound different, that's what bands do"
But looking at it now in reverse, for them to jump from Rattle & Hum Americana bluesiness to this blippy, Krauty stuff and to make the landing look effortless is a pretty remarkable thing.

Bono said the opening riff of Zoo Station was "the sound of four men chopping down the Joshua tree." I always kind of liked that quote. It makes more sense than 99.9% of the stuff he says.

When Achtung Baby came out, I was, let's say, sequestered from the world of new pop music releases. I was a Mormon missionary and I was in a part of the world where only the most huge, mainstream music releases would show up. And I generally followed the rules about what music missionaries are supposed to listen to (different missions have different rules in that regard, but even my relatively-liberal one put such things as U2 squarely outside that category). So that meant that I completely missed the whole mainstream grunge thing. I knew most of the big bands of that era by their previous releases. But, for example, I had never even heard of Pearl Jam at all until the latter half of 1993. One of the constants in my life to that point (and, indeed, ever since) has always been rock music. So it was the hardest thing to give up. And two years is a long time when you're 20. Or it was for me.

So anyway, Achtung Baby came out and it was huge and mainstream enough that people where I was knew it and you'd hear it here and there in stores and that sort of thing. But just enough to sort of get a sense of it. Not a real listening experience. And I didn't really care, because I had been more of an indie and punk rock guy and I had basically given up on U2 at some point in high school.

But there I was on a mission having an absolutely miserable time because of a whole variety of things, most related to my companion being a crazy religious zealot (surprise, right?). The whole mission wasn't bad, and I had some great companions before and after that guy, but I was in a particularly bad place toward the end of 1991 and beginning of 1992. And just when it was getting pretty unbearable, something came up where we had to get on a bus to travel about four hours each way to take a bunch of stuff to some other missionaries.

We got on the bus just before the crack of dawn and settled into our seats, and I told him in no uncertain terms that we would not be doing any proselyting of any kind on the bus, because that would be terribly rude. There must have been just enough tension in my voice when I told him that, because he agreed and sat down.

And just as the bus was pulling away from the station, the driver put on Achtung Baby. And, of course, my insane zealot companion started to squirm because he was being forced against his will to listen to music that is not "allowed." And I don't know that I could have been happier (OK, it could have been Bauhaus or the Pixies or Sticky Fingers, I guess).

I just sat in my seat watching the countryside and the the sea go by outside the bus window and soaked it all in. And when it got to the end of the album, the driver just let it auto reverse to the beginning and start over. And then again. And again. For about four hours. Loud.

We got to our destination, had lunch, etc. Then got back on the bus. Same bus. Same driver. Same album. The whole way back, over and over, all the way home. And those songs spoke to me. They were just right.

Now, I'm not saying it was divine intervention or anything.

But I love that album.

I don't think you can elicit the strong feelings of ? hate and/or disgust that Bono brings out in people without a movement from a feeling of true love; I now tend to think of him as a species of pompous windbag (see expensive luggage commercial and the perpetual coolness of the perpetual shades), but back in the day this was some lovely shit.
Cleaning up a record store (CDs were not even the dominant media if I remember correctly) after closing and blasting this through the dead mall gave me some lovely memories. And my then wife thought that dancing to Mysterious Ways was the sexiest thing she ever did, and she was right.
Good times.

Edge gets too much crap. Yes, it's a gimmick, but it's a damn good one that he uses for tremendous effect, when they let him off the leash. It's Eric Zahn's guitar, careening into the void of forever, summoning a dread power better left nameless and unknown. When he's kept in check, he's terrible.

You can hear him phoning it in with the "Lightspeed" single "leaked" in the FPP - gawd, was there ever a song more blatantly and cynically constructed to appear in a Lexus commercial? You can just picture Bono looking into a hand mirror while singing it. Edge was probably playing it with his toes while reading a magazine.

This is album came out when when I was about ten years old, and it made U2 into one of my first real favorite bands before I'd even heard their other stuff. I set out to scrape together their entire back-catalog, no mean feat given how thinly stretched my weekly $5 allowance already was by X-Men-related periodicals and collectibles. I was so deep into "old" U2 by the time Zooropa dropped that it didn't even sound like the same band to me. If anything, Achtung Baby should be celebrated as their last good album; every U2 release to follow it has made even Rattle and Hum sound focused and unpretentious by comparison.

I always thought Achtung Baby marked the start of the less interesting era of U2. Give me "Sunday Bloody Sunday" and "New Years Day" any day. I also remember it not being all that well received at the time, probably because it was such a departure from Joshua Tree and Rattle and Hum.

Achtung Baby is the 1990's opening salvo -- it presages what will come, the technological flood and information overload, the electronic torrent, but it is rooted in love and pain and emotion, the dissolution of Edge's marriage, the relationship between man and God, in the personal. For all the darkness of the album, it seems hopeful for the future, hopeful for what will come.

OK Computer tells us where we went in the 90's and what happened to us. It's disassociated, strange, off-putting, and steeped in the technology that Achtung Baby so accurately predicted we'd fall in to. When Fitter, Happier is given over to a computer singer, OK Computer shows just how far the technological promise of Achtung Baby devolved into something we never could've predicted.

To me at least, those albums perfectly bookend the decade.

This is a bit derail-y (ok, a lot actually) but I saw them do the Pitchfork thing where they performed the entire album in order in Chicago a few summers back and ah, it just reminded me how much weight it had/has for some of us. From the opening sound you knew, this was something different and Important.
