I wouldn't mind having an official orchestrated version of SatS (similar to their performance at the Clinton Library), but yeah... for the most part, those new mixes are vastly inferior to the originals (Numb and Discotheque being the biggest offenders)

According to the story from U2.com, they are remastered:

"Remastered and pressed on 180gsm vinyl, each reissue includes a download card and faithful reproduction of original artwork and will be released on the 13th April but you can pre-order now."

I have the original Pop and ATYCLB on vinyl but never listen to them so it'll be nice to finally have copies I can break out and listen to!

They better not! I prefer the album version of every song on Pop, by a long shot.

So will this make the prices of the originals on eBay go up or down?

This is good news! After all these years, ATYCLB and HTDAAB were the only vinyls missing in my collection, so now I can finally get the former.

Just watched the discoteque video. Couldn't get through it. The riff is pretty good, but the video reminds me that this was the beginning of the end. It did not age well imo. They look like they are trying way too hard to fit into an uncomfortable time for the band. Way too many crotch shots of bono. Ugh... I was hoping for a pleasant surprise, instead I got crotched.

I’m curious about this too. I would guess that that drop might be very minimal, but only if the quality on the remasters is such that it is so noticeably improved.
There will always be a market for 1st prints in any physical medium. The power of a keepsake.

I think it's the exact opposite: the video (and specially the song) aged very well - way better than many post Pop songs/videos - because U2 dared to go ahead with that sort of conceptual silly-ness and put them selves in a deliberate awkwardness, all wrapped in some of Stèphane Sednaoui's most interesting photography jobs in music videos.

Agreed, I think it's a brilliant video and a great song too.

Welp, if they screw it up at least I still have my overpaid-for-on-ebay original UK pressing.

Huh. Well I think the exact opposite. One of their stronger albums and is still very very strong. Especially after you get past the first three songs (although those are some of my favorites).

The whole glitz/glammy/pop star whore was the entire joke. It was supposed to be stupid and over the top. The entire thing was ironic and a commentary on how retail our culture had become (years before it was a cool commentary to make).

Did you just watch it for the first time? Yeah, it's kind of a surprise after watching their other videos. I watched the PopMart DVD recently and still get some secondhand embarrassment from it. The tour didn't age well, but some songs from Pop are amazing deserve a second chance. Too bad they got buried under that ridiculous tour. It really is cringeworthy. I hope enough time has passed that the band really is ready to play some of those songs again.

You're right, but the unfortunate part is that most of the time U2 came across like they really were trying to be cool. The humor and irony didn't come through very well and the whole concept was a little before its time. Oh well. Who knows what they would have done next if it had been massively popular? The same question applies to Rattle and Hum; I've often wondered how far down that road they would have gone if it had done better.
