Ha, then I guess I've done a good job covering my tracks.

Achtung Baby is amazing, simply because it's one of, if not THE only album I've known for years that continues to get better and better each time I listen to it. I heard it for the first time when I was 11, and I had no idea what to think. It was so pessimistic and dark, I had no idea what being in a relationship was like or how damaging they could be at their worst. I had no idea guitars could be so explicitly ugly. It's still a very draining record, and I know precisely what to expect by now. But that doesn't stop me from nodding my head a couple extra times on those really poignant lines, which there seem to be more of each time.

It's probably gone from being my 8th favorite U2 record up to somewhere in my top 5, battling it out with Boy for the 4th spot at the moment.

Achtung Baby is a good record that could have been great with some better production, but everyone here has heard me talk about that ad nauseum.

AB will definitely benefit from a (hopefully competent) remastering. I also think that its reputation, at least on these forums, is substantially bolstered by the ingenious tour that supported it. Every song on the album that was played live became more fierce and emotive, with some, like Until the End of the World and Ultraviolet, taking on what seemed like entirely new personae.

Same. I hated OK Computer for about six months. I couldn't make it past Fitter Happier, I thought it was just a bunch of noise. Now, I love it.

If they recorded the album the way they played those songs live on ZooTV (basically every song improved greatly), it might be my favorite album ever.

Sweet Jesus, people are nuts. I don't think AB cracks my top five U2 albums. It's OK, but I'm going to reach for Pop or TUF or TJT or even October before that one.
