The last three songs are the pinnacle of U2.

I agree about Bono. There was a depth in Bono's voice on Achtung that hasn't been there since. His singing was emotive without being over-the-top.

Yep. It's his best album in my opinion. Even on the more 'rock' songs like UTEOTW or The Fly, he still imbues them with so much palpable emotion.

Agreed. AB is in my car spinner right now and I was just thinking how great his vocals are on the record.

as much as I like all of U2's music it really is sad to compare what they are releasing now to what they were doing in the 90s.

It's a shame "Love Is Blindness" hasn't been played since ZOOTV. Incredible song. Ultraviolet and Acrobat are obviously top notch as well (easily top 15 U2 songs), but LIB is maybe the best song they've ever made IMO.

Achtung Baby was such a good headphones album. I listened to it a lot at night on my discman. That's how I listened to a lot of music in 1992 when I was developing my musical tastes and listened privately because it felt weird talking to patents about music.

Not many bands made music as good as they did 25 years earlier.

And not many bands ever made music as good as U2's work in the 90s.

You imbue this message board with palpable emotion.

It's pretty funny. Until modern-day Bono starts giving the younger Bono advice. Maybe they wouldn't suck as much if it was the other way round. I'll take mullet Bono thanks.
