I also love the production. So sue me.
I'm listening to my collection of early 1980s b-sides. These are cool songs.

Also, I've never had much of an issue with Boy's production. It's funny and sad that it sounds better than albums like JT, Achtung, and HTDAAB.

i have a guess, but i'm not 100% sure if i'm right or not. like, i'm 30% sure i'm right. yeah, that's pretty weak, i know.

I would say that out of all of U2's albums, HTDAAB is actually the one most in need of a remaster. It sounds DREADFUL.
i was about to say that

unfortunately i think ab and zooropa need a remaster only cuz they sound so...muffled i think. zooropa especially. atyclb sounds fine, it just sucks

A thread from Early November 2004 would suggest not!. Along with myself and about 80% of the rest of interference.

The UYMFA collective truly loved when the Train would make a stop. Feel free to PM me your guess.

I don't know what I was hearing in 2004. Maybe my hearing's just improved a lot since then or I know what to listen for or something. Because it's absolutely undeniable from a technical perspective that the worst produced U2 album is HTDAAB. It's the whole "loudness wars" thing. The clipping on Crumbs is all the proof I need. I know when I bought the album, I wasn't aware of this sort of stuff and just thought the clipping on Crumbs was due to a slightly defective CD on my end.

They pretty much all need an update through Pop.

I don't think a remaster will help HTDAAB.

This predates your arriving in the Bar. In fact, the Bar as a whole would enjoy the Train.
