I have the super fancy JT boxset, and it's nice.. but I'm not really hyper on buying these three... perhaps only War, but I'm not planning on it..
I'd buy AB and Pop for sure!

The box is awesome, especially with the DVD and all

Oh, sweet, that's on there? Nice.

Yes, but let's face it - the ones that have been around for a while have certainly made their mark as well, even if they aren't done yet. U2 is obviously one of the greatest bands of all time, and it's safe to say that even if they aren't done.

I think War is the worst of the lot, with those millions of remixes on the bonus disc. Who needs that many versions of NYD and THBAO? At least Boy's bonus disc has some decent material ...

That's why I didn't want to pick arcade fire, since they've only got two albums (on the other hand I picked the killers, but, I had a hard time not)


The box of tjt is beyond worth it, but these three seem like a joke. I'll probably only pick up october, simply because I don't already have it

yea that's EXACTLY my problem... but the only album of those three I'd care for remastered sound is War... but why those shitty remixes???

Yeah, but much different and, in my opinion, far superior.

Awesome. Fire sucks, too, so I'm glad that's better.

That really sucks too because war seems to be the one that needed remastered most, and it's the one with the worst bonus disc

Achtung Baby re-mastered would interest me, that could really use it.

The remastering on this bonus disc seems to be hit or miss. While some songs sound improved, others don't. Case in point: Boy-Girl. It sounds worse than the other songs here, and the volume is noticeably lower.

Oh well, I'm not too fond of that one anyway.
