happy birthday ACHTUNG BABY i salute you...this album means so much, its timeless beauty is set in stone and as some of the others here i also believe that ACROBAT is one of their finest songs. its like it was yesterday...the clouds hung deep over Auckland (the city with the One Tree Hill) when the deep dark intro of ACROBAT came over the speaker. one of these unforgettable moments. ACHTUNG BABY forever.
btw the new baby is born...THE BOMB

Happy Birthday Achtung Baby! My favorite album of all time! I was listening to it in the car in the last saturday and my girlfriend just said this thing to me: "Are you sure this stuff was made in 91?!"

So old but still fresh
Acrobat IMO the best. Although my girlfriend loves "One"... and I said, shut up and listen to "Until the End of the World" and Acrobat.
Well, she now wants me to make a copy of it for her. God, I addicted everyone to U2 because of this album!
"Listen to this album", "If you listen to this you'll understand why I love U2", etc, etc. Now every friend of mine likes U2. Their not their favourite band but they know how good they are (as musicians and a band) and trully respect them.

Acthung Baby will be forever in my heart even more than my girlfriend j/k

Achtung Baby... 1991. Seems like yesterday. 13 years does not seem very long!

Ave ACHTUNG, morituri te salutant!!!!
a song from queen-Who wants to live forever?
Maybe achtung didn't want it, but i'm sure that it will.
It can't not live forever.

But this date will be remembered in Croatia, not because of AB, but because of serbian army killing,slaughtering many Croatians and in the end conquering a city called Vukovar.

Still as fresh today as in 1991.

The best album ever made.

Ah...What else hasn't been said already re: AB.

It's funny...me and a friend flew to Providence, RI yesterday afternoon and had to rent a car to drive to nearby FoxWoods casino to help aid our poker addiction. I didnt take a bag with me and could only take one CD out of my whole (huge) collection to put in my jacket pocket and play in the car because radio sucks, and guess which one I picked?

ACHTUNG BABY....

I heard the whole thing straight, its such brilliance. Best album ever.

Happy birthday, most over-rated U2 album ever. Happy birthday, U2 album with the worst cover. Happy bloody birthday.

U pravu si, prijatelju. Ali mislim da ovo nije mjesto za takve stvari. Vratimo se na U2 i na glazbu, sto mislis?

I remember the day I bought it, in London (where I lived for three years) a small record store near Bank Tube Station.
