Alternate Acrobat

Has anyone else heard the "demo" of acrobat? I like it almost as much as the album version. the only problems are you cant really tell what Bono is singing, and there isn't enough bass.

The solo is better than the album version IMO. Also, there are more guitar parts as well.

here it is for those who havent heard it.

nothing like hearing a song for the 1st time that blows you away.

Dude, this is xtreme! Thanks for posting this.

I wouldn't say this is better than the album version though, not at all. The album version is much more powerful, solo included. The riff in this one sounds kinda like Until the End of the World.

Still, this is tight.

I see. This is the demo from the Axtung Beibi outtakes! Meh.. it's okay. I prefer the album version by a mile! Can't even understand what the hell Bono's singing here.

I find the whole AB outtakes thing to be lackluster overall.

I usually don't like outtakes, but this one is great (not better than the final version, though), thanks for sharing

This version is great, but nowhere near close the album version. The album version features my favorite performance by Bono, along with some of my favorite lyricis and an amazing job by The Edge, Larry and Adam. Believe it or not, this was the song that hooked me to U2, not one of their singles.

This is the only song from the outtakes that stayed the same. I remember Bono says strange things like "don't let the disser drive you down" or something haha.

Is it only me that kind of thinks that u2 put a final version of their songs , well not all of course , but some as this "worse" than the original demo ? I mean acrobat is good on the album , but this demo is fucking kicking ass , it would give a whole new color to achtung baby something raw as that , also did you see Crumbs on the HTDAAB dvd , it's way more better than the final album version , someone agree ?
