Don't tell me they're going to remaster the whole catalog all at once now. For JT it made sense because it was the 20th anniversary, but it doesn't make sense to do it on the 28th anniversary of Boy's release

I don't know if I believe this. If they were planning a release like this, I think they would've been talking it up by now.

I could see a Zooropa remaster in May.... 15 years. Or War. That's 25 years.

Yeah. Well, who are we kidding though? We'll all buy the remaster discs.

aww here we go with the complaining. for fuck sake these cds need remastering. thank god they're getting a release. REM have done it, Dylan's done it, the Stones, the Cure, Sonic Youth, etc. Why do people see everything as a money grab??

...and the Joshua Tree was a landmark album, of course that's going to be a remaster that gets promoted as a special anniversary release. I doubt the others are intended as anything more than replacements for the shit quality discs that are being sold now.

Because people have large chips on their shoulders.

JT re-release wasn't hyped much either.

Wait, why is this a surprise? Just a couple of months ago, we had some quotes that everything was going to be remastered in the immediate future and the forum immediately got spammed with threads creating ideal remaster tracklists. Since we hadn't heard anything about any releases though, I was starting to get skeptical that any of that was true. Nice to see that just maybe, it might be happening. Boy is dying for a remaster and there are so many unreleased songs from that era.
