Should U2 Remaster An Album

Well should they? A remastered Achtung or Joshua Tree would be nice, does anyone here think this is bad idea? Ok in about 10 years, a 20 year Achtung Baby anniversaary release, would you buy it?

the only thing is, if they remaster a good album then people will either say its not as good as the original (probably the same people that refuse to accept that any film sequel is as good as the original, and that U2 peaked back in the 80s and are never coming back, and that the red hot chillis suck now and their "old stuff" is much better...) well, you get the idea.

People will also say they are going back to the glory days (and this infers they arent so good now)

If they do a 'bad' album (pop, being unfinished and not as much liked as their other albums, springs to mind) then I think thats a good idea, but lots of people will see at as an admission that their "new stuff" sucks.

Sorry to say that although I would like them to finish off pop, a lot of people will look at it very negatively

I'd rather hear new material, but maybe a disc of new versions of songs from their whole career would be interresting.

They could remaster their back catalogue, plonk an extra disc of bonus tracks, double the price, no, quadruple the price, and let us buy them like sheeeeeeeeeeeep.

Baa.

Edit: Alright that could start a lot of arguments, but anyway, um, I don't really care if they did any remastering unless they put out something extra. The early albums sound fine to me.

And it would happen

They were remastered, but not using technology currently available. They're now almost as dated as the originals. They're also in such limited supply that it's hard to get one without paying at least $30 for it, and sometimes upwards of $50. What U2 needs to do is remaster their entire catalogue the way Peter Gabriel did in 2002. I would gladly pay to replace my now-old-and-scratchy U2 CDs I've been listening to since the late '80s and early '90s if the new discs sounded as amazing as the PG remasters.

ALL U2 ALBUMS should be remastered keeping their original mixing

I hate to listen to Boy with that bad CD quality and then a better sounded one like ATYCLB

War, because it was recorded on old fashioned equiptment and doesn't transfer well to CD (at least my copy has inferior sound quality)
