To be fair, did they not say during the last tour that they never realised the fans had been dying to see Acrobat performed live? For the last 20+ years....

I would assume this box set is unabashedly for completists. Otherwise there's no point in investing in this collection. Maybe Bomb's box will be better in 2024.

Things I am happy about:

- Regardless of the lost opportunity for something else, having the Boston show on vinyl
- having the b sides etc (especially Stateless) on vinyl
- new remixes. This period is THE WORST for U2 remixes. Everything is the same fucking Paul Oakenfold beat.
- the packaging

Things I am not happy about:

- no new demos/outtakes
- not all the b sides or single versions
- no new live material

On the whole it is quite disappointing, but not so disappointing that I won’t buy it because of the points mentioned above. This was the absolute very bottom of the barrel in terms of potential for this set - such a shame.

I'm with Dan on this. I'll add it to my collection and shed a tear since this is still an album I play all the way through...

Just noticed that none of the CD singles are completely included in this set (Elevation Tomb Raider mix, Walk On single mix, Farmclub and Popmart live songs). I understand leaving out Pop era live tracks, but at least we could have gotten the Irving Plaza show or a post 9/11 show.

I admittedly have a bit of love for this album as it was my first U2 album, so I have a number of memories attached to it.

But I already have all this stuff, sans the new remixes of course. I'm not sure who this is intended for...the die hards? Don't they already have all this stuff? The box set does admittedly look nice, but like hell I'm paying for this as I need to hold on to all the money I got these days.

The inevitable HTDAAB box set in 2024 should be a riot, stacked with a bunch of unheard Vertigo and COBL remixes to keep you busy I'm sure.

isn't every box set released on physical media in 2020 kinda "for the die hards"? i can't imagine any casual fan is buying something like this from any "legacy" band unless they're a rich boomer.

Cannot imagine any sensible person would actually buy this. If you're dropping money on this useless collection, you have more money than sense. Nothing of any significance that any diehard doesn't already have, and as DaveC indicates, the only people dropping money on sets like this in 2020 are offensively wealthy fans to begin with. U2 could at least throw us a bone with something we don't already have, but no. It's just a grift. If you'd rather buy Larry a gold-plated toilet than pay for your own groceries, I suppose that's your own stupid fucking decision, but you might want to reconsider it.

Can a band / artist really be so out of touch or apathetic that nobody involved with creating a re-issue asks the question “what about including new or unreleased material?” Do they think punters shell out big money on a re-issue purely on the basis of nostalgia or perhaps even some weird attraction to the packaging rather than the material contained within? Surely there has to be somebody involved who gives two shits about actually providing value for money? A few bits of cardboard and some photos, hiding the lack of any new material, doesn’t cut it.

So I think we can agree that U2 don’t have anything in their vaults other than live shows and song ideas they want to keep for their next album, or snippets of songs they never want anybody to hear.
