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 ?
This demo version sounds closer to a traditional rock song. It wouldn't work on Achtung Baby. In fact this version almost sounds like it could have been on Rattle and Hum. I really like this demo because it's completely different. It's not better or worse in my opinion just different. I mean depending on my mood I could like the demo or the album version better at any given time. Thank you JMScoopy for posting this.

Yup, much of the Axtung Beibi Outtakes sounds like fairly generic, "American/classic-rock" rock. The songs sound pretty good on their own, but had they all been on Achtung Baby in place of what we got, I believe AB would have been a far less impressive album.

Perhaps , good points , but one thing edge's sounds much better on this , i mean non the distorted classic more common , but the one on the background. Also larry sounds much more alive
