I'm sure there'll be complaints in this thread soon enough about money-grabs and stuff like that. Whatevs. No one is forcing anyone to buy it. This and Achtung Baby, I'll buy just about anything they release. And Unforgettable Fire.
No, no one is forcing anyone to buy any of the versions, but that doesn't matter, it's the principle. There was a box set of TJT 10 years ago, which was perfect. This time around, there is hardly anything to justify double-dipping a Super Deluxe set for much of the audio in total was released or re-released 10 years ago. This is definitely a cash-grab, and what's worse, U2 have wasted an opportunity to Super Deluxe POP for the first time ever for its 20th Anniversary. I know, that album is considered a low point for the band, thanks to people who just don't get it
, but that whole period does have its fans who who would PAY for something like that. Let's also not forget the 25th Anniversary of Rattle and Hum
: they squandered the opportunity to honor that film and soundtrack as well. What this all comes down to is the band not making good decisions lately in consideration of many of the fans.
