Are any of these audio remasters?

According to this article (You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login):

"The releases in the set are the 2008-2011 remastered versions of the album if they were done on these pressings. Otherwise the master is the same as had been used to last release the CDs in 2008 in Japan."

In other words, I interpret that to mean that Boy, October, War, TUF, TJT, AB, & Zooropa are the 2008-2011 remasters, whereas everything else uses the album's original master.

Just to clarify, Achtung Baby and Zooropa were not remastered. Edge said they didn't need it. So if you're getting these, they're the original 1991 and 1993 masters. That said, Zooropa is on its way. If it's good, Pop, ATYCLB, and Rattle & Hum will follow. I want non-jewelcase sleeves for these CDs so much.

I got my Zooropa reissue today and it is sweet. It doesn't have a proper CD booklet in it, but the sleeve and the packaging are very faithful to the original issue. I'll be getting Pop and ATYLCB next.

If you've listened to any of them that you've received can you comment on sound quality and if you notice a difference. Thanks.

  • A dangerous idea that almost makes sense

No difference.
