General U2 Discussion / Rattle & Hum BluRay
« Last post by Tortuga on October 13, 2018, 06:37:45 AM »
Is the Rattle & Hum BluRay out of print?  Does anyone think they will re-release it in a deluxe version someday?  Any ideas why it hasn’t received the anniversary treatment?

Its funny, I hadn’t seen that S&G performance in years.  At the time I didn’t understand the critical backlash against Rattle & Hum but watching that now with Bono’s little speech makes me cringe.  I guess that’s the difference between youth and later life.  I was pretty wide-eyed back then.  Now maybe I’m pretty cynical.  I do remember even back then laughing when Bono said “Ok Edge, play the blues” and Edge rips into a very Edge-like solo that sounds nothing like the blues.

No one has any right whatsoever to demand you sit down at a freaking concert. Ignore them and enjoy the should as it should be enjoyed: standing.

For those raving about the recent switch up in their setlist, let me kindly point out that they have managed to whittle the setlist down to a mere 21 songs (remember when, in pre-tour interviews, that they would play “longer” sets?). Keep in mind that opening night, in Tulsa, ran 27 songs long; and, that much of the rest of that leg settled at 26, before more firmly settling on 24.

If things change up over these next several weeks, I will happily eat my words; but, to my eyes, they’re being lazy.

I think part of this is them protecting Bono’s vocals but I hear you

The Music and Lyrics / Re: Serious-but-embarassing question: why buy vinyl?

If you really hear a “difference” you’re lying to yourself. On the other hand, some people have vinyl sound system that sound better than their speaker setup. But you can’t hear a difference in vinyl vs sound. People buy for the colletability.

I still feel it’s one of their four touchstone albums, after Joshua Tree, Achtung Baby, and ATYCLB. Not to say it’s as good as Achtung Baby, but what the release of the album means, given the current state of rock, where U2 are at as people, and the quality of the two prior albums (I love them both, but they are missing an energy that the best U2 albums have), definitely makes it one of the band’s most important albums. I still listen to it regularly as an album, not for individual tracks. If U2 had released a similar album after Atomic Bomb, their half-decade of Bono asking “Why are U2 still here?” could have been avoided.
