Achtung Baby [20th anniversary edition] - ISLAND
FILTER Grade: 94%

Achtung Baby is the last great U2 album and one of the best records ever made, but is this $150 six-CD, four-DVD 20th anniversary edition worth your time and money? Short answer: Fuck yeah. The Kindergarten disc offers up an alternative version of the album—including a searing seven-minute take on “Love Is Blindness”—while the B-sides and Other Stuff disc boasts more than half a dozen unreleased songs, such as a smoky, bluesy cover of Linda Ronstadt’s “Everybody Loves A Winner.” There are also more than 20 rare remixes here, so you can party like it’s 1991 all over again.
