ATYCLB Super Deluxe
« on: September 10, 2020, 12:08:02 PM »
Yay for the announcement of the 20th Anniversary Super Deluxe of ATYCLB.  This album sometimes get a bad rap from "fans", but I love it and am excited to have this in my collection.

FYI... the 5CD set is up for pre-order on Amazon for $140. With that you get the book and all the swag, but if someone is only interested in the audio in CD quality, then Qobuz has it up for pre-order for $39.

Interesting!  I was hoping Pop would get the next Super Deluxe Edition release.  Now . . . . . I wonder if Pop ever will.

Thank God it comes out one month after the Super Deluxe release of Prince’s SIGN ‘O’ THE TIMES because, even though U2 is my all-time favorite band, ATYCLB is my least favorite of their albums, while SIGN ‘O’ THE TIMES is probably Prince’s best. If I’d been forced to choose between the two at the same time, using the same paycheck, well...

Panama Jack, thanks for posting this info.  Thanks to Aaron for documenting the information [at u2songs.com] about the different formats of this release [at least the info that's available as of now].  I've had a day to think about this and I think $140 is over-priced for the 5-CD version.  With a release date of October 30 . . . . I guess this All That You Can't Leave Behind re-release will be available before the Joshua Tree concert DVD.  Now that I think about it . . . . . . I wouldn't be surprised if someone decided to make the Joshua Tree concert DVD the fan club gift for the U2.com 2021 subscription.

So help me God, if they drop another pathetic, low definition DVD (a 24 year-old format!) on us again instead of a Blu-ray, I’ll scream. That’s not entitlement, that’s just asking for technology that actually matches our era.

What I'm wondering is whether the album itself will be the exact same remaster as the WAV files that came with the 2019 vinyl re-release? Or will it be yet another newer 2020 remaster? Any insight on that, @Aaron ?

The Joshua Tree film is being shown in theatres before they release it on any home video format. And it's not currently scheduled due to the COVID-19 issues and theatres in some countries not even open.  I expect we won't see it until next year at the earliest.

I doubt it will be new. But it does have The Ground Beneath Her Feet tacked onto it now.  Edge did all the remasters in 2017, and I expect he probably hasn't tinkered further.  That said, he would have done the extras so there may have been tweaks...we probably won't know until the 30th.
