Lovin the baby achtung baby but a shame as some have said that we didn't get a few zooropa out-takes and the AB 'nicked' demo's.

Oh Berlin is brilliant!

 

She's gonna blow your house down- great achtung music but bono of 2011 vocals, makes it into a vertigo hit, elevation style or boots stomper....but it's still good...

 

Heaven and hell.....too many lyrics bono. Would bono from 1989/90 put so many words in? Listen to the hansa boots, both blow your house down and heaven and hell I think are better. And what the fuck are the dooo wooooops about? Horrid U2 moment.....

 

Down all the days.... I prefer numb,,,,,now we have an Irish sing a long song over numb....

 

 

Everybody loves a winner, have to listen again, can't remember it that well......

 

That's my view on these new songs.....

See I don't agree, Oh berlin is good, not brilliant, but good. She's gonna Burn Your House Down, see, I like current Bono's voice, I don't get why you people are complaining about it, but what ever the song is brilliant. Heaven and Hell has too many lyrics? As opposed to what?  It's a great song even with doo wops, which I agree are a wtf, and yes Bono at 30 would have so many words in it.  Down all the Days is better than Numb. There's one that's an instrumental that sounds like a David Gilmour copy, and Everybody loves a winner I have to listen again.

 

I also got the Beach boys Smile album boxset last tuesday as well. If I were to compare I'd say Smile was worth the price, Achtung box should've come with more but who cares. U2 didn't have an album that was scrapped and had 44 years of legend tied to it. 

I do wish Sky Down had more content in it though.

 

 

But I'm not going to fan pick at something I think is perfectly awesome.

oh yeah that instrumental, i love that! reminds me of october or unforgettable fire type style.....

blow your house down is good, and i like bono's voice now, dont get me wrong, but i just dont think him singing it is achtung. bono on achtung went for a more laid back approach for his style. wasnt as anthem like in his singing, and he has made it into a vertigo type hit style....(personally i think its a much better performance from bono on this than vertigo) and the lyrics are good too.

down all the days,,,,,ill have to stick it on again, just to make sure.....

I would look elsewhere. There's a lot of comments accross the internet that certain Amazon sites can not meet there commitment to customer orders.

 

Amazon UK only allowed ordering of there allocation and no more. Once they were reserved, they put a block on anyone else trying to order.

 

I ordered mine as well on Aug 9th and got the same answer. They shipped out all the ones that had priority shipping first. They upgraded me bit I am keeping my fingers crossed
Interesting....after some email discussion with an ``automated'' help service, the expected delivery date went out to December 15. Today's it's changed to November 7....would this mean they've actually sourced the item? I hope so...i'd be devastated to miss out.

 

I called Amazon.ca on Nov 3rd and they got the delivery date changed to Nov 8th as they show 5 in stock. I received it on Nov 8th with no damage to the inside gold trays! I also got it at the price I ordered it at on Aug 9th $309.00. This was a nail biter but I consider myself lucky :)

I got mine this last week from Amazon.ca as well (#1410), at the preorder price of $309 CDN. This looks like the cheapest option I've seen for this AMAZING box set. I see now that the price on amazon.ca is jacked up to $435. Good thing I saved over $100 using the preorder!

 

The only thing I can complain about is there was a rip on one corner of the inside pull out box, but other than that, this set is absolutely fantastic. The fly shades are too cool!

What, what what :-O

 

Cut scenes from The Sky Down documentary?? Oh flippin eck! I missed the showing of that on BBC1 deliberately cause I wanted to wait until I got the box set and watch it when I wanted to on DVD. Now I will never see these deleted scenes.

 

So what did I miss???

There is a rip on one corner of my inside pull out box too, on the left side! I think it is because of the way everything is packed so tight inside the box. Somehow, by human hand or machine, when the box is packed, the corner of the inside tray gets ripped. Otherwise, it is perfect. I have heard of some people saying that both of their corners were ripped! Not worth the trouble of sending back though! I did call Amazon and got a $40.00 refund, so I am happy. The box set is AWESOME, I love it!

Like a lot of other fans, I'll go for the Super Deluxe Edition with the 6 cd's and 4 dvd's. And even if you would decide to buy the Vinyl-package along with it, it would be half the price of the Ãœber Edition. And let's face it, it's the audio and video material that does the trick. So yes, I think the Ãœber Edition is well overpriced, but that's everybody for himself/herself.
