U2 – Achtung Baby

Reinvention. Rebirth. A Restart for U2. 

That was Achtung Baby, in its essence. With U2 trading Americana pretension for their European roots. 

Inspired by David Bowie’s Berlin trilogy and the sonic sounds of Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin, Achtung Baby was vibrant and inventive, recorded to be more hard-hitting and live-sounding than U2’s previous work. 

With a dense musical setting, dark tones, and an emotional capacity of broken hearts and loneliness. Bono & crew are laid bare in Achtung in ways they never have before.
