My guess is we'll see a deluxe Unforgettable Fire in November, they might wait for the 20th Anniversary for Achtung Baby. In my opinion, the greatest album of all time.

Re: U2: Songs of Ascent - 2010

They released a 2 disc deluxe edition of the Joshua Tree in Nov 2007

Are they that greedy they have to release another one?
You can check Amazon and find the expanded remastered deluxe edition of the Joshua Tree from 2007

it came with 2 CDs, a book and a dvd so I don't see why they have to release another deluxe edition of the Joshua Tree


I am a fan and buy their albums but they always repackage their old stuff to sell during the christmas holidays like the 4 or 5 greatest hits albums they put out in the last 10 years.

Yes they also released 2 cd sets of Boy, October and War. Now we are talking about Unforgettable Fire and Achtung Baby. No one said anything about another issue of Joshua Tree.

Okay, before this fiasco goes any further. JeffTheAlpaca appears to have read this message:

and mistakenly assumed that they were releasing another (in addition to the 2007 re-release) release of Joshua Tree. I think he just read the message wrong. He commented:

Leading to several members commenting on his mistaken assumption:

Still confused, JeffTheAlpaca attempted to clarify what we already knew:

Or maybe I'm completely wrong. Either way, we all can agree that although U2 may be greedy at times they are not re-re-releasing "Joshua Tree" anytime soon.

sorry for the confusion

U2 got a free plug for their Joshua Tree deluxe edition though.

I am looking forward and hope it's good. NLOTH is my favorite U2 album since Zooropa.

Re: U2: Songs of Ascent - 2010

I am curious what they could put on an Achtung Baby DVD that isn't already on the ZooTV DVD anyways. Would be cool if they unearth a Unforgettable Fire show for that set.

Think we'll see an expanded Wide Awake In America or something of that ilk? What about a remastered Rattle And Hum?

With three kids in private school I don't have the cash for these delightful remasters and such, but I would sell my good kidney for an Actung Baby remastered edition with extras.
