Muze PNote In 1991, U2 shocked the pop-music world with ACHTUNG BABY, a striking departure from the Irish band's beloved '80s arena-rock sound. Here the group careens into sonically adventurous territory, reveling in distorted guitars, drum loops, and layers of synthesizers.
Muze PNote The stunning opening track, "Zoo Station," kicks in with fierce, fuzzed-out guitar and a clanging industrial beat, Bono's distinctive voice the only tell-tale sign that this is indeed a U2 album. From here, ACHTUNG BABY deftly maneuvers between giddy electro-pop (the shimmering "Even Better Than the Real Thing," the funky "Mysterious Ways"), bold techno-tinged rock (the majestic punch of "Until the End of the World," the seductive squall of "The Fly"), and contemplative ballads (the heartbreakingly beautiful "One," the haunting closer "Love Is Blindness"). Throughout it all, the quartet plays to the peak of its abilities, aided by the atmospheric, top-notch production of Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno. This is the record where Bono, for better or worse, fully embraced the role of "rock star," with the Edge, Adam Clayton, and Larry Mullen, Jr. ably accompanying him every swaggering step of the way. One of the group's finest outings, ACHTUNG BABY is indisputably U2's most adventurous album.

Rolling Stone (12/11/03, p.113)

Rolling Stone (1/9/92, p.50)

Spin (p.76)

Spin (9/99, p.128)

Entertainment Weekly (p.75)
- "[E]ssential to understanding the most inscrutable stadium-filling band in history." -- Grade: A

Q (12/91)
- 5 Stars - Classic - "...U2's heaviest album to date. And best..." - One of Q Magazine's 50 best albums of 1991.

Magnet (p.60)
- "[A] sexy, sleek and cynical synthesis of playful falsettos, Euro-trash dance grooves, grinding guitar tones...and a hopeless/heartbroken worldview ripped from the chest of Leonard Cohen."

CMJ (1/6/03, p.16)
- Included in CMJ's list of "Top 25 College Radio Albums of All Time"

Musician (12/91)
- "...ACHTUNG, BABY is dense, tough and endlessly surprising...a great accomplishment..."

Jazziz (Dec.-Jan./92, p.94)
- Picked by critic John Dilberto as one of the 10 best albums of 1992.

New York Times (Publisher)
- "..Dense, self-serious and overly ambitious: all the things this band is rightfully famous for.."

Record Collector (magazine)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "To call ACHTUNG BABY a pivotal release is an understatement....Carbed up on a diet of Bowie, Reed and (at a stretch)
Talking Heads, Bono and chums opted for a more arty, corrosive battle plan..."
