List - Achtung Baby! U2 + 9
PimaLib_AmyK Sep 22, 2016

A great documentary, which will probably age better than Rattle and Hum. It focuses mostly on how "Achtung Baby" came to be, specifically the song "One". But I think the best part is hearing the Edge sing "Love is Blindness" all on his own on an acoustic guitar.

An exceptional documentary and must-have for any fan of U2. The band and their collaborators reflect on the process that resulted in Achtung Baby, a pivotal album in their discography, and a turning point for all of them. There's lots of archival footage and current reflections from everyone. Seeing where the group was at the time and watching the album slowly come to life makes the film all the more worthy. Highly recommended.
