This DVD contains the ultimate review and critical analysis of U2's most pivotal album. It offers a previously unobtainable level of insight into the band during the recording of their most dynamic and well respected album. Via the use of live footage, long forgotten videos and the review, criticism and insight of a panel of highly opinionated experts, this package delivers the finest documentary film yet to emerge on Dublins favorite sons. Achtung Baby was the album that fired U2 into the 90s when the four-piece dramatically overhauled their traditional approach to songwriting.
At the dawn of the 1990s, tensions in the U2 camp were fraught as the band argued about the direction they should take for their next project. When solutions were not readily forthcoming, the band even considered splitting up. Changing their sound drastically as well as changing the entire musical background in which they existed, U2 had triumphed. Recognised today as one of the greatest rock albums ever produced, the first film in this two disc set looks back at the development, production, reception and aftermath of Achtung Baby, whilst disc two in the set covers the post-Achtung era.
