Read times
20 years ago in November was released the seventh album of the Irish that they themselves call it "the sound of four men chopping down The Joshua Tree".

The title was because it was recorded mainly in Hansa Studio in Berlin and the Windmil Lane in London with a dream team of producers consisting of Daniel Lanois , Brian Eno and Steve Lillywhite.

On October 31 Universal Music rereleases Acthung baby which left its mark in the 90s and gave the U2 besides more recognition, fame, and sworn fans, a Grammy in the category of Best Rock Performance.

We dare mention The Fly , Mysterious Ways , One , Even Better Than The Real Thing and Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses that made the band known to even the most indifferent man who listens to the radio without holding on to names and titles.
