  1. ahhhh def “Ultraviolet (Light My Way).”

    It’s like a revamped, alt-rock-flavored version of a love/god song they would’ve done pre-Achtung… so good.

  2. Until the End of the World

  3. Ultraviolet (Light My Way)

  4. Love is Blindness

  5. Ultraviolet (Light My Way)

  6. Ultraviolet (Light My Way)

  7. Love is Blindness

  8. Ultraviolet FTW!

  9. Ultraviolet (Light my way)

  10. Love Is Blindness

  11. Until The End of The World

  12. Mysterious Ways

  14. One, but only the LP version. Can’t stand it live.

  15. Even Better Than the Real Thing

  16. Like a lot of others, my favorite changes all the time. Right now “Until The End Of The World” is the one I’ll go with.


    “Early morning, I was drowning my sorrows, but my sorrows, they learned to swim…”

  18. Until The End Of The World

    (how amazing are these lyrics as well?)

  19. Until the End of the World

  20. Favorite track is “Until the End of the World”. You can’t beat a song writting from the point of view of Judas. And the Edge’s guitars have never soared so greatly.

  21. Love Is Blindness

  22. Ultraviolet (Light My Way)

    Great lyrics, dense sonically, life affirming

    “when it was all messed up, and I heard opera in my head, your love was a lightbulb hanging over my bed”

  23. I just love the guitars on “Mysterious Ways”. “One” is unfortunately played out for me, former favorite.

  24. Until The End of the World :)

  25. Until the End of the World

  26. “The Fly”

  27. Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses

  28. Love is blindness.

  29. My favorite song off of Achtung Baby has to be “One”. Such a raw and emotionally charged song.

  30. Until The End of the World.


  31. Mysterious Ways

  32. Until The End Of The World

  33. Until the End of the World

  34. I love so many of this album that it’s hard to choose. I especially love Zoo Station, Even Better…, and Acrobat, but I will go with Until the End of the World as my favorite since it has so much going on and is both great on record and probably the best song they perform live. When that intro starts off, everyone in the audience loses their shit and it continues throughout until the mind boggling finale. As innovative as Nirvana may have been with Nevermind, second guessing Achtung, Baby for that reason is idiotic. They took music somewhere with that album and I think that No Line on the Horizon was on the right track from going back to something unique and creative and hopefully they can continue in that vein with subsequent musical releases.

  35. Mysterious Ways

  36. Ultraviolet (Light My Way) all the way

  37. Stay (Far Away, So Close) slightly edges out Until the End of the World for me.

  38. Ultra Violet (Light My Way)

  39. Ultraviolet (Light My Way)
