U2 never was a rock'n'roll band in the early Stones sense of the genre, they were and are a pop band. Their early records do sound like the 80`s, little cheesy but very popular. Good music, reaches far, and carry mild political "soft riot" messages. It works. U2 is purifying music, puts you in a nice contemplative mood, it flows and you're feeling good.

Every old band went through changes in their career to update software and hardware. Depeche Mode is a good example or the U2. I grew up on my dad's early hard rock tapes went through goa and now into experimental electronica, I do like this electro-pop-rock U2, same little cheese as in the 80's but rich. So I don't see the point blaming them for playing popular music. It's not politics after all, being a populist in music, if it's honest, is totally acceptable. U2 sounds true, it's genuine, honest music.

My favorite song on this album is Acrobat. it's simple, powerful, emotional, all you need from the modern Western Pop-Zen

One of the most overrated rock albums of all time. I just can't get into this no matter how hard I try. One of the biggest let-downs for me are the lyrics. There's just so very little substance contained in them. I consider "The Fly" the best track here, but its lyrics are just throwaway. Even as late as the Joshua Tree, U2's stories had political and social depth, though the pretentiousness had started creeping in by then. But this album is almost full-blown pretense. Overplayed, nauseating crap like "One" signaled the end of meaningful commentary.

Musically, there's too much electronics; they were never a synth band. What makes their early albums enjoyable now is that they don't sound like 80s albums -- they're pure rock and roll. And although Achtung Baby does not exactly sound 20 years old, it still sounds more dated than their earliest efforts, mainly due to the instrumentation and production.
