Achtung Baby by U2 (1991): A Life Changing Experience

I discovered this album from U2 with one song: “Mysterious Ways.” I was still a little child at the time (13 years old maybe). But the introduction immediately captured my attention. For people who didn’t know U2 at the time, it’s a beautiful discovery. Of course, the song called “One” everybody plays at their marriage has an incredible climate: a zest of Dorian makes it full of realism and clarity. I think “Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses” had some airplay at the time. But it’s not the most energetic song on the album. The rest of the album is packed with exciting advice like in “Acrobat,” “Love Is Blindness,” and “So Cruel.” I guess the message of the album is quite clear even though it’s debatable: if you like to play, be careful. You don’t sometimes know if pushing that red button is a good idea.
