Produced by Daniel Lanois with Brian Eno mainly at Hansa Ton Studios, Berlin, Dog Town, . and Windmill Lane, Dublin. Achtung baby album, the album that marks the re entry of U2 after a pause of years. And it really is another level. Rattle and hum ' is back and the dream goes on, and it sounds high,' Even better than the real thing', the musical journey still is and it gains in enrichment as regards possibilities
The album that saw U2 reclaim their place as world’s biggest rock band was also the moment at which they stopped looking forward and started strip-mining their past. Here Bono was both a primadonna in the making and a nervy kid still living with his dad. The tension drives the album. With Achtung Baby and Zooropa the consensus was that U2 had done a Bowie : recording at Berlin’s Hansa Tonstudio and overhauling their image with a chilly Mitteleuropean hauteur.
The lyrical approach of the album was greatly inspired by Irish poet, novelist and Trinity College, Dublin Professor Emeritus Brendan Kennelly’s advice to Bono to write as if you’re dead’, resulting in a collection of songs in the form of intimate letters to places and people close to the singer’s heart - family, friends, fans, himself. And the beginning of something is often marked by the ending of something else. There's a transition here, for U2, for my nation, for myself, for the world, for all of us. I'm not sure where we're going, any of us really, but this album renews a sense of hope that tomorrow doesn't have to be like yesterday

Late Night Seduction.
Behold the album’s many hallmarks of the modern: There are contributions by Kendrick Lamar ( American Soul ) and Haim ( Lights of Home ), and there are flourishes that conspicuously recall the xx ( Red Flag Day ) and Arcade Fire ( Get Out of Your Own Way ).
