If you're going to spend $658 on the deluxe version of an album you already own, that investment better come with something extraordinary. In the case of U2's 20th anniversary edition of Achtung Baby, the package might live up to the price tag. There's tons of stuff in the box set to get excited about -- demos, concert DVDs, Bono's sunglasses -- but the biggest draw could be a new documentary called From the Sky Down. Judging by the trailer above, this film goes above and beyond the usual made-for-reissue documentaries. It includes interviews, archival footage from the studio and the stage, home movies, cool animation, and versions of Achtung songs that have never been heard.
It's also cool to hear Bono say he ripped off his Achtung style by stealing "Lou Reed's glasses, Jim Morrison's pants, and Elvis' jacket and a little bit of his haircut... It was like an Ident-I-Kit rock star. You know, assemble one yourself," Bono admits. In the doc, U2 also return to Hansa Studios, where Achtung was recorded, to talk about and once again perform the music.
There are two ways to catch From the Sky Down: Either purchase the Uber Deluxe Edition or Super Deluxe Edition of the reissue, or watch it when it premieres on Showtime on October 29th.
