Re-mastered audio plus 24-page book. Though widely acknowledged as suffering a bit from the sophomore slump,

leading the charge. The Dublin quartet's quick success made it imperative for them to get a second album together and while some of the tunes suffer from being rushed along (six months could've given them breathing room, but could have cost them their momentum), it's mostly the sound of a band still finding themselves. Steve Lillywhite's production continues to add atmospherics to the band's careful chiseled sound and Bono clearly has the sound of arenas ringing in his ears as his singing reaches for mythic heights with its consistent full-throat attack. - iTunes
