The first rerelease that I will skip
Always very nice to get extras with these kind of releases, especially when there are previously unreleased live recordings. But in this case not too much is new. Even the well-known Boston concert is used again, albeit this time as audio only. (I already ripped an audio version from the DVD myself many many years ago, to listen to whenever I want. And I have, very often :-) ). So, thanks U2 for still being so active in releasing, but this will be the first jubilee release I will skip. Don't get me wrong, U2 fans are spoiled rotten, and I'm sure we will continue to be for a long time ;-)
Good memories
I remember to watch Beautiful Day music video in MTV in late 2000, what a great song!, I love every song in this album, I listened all of them for years, good memories of my 20's. Elevation was the single that was a hit on MTV in Latin America, and it remembers me my travel to Argentina, really good memories of my early years at University!. I can't wait to receive my first Vinyl of my favorite band!.
No Videos?
I was really happy with the Achtung Baby Deluxe Box Set,.and I am happy to see U2 remastered ATYCLB and is releasing this box set. However, I would have liked to see the concert film also remastered in 4K Blu-Ray/DTS sound, a disc of all of the music videos released with this album (Beautiful Day, Elevation from "Tomb Raider" and the 2002 Super Bowl halftime show), and a documentary or interviews on the "Making Of" ATYCLB (at least the composing and recording of Beautiful Day & any truth that it was originally two songs combined into one). Any possibility of releasing a video box set with the remastered CD?
This is great!!! BUT- really stanky that POP didn’t get a package.
All that you bring back..
This album holds a special time in my life. It was a soundtrack that kept me moving forward at the time.. that saw me move to other side of the world.. gigs at earls court and slane castle.. I haven’t paid it much attention in recent years.. nor have I have I thought about that time in my life all that much.. but now its something I know I can’t ever fully leave behind.. listening to these tunes again is like being reunited with a long lost friend.. Ps how has the single version of walk on been left out of this collection? Best on ground...
Live Bad/40 Worth the £85.00 alone. This album was my leaving Slough for good soundtrack. So much has changed Births, deaths, addiction and suicide to boot. There is so much I cannot leave behind experience has taught me to hold on to all experiences however good or bad.,....
Looks Good!
I like a good box set. Even if a lot of the stuff can be got from other places, this is still great. The live Boston show I'd love to have on CD alone, so all the rest is a great bonus!
Fantastic news.
Can’t wait to buy it! Don’t forget Pop turns 25 in 2022! We need a 25th release including early/working versions as you did so well with Achtung Baby’s 20th.
I look forward to this anniversary edition and especially the live tracks from Boston. This reissue is a great way to celebrate an album that still means so much to me. "Beautiful Day" always brings me joy and during concerts its big energy generates a lot of enthusiasm among the crowd. I remember the anticipation before purchasing the album on October 30th back then. With its serious background and great sound "Kite" deeply moves me. Over the years "Elevation" became a tremendous rock classic and in live shows it made me jump, sing and clap hands. "All That You Can´t Leave Behind" is an amazing record concentrating on the power of grand melodies, thoughtful lyrics and the sound of four musicians playing together. It reminds us of essential things that truly matter. Under current circumstances these values are so needed and relevant again.
magnificent item,i am looking forward to get it!!!
This is one of my favorite band and I will try to buy this new music set. Congratulations¡¡¡¡
Pop ????
Love this new release but please please release a remastered version of POP
Thank you so much for this release. But I think you forgot that your best album, Pop, also turned 20.
It was a gorgeous fall day just outside San Francisco when my husband and I pulled into the gas station in our rental car. We picked up some snacks along with this album on cassette. Our California vacation was cut a day short and we needed to get back home to Vermont. For the next 3 days as we drove across the country, heads spinning, fingers toggling between NPR and this album. Remember driving through the spectacular Utah landscape thinking how lucky we were and how this album could not have been a more perfect oundtrack for our journey into the unknown.
Nice Update and Boxset
Glad to get the Boston show audio finally. Wish we had Opening night in Florida, or October 2001 in NYC, but glad and Thankful none the less. Have a lot of b-sides/outtakes but nice to have collected together In one place and the acoustic SIAM. Great album hard to be live it’s 20 years ago. I’m sure band & crew feel the same way! Look forward to getting and immersing myself back in that World and leaving the excess baggage behind!
Outstanding box set
One of my favourite albums not one track a filler. A must buy for any u2 fan.
Rattle and Hum box set please!
Here is what I'd like in a Rattle and Hum box set: 1) audio and video (in full color) of a full-length concert from Nov. 8, 1987, at McNichol's Arena in Denver (a concert that was prominently featured in R/H movie); 2) documentary on the filming of Rattle and Hum movie, including behind the scenes, backstage video; 3) Rattle and Hum movie blu-ray (+abilty to stream in up to 4K); 4) book with photos, articles, etc.; 5) remastered album; 6) b-sides; 7) previously unreleased material; 8) if available, several mixes of Hawkmoon 269 (since there were literally 269 mixes of the song).

Could have been more interesting
A lot of the B-sides are missing A lot of the original remixes are missing. If the Fleet Center, Boston, Massachusetts concert in June 2001 is a transfer of the DVD, then we got a mix of the 4 concerts. There are more concerts an better concerts than this one. The sleeve of the live album comes from the Arnhem concerts in the Netherlands??? Don't get me wrong, i will buy this one, but, in my opinion, the box could have been more interesting.
Friggin sweet!
We don’t have a lot U2 concerts released officially in audio format, I am definitely looking forward to this for sure!! Thank you U2 for all the releases!
I am looking forward to the remastered tracks, particularly When I Look at the World, which is my favorite song from the album. Plus, a shout out to Big Girls, a song that, since it first hit my ears all those years ago, has filled me with simultaneous feelings of empowerment, joy, liberation, and acceptance, an astonishing feat for what is probably viewed by most as merely a frivolous piece of fluff.
It changed everything
This was the album that made me believe in U2 again...
My first love...
with this album, I became a supporter of them. The first love you'll never forget it
I know I am not alone with 'All That You Can't Leave Behind' being the soundtrack of my post-graduation and bachelor season of life. This album took on a whole new and deeper meaning for me and so many others during and after 9-11.
Excited for this!
Love that the Boston show is included. I was at that show. My ex-wife was pregnant with our first son when we went. Bono ran out into the audience during "The Fly" and came right by where we were. He slapped my ex's hand as he ran by. Fast forward to now and my son is a huge U2 fan. Coincidence? I think not!
All That You Can't Leave Behind 20 Anniv
I can't believe that 20 years ago this amazing album by U2 was released. I just pre-ordered mine. It would be awesome if they included more unreleased songs from that time in this box set; but I will still get it no matter what. "Kite" is one of my favorite songs along with of course Beautiful Day what an anthem, it takes me to a comfort zone instantly. "Walk on" is also another song that helped me battle depression a couple of years ago, unbelievable. The album in it's entirety is amazing.
I want to go back!
Okay, this October will see the twentieth anniversary of U2's fabulous album "All that you can't leave behind"... Now I am feeling old...
Legendary time of the legendary album!
This album really influenced me. From the first song, it energizes! It's a Beautiful day... I hummed every day. Looking forward to the anniversary edition! A great thing for a fan!
Take it all!!!
Me: i have spent WAAAY too much money on records this year... Me: (5 minutes later) YES!!! Take all my money!!!
Grower not a Shower
I love this album, but I didn't necessarily at first. I mean it was ok, but yeah after Pop I was expecting some along those lines. Full transparency, I believe Pop is one of their best albums ever (if not "the" best for me). But that was when I was in my early 20s. Now I'm in my early 40s and the album is just magical. As I get older, have kids, start to settle down and come out of my equivalent of the Berlin years, this album finally resonates with me like - I suspect - it did when they wrote it. It's always been good, but now it's got a beautiful tone I finally understand.

Wow 20 years, cannot believe it where has the time gone. One of my favorite tracks is When i look at the world on this one. looking forward to getting it again.
