U2 3-LP Bundle – War, The Unforgettable Fire & The Joshua Tree
U2 – War (2009 Remastered on 180g Vinyl)
War is the third studio album by U2. It was produced by Steve Lillywhite, and was released on 28 February 1983 on Island Records. The album is regarded as U2's first overtly political album, in part because of songs like Sunday Bloody Sunday and New Year's Day, as well as the title, which stems from the band's perception of the world at the time; lead vocalist Bono stated that 'war seemed to be the motif for 1982'.
While the central themes of U2's previous albums Boy and October were adolescence and spirituality, respectively, War focused on both the physical aspects of warfare, and the emotional after-effects. Musically, it is also harsher than the band's previous releases. The album has been described as the record where the band 'turned pacifism itself into a crusade'.
War was a commercial success for the band, knocking Michael Jackson's Thriller from the top of the UK charts to become the band's first No. 1 album there. It reached No. 12 in the US and became the band's first gold-certified album there. In 2012, the album was ranked 223rd on Rolling Stone's list of 'The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time'.
U2 – The Unforgettable Fire (2009 Remastered on 180g Vinyl)
Released on 1 October 1984 The Unforgettable Fire is the fourth studio album by U2. The band wanted to pursue a new musical direction following the harder-hitting rock of their previous album, War. As a result, they employed Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois to produce and assist in their experimentation with a more ambient sound. The resulting change in direction was at the time the band’s most dramatic. The album's title is a reference to 'The Unforgettable Fire', an art exhibit about the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.
Recording began in May 1984 at Slane Castle, where the band lived, wrote, and recorded to find new inspiration. The album was completed in August 1984 at Windmill Lane Studios. It features atmospheric sounds and lyrics that lead vocalist Bono describes as 'sketches'. Pride (In the Name of Love) and MLK are lyrical tributes to Martin Luther King Jr.
U2 – The Joshua Tree (Double-LP on 180g Vinyl)
The Joshua Tree is the fifth studio album by U2. It was produced by Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno, and was released on 9 March 1987. In contrast to the ambient experimentation of their 1984 release, The Unforgettable Fire, the band aimed for a harder-hitting sound within the limitation of conventional song structures on The Joshua Tree.
The Joshua Tree received critical acclaim, topped the charts in over twenty countries, and became the fastest-selling album in British history. According to Rolling Stone, the album increased the band’s stature 'from heroes to superstars'. It produced the hit singles With or Without You, I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For, and Where the Streets Have No Name, the first two of which became the group’s only No. 1 singles in the US. The album won Grammy Awards for Album of the Year and Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal in 1988. Frequently listed among the greatest albums of all time, The Joshua Tree is one of the world’s best-selling albums, with over 25 million copies sold.
