Okay I'm going to do my best to break down Achtung Baby Super Deluxe Edition.

First, the packaging: The set comes in a nice box that includes 16 LP size cardboard photos from the album sessions. The other part of the set is the book. The book is great with essays by Andrew Mueller, Daniel Lanois, Anton Corbijn, Martin Scholz, Martin Wroe, Brain Eno, and Bill Flanagan. There are also tons of photos and the hand written lyrics to "One". There are also several pages dedicated to the CDs and DVDs in the set with the track listings, times, original release info, etc. The one complaint is all of the CDs and DVDs are actually housed in the inside covers rather then having individual cases (got to get the Uber edition for that).

The Music: Most U2 collectors will have 85% of the music on these 6 discs. There have been some tweeks to Achtung Baby and I think it sounds great. Zooropa appears to be the same mix but is still a great album and I hope it gets its own edition when the time comes. Disc 3 is the first of the re-mix CDs. All have been release before except the final track which is "One (Apollo 440 Remix) which basically adds a new intro, throws some beats in the middle and tags on a new drum ending. That being said, Achtung Baby is an album that really lends itself to remixes but I think Disc 4 is the better of the remix CDs. Again Disc 4 has only one unreleased song. Another remix of "One" again by Apollo 440 but I prefer this "Ambient" mix to the one on Disc 3.

Discs 5 and (especially) 6 are the reasons most are buying the set. Disc 5 has B-Sides and some unreleased songs. The Unreleased songs are mostly from the Achtung Baby sessions. The only one not from the sessions is "Even Better Then the Real Thing (Fish out of Water Remix)".

In a word: staggering. I don't know if I've ever heard an album which can even come close to capturing the kaleidoscope of sheer emotion that floods from these twelve songs. Just as Alice in Chains dragged us to the pitch black depths of heroin-addiction with "Dirt", U2 does the same, only with lost love and heartbreak as the backdrop.
Amidst the gloomy themes of the album, rays of hope still shine through in the form of The Edge's signature effect-soaked licks and some serious head-bobbing rhythm from Clayton and Mullen. The great thing about this album is its accessibility: it literally has it all. Techno/hip-hop/rockers like "Mysterious Ways" and "Even Better Than the Real Thing", and the arena-friendly chorus of "Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses" will bring a smile to the face of mainstream (and hardcore) U2 fans, while deeper, more experimental fare such as the industrial-tinged "Zoo Station" and the indescribable guitar orgasm of "The Fly" will challenge the listener on their inaugural spins but eventually yield rich rewards. The heart and soul of the album, however, lies in three songs..."One", "Acrobat", and "Love is Blindness". Listening to these in this order under the right circumstances could change a life, rekindle a forgotten passion, or simply reduce the listener to a sobbing heap. They are THAT powerful.
The range of feeling captured in Bono's wailing vocals on "One" is absolutely incredible, especially in the surreal crys that end the song. "Acrobat" dabbles in electronic influences and uses thick sonic brushstrokes to paint a cavernous musical environment that is completely encompassing (and this is before Bono even utters a syllable).

Other reviewers are covering the content and the packaging pretty well. I will mainly comment on the sound quality of the original albums. First, Achtung Baby was remastered. There seems to be some confusion over this, since some reviewers, including those in the music press, claim it wasn't remastered, but that it has only been "boosted," "tweaked," or "polished." Apparently they do not understand that those changes, however slight, are achieved through remastering. That said, I do agree that the changes are pretty subtle, and may not equate to "remastering" as a lot of people understand the term, which is to say, substantial and obvious sonic changes. To my ears, there is a slight increase in gain and presence in the newer Achtung Baby mastering, but it's nothing revelatory. Comparing the tracks of the new and old CDs in a wave editor reveals a slight, but definite, increase in overall loudness on the newer version. Despite that, I have to listen pretty closely to hear the differences. This is not a put-down of the mastering job done for this release; actually, just the opposite. It's nice to see mastering engineers using some restraint and not fixing what isn't broken. So often, it seems engineers feel the need to justify their efforts by making substantial changes, regardless of whether or not those changes need to be made. The original Achtung Baby CD from 1991 already sounded great, which is confirmed by the remastering here. If forced to choose, I would probably go with the newer mastering, but honestly, I don't think the improvements are significant enough to warrant re-purchasing the album, if your only interest is to get updated sound.

Upon first listening, the new Zooropa CD struck me as sounding identical to the original 1993 CD.
