Publisher's Summary

This dazzling and prophetic album seems to foreshadow the disintegration of the old world order and the splintering of traditional alliances that have marked the start of the third millennium.

In this intelligent and spiritually attuned book, Stephen Catanzarite reads Achtung Baby as an extended and universal riff on the Fall of Man, showing this to be an album that Bono rightly called one "heavy mother".

Rock on: listen to more of the 33 1/3 series.

False Advertising

From the title and cover art you might think this is a book about U2's album "Achtung Baby".
This is not so.
This work is 90% theological treatise, 10% Achtung Baby.

Christian Opinion piece on the album

Lacking facts and details. Not much story about the band and support team. Hard for a non Christian secular minded person to listen to, because of faithful assumptions that not all people hold.

But if you want to hear a Christian Opinion on some songs on a U2 album it is ok.

Disappointing

I heard great things about the 33 1/3 series and when I saw they added this album to the series, I thought I would love it. I was VERY wrong.

As soon as it starts, it tells you that it will NOT be a blow by blow account of the making of the album. HUH??? I thought that's what I was getting when I downloaded it. Instead it is a very pretentious (even though the narrator tells you it will be...he was greatly underestimating that) pseudo-philisophical look into..something...I still haven't figured out what that something is, perhaps I'm too stupid to ever know.

3 hours of my life I won’t get back!!!

What disappointed you about U2's Achtung Baby?

More about religion than the album! This was the third book I have listened to in the 33 ⅓ series. Both Neil Young’s Harvest and David Bowie’s Low were great. This was a massive disappointment!
