Under A Blood Red Sky by U2 (1983) – Manu’s Review
Recorded during the War tour in Denver, Boston and Germany and released at the end of 1983 at a time where U2 had not yet gained the super-band status, this amazing album achieved just that. It was a turning point in establishing U2’s reputation as a true super-band one has to go and watch live! In my humble opinion some live renditions in this album are much better than their studio versions. Have a go at the incredibly powerful ´Sunday Bloody Sunday´, ´Gloria’, ‘I will follow’ or ´New Year’s Day’ to best understand that! I used to be a DJ during my studies and I must confess that I never ever played a studio version of any U2 track. Just this bloody, mythical, live album !
