2008 digitally remastered vinyl LP pressing of the Irish wonders’ third album, originally released in 1983. 10 tracks including ‘New Year’s Day’, ‘Sunday Bloody Sunday’, ‘Two Hearts Beat As One’ and more. Universal. Pressed on heavy 180 gram vinyl, remastered and presented in a gatefold sleeve. “War”, U2’s first gold album, established them as one of the great cutting-edge bands of early ’80s rock and the definitive post-punk commercial breakout. From the insularity and ruminative splendor of their studio work, U2 blossomed into a visceral live band capable of turning elegant webs of sound into in-your-face rock and roll. The Edge’s innovative guitar work was now augmented by his piano playing (particularly on the hit single “New Year’s Day”), while Bono’s lyrics turned explicitly to politics for the first time (“Sunday Bloody Sunday”).
