Q Magazine - U2 "Achtung Baby" Issue
On October 31st, yet another seminal album from our youth will be re-released, remastered and having us re-living our glory days....but only for a few minutes 'cause we're older now and that sort of behaviour wouldn't be dignified. Q Magazine is recognizing the re-release of "Achtung Baby" with an issue featuring the band and discussions on the album, but the best part is that the magazine has put together a tribute album that is coming with the magazine. Featuring the likes of Nine Inch Nails, Patti Smith, Depeche Mode and more offering their interpretation of 1992's most famous songs. We give you the one we we're looking forward to the most, Jack White covering "Love is Blindness." Jacks soulful wail is the perfect compliment to the songs sentiment, being desperate and longing. Definitely not U2's version (it is Jacks interpretation after all) but very, very good in its own right. Unfortunately, the version of the mag with the CD is only going to be available in the UK, but we're sure those specialty magazine shops in the colonies will have it. If not, it'll most likely be available online everywhere hours from release.
