Why was there a need to remaster JOSHUA TREE? It's one of the greatest albums ever recorded.

@rcwatts: Because the technology exists to improve the sound quality to a point that it more closely resembles the sound of the master. It's a good thing!

U2 is one of the most terrible bands ever. Sure, they sell stuff- but that says more about the low standards of the general public than the "talent" of the "artist."

@skrutinizr: Well, we all can't be as sophisticated and music savvy as you. So many of us consider the Joshua Tree one of the greatest albums ever, I would beg your pardon on all of ours behalf and hope you can forgive our musical ineptitude.

@loubriccant: You sure this wasn't brick-walled, like so many other "modern" remasters?

@randymilleriii: Considering the was released in 1987, I'd say no, it was not "brick-walled".

@skrutinizr, I would very much like to know which present band you consider great so I may also elevate my musical taste.

Seriously. Don't feed the troll. It feeds on your comments.

I picked this up as a remastered CD boxed set off Amazon when it was a Gold Box deal for 24.99. The sound quality is outstanding. It is a somewhat noticeable improvement. However, the original did have a fantastic sound already.

I'd definitely say this deal is worth picking up at this price. If this Amazon boxed set goes on Gold Box again, it's also very much worth picking up.

I bought the Joshua Tree on cassette the day it came out, and saw U2 live in October 1987. To this date it is one of the best concerts I've ever attended rivaled only by two other shows (Rodrigo y Gabriela and Nine Inch Nails) in venues that only accommodated patrons numbering in the hundreds rather than the thousands.

I definitely can find fault with some of U2's music, but there is also a lot to love about it.

@f3l1xl33ch: Come on now! If you're going to be a music snob - shouldn't you also be going for the 180G import version? Don't stop halfway now!

@smilingboognish: Out of curiousity, which specific venue did you see that show in? There are a LOT of really high quality soundboard bootlegs of that tour out there and chances are you can get a copy of your show if you don't already have one.
Plus, one show from that tour is now legendary as being about the best concert U2 has ever played.
