U2 ‘Achtung Baby’ is This Weekend’s ‘Album Side’ on Your Sunday Brunch

Do you own a copy of U2's "Achtung Baby"?

The Irish band is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the release of their seventh studio album in November of 1991. On Halloween, "Achtung Baby" will be reissued in five different formats and a documentary about the making of the record called "From The Sky Down" premiered at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival and was shown earlier this month on television.

The album won a Grammy Award in 1993 for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. (That category name is as long as some of U2's song titles)

Recording sessions for "Achtung Baby" began at Berlin's Hansa Studios just before Germany's reunification in 1990. Most of the recordings were completed in the band's hometown of Dublin in 1991.
