Achtung Babies



MInimalist animation meets maximum anthem in this intriguing, video-game-like new piece for the U2 single "I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight."

Hey Dave,
Glad you enjoyed it! I'm still piecing together how the animation fits with the song, but I like their willingness to do new things like this.

One more thing-- their new album is spectacularly good. I wasn't quite sure how I felt when I first heard it, but it really grew on me, and I've been listening to it obsessively over the last six months. It's probably their best since the very underrated POP, and similar in tone, balancing between sonic experimentation and rich melody in a very blissful way. Definitely worth a download.

I will check out the new album. I didn't have a great first listen to it, but then, I could say the same for my first experience with Pop, which grew on me considerably as time went on.
