Audio Remasterer: The Edge.
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").

Rating 5.0 A Classic Reissued Music Lover: from rballwhizmediagroup.com -- August, 12, 2008

I Originally bought this on vinyl back in 1983, and through the years have bought it again on several times on CD. Quite Simply I think this record is Incredible. From Sunday Bloody Sunday To New Years Day To Two Hearts Beat As One The War CD is a snapshot of a band hitting their stride. The sound on this Reissue at times can border on strident but it fits the intensity of the music. If you have never purchased a U2 CD, Make this your first. You won't regret it.
