2017 Remaster with 16-Page Booklet featuring Photography by Anton Carbijn
After the richly experimental odyssey of 1997's Pop, U2 came to the decision that it was time to remind people of how they had come to prominence in the first place: by making glorious, celebratory rock music, this time for a new millennium. In doing so, they emerged in 2000 with All That You Can't Leave Behind, which has sold a spectacular 12 million copies and achieved something that no other artist had done, or has since. The album contained the Grammy-winner for Record of the Year not just once, but twice, with "Beautiful Day" in 2001 and "Walk On" in 2002. Those were just 2 from a bounteous haul of 7 Grammys with fellow singles "Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of" and "Elevation" also taking home hardware.
All That You Can't Leave Behind also marked the happy reunion of what you might call the U2 dream team. Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno, who had helped the band create the sound that made them world-beaters with The Unforgettable Fire and The Joshua Tree, and again with Achtung Baby, were back in the producers' chairs. Additional production was also provided by original collaborator Steve Lillywhite (Boy, October, War, and How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb). The no-nonsense, back-to-basics results were explosive and joyful to say the least and it outdid its predecessor by hitting No. 1 in a whopping 32 countries. Remastered and pressed on 180g vinyl with accompanying download. The artwork comprises a 16-page booklet featuring lyrics and photography by Anton Corbijn.
