Descripción del producto


"If you don't already know about the Christianity present in U2, or have never heard Achtung Baby, find a copy and listen to it. And if you are interested in a thoughtful engagement by a Catholic with the best of modern rock, you might like Achtung Baby: Meditations on Love in the Shadow of the Fall." -Nathaniel Peters, First Things--Sanford Lakoff

Descripción del producto

Stephen Catanzarite takes a close look at what many consider to be U2's most fully formed album through the prisms of religion, politics, spirituality, and culture, illuminating its previously unexplored depths, arguing that it's a concept album about love and the fall of man.

If I could give this trash less than a star, I would. I had no idea this book has very little, if nothing to do with U2 or the album. This is just a thinly veiled venture to make the author sound intelligent and get his theories on life out there via U2 fans.

Just lovely... compelling explorations of each track with the attendant subtleties and nuances of the joy and heartache of love as Stephen Catanzarite leads the reader through this lyrical meditation of "Achtung Baby." Gripping metaphorical character sketches and beautiful turns of phrases as well as poetic discourse on instrumentation make this wonderful little book a worthy companion to this landmark album.

This is the first book of the 33 1/3 series that I have read, and if all of them are as interesting and thought-provoking as this one, I'll be reading more. Those looking for information about the recording of the album, look elsewhere. Those looking for in-depth analysis of the songs themselves, sorry. Those looking for a traditional critical examination of U2, this is not the book you are looking for.

This book is an extended riff on the nature of guilt, sin and redemption that happens to point out those themes in the music on Achtung Baby. It's an extended metaphor about a man and a woman who fall from God's graces but ultimately find redemption in their essential humanness. It's utterly Catholic in its religious outlook.

While the logic used suffers from the circularity of all religious logic, it definitely got me to listen to an album I've loved for years with fresh ears. And if that's not what you're looking for, why the hell are you reading the 33 1/3 series?

I listened to this album a lot before reading this book, so that I could have a good reference point for the text. What I found in this book was a bridge between the world of Christian thought and the world of pop culture. Granted, Catanzarite gives a disclaimer that this is a work of his own interpretation and that there are other approaches that can be considered, but that hardly discredits the work as a whole and the ideas contained within it.

This essay challenges the reader to intellectually reconsider the Christian narrative in light of the human experience, using the story of U2's "Achtung Baby" as the scaffolding in which the ideas develop and grow. As the preface states, it is not a book about a rock album, or the personal beliefs of Bono and his bandmates, but a book about love, sin, and the interplay between these two forces. What Catanzarite has done is use Christianity as something of a literary criticism (or in this case, a musical criticism), much like one could do with Marxism or Feminism. He gives the reader (and the listener) an example of a Christian point of view and its effect on the way one experiences pop culture. The idea itself is a good one, and it only gets better from there.

In a time when Christian music is stuck between bubble gum pop tunes and tired old church hymns, in a time when the secular world and the church seem to only think of ways to one-up each other, Catanzarite's meditation on "Achtung Baby" is a breath of fresh air. Pair it with "Blue Like Jazz" by Donald Miller, and you will have a brand new understanding of Christian thought.

First off, I think Achtung Baby is one of the best albums ever recorded. And true to the title, this book was a tremendous and well written meditation on love told through the album. It really did Achtung Baby justice and made me think about it in a way I hadn't before.

And yes, the book is obviously religious, but it doesn't overtly proselytize. Instead its payload is based on the core theme of Christianity, presented in an uncluttered fashion: it is a book on love and the sacrifices necessary to maintain it. The message is universal and it cuts straight to the heart.

Many of the songs on Achtung Baby are about people failing to make these sacrifices. Catanzarite writes about why these failures occur in human relationships. It is a difficult narrative to thread through the album, but, in almost all cases, he really pulls it off.

As the previous reviewer wrote, it is a book that transcends its subject. Even if I had never listened to the album, I still would have enjoyed Catanzarite's book and will likely pick it up again in the future.
