2. U2, 'Achtung Baby' (20th Anniversary Edition)

U2’s 1991 transformation from earnest seekers in pilgrim black to gaudy future-pop subversives is one of rock’s great acts of rebirth. The blanket coverage in remixes, B sides and embryonic demos is uniquely instructive – a lust for change recounted step by step, even the wrong ones.
