U2's 1991 album, Achtung Baby, celebrates its 25th anniversary today. Released on November 18, 1991, the album debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, and has been certified eight-times platinum.  Achtung Baby was released three years after U2's previous album, the companion to the Irish rocker's 1988 documentary Rattle and Hum, which was panned by critics.

Ulrich says listening to Hardwired...to Self-Destruct  -- spanning two discs and nearly 80 minutes long -- is "quite a beating," but he also feels it "may be the most consistent record we've made."
