The Joshua Tree (Remastered)

Originally released in 1987, 'The Joshua Tree' is considered by many to be the seminal album from U2, one of the biggest bands in music history. This 20th anniversary edition features remastered versions of all the original tracks, including such classics as 'I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For' and 'With Or Without You'. Bono's powerful lyrics are cemented by the virtouoso guitar playing of The Edge throughout the album, which never seems to sound out of fashion.
