OVERRATED: U2's 'Achtung Baby' pricing

There's no denying that after the troubling overreach of "Rattle and Hum," U2's 1991 album was a musical landmark and maybe the band's creative peak. But as deserving as it may be for the anniversary treatment, some of the prices are deluxe even by classic rock reissue standards. At more than $120 for a four-LP set and a budget-busting $400-plus for an "Uber Deluxe" edition, they had better sound "even better than the real thing."
