Under a Blood Red Sky captures U2 on the brink of becoming the world's most significant live band. It was originally released in 1983 but still sounds fresh and exhilarating 25 years later.

Following the critically acclaimed War, which was released earlier in the same year and helped transform U2 into arena rock stars, Under a Blood Red Sky features material from U2's first three albums. A thrilling rendition of "Sunday Bloody Sunday" is the centerpiece of the record, and it is delivered here in outstanding fashion, with unsurpassed fire and passion.

Many of these renditions are considerably tougher and less textured than their studio counterparts, but the band manages to draw on the energy from the crowd to deliver timeless performances. U2's reputation as the world's greatest live act, due in no small part to the sweeping success of Under a Blood Red Sky, would not be put to question for four more years, when The Joshua Tree won them their first Grammy Award and indisputably established them as simply the world's greatest rock band.

Rolling Stone hailed Under a Blood Red Sky as "one of the 50 moments that changed rock and roll." It remains as relevant today as a quarter century ago, always inferential of a global backdrop of war and violence, and always the pride of any rock and roll collection.
