Our Review

U2 ended the decade as arguably its most important band. Certainly they carried themselves with a self-importance that pointed up their serious intentions towards world issues and their own evolution in sound. This non-chronological collection of hits and integral album tracks represents a powerful look into their stylistic versatility and emotional gravitas. “Pride (In the Name of Love)” stands as a towering anthemic opener, bursting with layers of shimmering, chiming guitars and Bono’s trademark yawp that leaps from centerstage to the back of the arena without losing nuance or impact. Even on the group’s most reflective moments, Bono serves grand dynamics. “Bad” is heartwrenching. “All I Want is You” longs with a somber hangover. While the obvious hits — “New Year’s Day,” “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For,” and “Sunday Bloody Sunday” — are wrapped in gorgeous production details that capture a band that understood the beauty of recordmaking as well as the need to speak the truth as they viewed it. Pompous? Grandiose? Perhaps. But also, great fun and only the first step in their musical journey.

incredible (5 stars)
One of the most influential bands of all time putting it in one album. This album never gets old, i can listen to it anywhere anytime and it will be incredible. I love it! It's perfect!

OH MY GOD (5 stars)
this is unbeileivable. the genre thingy shouldn't even say rock...it should say incredible or perfect or amazing[ly good]

Best band of the '80's! (5 stars)
Easily the best band of the '80's. Nobody is even close. They have to be one of the top five to ten greatest bands of all-time. This is a great collection. "Pride (In the Name of Love)" is one of my favorite songs ever. As for the '80's, "Pride" is probably the best song of the decade. "Need You Tonight" by INXS is the only song I can think of that could even touch it. That, of course, isn't the only good song o

Through a combination of zealous righteousness and post-punk experimentalism, U2 became one of the most popular rock & roll bands of the '80s. They were rock & roll crusaders during an era of synthesized pop and heavy metal, equally known for their sweeping sound as for their grandiose statements about politics and religion. The Edge provided the group with a signature sound by creating sweeping sonic landscapes with his heavily processed, echoed guitars. Though the Edge's style wasn't conventional,...
