I have always been a causal fan of U2 (which I guess this compilation is aimed at), I decided to look deeper into their music and bought this greatest hits CD (with 19 tracks, not 18). I thought it was a fantastic introduction to the band, with all the tracks that I already knew and so many more. No fillers, just big hits and great music.

Already played it to death, I will definitely purchase some of their solo albums in the future. In the meantime, this is a great way for a newbie fan to become familiar with their music, and for bigger fans to have many of their favourite hits in one place.

This compilation is really what people like me have been looking for - non-fans who have heard the singles, like them and want them on one easy to digest CD. This also serves as a great introduction and my surprise love of the single "Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own" has led me to purchase the Atomic Bomb CD.It seems rock bands can get better with age! Don't knock this CD - it does precisely what it was intended to do - expose the band to a new generation of fans. So what if some hardcore fan's favourite songs aren't on it - the people who buy this CD won't want to hear those initially. If it does for others what it has done for me, then the fans should be thanking it. I always recall the flack The Best of Bob Dylan got (a similar "slimline hits only" collection) - but a colleague of mine only had to hear "Tangled Up In Blue" once from that particular CD and almost immediately amassed a 20-strong Dylan CD collection! A thrilling listen from start to finish and a couple of very good new tracks to boot.

After having released the 1980-1990 & 1990-2000 Best Of Compilations, it seemed logical that the next U2 compilation would be a 2000-2010 compilation. Apparently, U2 no longer have such patience and have delivered this single disk career overview just in time for Christmas.

This is a pattern that has increasingly been developing by U2, i.e. releasing recycled material of sorts between each new release. We've had this decade alone 3 concert DVD's (plus Zoo TV re-released) and the 1990-2000 CD & DVD compilation.

On the plus side, at least for the very casual fan, all the biggies are included on this set. For those who have been Following U2 for ages, it is highly unlikely that such fans will have any Desire listening to Pride One more time (included on all of the concert DVD's). Granted, there are 2 new tracks included but the average price for each new song for those who own U2's previous material, probably in many shapes, is steep.

The song selection is, as a set for casual listeners, as close to perfect as possible. U2 have e.g. skipped all the songs from the Pop flop; as are Zooropa and the first two albums (one hidden track though Follows). 2 UK #1's, The Fly and Discothéque are also nowhere to be found here, indicating that the songs are chosen by their world wide success. There are obvious misses, such as City of Blinding Lights, Numb and Angel of Harlem, but which songs to replace them with would be a difficult task.

U2 fans probably will, with a slight grumble, purchase this set en masse. With the entire catalogue yet to be re-released, however, patience with their recycling efforts may begin wearing thin if this process continues.

Having been a fan since the release of Boy U2 always impressed me with their integrity. However, I wasn't particularly bothered when they brought out the Best of 80-90 and Best of 90-2000 compilations as the "special edition" versions of these albums contained some interesting mixes etc,. This half arsed U218 effort at a singles compilation is appalling. The U2 website calls it a "career spanning" collection yet singles (by the way Sunday Bloody Sunday was never released as a 7" single) from the albums Boy, October, Pop and Zooropa have been omitted along with such classics as Hold me Thrill me..., A Celebration and Electrical Storm. Presumably there is a market for this kind of compilation but even a person with a passing interest in the band will have a fair bit of this material in other formats already which leaves me wondering who would want to fork out for it all over again even if it does contain a couple of new tracks one being a cover version? Save your money and avoid this rip off - or if you must, you're better off buying a couple of U2 albums from the mid-price range. NB: itunes will only allow you download the two new songs if you download the whole album so U2 are not the only ones in on this disgraceful cash in.

It should have been so simple - U2 put out a collection of all their singles on one compilation. But as with the previous 2 collections (covering the 80s and 90s) there's some significant ommisions. I know it's impossible to put all their singles on one CD, but this compilation is being mis-sold as having "all the hits on one album". If that's the case then where are hits such as The Fly, Unforgettable Fire, Wild Horses, Discotheque, Fire... I could go on.

And when are they going to put genuine hard to find singles like A Celebration on an anthology?!

Great songs - shoddy compilation.
