OK, Window In The Skies, far from U2 at its best but an OK effort. Has a rather Beatlesque quality to the song, and a superb video to match, definitely worth a view!! Anyway, the best thing about this single isnt the single itself, its the live tracks that accompany it. Zoo Station has to be one of U2's finest moments, (especially with the lyrics) and this is a great live version taken from their performance at Buenos Aires this year during the Vertigo Tour.
However, the next track, Kite is real gem. This live track was performed in Sydney, the last song to be played at this particular concert on 10th November 2006. I always thought this was a beautiful song and certainly a highlight from the All That You Can't Leave behind album, but this live version gives this song all new depth. A moving performance with an accompanying digeridoo and a great guitar solo from The Edge at the end. To any U2 fans this single is worth the pennies!!
