4.0 out of 5 stars Massively underated., 15 May 2005
This review is from: Pop (Audio CD)
Pop is certainly not the disaster many make it out to be. It is difficult to see where people are coming from when they label this excellent effort a letdown. The excellent discotheque and MOFO set the tone and establish the glamrock genre of the album. However, this is not a one-dimensional album. If God will send his angels and staring at the sun are beautifully crafted gems that prove the versitility of the band. The excellent gone, last night on earth and please make this excellent fare.
Could have been U2's best album, but I am not a fan of if you wear that velvet dress, the playboy mansion or Miami, and as a huge U2 fan it is a rarity for me to dislike so many songs from any one U2 album.
Well worth the money, will stay fresh for a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Immense, 20 April 2005
This review is from: The Best Of: 1980-1990 (Audio CD)
U2 are certainly in my book the best band of all time and the 80's was their finest era. The brilliance of the joshua tree, unforgettable fire and rattle and hum are wonderfully represented here. However, my only gripe with the album is the lack of material from the band's early flashpunk era. Songs like tomorrow, like a song, with a shout, drowning man, out of control, electric co. etc... deserve inclusion in my book. Any of them could certainly have replaced when love comes to town which, although incredibly interesting, is by far the worst song here. The revamped sweetest thing is excellent though I prefer the b side original.
But perhaps I am being too fussy. This is almost as good a best of album as you will get with ome truly fantastic songs, if you have never heard U2 in their prime you must buy this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite Simply Musical Perfection, 12 Feb. 2005
This review is from: The Joshua Tree (Audio CD)
Joshua Tree is by far and away the best album ever made in the history of the world. Of course you have the hits such as where the streets have no name, Still haven't found what Im looking for and With or Without you. But there are many underrated songs which, in my opinion, should have been much bigger. Songs like Running to stand still and Red Hill mining Town are of the highest quality.
Achtung came close to beating this but it just wasn't quite there.
11/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Best thing since Achtung!, 24 Nov. 2004
To be honest I didn't have high hopes for this album. Although I expected an improvement on all that you can't leave behind (who wouldn't?) I didn't think it would be the masterpiece that it is. It has a wide variety of songs ranging from the likes of vertigo and all because of you to miracle drug and sometimes you can't make it on your own. Add the bluesy feel of Love and Peace or else and your'e onto a winner. City of Blinding lights is the best track on the album I just love the Manhattan/piano feel of it. Similar to New York on atyclb but far superior. I feel that I really shouldn't but I also love the preachy feel of Yahweh. Not in the same league as Joshua Tree or Achtung Baby but trust me this is in the top four U2 albums ever certainly.
