This is worth having out of historic interest alone, much like Cut the Crap, although it is rather better than Cut the Crap. The songs all seem to be too fast, like they're desperately trying to get offstage asap.

I'd seen them on the Combat Rock tour a few months earlier in the UK, and whilst that was better, they were well past their peak. But From here to eternity instead.

Not heard the VHS Video in a while but this is so much better! Sound quality not the best on a DVD but a vast improvement on VHS. More songs, about 20 mins extra and Bono hasn't yet learned his stage craft. The Edge looks very un-rockstar as does Adam with his curly hair, Larry looks like he's still in (primary) school and Bono has the most ridiculuous hairdo (even by his standards).

I could have done without Surrender & Seconds but the rest of the songs are storming, from Out of Control through to 40. This is a very loud DVD, so turn it up and destroy the neighbourhood! U2 when they were little!

The remastering has improved on the orginal album, but the interesting thing here is the extra cd. The alternate mix of I will follow is very good and the original version of Out of Control is better than the Boy version. Of the rest, boy-girl (both versions), tick tock (both versions) and Saturday Night (quite clearly the same tune as Fire) are very good, the earlier stuff has a tendency to sound like Devote era Buzzcocks or XTC and the version of Twilight is just plain weird.

One for the fans I think!
