5.0 out of 5 stars A marvellous read, 8 Nov 2002
Flanagan's "U2 At The End Of The World" is an unmissable insight into four lads from Dublin who have become without doubt the biggest band in the world.
Starting in 1991, during the recording of Achtung Baby in the Hansa Studios in Germany and spanning the heights of the Zoo TV spectacle and the recording of Zooropa, this book is a condensed four-year look at the Irish band.
Unlimited access to the band, their staff and exclusive VIP areas means that Flanagan is always there to capture the action, adding his own unique and intelligent insights along the way.

All That You Can't Leave Behind ~ U2

Just when you think they've run out of ideas and novelty... U2 come up with this. Three sucessive singles and three sucessful number ones so far.
Without a doubt some of the greatest hits of recent times are contained in this album; must notably "Beautiful Day", "Stuck In A Moment", "Elevation", "In A Little While" and the brilliant "Kite".
If you want an album that you won't get sick of in a week this is it. Trust me when I say this is a must buy.
