5.0 out of 5 stars Mesmerising, 7 Jun 2010
After seeing the fantastic Dublin and Sheffield U2-360 concerts last year I was keen to see how this could be translated onto DVD. I am not dissapointed. This DVD/BluRay is a stunning acheivement.

Performance-wise the band are on top form banging out tune after tune with precision and swagger. The song selection for me is pretty much spot on. If you didn't like 'Get on your Boots' first time round then check out the live version.... IT ROCKS!!! Funked up versions of Mysterious Ways and Crazy tonight, stadium rocking tracks Vertigo and Streets have no Name..... oh and Edge really nails the guitar solo on Unknown Caller, definatley worth a few rewinds!

Visually this DVD… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as it gets.., 25 Sep 2009
I can't imagine a better performance of these preludes. The Sunken Cathedral in particular is a massive achievement.

Regarding sound quality: they have obviously cleaned up the recording well with this re-issue and there is zero hiss, just a great atompheric quality to it. Not at all harsh and perhaps slightly difussed sounding, which suits the material perfectly in my opinion.

Really nice package with some great insights into the early sound of U2.

Unless you happen to have the 6" vinyl singles from the Boy album most of the tracks on the bonus CD will be new to you. Speed of life is an out-take from the Boy session and fits in with the vibe of the album perfectly. There's also killer live versions of Boy/Girl and 11 o'clock tick tock.

The only weird one for me is Cartoon World which is a bit of an oddity.

In terms of cost I think this package is good value. 15 to 17 quid is only a bit more than what you used to pay years ago for a single CD album.

Oh, and the Boy album itself is brilliant.
