Nice package for U2 fan
on 26 November 2004
I was very excited while standing on the cold street in front of a CD store on midnight, 22 november. New U2 album is something worth waiting at that conditions, especially if you can get a Box Set (last one!) at special price.
What's in there? Fist of all, a CD. It is great, you've probably heard about it. I've posted my review on CD's page, I think it is one of the U2's best.
But what about the rest of the package? If you are U2 fan, you would like to have it. If not, then it is not a big deal. Booklet is something only a fan will love, others might consider it boring. But it is interesting, and I recommend it to everyone. Try to read it, at least the Declaration of Human Rights, which is "stamped" with band members palms. Nice.
DVD is better part of a package. It contains small documentary about making some of the songs, plus several versions of three songs (Vertigo, Crumbs, Sometimes), and it shows that U2 with only voice and a guitar can still record a hit song which sounds better than many bands with several performers!
In my opinion, it is better to buy CD+DVD version, especially because it is packed in standard CD case. Booklet is something you will hardly place in your CD rack.
But if you are a trully U2 fan, this Box Set is something you should consider.
