4.0 out of 5 stars Great things in small packages, 30 Oct 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Wide Awake In America (Audio CD)
This mini Album manages to take one of U2's best studio songs and improve it, not often done with a live performance. BAD, the haunting ballad best remembered as their fianle at Live Aid is captured here in all its glory. (The only other version to do it this much justice being on the Rattle and Hum video). A Sort of Homecoming displays Bono's vocal ability perfectly and takes a good studio song and makes it better by increasing its tempo. The two previously unreleased songs also capture the essence of the Unforgetable Fire album, still my personal favourite. The only thing preventing me giving this 5 stars is the lack of more live songs such as Pride and The Unforgetable Fire on the CD. I originally owned this mini LP on vinyl but the CD is well worth the price if only for the opening few bars to BAD.
