This review is from: U2: The Best of 1980-1990 (Audio CD)
This album is a nice, must have collector's item.
Even so if you are going to buy it, I strongly recommend the version with the B Sides.
With the regular one CD version all you get is a compilation of all the radio songs, and some songs that don't really show anyone what U2 were about in the 80's.
From Joshua Tree there are only hits in the album... only the radio songs as I call them, and War is almost neglected, as is Boy and October...
For some reason there are a lot of songs from Rattle and Hum...
I don't really understand why the B Sides version was the Limited edition, it doesn't make sense for U2 to make a 'Best of' album of only hits when they clearly are a band with such great songs that never manage to make it onto single.
Here in Portugal I didn't even see any other edition rather than the 2 CD's one, bless that.
So yeah, I recommend this version, the "limited" one if you already know U2 and love them beside their singles. ;)
If not, what bad can it do you listening to some good B sides...
