  • U2 burst onto the scene at the onset of the '80s with a majestic, uplifting, earnest approach and a unique textural sound that endeared them to fans and critics alike. They spent the rest of the decade growing up in public, solidifying their status as post-punk icons, marrying the good intentions of old-school alternative rock with the epic sonic scale of classic '70s rockers, never sounding less than totally original and never pausing for a hits compilation--until 1998. BEST OF offers a good representation of the complex body of work that made the band a legend.
  • Fittingly, the album begins with the debut's "I Will Follow," a statement of commitment to pursuing truth and spirituality despite continual and inevitable misgivings. "Desire" mates Bono's lyrical fervor with a modified Bo Diddley beat to fine effect. New world meets old on the bluesy B.B. King collaboration "When Love Comes to Town." Closing things out, "All I Want is You" shows the moody, reflective side of the band, giving Bono a chance to croon and the rest of the band to exhibit the understated side of their instrumental might.

Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (12/11/98, p.80) - "The martial snares and boyish histrionics that made them one of the world's biggest rock acts have held up pretty well....As for disc 2, aside from the playful `Sweetest Thing' and some worthy covers, the B sides sound like it." - Rating: B

Anette Green on
an excellent collection of some of u2's greatest hits. u2 is one of the (widely considered) greatest rock bands ever created, and they have strengthened their fan base by not only creating great music but supporting lots of charitable events as well, playing in lots of concerts for charity. you should buy this album

Sarah Gifford on
This is a must own for all Fans of the legendary U2. All the songs on here are so amazing, and sung with such conviction, making for a really nice collection. My faves would have to be "Angel Of Harlem" and "With Or Without You", both of which have particularly nice lyrics. Excellent buy, you cant go wrong with this best of album.
