More of the Same
More outtakes and b-sides. Which is ok, not one bad song, but so many that sound nearly like one you liked years ago. The edge-guitar has become a boring cliche and what is interesting about the sounds is probably stuff Eno mixed in while the others were napping.
This record is nothing more than an excuse for another world tour and 2 or three new songs for the stage.
Compare this to Achtung Baby or Joshua Tree and you see what U2 have become: another Rolling Stones!
Maybe it isn't a coincidence that they both shout how they are the biggest and the best in the world.
Still, this cd has it's moments and if you like the last two, then you will be happy with more of the same.
