Format: Audio CD
My big complaint here is that Universal and U2 have released this collector's edition under the pretense that it contains more than what you'd get if you ordered the deluxe version with DVD or the regular album. What is not mentioned is that while the Collector's Edition does contain a few photos, poetry, and documents, as well as the DVD and a bonus track (Fast Cars), there are NO LYRICS and NO PICTURES that are available on the regular album or deluxe version. When I spend $40 +, I better darn well get the lyrics and whatever the regular album contains. Instead, I've had to buy the regular album to get the pictures of the band and lyrics, which is a basic requisite for any U2 album. Shame on U2 and Universal for doing that to hardcore fans! I have always been against downloading without intent to purchase albums, but now I don't care what others do to U2; the world's biggest band is shafting its fans or doesn't care to protect us from Universal's greed.

U2, known primarily for grandiose convictions, an intense desire to be the biggest band in the world, and a huge, guitar-driven sound with soaring vocals, have become rather conservative in their evolution. Retreating from their 1980s work, U2 primarily focused on broadening their artistic pallette, bringing in electronica, techno, and other weird fusions. This created a problem with U2's fan base as the decade drew to a close, because the farther U2 strayed into the eclectic musical territory they were pursuing, the more difficult it was for the fans to follow their evolution. When U2 experimented successfully, they made some of the most successful music of their career (ACHTUNG BABY). Yet they grounded their experimentation with a sense of purpose, and they always kept their ambition within the elasticity of the fans' and critics' admiration. At least, they tempered their music with a good dose of rock in the early 90s. ACHTUNG BABY, one of their most experimental, evolutionary records, has been universally hailed by both fans and critics alike as some of their most significant music. ACHTUNG BABY set the course for much of the decade, with U2 going more and more into post-modernism.

Then the 1997 nadir POP happened. Not that POP was necessarily a BAD album. Instead of sounding a natural progression of the band's ambition, the experimentation never really gelled, much like R.E.M.'s UP. POP comes across as torn between two different directions - the anthem-driven, spiritually aware U2 lamenting a loss world, and a strange, dance-driven beat that is supposed to celebrate living with almost primitive desire, instead of commenting on the moral and social decline of earth.

This is the 1st U2 album I bought and I'm wasb't disappointed. Some brilliant rock songs on this like Vertigo, Miracle Drug, Fast Cars and Sometimes You Can't Make it on Your Own. All the songs on here are really good. I can't compare it to older U2 albums but compared to other U2 songs and other rock albums this is up there and a must have.

HTDAAB is an absolutely incredible album - its their best since Achtung Baby. Songs like Vertigo (a tale about a drunken party), Love And Peace Or Else (stories of a man who fights his brother for a woman they both love, and then fights real war, and terrorism) and All Because Of You (a song about birth) are three of the rockiest songs they've played yet. Miracle Drug is a heartfelt recounting of a man's fight against paralysis, which he has had since birth. Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own and One Step Closer are both emotional songs about Bono's dad, the first being a wrenching goodbye, the latter being a song of acceptance. Following the departure of Bob Hewson, is a welcome to all of their children, in Original Of The Species.
The high point of the album is undoubtably the soaring City Of Blinding Lights, recounting New York after 9/11, and giving the city a message of hope. From the chilling guitar notes, to the calm piano, and some of U2's most inspiring lyrics, this, the longest song on the album, is undoubtably one of U2's finest studio works, in the class of masterpieces such as One, With Or Without You and Walk On, and it comes out even better live.
The only real disappointment on the album is A Man And A Woman, a bland and boring song with only one or two really enjoyable lyrics. The overrated Crumbs From Your Table is a fairly good song, but just can't compare to some of U2's other relatively unknown classics, such as The First Time, Ultraviolet (Light My Way), Exit, MLK and So Cruel. Closing off this version of the album is the passive Yahweh, a good song, which is incredible when stripped down and played acoustically. Other, special editions (and the UK version) include another rocker, Fast Cars, which immediatly sets the tone for the next album.
Their best album since Achtung Baby, HTDAAB is a real pleasure to listen to.

I know a lot of U2 fans out there seem to be disappointed with their latest album, HTDAAB, but I'm not. I think it's almost a throw back to their 80s albums, which is a good thing. City Of Blinding Lights, in particular, has the classic U2 sound which really takes me back to the good old 80s. Vertigo is a rocker, with catchy, clever lyrics. Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own is a nice sentimental sort of song, which I believe Bono wrote about his dad, who passed away in 2001. Love And Peace Or Else is a great song about something which any rational person hopes for in our crazy world .. "Lay down your guns/All you daughters of Zion/All you Abraham's sons". The album closes out with Yahweh, which is a song which is really a prayer to God. All in all, a great effort by what is still a great band!
