5.0 out of 5 stars Piece of the past Sept. 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
Nice to see this US U2 single still in print. This is what the maxi-CD format is meant for: extra material that the fans want plus a single version of a song (Please).
The sound quality on the live tracks is excellent as expected, and it doesn't sound like they doctored the sound too much, either.
It's a crying shame that the US singles market has all but disappeared save for the trendiest R&B and/or pop songs out there. The material on this single was available as an import titled Pop Heart, and there was a second single available for Please as well. (Funny how the European market is still able to maintain a singles scene where every song gets 2 discs that are both short and overpriced.)
The songs here are a very good representation of the POP live sound. It appears that U2 has abandoned any pattern of releasing new singles in America, leaving us to hunt down expensive imports that often split material into separate discs or even repeat material we already have. U2 has always been a solid singles band and there are plenty of oddities out there from these releases: b-sides, live tracks, and remixes. The Please single here represents one of the best jobs they did when it came to culling material from separate import release for the American market. Highly recommended for even the casual U2 fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Power of Live U2 April 27 2003
Format:Audio CD
U2 is arguably one of the biggest rock bands in the world. The songs included on this CD are all fantastic selections, but hearing the live versions helps to show how much more powerful U2's music is when played live. This is most likely one of the best U2 singles to own.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best U2 Singles to Own March 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is not exactly the version I own as mine is called "Popheart", but consists of basically the same songs minus the studio version of "Please".
It is the live songs on this CD that make it stand out. The inclusion of a live version of "Where the Streets Have No Name", which has never been done before, and even "Please" which is perhaps the best song from POP in the first place is just great.
What often impresses me about U2 is there ability to take great songs from the studio recordings and make them greater live. I find it hard to believe that U2 could improve much on the songs included here from the original recordings, but "Please" could not sound much better than it does here (except maybe as performed on the last leg of the Elevation tour) and The Joshua Tree tracks have always been spectacular live. Get this single while you can!

5.0 out of 5 stars impressive Sept. 11 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I only ordered this CD because I had heard that "Please" was a good song. Good is not a strong enough word. The live version, in particular, is amazing. That one song, in addition to great renditions of some old classics (This is my favorite version of "Staring at the Sun") make this definitely worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars With or without spirituality May 8 2002
Format:Audio CD
The answer is clearly "with."
I agree with those who consider this a positive spiritual album. It embraces a forward thinking form of religious and artistic expression in a way that I can never tire of listening to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars amidst my top 5 U2 Cds March 26 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Although I've got most of what U2 has put out, this CD is amazing and is in constant replay mode on my player. I find myself playing the first 30 seconds of 'Where the Streets Have No Name' over and over just for the drumming. Amazing. Everything on this CD shines.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can they get any better? Sept. 20 2001
By Mike
Format:Audio CD
"Please" is one of the best songs of Pop, if not the best. It bring a connection of the "old school" political U2 with the "new techno" U2. And of course, the only thing better than a U2 CD is U2 live. "Where the Streets Have No Name" is just amazing, and "With Or Without You" is a great track as well.
After hearing this CD I will now buy Pop and add another great work of music to my collection.
