Product Description

Product Description

Get disc one of the above set, 16 tracks of classic U2!

Amazon.ca

U2's second decade often seemed as preoccupied with the band's burgeoning superstardom--and how to confront/confound it--as it did with creating music. The band managed only four albums during the era (only half of its '80s output), projects whose gestations seemed perennially plagued by turmoil as much as mercurial creative instincts. But as this anthology chronicles, U2 ultimately managed a considerable feat: producing a memorable, lasting body of work in a decade where one of pop music's chief attributes was its disposability. The disc mixes hits like "Mysterious Ways" and "One" with seductive soundtrack cuts (the title track to Wim Wenders's Until the End of the World, Batman Forever's "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me"), new mixes of "Discotheque," "Staring at the Sun," and "Numb," and a pair of strong new tracks, the Orbit mix of "Electrical Storm" and "The Hands that Built America," the title track from Martin Scorsese's Gangs of New York. --Jerry McCulley

Format: Audio CD
This cd is definitely an excellent and definative collection of U2 hits. All the songs are gems and each one has a style of their own. I am lucky to have been a teenager when many of these hits were created. For example,Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me is a unique electronica influenced song that came out around 1995 for the Batman Forever movie. I do believe that I was 14 when I first heard this fun song. The ending to "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me is very provocative, but it only adds to the brilliance of the song. Then there is the very upbeat and energetic "Discotheque" (the video to this song is very good as well). Other songs in this collection that one may find themselves replaying are: "Beautiful Day", "Mysterious Ways", "Staring at the Sun","One', "Numb", and "Stuck In a Moment You Can't Get Out Of". "Beautiful Day" is a very therapeutic and feel good musical track to listen to for activating your joy levels and as a positive reminder to enjoy life regardless of what happens externally. I personally liked "Discotheque" and "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me" the most because these two creative masterpieces are musical tracks where U2 dared to push the musical envelope the most (with beautiful and creative results). This cd is going to be fun and exciting to listen to if you like any of the U2 songs and/or you enjoy listening to 90's rock/alternative rock.

Even if you do have all their regular albums, BEST OF 1990-2000 is still a good addition to your U2 collection. The older songs (from the ACHTUNG BABY and ZOOROPA) are all remastered and sound better than ever. A couple other songs are remixed versions and are different than the originals (whether they're better or not is another story!).
1. Even Better Than The Real Thing
Remastered version from the ACHTUNG BABY album.
2. Mysterious Ways
Remastered version from the ACHTUNG BABY album.
3. Beautiful Day
Same as the ALL THAT YOU CAN'T LEAVE BEHIND album version.
4. Electrical Storm (William Orbit Mix)
I prefer the single version (do a search on amazon if interested), but this is still a good mix.
5. One
Remastered version from the ACHTUNG BABY album.
6. Miss Sarajevo
Greatly underrated song, revived on the VERTIGO tour, shorter than original version on the PASSENGERS album.
7. Stay (Faraway, So Close!)
Remastered version off the ZOOROPA album.
8. Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of
Album version.
9. Gone (New Mix)
Remix (POP).
10. Until The End Of The World
Remastered version, sounds great (ACHTUNG BABY).
11. The Hands That Built America (Theme From Gangs Of New York)
New song.
12. Discotheque (New Mix)
Remix, really different version, not bad but there are no BOOMCHAs at the end (which is the best part in the video!).
13. Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me
Great song from the BATMAN FOREVER soundtrack, not on any other U2 album.
14. Staring At The Sun (New Mix)
Remix version, an improvement on the POP version (in my opinion of course).

This was the first U2 cd that I listened to. This cd is the reason that I have now been out and bought every single one of their albums. I see here a lot of fans saying that these are not U2's best songs and now that I've heard the rest of their albums, I agree. But when I first bought this cd, I didn't know that! I listened to this, and I instantly loved nearly every song. Thats what this cd is about, in my opinion. Its a gateway for new fans to start listening to U2. Its not a compilation of U2's best songs, Its's a compilation of U2's easiest songs to listen to.
Achtung Baby is a brilliant album but it's such a complex album that it's not one i loved right away. Having listened to this though, I knew how great U2 was and I had the faith in them to keep listening to it, and pretty soon I was hooked.
That's what a lot of fans who already had all their albums don't quite understand. They already know how great U2 is, they don't need this. This is a new fans cd.
Thats why I don't listen to it much anymore, (except for songs like Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill me and Miss Sarejevo, which I don't have) because I'm not a new fan anymore, but when I was, I was literally listening to it all the time.
This album isn't getting the reviews that it deserves. Thats why I give it a 5/5.

This is a great follow-up to the 1980-1990 CD from 1998. Chronichling the material that the band made during the 1990s, this absolutely is the 'Best Of' their 1990s era..well almost.
Several 'new' songs appear on this collection. The 'new' ones are the new song "Electrical Storm" which is awesome especially the William Orbit mix. The main thing that kind of throws me off a bit is the redoing of the singles from their 1997 album "Pop". While the redone versions are very good, they don't hold a candle to their previous incarnations available on their parent album.
On the other hand, "One" absolutely deserved it's place on this CD as it's one of their most compelling songs of their entire career. A definate classic for the ages this song is.
This is quite a well done collection. The 2-CD edition is the version I recommend over this 1-CD version but even this version is worth getting as it offers some new material, unlike the previous collection.
