Albenrezension

Island and U2 realized that longtime fans of the band wouldn't need The Best of 1980-1990. Unlike the proposed Best of 1990-2000, which would likely boast the non-LP "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me" and the Passengers' "Miss Sarajevo," 1980-1990 contained nothing but material culled directly from the albums, which didn't exactly entice hardcore followers. So, the label and the band decided to pair the compilation with a collection of the group's B-sides from the '80s, none of which had ever appeared on an album before. For die-hard U2 fans, this is something of a godsend — not necessarily a holy grail, which would have been a complete B-sides collection, including the long-missing early EPs — since many of these tracks have been out of print for years. That's not to say they'll be entirely pleased with what they hear. The B-Sides is wildly uneven, fluctuating between a handful of lost masterpieces ("Spanish Eyes," "Sweetest Thing," "Hallelujah Here She Comes," "Silver and Gold," "A Room at the Heartbreak Hotel," "Trash, Trampoline and the Party Girl"), a momentum-crushing triptych of mediocre karaoke ("Dancing Barefoot," "Everlasting Love," "Unchained Melody"), and formless filler (pretty much everything else). Despite the uneven music, fans will need The B-Sides, not just for the handful of worthy contenders but for its sheer rarity. Not only have the B-sides themselves been difficult to locate, but the disc itself was designed as a collector's item: after the first week of sales, The B-Sides was pulled from the market, and Island shipped only The Best of 1980-1990. Clearly, this was a tactic to raise press awareness and boost sales, but that doesn't mean that fans shouldn't take advantage of its limited release.

In den 80er Jahren wurde aus U2 eine der beliebtesten Rock & Roll-Bands, die gleichermaßen für ihren mitreißenden Sound wie auch ihre großspurigen Statements zu Politik und Religion bekannt waren. Sie stellten Kreuzritter des Rock & Roll zu einer Zeit von Synthesizer-Pop und Heavy Metal dar. In den 90ern schaffte die Band es, ihre Popularität zu halten, indem sie sich zu einer selbstreflexiv ironischen Pop/Rock-Band mit Dance-Einsprengseln uminszenierten und damit ihren Status als eine der beliebtesten...
