Great versions of a great album
I really wish people would see the difference between "I don't like it" and "It's rubbish" - I prefer some of the tracks to others but they are all great interpretations.
Q outdid themselves!
Originally included with Q, this is one of the few free compilations worth buying the magazine for. I'm not a U2 fan at all but the odd song has drawn me in always with unease: studio production has too often coated U2's pop gems with a shiny sugar coating that would make any sweet-tooth music lover's head spin before they ever reach the heart of the song. Well here are the songs stripped bare and performed with utmost conviction (ignoring the 90's antics of Garbage's thin electronica by number and the predictable Snow Patrol dud) by artists who toured with U2, influenced U2 or borrowed from one of the last acts to get away with almost anything. Forget Achtung Baby, get this instead and support a worthy cause whilst shaking your leg to a U2 song without the faintest guilt or shame.
Highlight: Damien Rice covering One as if it has never been covered before and making it his own. And Gavin Friday's The Fly splatters U2's all over the wall... Patti Smith... Need I say more?
cud do better
the killers track is by far the best and most of the others just make me want to turn it off
