What a wonderful idea! Bono and the boys have done so much to raise awareness for Africa, so it totally makes sense for African musicians to return the favor. The coolest thing about this album is how the artists radically reshape U2's surprisingly resilient songs. Lyrics are not only sung in English, but also French and various African languages--which somehow makes the songs sound even fresher. And the musicianship and singing is just brilliant. The whole album is great, but if you want to start with just a few songs, I recommend Mysterious Ways, One, Sunday Bloody Sunday, With Or Without You and Seconds. You'll probably want them all eventually, though!
This is an amazing album! I already loved U2, but the African flair makes these incredible songs even better.
This is amazing--absolutely amazing. It symbolizes the true bond that Bono (and U2 as a whole) has bridged between our materialistic society and a community of people who deserves nothing short of perfection in health, government, economy, and education. Power to U2!
