4.0 out of 5 stars To be honest... January 27, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I wouldn't have even considered this album, had they chosen mainstream artists to cover these songs. Luckly the bands here don't attempt to completely assimilate the classics here, but rather let them come natural. And 'natural' would be a good word to the feeling of this album in general. Nothing is too forced or strays too far from the U2 versions.
1. Sunday Bloody Sunday (Pillar): Very cool cover. The lead seems to be doing a perfect impersonation of Bono, be that good or bad. Instead Pillar takes their liberty with the guitar work, pushing this song into an alternative, almost punkish side.
2. Beautiful Day (Sanctus Real): I'd never really heard of this band, but they really seem to have an understanding of this song. Slightly sped up, but they keep all the drama intact, taking you on a ride with perfect emotional cues.
3. 40 (Starfield): The throwaway track on this album. The music, the vocals... all just seem so generic. Halfway through you can really hear him trying to convey... something. I'm just not feeling it. If you want to hear a great cover of this song, get dc Talk's last album, 'Solo'. It's the first track.
4. Love Is Blindness (Sixpence None the Richer): Sixpence covers a little-known U2 song. Her voice and music is hypnotic, but then again, what else is new? Any fan of Sixpence knows that their stuff on the radio is only their poppy crowd pleasers. This is their real music, and to say that it's nothing too different from their normal tracks is no insult. This has become one of my favorite covers on this album.
5. Gloria (Audio Adrenaline): The trademark guitar work of AudioA is the first noticable thing here. The balence of hard vocals and catchy high-octive lead guitar solo's (without being-in-your-face) reminds me of the 'Bloom' days of this band.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Very Mixed Bag... January 31, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I am an obsessive U2 fan as well as an admirer of several of these artists, so I had looked forward to "In the Name of Love" with great anticipation. While many of these acts have been nestled in the confines of Contemporary Christian Music, there is a lot of genuine creative talent here. Unfortunately, it is only on display in splotches.
Sixpence None the Richer's delicate rendition of Love is Blindness is everything you want in a cover, and by far the best work here: faithful to the melancholy spirit of the original song, and yet very much creatively reinterpreted. Jars of Clay's rootsy, almost playful version of All I Want is You is also a winner. The full frontal guitar on Pillar's Sunday Bloody Sunday really works for a song that is already aggressive and militaristic. Perhaps the biggest surprise of the album is how well Audio Adrenaline fares on their update of Gloria, a track that doesn't reinvent the wheel but really catches the life-force of the original. Nicole Nordeman's elegant version of "Grace" is a class act and welcome addition.
The Jadyn Maria/GRITS collaboration on With or Without You is pretty good musically, but I was disappointed that GRITS didn't show their stuff here. These guys are one of the best hip-hop talents anywhere, in or outside CCM, and I was a bit surprised they only "talked it through" (a la Kirk Franklin). Toby Mac's Mysterious Ways should have been the best track on the album, but Toby plays it a little too safe and a little too close to the Achtung Baby version. Delerious has already been doing a U2 tribute--on every album! I actually mean that as a complement, but besides the intro and outro, "Pride" wasn't worth the remake.

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable "tribute" to one of the greatest of all time February 13, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A couple of reviewers here mentioned that true U2 fans should stay away from this CD. I heartily disagree. I consider myself to be a huge U2 fan, and I truly found this "tribute CD" to be very enjoyable. (I use the phrase "tribute" very loosely here, because the point of this album is not really to pay tribute to U2 but to raise money and awareness for the AIDS crisis in Africa, one of the numerous causes that U2 has supported over the years.) I don't find that these artists butchered these songs at all (with the exception of maybe GRITS/Jadyn Maria's version of "With or Without You"). True, none of these songs are quite as good as the originals (after all, we *are* talking about U2 here), but they at least do the songs justice. Sixpence does a wonderful job on the stirring "Love is Blindness", and Sanctus Real and TobyMac do very upbeat, fun renditions of "Beautiful Day" and "Mysterious Ways", respectively. Other standouts are Jars of Clay's unique spin on "All I Want Is You", Todd Agnew's gritty vocals on the soulful "When Love Came To Town", Nichole Nordeman's smooth vocals on "Grace", Chris Tomlin's soaring rendition of "Where The Streets Have No Name", and Audio Adrenaline's energetic version of "Gloria". I think that if you are a fan of U2 and a fan of Christian music, you will find this to be quite an enjoyable and interesting album. If you are too closed-minded to appreciate different interpretations of these songs, then you don't have to listen. Otherwise, go check out this album. Not only will you be helping a worthy cause, but you may also find yourself pleasantly surprised.
