5.0 out of 5 stars City of Ruin, Walk On, Incredible, December 4, 2001
By 
This review is from: America: A Tribute To Heroes by Various Artists (2001) (Audio CD)
I was just in a local Sam Goody and Springsteen's "My City of Ruin" came over the speakers. There was maybe 15-20 people in the store and everybody got totally silent, and just listened to the song. It's sounds incredible, and Bruce sings it perfectly.
U2's "Peace on Earth" into "Walk On" is extremely moving, with Bono and the Edge screaming "Ah-lay, Ah-lay, Ah-lay" at the end of the song.
Eddie Vedder's "Long Road" is another highlight.
The sound and production are excellent (with the exception of Enrique and Mariah, who use so much echo to hide the fact they do not sing all that well (Mariah has a strong voice, but not on that night)). It really captures the mood of the telethon, and those first couple of weeks after the horrible events of the 11th.
