The Packaging
The first surprise is that the DVD is available in two different kinds of packaging. One version comes in the usual digipack-cover as we know it from the Boston DVD. Inside you find the booklet in the usual DVD upsize format. The second version, in contrast, comes in a suprising format: its a standard cd jewel case with a booklet in the same format. A pretty unusual format for a DVD and day-to-day customers might easily mix up this version with a normal audio CD.

The Content
The DVD contains the entire slane castle concert from September 1st. 'Mysterious Ways' is not part of the concert, but listed as a 'bonus track'. The reasons for this are still unknown. The concert without Mysterious Ways lasts 1:38h, the bonus track is 6:26 min long. Furthermore the DVD contains a remastered version of the 'Unforgettable Fire' Documentary, which has been available before on the 'The Unforgettable Fire Collection' VHS from 1985. Bonus-Features include the already mentioned Mysterious Ways track, a DVD-ROM section with screensavers, desktop wallpapers, an elevation tour calendar and weblinks, plus - for the the first time ever - the possibility to view 3 songs from the show in a 360° perspective.

The Concert
The most noticeable fact about this concert is the perfect mood the band was in on this evening. What seemed somewhat artificial and nervous in the Boston show, you can see much better here - the band enjoyed playing a second time in front of such a crowd at Slane Castle. Maybe it's the fact that it was not planned to release this concert for sale. Some incidents before the shows made both Slane concerts very emotional. The huge crowd brings a terrific spirit to the homes of all U2 fans, and the interaction with fans is much better here than in Boston.

I have been a loyal fan since 1988. I've seen them live 8 times live (which is not a lot compared to some, but still a good amount) and own pretty much everything you can get your hands on. This show is by far one of the most emotional and powerful shows I have seen them perform. It is also the first time that I was brought to slight tears by watching a rock and roll video (understand that Bono's father passed away the week prior. ("Communication. Talk to each other.")) Even my friend's wife, who hates all concert videos in general, was drawn into this one (My friend said that he had never seen her do this before with a concert video). I won't go into all the details, you can read some of the prior reviews for that. I'm just a 15 year fan throwing in my hearty approval.
Oh, this DVD is obviously much better than the televised version a year ago. That broadcast only played a few of the songs and interrupted them with endless commericals.
Also, for those wondering why "Mysterious Ways" is included as a bonus feature...it is because the director felt that it did not fit with emotion of the rest of the concert. I agree with his decision. You do get to see Bono's daughter come on the stage at the end (Eve) which is fun.

I am a huge U2 fan, and have seen plenty of the dvds they have out. This by far is the best one out there. If you have boston, this is better. Heres a song by song review:

1.Elevation-Genius! The best oppening of a concert ever!

2.Beautiful Day-Awesome second song. Bono sounds awesome and Edge is the best backing vocalist of all time!!

3.Until The End Of The World- This is funny because on the second audio option before Edge's solo begins you hear some women scream Bono's name.

4.New Years Day-Another classic played very well. I love Edge's woooaah on this one, and the piano part too.

5.Out Of Control-This is where the concert goes from Good too great. This is an awesome rendition when Bono tells the story of the band.

6.Sunday Bloody Sunday-This song is all about drums for me!!(im a drummer). The drums sound so awesome on this song. Excellent!!!

7.Wake Up Dead Man-This song sounds awesome in standard tuning compared to half step down tuning, best performance of this one.

8.Stuck In A Moment-All I can say for this is Listen to Edge!! I cant help but laugh! I wonder if he realizes he sounds like a girl?

9.Kite-And after this, the concert explodes. Bono sounds great in this song!! It was written for his dad, which makes it even better.

10.Angel of Harlem-Another classic performed flawlessly and better than any other time.

11.Desire-WOW!! They really pulled this one out of the box. I love how Larry and Adam join Edge and Bono on the heart.

12.Staring at the sun-My only complaint, Stay would have been better, but this is good to.

13.All I Want Is You-I really like that Bono deicates the song to his wife.

U2's performance at Slane Castle is unique in that it shows what the band members are like as people, and unlike a lot of their other concerts, this one relies almost completely on passion and musical performance rather than extravagent showmanship. This concert was destined to be filled with passion since it not only was set in the band's home turf, but also it was performed shortly after the death of Bob Hewson, Bono's father. What is truly amazing about this concert is how pleasant the band was feeling. In the Boston and 2005 Chicago concert, the band members rarely smiled, but in this one there is very few moments when they are not smiling. Even Adam Clayton smiles.

Now on to the set list. The opening song ",Elevation," is easily one of the best opening tracks they could have picked. Unlike many of their songs, this one was designed to be a sing along and is the perfect to get the crowd ready. "Beautiful Day" is a cheerful song that features excellent back up vocals and guitar riffs from the Edge. "Until The End Of The World" is one of my favorites. This song just flat out rocks, and it rocks even more in an arena. When Bono and Edge act like buffalos and when Bono kicks Edge's guitar are about the only times we get a showy performance in this concert. "New Year's Day" features one of Adam's best performances and it's always nice to see and hear Edge play the piano. From there we move to the strangely moving performance of U2's first single ",Out Of Control.
