The Real Thing: Best of U2

D.M. Cross "D_Cross"
 
Joshua Tree (Remastered / Expanded) (Super Deluxe Edition) (2CD/DVD)
Joshua Tree (Remastered / Expanded) (Super Deluxe Edition) (2CD/DVD)
"Rarely does an artist reach a commercial & artistic peak simultaneously.  One of the best albums of the 80s, for sure, maybe one of the best ever... the remastering on this set blows, but it's worth it for the DVD and second disc of B-sides (that show this could've easily been a great double album)."
Rattle & Hum

"Some may disagree, but really carries on in similar Joshua Tree theme and is song-for-song solid.  Tuneful & Soulful."
The Unforgettable Fire (Super Deluxe Edition 2CD+DVD)

"Similar sounds as on Joshua Tree, a little looser and less-formed, but very emotive.  A very contemplative album."
Achtung Baby

"U2 goes techno?  Hardly.  People who said that obviously hadn't heard the album.  A shift in location yielded a slight shift in sonics, but songwriting is still solid and emotional."

"Great '80s rock record.  Big drum sound by producer Steve Lillywhite.  Political, anthemic rock done right."
Pop

"U2 goes techno... again?  Hardly.  A great album that gets more stripped down as it goes, until the last song is just the bare bones "Wake Up Dead Man."  Underrated."
Boy [2 CD Remastered Deluxe Edition]

"Great debut album, still sounds exciting today.  Was right there with the early '80s guitar bands such as Big Country & the Alarm."

"Much more successful than the "Zooropa" album at getting some killer soundscapes, sketches, and a few grooves.  A great chill-out record."

"The well seemed to be running a bit dry on this album.  Not one of their best, but it has its moments."
Wide Awake In America

"EP with 2 live songs / 2 b-sides.  Worthy of its budget price for fans of The Unforgettable Fire period."
Zooropa

"Not an album proper, so much as a collection of left-overs.  Some good moments, a couple truly wretched moments (ie - Babyface)."
No Line On The Horizon

"Better than the previous Atomic Bomb. There are some real duds here, but the title song and Fez I really like."
All That You Can't Leave Behind

"U2 goes back to rock?  Hardly.  Sounds like they tried to make a pop soul album.  Lots of uninspired moments here, some truly stupid lyrics.  Very disappointing."

"Never thought I'd say this of a U2 album...  this is truly a TURD.  Embarrasingly simple-minded and boring, uninspired...  just dreadful.  What happened?"
Wrecking Ball

"With Larry in the drum seat and Daniel Lanois producing, is it any wonder the sound is very reminiscent of Joshua Tree-era U2?  Excellent album."
Robbie Robertson

"The two songs that features all of U2 are an absolute treat.  "Sweet Fire of Love" and "Testimony" are absolute gems that should be included in U2's body of work."
