About this item

For nearly 25 years U2 have been creating gorgeous songs of depth and meaning and scoring hits with them. How do they do it so effortlessly? Only the heavens know for sure.

The four man team of vocalist Bono, the Edge on guitar, Larry Mullen, Jr. on drums and Adam Clayton on bass have become a rock and roll institution -- a superstar band with an impeccable track record and stellar reputation as top quality hitmakers and charismatic performers with a message. This collection of 18 U2 singles is a testament to their extreme focus and staying power as a band on a mission.

U2 have always been seekers and their faith has been evident from their earliest recordings. Songs like "New Year's Day" and "Sunday Bloody Sunday" reflect a sensitivity to their immediate environment, at home in Ireland, as well as their responsibility as citizens of the world. Later singles like "Stuck in a Moment," and "Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own," are similarly reflective, though self-examination is the essence of those lyrical explorations. But no matter their subject, all of U2's work is accompanied by an abiding faith in the practice of asking the questions rather than claiming to know the answers. Of course it helps that their messages of hope and positivity are accompanied by their supreme musicianship which has grown with them exponentially since their humble beginnings as post-punkers.

Among U2's more pointed introspective pieces is the twinkling "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For." The song segues nicely into the Martin Luther King tribute, "Pride (In Name of Love)." From the same era of triumphant albums (The Unforgettable Fire and The Joshua Tree) comes the soul-searching "With Or Without You" and the jangling, urgent "Where the Streets Have No Name."

The sexy side of the band shines through on the moody "Sweetest Thing," the sultry and rhythmic "Mysterious Ways" and the electronic club cut, "Elevation." Their rock roots are represented on the recent riff monster, "Vertigo," and the similarly classic rock and roll inspired "Desire." And then there are the anthems, the inspirational calls to action which are U2's calling card: Perhaps the most well-crafted of them all in a long and distinguished career is "One," as it extols the virtues of universal love.

Two bonus tracks grace this set of songs and they are no doubt destined to become U2 classics: The collaboration with Green Day, "The Saints are Coming" and the ethereal and chiming "Window In the Skies" is a piece of vintage U2 songwriting.

The world has changed dramatically over the course of U2's career and we have watched it and them change with it. Birthed in the pre-technology era, it's nice to know that four guys can weather the storms of three decades in rock and roll and still end up loving it as well as one another. Let them be an inspiration to us all.

Especially 'Where The Streets Have No Name' and 'I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For'. The included paper listing has several pages, not only with the lyrics but also historical photos, and when and where each song was recorded.
